Business-savvy actress Jessica Alba has added another role to her list: landlord. The founder of The Honest Company is renting out her Beverly Hills guesthouse, which she purchased in 2002 for $1.1 million.
Although Jessica hasn’t lived there for some time, she says she has always had a fondness for the 2,286-square-foot home, which includes two bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. As a frequent traveler, Jessica was inspired by The Bowery Hotel and Gramercy Park hotels in New York and called upon
Consort Design to bring her vision to life. The four-storey space now acts as a luxury vacation rental.

The first living room uses a curated palette to highlight its California-cool vibe. A green sofa is the focal point of this room, standing out against camel leather chairs and a moody navy blue wall.
The home’s four floors are connected by an industrial corkscrew staircase, which inspired the old-world theme according to Consort co-founder Brandon Quattrone.
Contemporary art and bold patterns complement the home’s jewel-toned envelope with a mixture of cool and warm tones.
A royal blue den, which can be converted into a third bedroom, contains large windows that flood natural light into the space. White accents, such as a pendant light and drapes, stand out against the saturated walls.
A second living room with 20-foot ceilings uses the home’s vertical configuration to its advantage. Expansive windows overlook the hilltop views and a red shag rug grounds the space.
A small office nook on the outskirts of the living room offers a place to get work done. Geometric accessories and a chic silver mirror add style.
A sleek bar blends in with the living room’s sophisticated aesthetic while a
vintage painting adds to the home’s old-world feel.
This monochromatic space makes us feel anything but blue. A mixture of shades and textures, courtesy of mid-century and vintage pieces, add dimension to this corner and create the illusion of being inside a jewelry box.
This principal bedroom shies away from the home’s blue theme and turns to a more neutral palette. A mid-century light fixture and ebony floors add contrast against the white walls.
To stay true to Jessica’s eco-friendly lifestyle, low-VOC paints, sustainable carpeting and organic mattresses were used to dress the home.
Vintage pieces, like this rotary telephone, add character to the principal bedroom.
This high-contrast principal ensuite oozes sophistication while gold accents add a touch of glamor.
A second bedroom plays on the home’s jewel tones to create a contemporary space. Velvet blue chairs and geometric artwork add an eclectic look against the classic bed frame.
Colorful pillows and artwork add to the bedroom’s playful feel while still maintaining sophistication.
The house, designed by
Consort, uses rich tones to bring Jessica’s jewel box dream to life.
