Fashion entrepreneur Natalie Bond Bloomingdale brings her singular sense of style home, outfitting her chic Bel Air property with a sophisticated palette, exceptional furnishings, and runway-ready accessorizing.
As the brainchild of Natalie Bond Bloomingdale, The SIL is one of a kind—quite literally. Short for “Stuff I Love,” the online fashion incubator is a place for the former publicist to shine a light on up-and-coming designers and showcase pieces you can’t buy anywhere else. The young mogul applies this same M.O. to creating her home as well, making her a perfect client for interior designer Amy Meier. The results are serene and irresistible, at least from a shopping devotee’s perspective. “Amy is so naughty,” Natalie says. “She knows exactly what I have to have—and nails it every time.”
Meier, who works deftly with neutral tones and well-curated dramatic flourishes to create intriguing rooms, was a perfect palette partner for Bloomingdale’s aesthetic. In lieu of look-at-me color stories, it’s bold silhouettes, indulgent textures, and thoughtful accessorizing that do the talking. Skirted swivel chairs, curvy sofas, and vintage casegoods bubble with cocktail party-ready personality. “They just don’t make things like they used to, do they?” Bloomingdale says. And while the fashionista’s Bel Air pad is outfitted in an inventive mash-up of the classic and contemporary pieces that she loves, it’s Meier’s expert editorial eye and gift for crafting cohesive spaces that allow it to coalesce so sublimely.
Inspired, impeccable pairings, like a pale pink onyx vanity and delicate gold chair in her bedroom’s dressing area, along with tailored window treatments, scenic wallpaper, and a tree lamp with feather fronds in the living room, give the house an air of polished whimsy that lets the Texas-born entrepreneur’s individuality shine.
“My approach to art and design is much like my approach to fashion: I have to feel drawn to [and] moved by the piece—it has to have meaning,” she says. “I gravitate toward the unique, the unfamiliar. I’ve always marched to the beat of my own drum.”
