Haute Residence Sits Down With Halsey’s Interior Designer Brianna Bitton

Ashley Frangipane, better known as Halsey, has taken the world by storm since she first came on the scene in 2012 with hits like “Bad At Love,” “New Americana,” “Closer” featuring The Chainsmokers and “Him & I,” a collaboration with her ex-beau, famous rapper G-Eazy. The singer is unapologetically open about her life, unafraid to let the world know exactly what she is going through and how she is feeling. The singer has candidly addressed personal struggles, relationships and uses her platform to bring attention to political and social justice issues, turning her into a voice of her generation. Most recently, she gave her fans and the world an intimate first look at her new home designed by Los Angeles native Brianna Bitton of Bitton Design Group. Haute Residence caught up with the interior designer to discuss the singer’s design aesthetics, favorite artists, the incorporation of Playboy covers throughout the home and more.

HR: What are Halsey’s favorite brands, designers and artists in relation to the furnishing and artwork inside the home?

BB: We had a lot of fun incorporating custom furnishings into the home to reflect her personal style, but we were definitely drawn to House of Hackney for pillows, lamps and accessories, as well as Ryan McGinley for artwork. We worked with one of our favorite local artisans, A Beautiful Mess Home, to create amazing one of kind pieces. For vintage finds, we love The Mart Collective in Venice, CA.


HR: Given the public’s access to Halsey’s private life, how did you go about creating privacy, comfort and solitude in her home?

BB: Creating a comfortable, relaxing oasis was definitely a priority for us throughout the design process. One way we accomplished this was through the greenery. We have a 10’ living wall in the entry, as well as various types of palm trees throughout the home. The greenery instantly creates a feeling of good energy, provides clean air and comfort. We also wanted the master bedroom to be cozy, yet stylish. We took a lot of inspiration from our hospitality design roots and treated it like a hotel room. The monogrammed bedding and ensuite seating area give that hospitality feel to a residential space.
