Decadent Home of Tyson and Kimberly Chandler

Nestled in the Hidden Hills of Los Angeles is the family home of Tyson and Kimberly Chandler. While the family name is immediately recognizable to anyone who follows the NBA Center of the Phoenix Suns, the Chandler’s are also known for their acute sense of style. Kimberly, who can be seen in fashion circles, spotted at New York Fashion Week in coveted front row seats for Suno, Alexander Wang and Valentino, has been described as having a “pitch-perfect” sense of style. And this year, the couple was spotted at Coachella rocking out and having fun in the most fashion-savvy of ways. So, it’s no surprise that when looking to design the family home, they turned to LA-based interior designer Jeff Andrews, whose focus on sophisticated yet livable interiors appealed. 

The interior is filled to the brim with classic details in each and every room. From an open and airy living room to a glamorous family dining area, beautiful architectural details and gleaming accessories abound in this polished interior.

The kitchen in this home is a room unto itself. In true California style, this kitchen has been designed with entertaining in mind, with an abundance of space for preparing meals. With three children, the Chandler kitchen does double-duty as an area for dining with an oversized bar and counter space that little ones can eat at.

The family room has a mix of modern and rustic details. An oversized sectional creates a cozy vibe in the space. A hardwood coffee table adds rough-spun texture. For accents, the family room features a variety of stunning textiles. Modern suzani pillows in shades of gray and brown are used to marry the room’s soothing neutral color palette.
