Through her company, Brilliant Home Designs, Compass Realtor and artist Gina Covello has transformed a nearly 2500 square foot 1939 Sherman Oaks residence into a contemporary and stylish single level home and guest bungalow that retains the charm and sophistication of a bygone Hollywood era.

Gina Covello is not only a successful real estate Broker in Southern California, she is also an esteemed abstract artist whose work has been displayed in the staging of a variety luxury multi-million dollar estates on the market. By applying her artistic panache to home renovation as well, she recently designed and completely remodeled a 1930s classic Hollywood style bungalow with guest house in Sherman Oaks. The home is a delightful masterpiece blending contemporary style with old-world charm.

Nestled in the quiet and coveted foothills at 4237 Murietta Avenue, the residence was given a nearly yearlong make-over both architecturally and aesthetically. Using her distinct artist’s eye for detail, color and emotion, Gina has redesigned the bright 4 bedroom 3.5 bath home into a unique and spacious property that includes the modern amenities, privacy and character today’s homebuyers are searching for.

The 2500 square feet includes an additional renovated and fully-permitted guest bungalow that reflects the same elegant style and open air quality. Each room is adorned with picturesque windows and wide French doors with classic exterior awnings. High ceilings and recessed lighting, complimented by wood floors, custom-tiled bathrooms, ornate molding, brick fireplaces and designer fixtures add to the modern ambiance. An outdoor stone patio and large, landscaped, secluded backyard make it the ultimate expression of the California lifestyle.

“I use my artistic sensibilities and imagination to capture the essence and integrity of each particular residence,” says Gina. “I find by decorating with my own art, I can add a personal and unique stamp to my staging and presentation. It has made all the difference in how my listings are viewed and gives potential home owners a glimpse into the possibilities of expressing their own style.”

Influenced by masters such as Picasso, Kandinsky and Basquiat, as well as modern street art, Gina infuses her personal life and world travels into her work. Her time living in Rome and her appreciation of Aboriginal art while in Australia, has had a strong impact on her style and vision over the years.
