The jet-setting investors of Arena Ventures have mastered the art of business travel.
Though Los Angeles is home for this four-person team, weekly trips to San Francisco mean a lot of time spent away.
Expensive hotels and room service quickly lost their lustre and, with sky-high rents in San Francisco, a lease on a four-bedroom apartment wasn’t any more appealing.
So Arena Ventures found a one-bedroom apartment and enlisted the help of one of their own investments, Laurel & Wolf, a Los Angeles-based interior design startup that pairs clients with designers to refresh specific rooms for $US149 each. For $US249 a room, you can pick from three different designers whose concepts you can preview before selecting.
Laurel & Wolf designer Erica Johnston helped the team transform their one-bedroom apartment into a two-bedroom space where the team could both live and work when they’re in town. Let’s take a look inside.
