As a tech start-up veteran, Adam Singer isn’t afraid of risk. So when he needed a designer to remodel his Hollywood Hills bachelor pad, he hired Caitlin Murray and Caitlin McCarthy (www.caitlinmccarthydesign.com)—because he knew they had the guts to take inspiration from his vibrant art collection and splash color all over the 1940s home. The designers channeled Singer’s boldness into a range of saturated blues and greens. “It’s very ‘me,’ ” Singer says of the lively result. See how Murray and McCarthy did it—and how you can too.
