Laying Low with Chelsea LaBelle

Laying low is a celebration of dogs and the ones that welcome them in. From beach side bungalows to architectural masterpieces, we are reminded that the simple presence of a dog can make a house a home.

In this home tour, we had the pleasure of speaking with LA creative Chelsea LaBelle. Outside of her day job as the Director of Communications for RAD Furniture, you can find her curating beautiful interiors on the instagram feed she runs called @inside___job (we’re huge fans).

Tell us a little about yourself – who you are, what you do and what you love?

I’m Chelsea — a Southern California native, new-ish to LA after a 9 year stint in Seattle. I moved here with my boyfriend Lucas in 2019, and a year later we adopted our dog Maisie. I’ve spent my career in the interior design industry primarily working with furniture and textile brands, which has given me the best education in – and such a passion for – the elements of a space that make it feel complete. Over time I started taking on interior design projects myself, and I’ve grown to love and respect design from a whole new perspective.

How would you describe your pup’s personality?

Maisie was rescued from a home with over 60 other dogs, and she clearly wasn’t the alpha over there. She initially came off super nervous, but so incredibly sweet, and we could tell she wanted to open up. We’ve seen her personality evolve so much over the last nine months as she’s adjusted.

As of now, Maisie has two speeds. She spends 90% of the day lounging, but in the face of food, treats, or her Lambchop toy, she is so jazzed she can’t keep her cool. Just so excited. Watching her become more comfortable and communicative and playful makes me so proud, I could cry just thinking about it.
