This young couple with a toddler, two dogs, and Oli the cat live on the side of a hill with beautiful views from all windows. They wanted a comfortable, California-style, relaxed home. They tried a couple of things on their own, but it just wasn’t looking and feeling the way they would like. They wanted light and airy, but it looked and felt dark. Both they and I wanted to capitalize on their amazing views. We started with defining their palette and feel, and the song was set. Throughout their home, I took full advantage of the views. I lightened everything, added soft textures and colors, and improved functionality, keeping their toddler, dogs, and Oli in mind at all times. Furnishings and art were inspired by the scene out the window. I designed the driftwood mobile on their stairs as the epitome of light and airy – floating gently, beautifully cascading. Their home is relaxed, classic, and oh-so-comfortable.
