“There are certain parts of the home that I think embellishment feels cozy and inviting. Then there are other environments, for example, the living room, where I don’t have a ton of items on the table.” – Aerin Lauder
BEFORE | LIVING ROOM
Primary colors were no longer a primary desire in this home! After some updates and zhushing to their formal den, the desire to go neutral spilled over into this sunny room leading outside to their beautiful backyard oasis. Now that the kids aren’t little anymore, this family wanted their home to be a relaxed and zen filled environment, welcoming them and their guests to kick back and unwind.
Double the Chaises, double the fun! We bid adieu to the old blue sofa, and bienvenue the fresh new custom sectional in Belgian linen. How about those soothing walls? Pebble Beach by Benjamin Moore completely transformed the vibe of this room with a stroke of a brush. A hand woven rug made of silk remnants is as pretty as it is soft and adds a different texture.
Fresh Flowers are a must, and these purple thistles couldn’t be more perfect if they tried.
The base of this vintage coffee table went from off white to grey pulling out the beautiful veins from the marble. Our client fell in love with this vintage indigo printed runner while we were rummaging through my box of favorite things in my studio. One of a kind and totally unique, this textile was given new life when turned into plump pillows. I love that we saved the tassel trim and put it on two of the pillows for a playful touch.

An area that was once an afterthought is now a reading nook with this handsome vintage chair and ottoman reupholstered in navy velvet with apple green piping for a burst of contrast. A carved wood pedestal from another room becomes the perfect side table for a glass of ice tea on a beautiful Cali afternoon. Calm, cool and collected…OMMMMMMMM.
