Describe the featured project.
This project was done for a young couple with small children in the South Bay. Since the couple are currently working from home, they wanted their space transformed to feel more inviting and comfortable for their family. Their Playa Vista condo is located directly on the beach, giving us a lot of inspiration for the project. We incorporated the family-friendly aspect that they needed with a coastal, contemporary feel. We worked with the family to select furniture, art and accessories in order to make the space feel like “them.”
A big inspiration in the bedroom was the beautiful natural light and ocean view. With that being said, we wanted the bedroom to feel serene and comfortable for the couple. The subtle coastal touches, linen textures and warm colors allowed us to achieve this. The tribal wallpaper in the bedroom also brought great texture and a uniqueness to the space.
We were able to sprinkle coastal touches throughout the home with soft blues and natural elements. We achieved this in the bookshelves, coastal artwork and textiles. Due to the clean lines and balance we created, the contemporary look was not lost.

What iconic California-style item should be in every house?
We can’t pick just one! Great surf books, natural textures and unique coral pieces are great items to portray the iconic California style that we know and love.
