Yes, I really did give my home a fabulous refresh during the pandemic quarantine...then immediately bought a house! Although we will be moving soon, I wanted to give you a peak at my rental refresh.
We decorated our rental townhome four years ago, and it was featured in California Home + Design magazine. (Harley and I made the cover!)
As lovely as it was, after four years, and during the initial pandemic quarantine, I felt it was time for a refresh.
I think maybe I was in a "darker" place when we moved into this townhome. We had just sold (what I thought was) our dream house. Even though the price was right, looking back I realize that leaving that golf course made me a bit sad. Even though the previous look was chic and crisp, it lacked the colors and exuberance that I love...and am generally known for.
Enjoy this look at our primary bedroom.
ONE WALL GOES A LONG WAY
I loved -- and still love -- the green grasscloth that originally covered all four walls of our bedroom. After four years, however, I was ready for a change. I didn't want to invest in redoing all the walls, so I found an incredible pattern from Elitis that complements the other three walls beautifully, while adding some graphic "punch" to the headboard. It also brightens up the room, which was my main goal.
The Elitis paper comes in multiple colorways, but of course the blue and green is my favorite!
All about the details
The Bari Nightstand in high gloss black lacquer features clean, modern lines adding a sophisticated look and edge to any room. This nightstand is constructed using top commercial grade materials. With a gorgeous glass frame and a single drawer that gives the illusion of floating, this nightstand is of exceptional quality and is made to last.
We love this rug; the deep ocean blues mixed with neutral sand colors is a perfect balance.
Made in Italy, the Raffaello 300 thread count sateen encases a layer of warm polyester and is overstitched with a contemporary and timeless square design. These coverlets work well in both transitional and contemporary deigns and are available in a myriad of colors. This Ivory color is a timeless classic and our favorite.
You know I love mixing "high" and "low" -- so I combined the Signoria bedding with a quilt from West Elm. You guys, this quilt has practically become my security blanket during this crazy year! It is so soft and the perfect weight. I use it every night while I read or watch TV. I keep it folded at the foot of my bed exactly as shown in the photo above.
The Custom Lumbar Pillow
Available in 3 gorgeous colors, this fabric adds the perfect amount of glam to this room. The satiny sheen and eye-catching large scale pattern gives a beautiful focal point on a sea of texture. My go-to design is to place one large lumbar pillow in front of the two shams.
Fabric is by Kravet and is available through my shop. Call to inquire.
To get a similar look, shop my collection with Wendover. These pieces from my latest collection would give you the same look and feel.
Neutral Flux 1 & Neutral Flux 2
Can you believe this modern chaise was orginally designed back in 1928? It became famous (again) in 1965 when Cassina reissued it. Today, the LC4 remains the definitive chaise lounge, with an ergonomic shape designed for relaxation.
The chair was created when the three designers (Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Charlotte Perriand) teamed together to put man at the centre of their design, taking the idea that form and function should be at the service of relaxation, creating a perfect balance between its geometric purity and its ergonomic intent. The stability of the frame – for any angle of inclination is guaranteed by the friction through rubber tubes that cover the cross bar of the base.
Our friends over at West Coast Modern make a beautiful reproduction of this classic dresser.
I hope you enjoyed this tour!
