california bohemian

Earlier this year, I did a post "What's your style", explaining that my specialty is casual luxury with a California twist.  I try to incorporate culture, history, playfulness, and nature in every space I design and I think that embodies California design as well.  So when Ally did this post, she inspired me to show you California design in its many incarnations with the same foundation that I abide by.  After last week's California modern and California Christmas, we are continuing with California bohemian (as a style - not as a geographic necessity.)

Natural elements paired with global textiles layered onto of each other to create an effortless and comfortable style.  Plenty of pattern and color with pieces that have history with the patina to show it.  This is California bohemian.

sometimes you need to spend

I once said that people have forgotten in the rush for "the look for less" that you lose the quality of design.  That the patina of quality antiques can not be had for pennies.  However, there are places that you can buy quality reproductions that are not mass-produced in a factory and available through a catalog to every person with a mailbox.  A place you can pay a little more (not much) to have the look of an antique, the lustre of wood twice it's age, that is crafted by hand.  Would you like that?


Beau Holland Studio makes quality reproductions that could trick even a trained eye.  His finishes are what set him apart from so many others, he can bring wood to life so that the material is the star.  His shapes are simple, but not plain with plenty of attention to detail.  See for yourself.

This is my favorite table, perfect size & height and available in so many finishes.

His lighting selection is really awesome.

Imagine this fixture with light and all the patterns it would throw.

a turned wood lamp will never go out of style or be out of place.  I would love to see this with a batik box pleat shade.

So shapely.

Where have you ever?  This image doesn't do these justice.  

So simple, but again it is the shape that puts it out of this world. 

More lighting (and that awesome elephant)


the detail

Love the curves

look at that wood grain and finish!

california modern

Earlier this year, I did a post "What's your style", explaining that my specialty is casual luxury with a California twist.  I try to incorporate culture, history, playfulness, and nature in every space I design and I think that embodies California design as well.  So when Ally did this post, she inspired me to show you California design in its many incarnations with the same foundation that I abide by.  We are starting with California modern (as a style - not as a geographic necessity.)  

Beautiful light-filled room with easy access outdoors, minimal furnishings with emphasis on clean lines without embellishments.  Natural colors that warm up the space, eliminating the coldness that modern interiors can often feel.  Quirky touches that ease the space away from anything too serious.  This is California Modern.

California Christmas

Ally has given me an idea for a blog series... more to come, but first up a California Christmas.  Admittedly, not all these are photos of California interiors, but they still evoke the feeling - the laid back beach living with color and culture.

Sacramento Bedroom IDESIGN


This is an IDESIGN project that I completed for a Sacramento couple who wanted a complete redo with items that would last.  We choose timeless pieces that were gender neutral (their old design had too much floral for the husband).  The ticking stripe on the chair provides interest without being too overwhelming and the rug adds the right amount of color that they can easily add more accessories without clashing.  The vintage Murano lamps are grown-up, but the canary yellow is fun and fresh. I am dreaming with the Cy Twombly painting, but the colors are right and its a good inspiration piece for the couple to find an abstract piece of their own.  Since the bed has thin posts, I added substantial bedside chests to add weight and purpose.  

Also, not shown, we are using a simple check quilt for the bed and white percale sheets with crap apple embroidery from Garnet Hill.  As a designer, I order mattresses for my projects and always recommend an Aireloom mattress if the clients don't have a preference.  They are not cheap, but consider how much time you spend in bed, it is money well-spent.  Ohh, I almost forgot this is the wall color:
Isn't it spectacular?  A sophisticated grey, that has the slightest hint of lavender to maintain interest.  Absolutely everything goes with it.  It reminds me of the light in the English countryside.
