Natural Décor

Thanks to perpetually warm weather, Californians enjoy the great outdoors all year round. With so much time spent outside, the design philosophy focuses on bringing in as much of that natural goodness as possible. From reclaimed wood tables to jute rugs, the materials often honor mother nature. Seagrass baskets, sisal rugs, woven rattan, and raw woods bring a sense of that nature-oriented mindset indoors. It can even be as simple as a nature-inspired color palette or soft organic shapes reminiscent of naturally occurring patterns and landscapes. Don’t forget natural potted plants as nothing can be as natural as nature itself, choose large-scale ones or even indoor trees, to complete the look.

Wow Patterns

West Coast homes are known for their laidback, casual energy and from that springs a creative, carefree approach to decorating. Incorporate a variety of designs, colors, and prints by way of throw pillows, bohemian textiles, floor poufs, and graphic art. Starting out with smaller items makes it feel less permanent, too, if you decide you’d like to opt for something more minimal or less bright. Mix them all up to achieve a cohesive yet eclectic look, of which we’ll talk in the next point.

Mix And Match

On the West Coast, there’s a deep and abiding appreciation for eclecticism. One design does not define the “West Coast look”, rather it’s a blend of modern and rustic, desert and coast, colorful and minimal. There are a number of influences that inform the West Coast aesthetic, which is why it’s perceived as a relaxed, chill style.
