This LA home just strikes with lots of colors, shades and patterns, it’s super bold and eye-catchy! Designer Frances Merrill got a task to transform a turn-of-the-20th-century, Craftsman-style house into a home fit for a young family of five. To counter some of the house’s darker corners, Merrill opened up its low-lying and slanted ceilings by using a glowing palette of rich pigments—a violet-toned entryway, a peachy pink powder room, and a sea-glass-blue living room—to lighten and brighten the dimmer places. Now, with the exception of the light-flooded sunroom and kitchen, every room in the house has its own illuminating shade. Pale-plum grass cloth adds a textural element to the entryway. The formal dining room was converted into a proper playroom for the kids, complete with a child-sized set of table and chairs. Powder-coated orange and leather kitchen stools provide prim pops of pigment in an all-white kitchen. A slick of vibrant green paint on the dining room chairs echoes the lush garden just beyond the kitchen’s floor-to-ceiling windows. one of my favorite things in this home is a gorgeous sofa in the living room with its stunning wicker base and contrasting emerald upholstery.
One of the most exciting things in this home is the use of floral and flora-to-fauna prints, the designed dared to choose such wallpapers for two rooms and they turned out to be stunning. Another cool thing is pairing unexpected textiles, for example, the headboard in the master bedroom and the pillows – different colors, different patterns but still amazing together!
