Recently, I had the pleasure of working on a home for a young, Southern California family with a love of clean lines and a white palette. They wanted a home with a modern coastal look that was polished, yet livable. It was a lot of fun realizing their vision, creating fresh, comfortable spaces for them to live in and entertain. I’m excited to share the family room of the Estillo project with you today.
When shopping for white furniture, we looked at Restoration Hardware. My client knew they wanted white seating but wanted to be able to clean it easily and have it wear well. Restoration has a huge selection of modern and transitional furniture pieces to choose from, but more importantly their perennial fabrics were a perfect option for the white furniture in the room.
Since all the walls were painted white (Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee), we picked a charcoal rug for high traffic and to ground the space. It’s nice when white is the main color in a space to create contrast and take some of the cleaning pressure off with a rug that doesn’t show wear.
With such a clean, minimal foundation, we decided to add vintage textiles to the sofas. I love adding the boldness of black against white for a more polished look. The unique patterns and colors of the hand-woven pillows pulled the space together,creating a more comfortable, casual vibe.
The accessories in the room were key. The large wood coffee table created a perfect space to add some style with unique objects and coffee table books. Some of my favorites were the brass vases and a marble tray that could work later for serving. Then, I added an organic element of live greenery. Plants always add so much to a space.
From the sideboard to the european oak flooring, the light wood neutrals in the space blend with the light pallette of the room and add to the modern, coastal style.
Thank you for checking out the Estillo project family room. To see more of this project stay tuned. I will be sharing the kitchen soon. To get a similar look for your own home see below. Have a wonderful day!
