Malibu Home

I knew I was going to love this job the moment I walked in the door and was greeted by sweeping views of the Malibu coastline, a fabulous art collection and a menagerie of cats and dogs.  My clients had moved into their dream home 15 years ago and hadn't done much to the furniture since.  In addition their needs in the living room, in particular, had changed so the floor plan needed to be revisited.

The end result entailed a few new additions like a sectional, a loveseat, a coffee table, an occasional chair and some pillows.   But for the most part we worked with what was there.   We reupholstered all of the existing furniture in a mix of Henry Road fabric, African cloth and indoor/outdoor fabric; changed up the floor plan in the living room to create a TV viewing corner and a conversation area that took advantage of the glorious views; and moved artwork so that their spectacular collection was better showcased.

The images below wind their way through the entrance hall, the living room, the bar area and the master bedroom.   I love that the end result looks like a natural evolution of a home filled with objects collected over a lifetime.   New and old, ethnic and modern blend together naturally creating a relaxed, welcoming and personal space.
