Décor Inspiration: A Californian Home Decorated in Elegant Neutrals
Tuesday 24th January, 2017

This is one of those homes which, although newly built, exudes such a confident sense of rootedness and timelessness.
Modern architectural details like the sleek grey steel windows blend seamlessly into the white exterior and add an elegant edge to the more classically decorated interior.
The pale neutral palette used throughout the home feels utterly calm and grounded, and is flooded with natural light through the large windows, adding an ethereal quality.
Antiques sit effortlessly alongside carefully chosen pieces of new furniture, and the gentle formality adds European charm while still welcoming you in.
Surface texture is key to the success of this interior with wood, stone and linen predominating. Together they give a softness to the interior which accentuates its relaxed and welcoming feel. Metals appear sparingly, mostly in the lighting which adds another layer of modernity and just the right hint of glamour.
This is a home to delight the senses and to soothe the soul in a perfect marriage of the classic and the modern. Scroll through to see more inspirational images . . . —Louise
