Balancing L.A. chic with New England charm

Posted on Thu, 7 Dec 2023 by KiM

Vintage and contemporary pieces mingle with fresh finishes in an elegant, relaxed, and eclectic abode designed for a young family of four in Los Angeles’s Mar Vista neighborhood. Interweaving subtle nods to the clients’ Vermont roots, the studio’s design direction for the project highlights the juxtaposition of raw, relaxed, and elegant materials, balancing L.A. chic with New England charm. Our renovation included a reinterpretation of paint and finishes throughout. Softly limewashed walls imbue subtle variations with a matte, velvety effect, laying the foundation of our redesign. We paired this with wide plank oak floors, cipollino tirreno marble countertops, a bespoke fireplace design, and a top-to-bottom kitchen overhaul. We curated a mix of French 1970s vintage, distinguished burlwood, woven wicker, cosy prints, humble plywood, plush mohair, and timeless walnut.  
A really fun and eclectic blend of styles designed by Stefani Stein. She really nailed the combination of contemporary and vintage and it comes together really cohesively. Why settle for just one style when you can mix it up and make it work? Photos: Sam Frost; Styling: Lisa Rowe.
