Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Sheeth Headquarters by Studio Prineas.

“A classic California Tudor remodelled for a young family of creatives and their many house guests. When the clients bought the house most of its character had been lost over the years. We worked hard to bring it back to a more authentic version of itself, choosing an aesthetic direction that tastefully represents their bohemian side while keeping it both timeless and relevant. The end result is a house that is warm, inviting and magical. A real embodiment of the client’s personality.”

A playful farmhouse for family life

Posted on Thu, 16 May 2024 by midcenturyjo

“This farmhouse was envisioned for a young couple embarking on family life, emphasizing playfulness, vibrant colors, and the versatility to host guests. Our design process was rooted in the joy of incorporating patterns and colors, resulting in truly vibrant spaces. We creatively had to maximize the potential of irregularly shaped rooms from the original house.  Strategically placing the seating in the corner of the library, we were able to transform a small room into a versatile space suitable for hosting gatherings around the fireplace, playing cards at the game table while being surrounded by bookshelves that also incorporated a full bar. In the absence of a formal living room, we integrated a cozy U-shaped dining bench at the end of the living room.  The two wider sides double as chaises, offering cozy nooks for reading.  In creating this farmhouse, we prioritized vibrant, adaptable spaces that resulted in a harmonious home that seamlessly combined practicality with warmth and style.”

Designer’s own

Becca Casey of Becca Interiors knew the 1950s Provencal-inspired home had potential on her first visit. Its single-level layout boasted tall original windows, flooding the space with natural light. Stripping down floors and walls to the studs Becca began the transformation infusing the rooms with English influences. Antique beams from Philadelphia and an Italianate marble fireplace adorn the living room, while a stone trough graces the powder room. A neutral palette and white oak floors throughout offer a warm welcome while what was once a guest room is now a charming nursery.

Katie Hodges Design undertook a complete renovation and furnishing of this 1940s Pacific Palisades home. The clients, a family of four, lived here for a decade before opting for renovation. The former mishmash of styles posed challenges in the floor plan. The home transformed into a harmonious blend of modern and traditional styles through meticulous reworking, expansion, and adjustments. Bespoke and vintage furnishings added the final touch, creating a cherished living space.
