Playa Vista - Final Touches

I don't think I have really mentioned the Playa Vista project yet but I'm sure you have noticed some sneak peeks on my Instagram of how the rooms are coming together. Beautifully. The project is in the final week of installations now. I should probably tell you what its all about. I hope to professionally shoot it by the end of August and share the glamor shots then. The boards will give you a good idea of what to expect.

There are actually a few more spaces than what you see here but you can get the sense of the luxe bohemian style we went for. Neutral layered textures with indigo and black accents. Touches  of brass and global textiles. The house is a new construction in the development of Playa Vista. Its a very nice house, but its was lacking in personality so my clients undertook the stressful task of swapping out brand new builder grade fixtures, tiles, and flooring with their own choices. Installing special wallpaper in key areas. And LOTS of custom built solutions throughout (Murphy bed, entry bench, mantel, dining banquet, shelving, and furnishings) to make it unique and special. Dreaming up the custom work and then watching it come to life was satisfying beyond belief. 

This weekend I will be styling up the finished work once all the furniture is in. Here are examples of the kind of accent objects purchased to spread throughout the house and compliment the larger scheme.

Out of respect to my clients I will not be sharing all of the sourcing details. But if you want to get a similar feel instantly on the smallest of scales, I did quickly put together some placemat and napkin choices for my clients to tie into the new scheme of her home. I will gladly share these sources. Literally any combination of placemat with napkin set with napkin rings will look beautiful. I can't decide which combo is the best one. 

Placemats: tassles/pocket/linen

Napkins: feathers/quill/indigo/dashes and moons/shibori/stripe

Napkin Rings: wood/brass
