A home in the Pacific Palisades...I think that would work for me. For those of you who are not from Los Angeles, the Pacific Palisades is an area on the west side of town beginning just west of Brentwood around Sunset Boulevard and ending up right at the beach at Pacific Coast Highway. Lots of beautiful homes...it is gorgeous there...quite posh and very family friendly (since I'm not married nor do I have kids (translation = single)... this area does not quite appeal to me...maybe it is because everyone there is up and out of their houses by 7:00a on the weekends with their kids doing stuff...too early for me on a Saturday. I am usually up at that time...but it typically takes me until 9:00-10:30am (uh 11a) to rev up and get out of the door on the weekends! If everyone in the Palisades got up and going at 10-11:30a on the weekends...I would move there...hopefully "Palisadians" are reading this and decide to change their ways so I can relocate to this gorgeous area...please stand by for an update...you may be standing by for a long time...but please stand by...anyhooooooooooooo....).
All this talk about the Pacific Palisades is because apparently this home is located there! Impeccably designed by Kristine Kamenstein owner of Jackson Paige Interiors, this home is an absolute delight. Fresh and modern but with traditional and classic bones. Love it.
An arched doorway in the foyer leads into the home's luxe living room. (above)
A Kyle Bunting sewn hide rug makes an impactful design statement in the foyer (above)
A photograph of a flock of birds is used as a wall mural in the dining room - a great substitute for classic wallpaper! (above)
As far as color goes, the den is a study in elegant restraint except for the fun pops of electric orange that energize the room. (above)
A little metal and glass trestle table style desk is perfectly placed against a wall in the family room.(above)
Love the red coral like chandelier above the breakfast nook table (above)
Wood floors and a red cast iron claw foot tub in the master bath...wonderful! (above)
If I could move into this house, I would adjust my weekend schedule a bit!
Love the yellow upholstered lucite bench in the living room and also love the polished metal pendant lights in the kitchen...if you even care what I like.
Actually, I'd love to hear your thoughts. What do you think dear readers...any thoughts?
Happy Thursday (going back to work this morning after a few productive days off)!
