“California is always in my mind.” – David Hockney
This client enlisted the help of JLD to advise and enhance a design scheme steeped in west coast ideals. The family had fallen in love with a 1950s redo and had already begun a significant remodel to reimagine the house to reflect their California cool sensibilities. More specifically, they wanted the house to feel like the summers they spent in Malibu: clean architectural lines, open rooms, soft colors, comfortable furniture, and floor-to-ceiling windows that overlooked a pool. Thanks to the client’s strong eye and inherent good taste, many furnishings had been chosen by the time JLD came on scene. However, the firm’s main contribution included finalizing paint colors throughout and providing essential ways to complete the desired effect through the selection and installation of rugs, shades, art and wallpaper.
