5 Friday Favorites: California Inspiration

We took some much needed family time the last couple weeks to head to CA. It was such a special time for our family to rest and enjoy some time on the beach. A change of scenery always helps me to get inspired and motivated to create. We are back and ready to hit the ground running with some amazing design! This week's post is dedicated to design inspiration from the sunny California coast. This specific style will always hold a special place in my heart.

1. California-Casual Style. I think it is fitting having just been in Malibu that I mention this beautiful, relaxed style. It is no secret that I am a lover of neutral decor. The key to getting this style right is sumptuous layers of neutral texture upon texture. Notice the shiplap ceiling, rattan pendants, bright and airy aesthetic, wooden furniture and neutral textiles.

2. Arched hallways with repeating pendants! There's just something about arched hallways and the historical charm they provide. I love the idea of adding repeating pendants as an added feature. I am always amazed by how much good lighting adds to a space.
