My “job” was to get in, photograph the house, interview the designers and get out of the way of the next person in line. Lucky for me, I got to the Thompson’s end of the house at the perfect time. I had them all to myself. We had a chance to chat at length, and I found them absolutely delightful!
They are the owners of Cabana Home, and their Santa Barbara and Mill Valley locations were the go to source many of the Design Home’s designers pulled from for their spaces. It’s probably easiest for both of us if you just assume that the source for all the pretty is Cabana Home, unless noted otherwise.
Steve and Caroline were charged with designing a first floor guest bathroom, bedroom, and office. They faced a challenge that most homeowners are familiar with: Working around an existing design element that can’t be changed. They decided that the best way to approach the space was to use the very bold ain’t-going-anywhere pumpkin-colored bathroom tile that had been installed before they were brought in and tie it in with Mary McDonald’s blue Great Room, while lightening up the color palette.
I think they pulled it off with style.
I’m getting my fancy jammies. Night, night, y’all.
The Graham Headboard from Bernhardt is covered in Travers’ Sevilla Texture fabric in the soft shade,
Military. The bedding is from Matouk and the large paisley print Paradiso Beatrice accent pillow fabric is by Nina Campbell for Osborne and Little. The contemporary Tulip pillow fabric in front is from Galbraith and Paul.
All I needed was a good book and this corner would’ve been mine. The paint color for the room is Pale Powder from Farrow and Ball and the trim is Wimborne White.
The Armillary Sphere Chandelier is by SkLO Studio for VC, the winged desk chair is from Baker and the desk’s Terra Cotta Square Pedestals are from Englishman’s Fine Furnishings. The Farrow and Ball paint is the same Pale Powder color used in the guest bedroom.
