A refreshing change of pace, the Ashland Modern home in Santa Monica, California presents a curated blend of minimalist design, nature-inspired elements and a balance between warm, earthy hues and a neutral backdrop. Designed by Disc Interiors, the fabulous house was crafted to meet the specific demands of a couple where one was a landscape architect and the other a surfer. This is precisely the reason why a love for the outdoors becomes a central yet understated part of the narrative, as each room adds colors of nature in its own unique way.
With a simple white backdrop, the living room offers a perfect canvas to bring in essentially different materials and textures like the snazzy Moroccan rug (which is still pretty modern), a stone coffee table and the minimal modern fireplace. Décor from the likes of Design Within Reach dominates the setting, even as large glass walls open it up towards the garden outside. Large globe pendants with hexagonal panels in the kitchen and patterned drapes in the dining room further bring plenty of visual contrast, even as shades of blue inspired by the surf are carefully integrated throughout the living area.
The grasscloth-covered walls in the bedroom also seem to be inspired by colors in the garden, even as a beautiful rug with a vintage vibe gives the room a relaxing, stylish feel. It is easy to fall in love with this California home that paints a pleasant and inviting picture while cleverly integrating the hues and aura that its owners longed for. Picture perfect!
