Living in California can mean living in a wide variety of environments. From the many beach towns along the entire coast, to the dry desert, to historical towns influences by the Spanish, California has a wide range of climates, architectural styles, and cultural influences. We love that modern California home design can include a variety of eclectic touches that all translate to the common Californian theme: cool, casual, and comfortable. Here, we’re exploring some modern home design, with a Californian twist.
A California style house, with modern, eclectic flair, can include a few consistent design elements. Bold touches, like one-of-a-kind patterned rugs, and abstract art, add modern style. An abundance of greenery and natural materials create a bohemian vibe. A palette inspired by the home’s environment, whether it be the ocean or the desert, pulls influences from the local culture and style. Popped against bright white walls, these spaces feel bright, light, and airy.
Having an organized home is such a happy thought. Who doesn’t love walking in the front door, taking a deep breath, and thinking wow, my home is organized and I know where everything is. Funny right? For most of us this is certainly not the case. Day to day life gets in the way and organization tends to fall to the back burner. A personal organizer isn’t faced with an easy task when tackling their client’s homes. They create a personalized solution that works for each individual and family to help create an easier, not to mention more organized day to day life. Sometimes all you need is that second set of hands and eyes to help create the beautifully organized home you’ve been in visioning in your mind. These five tips are a foolproof way to get the kick start on the organization that your home deserves. Need more advice for your interior? Check out our post on how to decorate your small space!

Whether your style is minimalist, modern, masculine or feminine, flowers and fauna can brighten up your home, improve air quality, and put a little life into your living arrangement.
