We are coming down to the final weeks of our project, and we are just picking up a few things we’ll need for the laneway house decor. Like a sofa, a bed, a rug, a closet.
We are keeping things pretty simple upstairs, with mid-century modern and just one or two accent colours against the neutral background. The big pieces of furniture will be the same grey/brown as the floor. We like to keep it simple to keep it serene.
But not everyone feels like that. This family from LA likes to stir it up with a lot of colour and texture — and still manages to fit it into 500 square feet.
Here the Barcelona chair — usually covered in plain fabric or leather, gets a bright floral makeover. The stack of books reflects the books on the shelf over the window. The traditional rug pattern adds more movement to the design.
Here’s more colour and texture tucked into the main bedroom (can you believe a family of four fits into this small space?).
The bookshelf holds lots of different shapes for more interest.
And see how the stripes in the bedroom have different scales?
Altogether a lovely home. Get the whole look at Houzz.
