The owners of this home work in television and love to escape from thier busy careers to their chic retreat, LA-based Woodson and Rummerfield's House of Design created the vision for the space. "We wanted all those who enter their home to be so happily surprised by such a smart, tasteful and whimsical space that they'd stay awhile," says Ron Woodson.
Some strong perios elements were brought in to stay true to the 1970s era of the house. Owners Suzanne and Robert are fashion forward modern art collectors, who wre not afraid to experiment with pattern and colour. "We found our inspiration in the work of Karl Springer, Florence Broadhurst and the laste fashion designer Halston," says Ron. "Suzanne learns more towards stylistically traditional items and high style fashion, hence the regency nods."
Broadhurst's retro patterns gave Ron and partner Jaime Rummerfield, an ordering system to contribute to the concept. "The house had practically no right angle; it's a three-story walk-up type of architecture with a three-level spiral staircase. Having an open multi-purpose area work well for dining, cooking and entertaining."
During their research, the designers saw a shot in a 70s decorating book with Broadhurst's Circles and Squares used as wallpaper. "We knew right away that it would perfectly bring together our concept for the living area," says Ron. "The geometric pattern provide a sense of order to combat the lack of structure in the open floor plan, and it also nicely reflects the shape of the spiral staircase. Continuing the theme, we used circle and square-shaped furniture throughout."
An aray of colours balance the masculine and feminine throughout the home. The living room, kitchen and dining area are a whimsical combination of greens and blues with only pops of pink. The sofa is "nice and boxy" and upholstered in fabric by British fashion designer Paul Smith, with pinstripe suit pillows to match.
The Circles and Squares pattern in the living room is complemented with a large-scale patterned custome rug, which doesn't compete with it because of the change in scale. "The dynamin colour scheme of all levels of green steals the show," says Ron.
