House Tour: Contemporary California Family Home

I am thrilled to bring you a lovely house tour today. Ashley Fletcher and her husband moved to LA from New York a year ago with their baby daughter Coco. Some rentals are so plain to begin with and completely lack character. This family-friendly 2 bedroom home in Hancock Park would be my dream rental. It boasts high ceilings, bold wall paper choices, and contemporary paint colors while still maintaining quite a bit of traditional charm. 

Ashley, has impeccable taste which she attributes to being a Pinterest addict (aren't we all?) and drawing inspiration from bloggers and Instagram. However it's clear she has her own style and I'm obsessed. Ashley went to Parsons School of Design and graduated with a degree in fashion design which has been her focus for the last ten years. However she recently changed directions and went pack to school at FIT for interiors and its obvious she is very talented and I cant wait to see more from her! I love style that doesn't shy away from color and Ashley's home manages to offer a nice balance.  And for only having lived there a year, it looks so well-styled and "done". 

Ashley decided to try to keep her living room a more neutral palette. I am coveting those Moroccan wedding blanket pillows, the lush fiddle leaf fig tree (why can't mine lo like that?), and her excellent taste in  decorative objects.

Hands down Coco's Nursery is my favorite room of the house. Ashley is so successful at putting gallery walls together and I'm loving the block printed pillows.

Currently Coveting: Nude Blazer

Sadly summer is winding down (insert crocodile tears here). I get so depressed when I go shopping this time of year and all the new fall clothes are black, dark gray & burgundy. So dark. One trend I am loving for Fall is the beige blazer. A staple piece that can carry you through every season minus the winter-y months. I just like to deny that winter is coming as long as possible so summer whites mixed with a light blazer seems like a perfect transition.

Get the look for fall - I rounded up 5 cute options all for $100 or less:

Jack's Room - Sneak Peek

Ahhh - it has been over a month since I have posted. And not because nothing is happening around the house. Too much is happening. Everything seems like it is destruction construction mode and nothing is finished. The kitchen still needs counter tops and hardware (not that I don't love our temporary plywood counters), my closet still needs to be converted to a steam shower, the kids bathroom needs trim and paint...the list is endless. However, yesterday we finished painting my son's room and it was oh so nice to have him out of our bed and have at least one room near completion. I told my husband since so much of Jack's current decor is navy and he only has one window that a light color would be good - maybe in the white or light gray family. He came back with a saturated blue. (I get vetoed in this manner often). But I absolutely LOVE the color. I am not sure about the navy drapes and navy dresser...but I think it looks great with white and his bed-frame. I am under strict instructions not to come home with different drapes or dresser. So we are making it work!! I started styling today and here are some in progress pics:

..more to come!!
