Before and After: A Family’s Serene Bohemian Space

Designer Kate Strickland Driver, founder of firm West Haddon Hall, was given a tall order when asked to transform the living room of a 1929 Spanish-style home in Los Angeles. The existing space was a combination of mismatched furniture, outdated lighting, and purely utilitarian pieces, all arranged in a floor plan that didn’t make the most of the charming, character-filled space. Driver’s clients, one of them a fashion lawyer for a global brand, needed a chic yet family-friendly home for their two children under five, so Driver got to work transforming their living room into a bright, cheery place ideal for relaxing and entertaining. With bold pops of color, intriguing light fixtures, and a thoughtful mix of textures and styles, the resulting design is comfortable and stylish, with an underlying relaxed bohemian vibe.
