This Bright and Cheerful Family Home Will Have You Grinning From Ear to Ear

Designing a home that will reflect the whole family's style as well as the surrounding environment while also looking cohesive and well-curated is a tall order. But when Lindsey Borchard of Lindsey Brooke Design was enlisted to design a sprawling four-bedroom, five-bathroom ranch-style home, she was up for the challenge. Her task was to fill all the main liveable spaces, which included a "huge double entry, the living room, dining room, breakfast nook area, den, and office," she tells MyDomaine.

The home sits behind a quaint gated community in Westlake Village in Los Angeles and features gorgeous dark espresso cabinetry and hardwood floors and looks out over the expansive Santa Monica Mountains. After working with her clients to come up with a plan to fill such a large space, Borchard zeroed in on a goal: make sure the house had personality and flow within each space. Borchard describes the homeowners as a "young family who loves color and isn't afraid to take risks with design," so in the design she wanted to "make sure to everything was cohesive and had a reason for being there." And we'd say Borchard achieved that and then some. Read on to see how she transformed the space and take a virtual tour of this colorful family home.
