Interior designer Irene Lovett of Designstiles has a charming and comfortable aesthetic, and her portfolio is full of beautiful spaces that retain a sophisticated feel but are peppered with cozy, rustic details and luxurious accents. So when a young couple needed help transforming their home into a warm abode with California style, they knew just who to call. The clients, who both work in real estate and have a keen eye for design, wanted a cohesive home with interiors inspired by their love for Napa and Ojai, California.
To accomplish this, the couple worked with an architect to reconfigure their ’30s ranch-style abode and brought in Lovett to advise on the finish selections, space plans, and of course interior décor. “About 70% of the house was down to the studs, so it was pretty much an entire renovation,” Lovett tells us. By combining a soothing pastel color palette with rich metallic details and warm accents, the resulting renovated space is a fresh take on California design.
