Home Tour: A Santa Monica Traditional With a Modern Design

Designer Carla Lane’s clients—a young family that was moving into a traditional three-bedroom house in Santa Monica, California—knew they needed help to create the home they wanted. The design-inclined couple was looking to create a comfortable home for themselves and their two sons, but they also wanted to incorporate valuable vintage pieces that they had collected over the years. By starting with a bright, white background and using a subtle mix of materials and styles, Lane was able to craft a home that is sophisticated and modern, while still casual and kid-friendly.
