An exclusive from the pages of next month’s House Beautiful! Woo hoo! Love when I get a sneak peek on home that is about to be published.
A Malibu Hills ranch style home newly fashioned by Los Angeles interior design team Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe of Nickey Kehoe.
Eclectic in Malibu is how I would describe the aesthetic.
In lieu of a traditional chandelier, the living room features a huge red metal mobile by artist Stephen Oakes, poufs covered in Suzani fabric, decorative pillows made of vintage kimono sashes, a “Pollock-esque”wool and silk rug and mid century modern inspired furniture.
In the breakfast nook, a narrow modern rustic table with benches with a bright green embroidered Mexican cloth acting as a table runner.
And perhaps my favorite – the “love” spray painted above the bed in the master bedroom…initially a place holder for just the right piece of art…but now has become a signature decorative statement.
|In the master bedroom, “love” is spray painted in blue over the bed and sets the tone for a varied mix of textures and styles. I love the hide rug too. (above)|
|A runner made of vintage saris leads up this hillside home’s front door – setting the tone for the “collected” style that is inside. (above)|
The House Beautiful article is actually about the use of color in this home. I chose pictures of the more neutral rooms…but if you read the entire article which is on newsstands next week, you’ll see an electric blue formal dining room, a bright green kitchen, a yellow and purple family room den and much more.
Thank you Sonia and House Beautiful for the first look!
P.S. Feeling the need to do a COCOCOZY giveaway next week…sharing the love during Valentine’s week. I’ll give away something in the COCOCOZY shop…but I don’t know what yet. Hmmm…thinking… Browse the shop and let me know if you have any suggestions????
