Breezy California Living Room

Sometimes I walk into pretty stuffy homes--the air is thick with all the large furniture and chachkeys everywhere. This is one of those times where less is more. We're letting some breeze into this formerly cluttered Hollywood Hills living room! Can't you just feel the air already?

The room has a few key pieces that are light, taking very little visual space. That Gus Modern sofa takes so little space that it doesn't even have proper arms! The grasshopper floor lamp and Sonneman deconstructed sputnik-esqe light fixture illuminate the space but will be easy to dust. Add some semi-sheer white drapes, and the room is well lit. And this wouldn't be truly Californian without cutting a few bougainvillea branches from the outside and bringing them in, along with a palm tree!
