How to Make Your Home Feel Light and Airy

Jul 2 2014 - 4:09am

Found: the home that epitomizes California living. At the base of the Hollywood Hills lies a light and airy apartment filled with a mix of contemporary and Asian-inspired pieces. After one look at the home's color-saturated upholstery, eclectic knickknacks, and perfectly placed succulents, it's clear that this has to be the home of a designer — a Homepolish designer [1], to be exact. A true mix of high and low, this pad has become the canvas for Orlando Soria's truly unique, West Coast style.

Sticking with a palette of brown, black, and gold helped to unify the bedroom's mix of Asian, midcentury, and modern pieces.

Nothing makes a bedroom like a unique headboard. This Japanese headboard doubles as art and is an alternative way to decorate over the bed [17].

For an organized bookcase [22] like Orlando's, try styling books by color and arranging them both vertically and horizontally. You can also add small touches like flowers and meaningful accents throughout.
