This latest undertaking by a Remodelista favourite, LA-based Reath Design, has that coveted rigidity in spades. It’s a modest cell house, however sited in an unique Malibu Seashore neighborhood. It feels youthful but worldly. It juxtaposes somber, autumnal colours with extra spring-like lavenders and greens. It locations classic rattan stools subsequent to a luxurious, color-blocked velvet sectional.
And all of it by some means works. “I’m the happiest woman on the planet once I’m right here,” says Sofie Howard, a photograph producer who has labored for high-profile shoppers like Nike and Beats by Dre. Longtime good friend and Reath founder Frances Merrill had already labored her magic on Sofie’s prior two properties (one in all which was a smaller cell house in the identical sought-after trailer park neighborhood of Paradise Cove), so Sofie knew she might belief her to redo her seaside shack—however make it vogue.
The entire undertaking was seamless—”When the belief is already constructed up, it actually flies,” says Frances—however getting that easy look takes effort. The important thing? “Take a look at, take a look at, take a look at, take a look at once more. After which make a leap.”
