The front porch of this Craftsman bungalow faces south, so it receives direct sun during the warmest part of the day. By adding a pergola for shade and using a cool color plant palette, the space looks and feels cooler than it actually is. Diamond Frost, Blue My Mind, Laguna Sky Blue, Frosty Knight and Opal Innocence are the plants included in this friendly surrounding that simply says 'welcome'.
This week’s unique house comes from the oh-so-humble oceanfront community of Laguna Beach, CA. From its hillside perch, this 5-bed, 7-bath home takes in stunning views of the Pacific and far-off Catalina Island. But the real style stunners are inside, where the 7,000 square foot home takes decor cues from modern minimalism, Zen balance, and even Dutch midcentury design.
What inspired your Wearing series? “There are two points: The reference point and the real point. In many ways Wearing tried to blend the two together in that the arrangements could reference handwork, interior design, and decoration, while the real points of physical balance, weight, and the usable form activated the situation. An example of the process would be taking a counter top, or a surface found in the home, then ‘dressing’ it with objects.”
