Pacific Palisades Project: Great Room & Kitchen

Starting with a blank slate and zero furniture is both exhilarating and challenging all at the very same time. Making a home feel home-y requires lots of stuff...stuff that looks like it has been gathered over time and not forced. But how do you do that in a matter of months?! Well, I don't think there is just one answer to that question, but I will say that it really helps to buy things from LOTS of different places. This room puts a $900 lamp and ottomans together and then mixes in custom, vintage, RH, PB, WE, Ballard, Etsy, Mecox Gardens and trade-only items (and the list goes on) all in one space.

I know I am completely and totally biased, but I really, really love how this great room/kitchen space turned out:
