Calabasas Remodel: Casita Lounge Reveal

We're back with the Casita portion of our Calabasas Remodel! Last week we revealed the first part with a webisode and photo tour. Don't miss the webisode! Get caught up with the rest of the Casita Spaces by checking out the Guest Suite, and the Outdoor Spaces.

Our clients wanted this part of the casita to be more of a lounge area, where family and guests could just hang out. They also needed a small work space that could double as a game table, so we set out to accommodate both of these functions.

To fit both zones, we went with streamlined furniture that wasn’t too bulky or space consuming.  A custom sofa was made to perfectly accommodate the size of the rug. The floors were previously existing, and we tied them in with a darker wood in the Pippin Coffee Table.

Surf inspired photography and a woven seagrass sideboard reflect the California vibe in a modern way. We have this piece in our Costa Mesa store and love it! We kept the styling minimal here, so the focus is still on the photography. The branches in the vase balance out the lower height of the rest of the items. The sideboard acts as storage right now, but can also host a TV if our clients decide to add one!

 

The large scale artwork above the couch really draws the eye in and sets a tone for the color palette in the space. We love the deep oceanic blue! The cool form of this lamp pairs beautifully with the modern setup.

We were able to create this work area by using a 36” inch table that could easily be tucked into a corner nicely without taking too much room. We incorporated more black into the space with the Ruthie Chairs.

The open bookshelf has a great natural wood tone and is built with black iron joints that add an industrial edge. Perfect for display and storage, it brings each area in the space together because it holds items used for both.

When styling a long open shelf like this one we like to create groups in clusters. It makes styling easier, and it's easier to take in!
