get the look: great white venice

One of my favorite breakfast spots in LA is the relatively new, in Venice. It has a beautiful rustic beach shack vibe with white plaster built-ins, rattan lamps, wood seating, loads of plants and then the addition of modern art and gorgeous marble accents add some polish. Oh and the food!… just as tasty as the interiors (I love the harvest bowl). Now back to the design… see how you can get a bit of this Cali vibe into our house, below.

Mandy Moore’s Family Room Tour

I’m wrapping up the tours of our Moore Residence project today with the very last one in the family room. The space’s dreamy color palette is the sum of different hues that were woven throughout the house as if this one room ties the whole project together.

Just like the rest of the house, the family room was stripped down to its barest form in order to take it back to its mid-century roots, while simultaneously propelling it forward to the current century. The biggest project to tackle in this space was the fireplace wall which was part of the early 90’s renovation that was a disservice to the mid-century home. We removed the granite surround and curved lines from the fireplace and re-surfaced it using to make it more authentic to the time period.

From the beginning we knew we wanted to create a long floating bench/hearth that ran the entire length of the wall and , the architect, came up with the idea to make it a custom palladiana terrazzo bench, which is now easily the show piece of the room. She created a few mock-ups of the and from there we went marble tile shopping. Once we picked out our palette of marble tiles we went to work busting the pieces up and hand placed each of the aggregate pieces along the bench so we could get our ideal composition. It was so fun rolling up our sleeves and getting our hands a little dirty on the job site, even if I was about 8 months pregnant. From there the pros, came in and made all the magic happen.

was another important piece in the space, with its position floating in the most central space of the house, the back of the sofa needed to be visually considered just as much as the front. When I saw sofa and the detailing on the back cushions it was an easy sell. Not only are the leather straps and the wood accents stunning, but the sofa itself has a deep seat and soft upholstered arms and cushions which makes it perfect for curling up to watch TV. It really is that elusive winning combination of tailored and comfortable.

And finally, the coffee table… my coffee table! I have been working on developing my own line of furniture and “The Pentwater Round” which is seen here, as well as the “Pentwater Octagon” (which you may remember from the Christopher Kennedy Showhouse and my desert A-frame), are the very first pieces. did an incredible job bringing my design to life for this custom one for Mandy. With our move, and other changes in the studio, the table has yet to be released. If you’d like to inquire about a custom piece you can our studio through [email protected] .com or sign up for to be notified when it is available for purchase.

A view from the kitchen shows the flow between the two rooms.

Natural elements like stone, wood, leather and fur are accented with refined touches of brass and velvet to create a welcoming mix of masculine and feminine and a perfect example of the relaxed but edited aesthetic that I’m always looking to create.

Let’s take a quick trip back to see where we started…

Moore Residence Library Tour

I saved a couple of the best room tours in our Mandy Moore house project for last… one is the library nook that we carved out of an un-used hallway by creating the built-in sofa to cozy up in and shelves to house Taylor’s book collection.  As you will see in some of the before photos below, there was already some traditional wood bookshelves along one wall, but we scrapped those and re-worked the layout completely. I wanted to delineate the space more into its’ own room and by adding shelves in some areas and taking away shelves in others, we did exactly that. We also added swing sconces over the sofa and swapped out the peaked “mall skylight”, as architect Emily Farnham coined it, for a more streamlined option. The end result is a quiet moment in the house that makes a huge impact.

I still dream of that color velvet. We went back and forth on the fabric for this sofa for months. At first it was going to be a green cotton canvas and we must have looked at a couple dozen shades of green, however there was already a lot of green in the house. We then looked at some shades of blue and almost landed on a chambray but then there was taupe and a puddy/lavender and maybe a warm grey?… but every swatch we went back and forth on there was always one person that wasn’t 100% on board between Mandy, Taylor, Emily and myself. It wasn’t until I found the ochre colored velvet(or “whiskey” to be exact) that brought on a very quick unanimous hell yes! And now I couldn’t imagine it any other way.

Now let’s peek back at the before…

The Moore Residence Study Tour

We are in the home stretch of our Mandy Moore house tour. Sidenote: I forgot how long it takes to put these posts together, you know all the sizing photos, linking sources, and then actually writing about it. Time is something not on my side at the moment so thank you for being patient in what has turned into the longest reveal ever. haha

Today I am sharing the study, as we called it, and it serves as Taylor’s office/music room. Mandy wanted this space to be all Taylor so while he rolled with whatever Mandy, and I came up with in the rest of the house, he had just a couple boxes he wanted ticked in this space. One of which, that at the beginning, I was fairly worried about executing.

The first request was built-in book cases to house some of his collection and second was a desk (easily fulfilled requests), but the third was that he wanted a guitar wall. To be honest I got a little cringey as visions of huge clunky wooden guitar racks filled my brain, but I am never one to shy away from a challenge so I set out to turn the guitar wall into a feature to love and to my surprise it ended up being my absolute favorite part of the room.

I thought we were going to have to build something custom but when we came across I knew they were the answer to all my worries. When it came to mounting them I asked taylor to bring out all the guitars he wanted to hang. Similarly to how I hang a gallery wall, I then treated the guitars as art and composed the exact layout that I wanted on the floor. From there I eyeballed the placement one by one as we replicated the layout on the wall.

For the built-in cabinets and shelves, we initially thought to have them separate from the desk with a floating desk in the middle of the room. However in order to maximize enough space for a sofa and lounge area, we integrated the desk into the cabinetry and the result and I both agreed it was a much better flow and use of space.

And here is a quick look at what we started with.

High/Low: Guest Bedroom

My love for cane furniture is still going strong and there have been so many cane bed options popping up, I thought it would be a perfect jumping off point for another high/low room design. For the lower priced design we used two twin beds together to make one but this bed is also a great  And you won’t believe the nightstands I found on Amazon…
