Florals are still trending this season. So, bring them into your home for a fresh feel. Here are my top picks from Zara – Home.

Rochelle Gores Fredston’s Beverly Hills Home

Philanthropist and board member of the fashion label J. Mendel Rochelle Gores Fredston takes Harper’s Bazaar on a tour of her newly renovated Beverly Hills home. Decorated by Joan Behnke, the space mixes a variety of materials and textures with a sophisticated palette of neutrals for a look that is effortlessly elegant.

Throughout the home, travertine clad walls add a touch of rough luxe to the space. Here metal and glass light fixtures add contrast and create a look that is breathtakingly unique.

In the living room, a palette of grey, navy and cream creates a calming feel. Pops of yellow enliven the space while patterned curtains and a bookcase adds visual interest. Dark stained tiles bring presence to the fireplace.

Travertine soars above a grand dining table that was designed by Behnke. Indoor plants inject the space with a refreshing feel while hints of gold adds a touch of modern glamour to the space.

Curated artwork hangs in an especially designed alcove in a second living room bringing personality to the scheme. Pops of red lend warmth to the space.

In the kitchen, a cool marbled backsplash and island contrasts with dark wood cabinetry. The contemporary design allows the materials to take centerstage within the space.

At the end of this passageway, a geometric inspired console table anchors the space. Dashes of zingy colours adds a dramatic touch and draws your eye to the artwork.

In the patio, again we see a play with materials. Sleek wood furniture in contemporary lines infuses the space with a cosy and welcoming feel. Travertine tiles make an appearance here as well, blending the exterior and interior for a balanced seamless look.

Mexican Villa

This villa in Mexico combines traditional design with a variety of materials and textures for a look that is charming and packed with character.

In the patio, rattan seating gives a relaxed vibe that echoes the nearby beach. Shutters are painted in marigold lending warmth to the space.

In the al fresco dining area, a contemporary dining set in clean lines lends contrast to the worn pillars while lending the space an intimate feel.

The bathroom mimics the colours of the beach with watery blue tiles and shell inspired mirrors. A wooden vanity anchors the scheme.

In the bedroom, a four poster bed creates a focal point within the space and neatly enframes an antique door which acts as a headboard. The vertical lines also draw your eye upwards taking in the architectural elements of the space. At the foot of the bed a vintage blanket chest infuses the space with personality.

In this nook, a vintage table and chair overlook the garden. By keeping the scheme neutral, the outdoors take centerstage yet design aesthetics are not compromised.
