A couple's first home can be seen as a clean slate, a fresh start, so what better way to show that than white-out, modern interiors designed by Homepolish's Lada Webster?

At Homepolish, we see our fair share of milestone moments in people’s lives. The first born child to happy families, ushering in an office overhaul into a nursery. Empty nesters, converting a child’s bedroom into a new den. But one of our favorites has to be redesigning a home for a new couple. Cynthia and Joseph Chang fell right into that group, having recently purchased their first home together, a 2,100 square-foot property in Orange County.
Having been built in 1999, the home screamed 90s. In other words, take a note from the set designers of Full House or The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Walking through the home with Homepolish’s Lada Webster, their main request was to return the space to a blank slate. The couple wanted to rid the space of its old mojo to make space for their own streamlined aesthetic.
First on the docket for Lada was completely “whiting out” the space to achieve a clean, gallery-like feel. Everything from the stair railing to the fireplace and the oak kitchen cabinets were painted over with a layer of white paint. Furnishings and lighting all take on a modern look with earth tones and some textiles warming up the space. Little is in the way in terms of accessories. After all, the couple says that their greatest accessories are their friends who come for visits.
