With special attention to details, Vanessa gave this space a modern upgrade.

This Sherman Oaks home is a beautiful eclectic masterpiece of mismatched eras and patterns. How did Homepolish designer Vanessa achieve balance without feeling cluttered? She recommends sticking to what you already like and working from there. This client’s home already had a few key antique pieces that Vanessa incorporated into her final design: a custom window bench pulls colors from the oriental rug without being too matchy-matchy, while a Philippe Starck Louis Ghost Chair sits next to an antique upholstered armchair. Take a virtual tour of this inspiration board-worthy home and see what funky ideas you come up with.

We played with bright and dark colors to up the drama in three different rooms. White and gold wallpaper worked well with the dark velvet curtains.
