Talking Points

Blank canvas: Mark wanted a relaxing retreat to house his art collection and host his friends.

Before our Homepolish redesign, this beautiful beach house had expansive ocean views and great open rooms but was completely empty. Wanting to fill it with distinctive and simple forms that complimented his carefully curated art collection, the client handed his keys to our LA Creative Director, Orlando Soria, and then flew back to his house in San Francisco. Looking for a balance between this young bachelor’s beach house needs, minimalist wants and love of hosting led Orlando to a few solid conclusions. A monochromatic color palette let the art be the star; concrete side tables and golden jute rugs reference the beach rocks and sand found just outside; and a bright and inviting sofa makes the living room feel welcoming and cozy. Handling everything from design to actual furniture sourcing, delivery and installation while the client was working up north, Orlando oversaw the entire project from start to finish in one month. One month! Even with the quick turnaround, this dream beach house is a perfect example of “less is more” luxury.

client testimonial

“This project was a great opportunity to use color very sparingly which allowed the places where it does come in to be important focal points.”
