Trending on Remodelista: 5 Interior Design Ideas to Steal from California

May 18, 2018

This week the Remodelista editors traveled west in search of new interior design ideas. Here are five they found in California.

Moroccan Tiles

Above: In LA’s Studio City, architect Barbara Bestor and DISC Interiors’ David John Dick and Krista Shrock  renovated a 1940s ranch house for a family of four. “The bright master bathroom is punctuated with unlacquered brass (that weathers and changes over time) and blue Moroccan tile,” catching Alexa’s eye.

The bathroom floors are designed with Blue and White Eight Point Star Tile from Imports from Marrakesh; $12 each. Re-create the look of the room with this week’s Steal This Look post.

Midcentury Furniture

&#8\2\20;The LA architect credited with creating the lap pool in the early seventies, Cleo Baldon designed indoor-outdoor furniture that captured the southern California good life,&#8\2\2\1; writes Margot.

Vintage Turkish Carpets

It’s time to simplify the process of buying vintage rugs online, says Julie. Read more in Revival Rugs: An Online Vintage Carpet Disrupter.

One-Bowl Meals

The new “it” bowl? “Something low and wide; with high-enough sides to contain a lot of that rice,” writes Alexa. “A decade ago, this style of bowl was called a pasta or risotto bowl, but in 2018, they’re meant for grains, greens, and things like avocado açai topped with chia seeds and banana slices fanned out around the edge (if you don’t believe me, check Instagram).” See a roundup of her favorite hippie bowls in this week’s 10 Easy Pieces post.

Fire Pits

“When architect Richard Clements Jr. designed Timber Cove Lodge on the coast of Sonoma County, California, in 1963, he took inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright: His hotel would be a tall A-frame, whose height would optimize ocean views, and whose materials—dark wood, stone, and glass—would make the building look at home in its surroundings,” writes Meredith. See the remodeled lodge, including several fire pits in Sixties Ocean Lodge Redux.
