Today’s home tour caught me mid-Pinning. Yes, it’s a black, white and wood color palette (my fave), yes, it features a timeless mix of antiques. There’s an air of California casual-comfort combined with an old-world sensibility. While it combines elements I’ve long loved, it does so fully fleshed out, comprehensive way that elevates it to the next level. This home has a cool grown-up feel and I’m all in.

This particular home belongs to Who What Wear co-founder & CEO, Katherine Power. (I’ve had a style-crush for a while now). While it resides in Los Angeles, for a moment you might think you’ve dropped into the English countryside or perhaps the south of France. But a few classically American details give it away. The oversized linen sofa. A bright white subway tile in the kitchen. A pair of timeless vintage club chairs. I can immediately see this home in a classic Nora Ephron movie (do you have a favorite location – I think mine is Diane Keaton’s house in Something’s Gotta Give). But I’d really like to get my house to this level of done. 2019 goal set.

  1. I don’t know why, but I am in LOVE with that kitchen. Not a huuuuge fan of the chairs by the kitchen island. Then again, I’m EXTREMELY picky. It took me nearly a month before my partner and I decided to pull the trigger on these amazing chairs for
    our kitchen ( LOL

  2. does anyone know what color the white paint is???

  3. The epitome of restrained classic refinement . A Masterpiece.

  4. I love it, but Something’s Gotta Give is a Nancy Meyers movie–not Nora Ephron. 🙂

  5. Always the same iconic colors.: brown, black_grey and white. Old_fashioned dull pallette. Not even a hot colored object to heat up the atmosphere! It makes me wonder whether a sense of colors is not considered in Interior Design schools…

  6. Just awesome, so relaxing, love the color. Love it all
