Home Story - Chic Bohemian

Winston Churchill and I have something in common.  I REALLY love color and his opinion is:

 "I cannot pretend to feel impartial about the colours. I rejoice with the brilliant ones, and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns." Winston Churchill 

So, anything with this much color really stops me turning pages, or scrolling down too quickly.  This home belonging to Katie Tases, a part-time actress and full time mom lives here with her husband and three children is "color well done".   
Katie hired friend and Designer, Pamela Shamshiri from Commune Design to decorate her home in the Hollywood Hills.  

 The windows in the Family area make you feel like you are living in a sunroom.  The light just flows in all day long.  The multi layered hand made area rugs in this room give a wonderful collected over time look, not just a decorated look.

There is beautiful outdoor entertaining space as well.  The outdoor view would have to be beautiful to draw you out side, also that sun shines most all the time in Hollywood!

What's not to love about color?  It will always brighten your day.
If you are nervous or unsure about color, start with a small project.  You can even buy poster board at the Benjamin Moore paint stores in 200 of their most popular colors.  Pick up a few of these boards at $5 each and tape a large selection on a wall or at back of bookcase and just imagine the area actually painted.

Happy Coloring!
