RELATED HISTORY: LIVING ROOM IDEAS 2015: TOP 5 MID CENTURY MODERN SOFA
Soon after finding a midcentury modern home in the Hollywood Hills above Sunset Plaza, a young bachelor set out to splash the loft-like space with color, humor and family mementos. He turned to interior design duo Caitlin & Caitlin for help, and it responded with a fresh palette and fun ideas that make for a bachelor pad that’s far from ordinary.
Armed with what the designers dubbed a “California palette” of peacock, peach and vermilion, Caitlin Murray and Caitlin McCarthy melded vintage and modern accents to create airy, open spaces that were both colorful and comfortable. “We wanted it to feel breezy and loungy like a hotel,” says McCarthy, who has since started her own design firm, Caitlin McCarthy Design.
This room is what McCarthy considers the heart of the home, with an upholstered, low-profile sofa for lounging that also allows guests to sit casually backward to chat with whoever is in the kitchen. Furniture pieces face each other, not just the TV and fireplace, to create a conversation pit, while an arched lamp throws a curve into all of the horizontal lines. The homeowner came with a collection of heirlooms, including vintage auto and airplane figurines from his late father. Mixed with fresh flowers and colorful books, they occupy a prominent spot on metal shelving in the living room.
McCarthy calls the dining room “geometric chaos.”
The aquatic-inspired room overlooks the pool outside and combines natural and calming elements, such as the seagrass wallcovering, with noisier, energetic patterns, like the one on the banquette.
The artwork, which at first glance looks like a photograph of a popular beach, is actually an enlarged print from the movie “Jaws,” giving a cheeky touch to an otherwise sophisticated space.
