          1. Bright and BeachyDesigner: Lauren Christine HennoLocation: Santa Barbara, California Size: 200 square feet (19 square meters)Budget: $20,000Homeowners’ request: “The homeowners are from Arizona and wanted a beach house to vacation in with their three young girls. A place where they could come and relax with a California coastal vibe.”Plan of attack: “When I first walked into the space, it was extremely dark and felt enclosed. My main objective was to lighten it up and create an airy appeal. I began with my color palette, choosing fabrics and tones that enhanced a breezy coastal aesthetic, with a pop of modern glam. I then chose a beautiful white paint that had a hint of gray for the walls, which were a dark khaki, and a more vibrant white paint for the baseboards and cabinets, which were a dark wood.”Why it works: “Our color palette choice really helped the space come together. It opened the room up completely and made it more inviting. The ceilings are low, and there isn’t much natural light that brightens the space. The airy fabrics and paint choice provide an illusion that the room is larger and brighter than it truly is.”What wasn’t working: “Being that the homeowners have three young girls, they wanted to ensure the space would be functional for the family. In order to lighten it up, we had to use a white linen that was durable and washable. We designed a fitted slipcover that can easily be removed and washed if spills are made.”
