17. Color Them Happy in Los AngelesWhen people come to Caroline and Jayden Lee’s home in Atwater Village, Los Angeles, for the first time, they often look around and exclaim, “This place is so you!” That’s music to the ears of Jess Taylor, who, along with husband Jonathan, designed the home for the couple. The Taylors, principals at Taylor + Taylor, are old friends of the Lees’, so they well knew their clients’ style and preferences long before the project was launched.Many interior designers have to encourage their clients to experiment with colors. Jess had no such issue with these clients. “Our challenge was to make sure it didn’t look like a rainbow threw up in the space,” she says. “In the end we settled for dark blue, dark pink, light pink and emerald green. Black and white anchors the space.”Tour the room
A bright navy sofa is the star in this living room of whites. If you are drawn to a bolder color for the sofa but are hesitant, consider navy, because if any color is a classic with staying power, it’s navy. And for this midcentury bungalow in Los Angeles, the lines of the sofa are an appropriate match. Why it works: The color palette of the entire room is drawn from the rug. Its white background is repeated on the walls, its blue perfectly matches the sofa color, and the remaining colors directed the pillow and accessory choices.
