The sleek master bedroom of this Malibu home features a wall of glass that offers a sweeping view of the Pacific Ocean. White walls and gray tile provide a neutral backdrop that allows the water view to steal the show. A gray sofa creates a modern and functional sitting area, while a surfboard adds character as wall art.
The second master suite also features private balcony access and plush, brown carpet. Dark wood furnishings and solid neutral bedding receive a pop of vibrant color in the pillows and art, adding a touch of femininity to the space.
This oceanside bedroom features sleek modern furnishings and fun pops of color, including burnt orange pendant lights and large-scale modern art. A wall of glass lets the room take maximum advantage of its Pacific Ocean view, while a sunny corner is home to a modern desk and chair.
Even though the master bedroom is on the small side, homeowners didn't want to forfeit functionality, so designers gained floor space where they could. They mounted floating nightstands to either side of the wall for extra storage underneath. They also created a floor-to-ceiling wall of closet space, adding storage without bringing extra, bulky furniture into the space. These additions kept the master bedroom space sleek and modern without sacrificing functionality and storage.
The girls’ room is an excellent example of how to design a kid’s room with a sense of style. When designing a room for kids there’s a lot to be said for keeping the overall aesthetic aligned with the rest of the home. Instead of decorating with bright pastel colors and more traditional "kid's colors" that don’t reflect their personal style, Julio and Kenza have blended their grownup black and white color palette with fun elements like the heart polka dots on the sheets, typographic art and pops of orange in this kid-friendly space.
