Bolinas Ranch: Living Room

Space Made By: Renee Zellweger. Curator. Photographer. Designer. Wickedly delightful.

The Design Goal: To transform this space from a recording studio into a whimsical family retreat.

Design Tip: Play and have fun!

Renee shared the fun, imagination-stirring idea behind this home's design concept: "We asked ourselves, 'what do you get when a boy from Tahoe meets an Italian girl and lives in Bolinas with their 3 kids?' ...Spaghetti Western! The house is quite traditional in it’s details, and we had access to wonderful vintage and Italian furniture pieces. As we started playing and layering in elements, this is what emerged."

Why this space works: The living room, simple yet potent in personality, comes to life through its high contrasting colors, that certainly make a statement in a more traditional frame. The shock of purple in the B&B Italia Le Bambole sofa by Mario Bellini dances with the rock'n'roll black art wall that creates a modern backdrop for the old-fashioned fireplace. The space injects bursts of energy and moments of personal character into the largely serene architecture and woodiness of the house, creating a perfect modern rustic hideaway in the coastal town.
