Cottage of the Month December 2014
Welcome to Jennifer's beautiful home in Westlake Village, CA...
Where do you get your decorating influence from the most?
Where is your home located, and how long have you lived there?
We live in Westlake Village, CA. We've lived here for 3 years.
Vintage French and Swedish. And always different shades of white and pale blues.
What is your favorite decorating style?
I love Nina Hartmann books, and I get inspiration from the displays of vendors I love at flea markets and antique stores.
In 5 words or less, your home is?
What is your favorite store or flea market to shop at?
I love the Remnants of the Past antique show, Willow in San Luis Obispo and Hoot 'n Anny in Westalke Village.
Share one of your favorite decorating tricks or ideas:
Buy only what you love. And take your time collecting things that you gravitate towards. Over the years, you'll develop collections that will mean a lot to you.
Your favorite paint color, name and brand:
Palladian blue by Benjamin Moore. And all of my white walls are White Coffee with Atrium white trim.
What are your favorite things to collect right now?
Vintage French transferware.
What is your favorite room in your house, and why?
Our bedroom. The color is soothing and I love the wallpaper. In the late afternoon it gets wonderful sunlight, and it always feels peaceful.
Your next project is:
Figuring out how and when I can get back to France for another buying trip. I absolutely love it there.
