With so much recent talk about minimalism vs. maximalism in the design community, I couldn’t be more excited to share today?s home tour with you. This Los Angeles, CA family home offers the best of both worlds ? the sleek aesthetic of minimal design, with the warmth and coziness more often associated with maximalist tendencies.
The woman behind this warm minimalism is Hannah Phillips-Kaplan, founder of Repeat+World, an online destination for home accessories and E-decor design services. Decorating the home she shares with her husband Ari, entrepreneur and CFO of a digital media company, their son Liam and the family?s beloved dog Humphrey has first and foremost been a lesson in trusting her instincts and personal eye for design. Over time, Hannah has learned that she doesn?t need to fill every corner or wall with things ? sometimes leaving space lets you focus on the finer details and unique design choices.
Hannah and her family have lived in their 3,900-square-foot house for two and a half years, but finding the home of their dreams wasn?t exactly straight-forward. Hannah and Ari were renovating another home while renting when they decided to sell their project. At the same time, their landlord chose to sell the home they lived in, leaving the couple with two months to find a new place. They saw their current home and loved it, but as it was in escrow they continued their search. A month later, when Hannah and Ari were down to the wire, the house miraculously came back on the market. Needless to say, it felt meant to be. Despite being a new-build, Hannah and Ari?s home feels like it could have been around for a century. With classic wall paneling, decorative molding and stunning built-in cabinetry, the home embraces traditional charm. It?s the contrast between the classic backdrop and the carefully selected modern pieces that creates the distinctive, harmoniously curated feel. By keeping to a neutral palette, each space in the family?s home feels like a calming retreat that perfectly flows into the next. ?I believe a well-curated life begins at home, which means lots of food and wine and a warm, cozy atmosphere,? Hannah shares. Although she feels that decorating her family?s house is a never-ending process, turning it into a home has been more about creating memories than design moments. She adds, ?although we all lead busy lives, we make time to connect every day, whether it’s piling in bed together to read books, or watch movies ? family comes first.? ?Sofia
