Having come from the hectic and woeful Monday of this week to the weekend, I noticed hundreds of things were missing, and surprisingly, I was aware of them. So yesterday, I penned them down in my not-so-minimalist but empty study area to figure out what I wanted for the next week or coming days. Making out the enormous long-lasting list, I saw everything just pointed in a single direction. It felt like the universe demanded that particular for me. Believe me or not, it is necessary to embrace the ongoing life. Not yet; I know you can't guess it, so let me tell you, it is a great vacation. Did I exaggerate? C'mon, you already know about me that for the fun-loving articles, my half of the intro is just about a healthy or stupid interaction between us. So we were talking about a vacation to get out of our spaces and have a deep dive into the seas or introspect while looking out the leaves turn red. However, there are always few homes that don't fall behind to serve the purpose of an epic vacation. Not to mention but their architects and the whole team behind the construction are fantabulously-awesome. Today, in this article, I will let you sneak into a family home amid Santa Monica and the Pacific Palisades of Los Angeles, California. Wait, before we finally proceed to learn the exteriors and interiors of the structure, I have something new for you. Obviously, these homes are a perfect fit for inspiration, but this time, we are learning from them. To put it differently, I am studying them to give you the best home decor tips to keep them inside. Together we have a virtual tour with a few worthy tips to cheat the look for our residences. So let us begin our tour of this modern California house by Walker Workshop.


Mellows From The Chirping Birds Of Nature.


The foremost thing which I think is crucial to judge any space is the management of the outdoor designs and the kind of plantation to emphasize the structure's beauty. So here we are to first lay our feet towards the entrance of the mesmeric beauty. The simple and warm material palette fuses of this modern California house entirely with the greenery of the surroundings. From the front end, you will see a large rectangular complex with symmetry, more delighted with the welcoming mirrors on the black accent boundary. Numerous trees with few cactuses and pinkish accent bushes complete the exteriors. While you wave your dress around, there is an interesting point to note all of the accent plants are nearby to the Windows. It may be because it radiates a better scenic beauty from the interiors.



Tip: Even if you have a small flat or a large courtyard, full of blossoming plants, try to use a few cactuses outside the Windows, creating a better spot in terms of visuals. Additionally, try to put a ceramic pot near your Window boundaries from outside and place daisies or unusual colour flowers. It will complete your exteriors without messing with your interiors.



Dance Through The Walkaway Of The Living Room.


As we enter the living area, a warm hue colour contrast welcomes us through its vibrancy. Now, sitting on the minimalist lower-sitting ottoman would encourage you to see through the window and enjoy the serene landscape where palm leaves take the courage to flow in the direction of air. The extra comfy rug adds softness in texture and a warm ambience to the entire living space of Rustic Canyon House. I particularly love the chair sitting with an L-shape bending to the right side, having a luxurious leather touch blended with uncompromising wood. Furthermore, the white fireplace and ceramic pots add divergence to the space in terms of colours and contrasts, maintaining the balanced theme. The designers have done an excellent job in the proliferation of divergent colour themes for the whitish accent living area. The clever choice of a copper u-turn desk is also playing its role to fill the space with tints of maximalism.



Tip: If you have a whitewashed living room, then try including divergent colours through texture. It may be enlightening to place a white rug and ceramic pots in your space. The best way to make a delightful appeal is by trying a soft home light lamp at the corners.


Points To Tasty Aroma Inside The Modern California House.


Kitchens are vital to any space because they are where good food and good mood originate. Whether you cook in leisure or necessarily, a clutter-free kitchen makes a perfect invention for a dish. Here at this modern California house, the decluttered cabinets with an inbuilt oven take the lead. While cooking, it is best to see something good or hear a rhythm, as the lone way to make your dish delicious is your take on your mood. When I was a child, my grandma always taught me not to let anyone cook if they were having a bad day. Instead, let them eat what has been prepared with love and nourishment. Here in the bliss of nature's kiss, nothing can go substandard. The extra white dining platform with a standard wood minimalist chair is the perfect way to have endless conversations with your partners while they cook.


Additionally, they encouraged the addition of colours in the minimalist kitchen through wooden grinders and baskets.



Tip: It would be fantastic if your kitchen platform works in both ways - dining and cooking, for short teak breaks or gossip. If possible, neutralize the kitchen's walls.



Talk More Without Any Huddles.


With the new expansion, the living room includes the kitchen and dining area as well. It's time for the separate dining room, which is just opposite the living room window. A raw textured dining table and chair with a bare white canvas painting include here. On it, abstract-shaped pendant light and narrow cylindrical vases with dried wheat stalks encourage the nudity of the space. I think adding these minimalist elements to the dining area stimulates us to speak and talk with our loved ones, as the rawness motivates us to think deeply and communicate effectively.



Tip: Nearest to your dining area, try to include at least one naked or raw item, which effectively stirs up better communication. It can be either conventional pots, dried barns or wheat, or even an empty canvas.


Sleep Better In Cushioned Bed.


Check on the hotness jibe through the spicy wooden furnished bedroom. Though thi modern California house has four bedrooms, I am here to cover one among them to give a better glimpse. Walk on the perfectly finished wooden floorings, enjoying the breeze of nature. Even lying on the bed, you can stargaze or say hi to the glowing sun. The minimalist cabinets, an ottoman and wall lights add a vernacular touch to the bedroom. I really admire the choice of creating a hollow effect of the stargazing window on the ceiling, as it improved the volume of the bedroom.

Tip: Try to replace your natural light entrance wall with a full-size mirror door for fresh air and better volume. Also, instead of using utterly-nonsense lamps and lights, try to include sober wall lights.


Final Words.


After long-long working days, we all certainly need a treat, and the best way is to put a vacation on your to-do list. But should I tell you the best way to cope with every work stress and everyday habitual routine on a daily basis? Try reconverting your space with something new. It helps! And meanwhile, let me know what is your favourite thing about today's modern California house.
