I have made it tradition to tour the Pasadena Showcase House each year. The homes selected and the designer updates never seem to disappoint. This year one of my favorite rooms was designed by Robert Frank Design of San Marino, California. It was probably one of the smallest rooms in this 9,600 square foot home (plus a 2,600 carriage house) but it was one that was most memorable to me. I think one of the many reasons I connected with it was because of its serene ocean vibe and the coziness of the space.
“Inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s oceanside villa, we created a timeless design that is both beautiful and comfortable. Serving double duty as a home office and guest room, this space also offers a peaceful retreat.”
I think Robert Frank did an exquisite job of capturing the essence of a seaside retreat by incorporating a crisp white, navy, and citron. The floral fabric used for the draperies is known as “Alexander Indigo” and is available through Calico Corners. A good testament to the fact that many wonderful interior design resources are available to the general public!
