A Bicoastal Affair
East Coast polish and West Coast casual live happily ever after in this storybook home in Pacific Palisades, California.
With a wide front porch, tons of wicker, and plenty of antiques, the house has as much classic style as an old Hamptons beach retreat. At the same time, batik prints, mercury glass accessories, and a mix of English and American antiques infuse the house with laid-back California cool and Old Hollywood glamour, too.
Nearly the entire front wall of the house is lined with windows and French doors, which lead to the primary living spaces—the living room, dining room, and kitchen. "The whole front of the house opens up to the garden, so those colors were a natural inspiration for the interiors," says Lee Ann.
