Expansive & Airy Living Room with Matching French-Style Sofas | Barclay Butura

Subdued formality drove the design process for this Southern California home for clients who loved being near the water but without the “display of shells and pieces of driftwood” according to designer Barclay Butera. This home was designed for year-round living with a casual elegance that befits its French styled decor in honor of the homeowners style.

Reflecting individual personality in the way interior spaces are designed is a solid decorating trend and when applied in a livable lifestyle is a beauty to behold. The combination of color, scale of furnishings, symmetry and accent pieces eases the formality of this classically designed interior which speaks to using and enjoying the things we love in our everyday living.
