Discover this designer’s keys to unlocking happy, romantic interiors: floral patterns and inspirational color.
From daises to roses, what’s not to love about garden-inspired décor?
Designer Alison Kandler has crafted a signature look based on sunny and sweet motifs combined with vintage elements and elegant cottage grace. Her home in Santa Monica, California, proves that you can bring the outdoors in with a style that feels fresh and not frilly, fun yet classic. Here are our favorite ideas of hers to steal.
Bed of Flowers
From the quilt and pillows to the window coverings, Alison’s guest bedroom is a symphony of mix-andmatch floral patterns. The key is to unify the style. Each print in this space is influenced by Bohemian patterns, from batik to paisley to Art Nouveau.
Let It Bloom
In an all-white room like Alison’s laundry room, a pop of bold pattern can give your décor some true flower power. We love how the pendant brings out a bit of color from the simple sink skirt.
Alison’s master bathroom is a balance of well-appointed luxury and vintage charm. The red poppy color plays a central role in infusing the room with warmth and personality.
Pretty as a Petal This rosy blush-pink hue gives this corner of the guest room a truly memorable feel. Searching for a special color for your walls? Look no further than a flower-inspired color—and some help from a bit of inspirational fabric.
