The de­sign duo be­hind Her­nan­dez Greene gives an heir­loom-filled Cal­i­for­nia home­stead a con­tem­po­rary up­grade.

Freed­man’s cre­ativ­ity really came into play when or­ga­niz­ing and in­cor­po­rat­ing his mas­sive col­lec­tion of books and art­work through­out the three-bed­room home. This in­cluded trans­form­ing an en­tire room into a li­brary and fill­ing it with trea­sured tomes ac­quired over a life­time. Here, the white color pal­ette show­cases Freed­man’s as­sort­ment of prints and paint­ings—in­clud­ing his own kalei­do­scopic creations as well as lively works from artists like Keith Har­ing, KAWS, and Russ Meyer; in ad­di­tion, gallery-style grids of art have been in­stalled on most of the room’s walls. By asym­met­ri­cally group­ing works in sim­i­larly hued frames (Freed­man sug­gests match­ing frames to your wall paint to form a float­ing ef­fect), he turned each vi­gnette into its own kind of in­te­rior mas­ter­piece. “The im­mutable laws of art—line, shape, color, bal­ance—can be ap­plied to all cre­ative en­deav­ors re­gard­less of the medium,” Freed­man says. “In my eyes, there’s no dif­fer­ence be­tween de­sign­ing a space or craft­ing a paint­ing.”

“I have two prin­ci­ples for book place­ment,” Freed­man says. “Art books by spine color and lit­er­a­ture by genre. They al­low for rel­a­tively pain­less adding and sub­tract­ing,

and the color spec­trum creates a strik­ing but cost-free dis­play.”
