Room of the Day: A California Living Room With a Twist of Lemon (4 photos)
About a block from the ocean in Manhattan Beach, California, this cheery yellow living room is home to a prominent regional restaurateur, whose business is fittingly named Lemonade. In an effort to adopt the same citrusy, fresh interior here as in his restaurants, the homeowner enlisted designer Emily Maynard to energize the living room with a lively color palette.
Keeping a contemporary and beachy vibe, Maynard put together a palette of whites, cool grays, grapefruit pinks, yellows and aquas.
“My client is particularly fond of yellow and had a few outstanding Swedish pieces in his collection,” says Maynard, adding that they had met just as she was getting into Gustavian design, which echoes her client’s aesthetic.
