Melissa’s Malibu Oasis featured in Architectural Digest

In a recent interview with Jenni Kayne’s Rip & Tan, I shared: 

Our home was a real labor of love and research, mostly the research done by my husband! We used Marmol Radziner as our architect and landscape architect because we wanted a warm modern house for our family. We wanted to live close to the beach so the kids could surf and just be closer to the ocean. We found this piece of land with a small house and knew this was the place we wanted to move and build our literal dream home.

We chose the right amount of wood and dark plaster which made the house feel both modern and warm at the same time. And, as you know from my personal style, I like to have fun with patterns, and bright colors. 

I enlisted Chloe Redmond of Redmond and Aldridge out of San Francisco to help me pull everything together. She is a master expert at creating spaces for families and incorporating lots of textures and colors that seem to all work in harmony.
