With #StayHome as the order of the day, Luxe is whetting appetites for design by touring favorite homes from the archives—virtually, that is.
In the kick-off episode of the new digital series, Luxe Design Tour, Los Angeles-based designer Parrish Cameron Robe Chilcoat of Cameron Design Group joined Homes Editor Lisa Bingham Dewart to explore the schematics of a cozy-meets-refined bungalow in the tony California neighborhood of Pacific Palisades.
Among the hot topics of conversation: The renewed popularity of brown antique furniture (yes, even on the West Coast), prioritizing kid-friendly utility in a sophisticated scheme, and why certain artworks predicate an unexpected surrounding color palette.
In concluding the tour, Chilcoat and Bingham Dewart also reflected on a silver lining to the strange new normal we find ourselves in: greater communion with the notion of home as safe haven. Noted the designer, “I love the sentimentality of objects playing a role in how we live every day, and that make us feel safe and connected to our past.”
