Valley Village Revival: A Bright + Bold Traditional
Our Valley Village Revival is our most recent project in Valley Village, California. The home had beautiful traditional bones, but our client loves color and wanted a bit of a boho vibe. She needed help in her front living room, entry way and dining room.
We knew we wanted to stay true to the traditional design of the rest of the house, but wanted to give these front entertaining spaces the bold pop she loves. In true Lindsey Brooke Design fashion, we went bold with the color but mixed in luxe neutrals, natural textures, and statement art for a traditional twist on our signature California casual vibe.
To kick things off, we sourced this incredible console table (20% off today!!!) for the entryway, acting as a focal point out of the adjoining living room while anchoring the entrance. Topped with this oversized print, the modern watery vibes contrast the traditional, reclaimed style of the wood console. We particularly love the size of the entry console, which provides storage drawers while still remaining open and airy.
As you walk into the formal living room, you’re greeted with the handsome chesterfield sofa in a saturated, inky blue with a gorgeous abstract piece (similar) above it. Here is the link to the exact sofa, but we found a great duplicate for a fraction of the price! Topped with an unexpected combination of pillows in green, pink (similar) and ivory – we pulled in that boho vibe she was looking for. The pretty metallic coffee table plays off the geometric lines of the traditional millwork while adding some sparkle. Mid-century vibes finish off the seating area with a pair of these arm chairs and this tree arm floor lamp. All of it is anchored by one of our very favorite rugs, which again ties in with the traditional themes of the house. The final boho details include a bold pink and red piece of art and our favorite carved end table.
To use the living room to its full advantage, we created a second area using a writing desk (under $200!), comfortable upholstered chair (also 20% off today!) and statement console. We love how this bay window became an elegant – and functional – moment. To finish off the space, we added a few more pieces of water inspired artwork, glass vases, and this sculptural statement piece.
In the dining room, we went with a deep eggplant purple above the chair rail to add a funky vibe to an otherwise very traditional space. The mid-century sputnik chandelier keeps things modern when paired with more classing dining furniture. We carried the boho vibes over from the living room with a hand carved wood bowl and a frosted beach glass bottle for the centerpiece.
