Home tour- A white, monochromatic California home!

A mix of West Coast ease and French elegance reigns in this beautiful, light-filled northern California home. It is designer, Myra Hoefer's idea to select a white monochromatic palette and use a lot of texture to make this large and open rooms in home more livable. Let's take a look.











The soft and subtle monochromatic palette used in this home evokes a calm and relaxing atmosphere and the layering of different textures and materials certainly helps to create depth and visual interest. What are your thoughts? Is there anything that catches your eye?

  1. Those stools in the kitchen are insanely fabulous! Who makes them and where can I get one???? Actually, I rather like the whole place. Not normally a fan of all white, but this one is all right!

  2. I think that it's a beautiful home but I really would prefer a little more colour.

  3. The light color scheme keeps things light, fresh and airy, but there are just enough darker tones to keep the spaces from feeling washed out. I'm still not 100% sold on the mirrored cabinetry in the bathroom, but the marble is nice.

  10. I am not usually a fan of monochromatic colour schemes as I find them to be quite cold and clinical but this is totally the opposite! It is both elegant and warm as well as playful and relaxed. I love the animal legs of the furniture in the kitchen and dining room, and I also really love the cute butterflies on the living room wall!

    Have a great day Jessie,

  13. I love that there is a lot of white, but it doesn't feel stark or cold at all. It's warm and inviting. I think a family could live there without absolutely ruining everything with dirt, which is always my fear with white interiors.

  14. I am so in love with this home! I saw a coffee table that looked exactly like the white textured ones at Home Goods several weeks ago, I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. Seeing these photo's has confirmed that I need to track down that table and make it mine! Gorgeous!
