Beauty Home 2011

The grass green and pearl white color palette is cool and crisp. She keeps the same color scheme throughout the space. One of my interior design professors once told me small spaces - under 1700 square feet - should keep with one color scheme so that the style flows well throughout. Workman's WeHo Condo design is a great example of this color theory. And this living room would have fit in nicely in a previous Simplified Bee post on "Green Living Rooms."

The condo's walls and furniture are white and Workman brilliantly delivers bright green prints throughout the upholstery. You will also notice that she keeps the warm hardwood floors bare - I could only find one small white rug in the bedroom.

The simple, yet elegant dining room showcases a whimsical chandelier. The one-of-a-kind individually handcrafted chandelier is made from an actual citrus tree and glass beads and is one of Workman's creations. It's stunning.

Workman gutted the client's existing kitchen and created a clean, modern space. She selected gorgeous detailed hardware to the white painted cabinets. The slate floor adds an earthy feeling to the otherwise airy space. Very nice result!

The focal point in the bedroom is the beautiful giant leaf motif wallpapered wall that beautifully pulls the color palette together. My favorite element in this room however, is the butterfly hardware used on the closet doors. It adds a wonderful, unexpected bit of whimsy.

In November 2008, Workman opened The Red House Interiors to showcase her personal style. It presents a mixed collection of both high-end modern and vintage pieces, as well as original designs by Workman. It looks lovely and I hope to drop by next time I visit Los Angeles.
