If I were to choose a designer for my own home based on how I want to feel, I would choose Kristen Hutchins. I found her designs and it was love at first sight. A California based designer who put her time in with designers Ruthie Sommers and Kelly Wearstler, she paints the California Chic style to a 'T'. When I think of the sunny state's Pacific Ocean inspired interiors, I think of bright, colorful, surfer-y, laid back, eclectic, somewhat modern, and just plain 'cool'. I want to hang out with the people who live in these homes, drink sangria and laugh and swim the day away under the sun. Hek, what am I saying, I want to BE one of these people (as I write this blog post there are snow flurries out my office window and I can hear the traffic and sirens from the street...)
And for the imagery:
Kristen, you are fabulous!
