When the icon behind fashion blog Eat Sleep Wear, Kimberly Lapides, joined forces with California interior designer Anne Sage to decorate her master bedroom last year, we were floored. The result was a stylish, approachable, elegant, and quintessentially Los Angeles sanctuary. When Sage reached out to us to let us know that she'd worked with Lapides on another project, we couldn't wait to see it. This time, they transformed the main living area into a chic yet family-friendly haven.
The home was built in 1964, and the main directive for this foyer, dining, and living room area was to give the classic ranch style bones an elevated, modern feel that flowed nicely with the rest of the home. Sage and Lapides were set on making it feel really sophisticated and thoughtfully curated, but they had a few other things to keep in mind, too, like a newborn baby and three pets. If anyone can meet all of those needs, it's Sage, whose style is best described as "livable luxe."
In fact, the two make a great team. "Kim and I jive so well: She's got a killer eye for fashion and design, yet she's so down to earth and approachable. The spaces we've created [together] are sumptuous and modern with some beautiful investment pieces, but they also have an airy, beachy vibe that reflects her love of SoCal sunshine and shores," Sage tells MyDomaine.
