Kilim Covered L.A. Solarium

(via One Kings Lane, photography by Nicole LaMotte)

Bright, light, and layered, this solarium/greenhouse room in the hacienda-style house of Katie Tarses is a truly magical space. It’s wide open floor-plan was a daunting proposition at first, but Katie split it up into dining and living spaces and layered lots of gorgeous rugs to add warmth and comfort underfoot. In fact, all those Kilim rugs are actually stitched together to create one big one. To balance out all those cozy pinks and oranges, leafy greens line the walls and keep things feeling like a jungle. Although Los Angeles doesn’t experience much of a Winter, I bet this space is the perfect retreat during the cold(er) months!

  5. I saw this home tour on OKL and nearly died over the gorgeous colors and greenery! This space is amazing, and one that I could never get sick of! It’s like a permanent vacation, even while working 😉
