Tour a California Coast Home with the Classic Blue-and-White Palette in a Modern Twist

The color of blue has been huge in the year of 2020. As matter of the fact, the color of blue has been always one of the most likeable colors by people globally. The magic often lies in how to play with pattern and texture to create a sophisticated and layered look in the sea of blue that is not only calm, soothing but also rich, warm and inviting, the way that we want our home to feel. Mark D. Sikies is one of the masters to often use blue-and-white palette to create a modern classic beauty in people’s life. Today we are going to tour his latest project for fashion designer Karen Kane . Mark Sikies re-imagined Karen’s dark and dated 1980 home in Pacific Palisades, California and transformed it into a relaxed and gracious Provençal estate with a vivid dance of blues and aged artisanal finishes.
