This Los Angeles

Most Curated is a monthly series in which one editor, team member or friend of Livingetc will share the top 15 items on their current wish list.

I'm a born and raised California girl, so I have an eye for the state's cool, calming, and laid-back aesthetic. The biggest appeal for living on the West Coast is simple: the beautiful landscape. So incorporating natural elements and bringing the outdoors inside is key to obtaining this chic interior style. Wooden accents, neutral tones, and linen pieces are just some of my design essentials. To add some color to the airy and light environment, I recommend décor in ocean hues and earth tones. The result is a tranquil aesthetic reminiscent of coastal living. Keep reading to shop my 15 favorite pieces that will help you channel the "California cool" look in your own home.
