Ojai, oranges & what? A boho home, of course!

Take a gander at this beautiful renovated boho home in Ojai, Calif., profiled in the September 2016 House Beautiful. It’s a getaway destination for an LA event planner and her family.

Interior designer Frances Merrill of Reath Design used the surrounding orange groves as inspiration for the decor and pulled those colors into the home. If you visit at the right time of the year, she says, the smell of orange blossoms fills the air.

Well, when I heard that, I was simply GREEN with envy. Yeah, like the Pierre Frey wallpaper in this dining room, sprouting leaves and all. The rest of the house has me swooning as well. Take a look around and see if you don’t agree.

Want more? I don’t blame you! Me too!!


But rather than show up on this family's Ojai doorstep come April, consider these options (but if you opt for the spontaneous visit, let me know how it goes):
  • Continue your tour on the House Beautiful website, or pick up a copy of the September 2016 issue.
  • Whichever you choose, be sure to read Tim McKeough’s interview with designer Frances Merrill.
  • Then visit the Reath Design website and check out Merrill’s stunning portfolio.
  • You’ll also enjoy photographer Victoria Pearson’s stellar interiors work, arranged by color!
  • You can also tour Pearson's Cali digs over on Martha Stewart's site.
  • And lastly, make sure not to miss a single day of BoHo Home. Get to-your-inbox inspiration by subscribing with one of the services that appear below this post, or simply follow my blog with Bloglovin.
