Chic in Montecito

You might remember that I visited Kendall Conrad‘s little shop in The Brentwood Country Mart on my last trip to LA.  Thanks to C magazine, you can now peek into her design studio and home in Montecito, California.  Just like her logo-free chic bags, accessories and jewelry, her home is pared down and neutral but definitely not boring. 

The design studio inspiration board and desk. 

I love the simple striped rug in the living room. 

A Picasso print sits a top the mantle. 

Kendall Conrad’s father, artist Barnaby Conrad, drew the bullfighter here. 

Even the firewood perfectly coordinates with the neutral palette. 

Another Picasso print on a bookshelf. 

Many pieces were purchased at Dos Gallos including the round table in the library. 

The house is very near the beach so hence the seashells. 

More framed bullfighters in the entrance with beautiful terra cotta tile floors. 

Another site had a photo of Kendall in the kitchen and also an outdoor dining area below. 

I love the photo of one of Kendall’s daughters below. Looks like chicness runs in the family!

    I am in love with everything about this house! It is perfection and so perfectly styled.

    Being an CA transplant I’m aware of the many “types” of Montecito. This is really lovely, Trad with a modern quiet palette and editing.

    I love the coziness of this cottage. I especially adore the outside eating area 🙂

    I’ve enjoyed Kendall’s pieces for years having subscribed to C since it’s beginning. Thank you for the “unseen” pictures. Such a fresh style. Shiree’
