California Style, Epitomized: An Airy Lakeside House Redone by Jenni Kayne

When it comes to California’s laid-back, cool design, Jenni Kayne is the undisputed daughter of It. So when Fan spotted a whitewashed shack on Instagram on the shores of Arrowhead Lake in California that was recently redone by Jenni and her team, we took note – and asked Jenni herself for the scoop interior.

“We fell in love with the warm serenity of Arrowhead Lake on our first visit, and more specifically of this house,” explained Jenni. “Almost every room has a view of the lake, with endless potential and the possibility of creating something special to enhance its natural environment.” In addition, the cabin was not far from the company’s base in Los Angeles and, adds Jenni, the team had been eager to renovate their house since they had redesigned a vintage Airstream to mark the launch of the collection Jenni Kayne Home a few years ago. return.

But if the cabin frame was attractive, but the interiors were not – just check out the previous photos here. “When we found the house, it was dark, dated and completely intact,” says Jenni, “but I could immediately see how we could transform it into a light and airy lake house.” With the views from every window as inspiration, the team – including CEO Julia Hunter and her husband, Ray – set out to transform the house to embody the neutral and unadorned style of the company.

Now the house is a study on ease by the lake, “a place to relax and unwind”. P.S. It is currently on sale, in case you are on the market. Join us for a look.

Above: “I’ve always had a very clean and natural sense of style,” says Jenni of her brand aesthetic. “I really believe that you have to live well and for me, that touches everything, from your daily uniform to the way you entertain and cook what your house looks like.” At Lake House, our goal was to keep everything clear and bright, replacing dark and dull tiles with soothing whites and cutting edge trimmings. “

Here, the locker room and the entrance are equipped with a hard-working sink, a row of hooks and Jenni Kayne Home’s Oak Day bench. The color of the paint is all white # 2005 from Farrow & Ball, “a super classic white,” says Jenni (and one of our 8 favorite pure white paints).

The cabinets are custom, made by a local carpenter and painted in a subtle earthy tone, Farrow & Ball’s Light Gray. “We decided to use simple wooden cabinets with chicken wire instead of panes to make it more rustic,” adds Jenni. The worktops are in marble.

Above: “I’m constantly drawn to neutrals, both in my wardrobe and in my home decor, because they feel timeless, natural and relaxing,” says Jenni. “My thing is to focus on texture and feel, introducing different natural materials to create a richness that never feels dated or too busy.” Example: a mix of textures includes woven baskets, dried herbs and painted wood covering.
