Eugenia Sangiovanni recently moved into a new home in Montrose, California. With two bedrooms and two baths, a full kitchen, formal living space and den to fill… she had her work cut out for her. She describes her style as “eclectic colonial,” drawing inspiration from Kloof Street House, Cape Town, Backstage Hotel and Zermatt Switzerland. She enlisted the help of her friend Nick LaKind to help bring her inspiration to life.

Eugenia admits that the biggest challenge in starting the decoration process was the amount of rooms and the budget. She also describes the long shape of the living room to be quite a challenge as well. She admits that she had nothing much to do with the redesign, and that she let Nick do most of the work…but her friends still agree that it’s totally “her.”

I think with any home that allows so much space to cover there will be many feats at finding the right scale of furniture and artwork. For only having lived here for six months I feel like she is off to a great start!
