There’s a lot to love about California, from its warm weather and beautiful beaches to its hip cities and host of entertainment options. And for design lovers, the Golden State has also made waves for its easy-breezy style that brings the beach to you even if you’re miles from the water. Cool California style is recognized by its bright, sunny spaces; earthy hues; laid-back furniture and natural textures that create a space that’s curated, casual and undeniably cool. Draw inspiration from our Addison model at The Swift and discover the must-have furniture and accessories needed to recreate this chic style in your own home.
If you feel like you’ve spotted this sage green kitchen before, you may be recalling Mandy Moore’s dreamy space by designer Sarah Sherman Samuel. With grey-green lower cabinets, blond woods, brass hardware, and plenty of crisp whites, our kitchen at The Swift captures that same effortlessly chic look.

No Californian-inspired home would be complete without a pop of blue, and the sky blue drapes in The Swift’s principal bedroom add a hit of cheeriness to the space. The bedroom also captures another important sensibility of this design style, which is that your rooms should be comfortable and inviting above all — nothing is too precious to be lived in!
