Hidden away among towering pines and orange groves, Tatjana Patitzs California home, full of flowers, foliage and double-height windows that draw the outside in, is at one with the nature on her doorstep. Here, an outdoor bamboo rainshower and reclaimed stone tub create an indulgent, Japanese-style bathroom.
Furnishings are an eclectic mix of old and new, antique and bespoke, faded rugs, wind chimes, stacks of books, and swathes of fabrics in earthy tones and textures.
The living area is strewn with textiles and cushions. Wanting her home to feel as close to nature as possible, Tatjana removed the living room ceiling to create a double-height space that allows light and the outside to flood in.
Create a romantic four-poster feel for a fraction of the cost with a gauze mosquito net. This light-as-air netting can be strung up in an instant, and is also less imposing than a solid bed, making it ideal for small spaces.
