Interior Designer Myra Hoefer

Today we are going to tour a large California home decorated by Myra Hoefer using a monochromatic palette and a mix of casual modern and French style. Winter White by Benjamin Moore was used throughout the house for the walls and ceilings.

At one end of the huge living room a slipcovered 13-foot sofa follows the curves of the bay window. The antique claw-foot coffee table and the pedestals for the vintage French torchères were lacquered in white to match.

This is the main seating area marked by an extra large rustic jute rug. Fluffy white pillows on slipcovered sofas and French armchairs surround two Pipa cocktail tables.
The butterflies on the walls are an art piece made from salvaged beer cans, by Paul Villinski.

The Louis XV—style bergères are new, not old, and were made in France. On the fireplace, faced in plaster mixed with marble dust, stand two antique candelabra. The sculpture is by Dan Corbin.

In one of the dining room a mixture of old and new with m
olded white plastic chairs and a 10-foot-long antique table, "narrow enough so you can really converse," Hoefer says.

Both the Vassaro chandelier and the metal hood remind Hoefer of a classic French mansard roof. She designed the A la Reine stools with goat's feet.

In this view of the great room, the entry foyer is on the left, the dining area is on the right, and the living area is behind you. On the left, a three-legged farm table is topped with a huge clay pot that Hoefer had glazed in white. Over the dining table hangs a Cassiopeia chandelier. Ajax side chairs are pulled up to the Hollandaise table by Astier de Villate, who also makes the armoire. An 18th-century French bombé chest and a gilded antique barometer complete the look.

Carrara marble in the master bathroom. A Pipa chandelier brings back the filigree motif. The fabric on the Roman shades is dotted with sequins that catch the light.

Four poster bed and shades of cream in the master bedroom. The ottoman is covered in white hide.

  2. I love her style. I had to buy this magazine just when I saw that living room in the cover - perfect.

  3. Hello Myra!

    Can you please tell me who made the coffee table? It is exactly what I am looking for!
