When you envision a house in California, what comes to mind? For most of us, it’s beautifully bright, airy rooms with tall ceilings and oversized windows to let in an abundance of natural light. It’s a blend of textures, colors, and details that pay homage to the natural world, while retaining a sense of warmth and coziness. Well, if any of that sounds completely dreamy to you, you probably need to incorporate California casual style into your home.

This interior design style isn’t a new trend by any means, but it’s an aesthetic that has endured, and for good reasons. It doesn’t matter if you don’t actually live in California, or on the coast (although bonus points if you do). This style is all about embracing indoor-outdoor living, seamlessly blending aesthetics that are lean coastal, rustic, and modern all in one.
