Designer Danielle Hickman creates a palette of white to deliver big style and size to the small beach bungalow featured in our 2021 Spring issue.

“California dreaming is light, bright and airy,” says designer Danielle Hickman, who created this ambiance by painting the interior’s walls, ceilings and doors with a single color of white. “To make something this small feel big, it’s best to stick to one color throughout.” She added predominantly white furnishings to help make the rooms and patio feel more open and to foster the home’s “California style.” White accents—lighting to pottery, sinks to stone and tile—continue Hickman’s white-is-right palette. “The more consistent and minimal you are with your finishes, the bigger your space feels,” she explains.
