GET THE LOOK
Villanueva shares her décor favorites.
- Classic and contemporary, this Maude Flush Mount light fixture has a lovely silhouette. I also like the Altona Barebulb Chandelier. $299 & $1,209, rejuvenation.com
- This Slope indoor/outdoor bar stool is a perfect mix of materials. The slight curvature of the seat back sure seems inviting. $399, westelm.com
- Soft gray and sage tones will always have my heart. This Reef jute rug would look stunning in a dining area to break up the wood tones and add a soft, yet grounding, touch underfoot. $699, westelm.com
- I own this planter, and it adds a happy energy to my home. I’d love to see this color combined with all of the other details here! $13, wildewoodshop.co
- This Santa Rosa plank dining table’s warmth echoes the kitchen and is incredibly inviting to gather around. $749, westelm.com
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Krizia Villanueva of Oak & Olive Design Studio switched fields to interior design after an six-year career in occupational therapy.
“It took a long time for me to figure out my path and what the heck I’m doing,” she laughs. “Renovations and remodels are what I mostly do with clients — and I love it!”
In her designs, she loves using wood accents, warmer tones and wallpaper — which is why she chose all three for her mood board. She envisions the products and materials on these pages used in a kitchen.
“I love a mixture of feminine and masculine elements. I want all of my spaces to feel like you can invite someone in to sit down and have a sense of comfort all around them.”
