A Los Angeles family of four's home is an eclectic combination of soothing colors and quirky decoration.

The downstairs deck, which extends from the living room and along the length of the kids' room, tends to be more active. The children ride their bikes there, and when Camilla and Benjamin aren't entertaining, they're reading or relaxing on the daybed or in the hammock, which provides the perfect respite from the sun. IKEA mirrors propped against the wall reflect bougainvillea bushes and bamboo trees, extending the landscape. "I've always wanted to live in the countryside," Camilla says. "For me, this is home."
