The unifying thread? A neutral palette. Working with creams, whites, browns and grays allowed Niday to go all out with sumptuous fabrics and textures without creating sensory overload. "Even when I try a pillow with a little color in it, I can't stand it," she says. "It becomes too chaotic in the open space." Niday slipcovered the sofas in white denin and had the ottoman in the center constructed and upholstered. The two Bergere chairs in the distance are 18th century pieces covered in the same dark gray Belgian linen as the ottoman; the fabric came from a Newport Beach store called Juxtapostion Home.
