What is your favorite space in your home?

“We recently designed our master bedroom with Hutch, and it is easily my favorite space now. I love how calming it feels, and can really decompress from the busy days in there."

How did you approach designing your son Ryder's room?

“I think kids rooms are the most fun to decorate. Even when he was a baby, I always was drawn to neutral colors and away from a baby-ish feel. When we moved into the house, we decided to let him have a queen bed so it could double as a space for when guests visit. I incorporated things we collected over the years such as the vintage kilim rug I got at a flea market years back, and a Pendleton blanket we bought on a trip to Lake Arrowhead. We decided to give him a quirky gallery wall and desk as he loves to draw. The oversized Pizza Pony picture is from a dear friend of ours, Jonpaul Douglass. Ryder did not have a lot of opinions when it came to his room, just a request for a place for his Legos. I can’t tell you how many he has because it is ridiculous, but we conceal them in storage bins under the bed and in his closet. Most of the time it looks like a Lego bomb went off in his room!”

What was the biggest challenge of redesigning your home?

"The kitchen remodel. The overall process was pretty seamless since we hired great contractors and it was finished in a relatively short period of time, but it was definitely overwhelming at times making decisions on materials and trying to picture how they would work together."

What was the easiest part of the redesign?

"Painting the house. We picked the white paint we wanted the day we got the keys, and once the house was all white, it automatically had the vibe we were looking for.”

When Aisling, VP of Brand & Design at Hutch—a platform and mobile app that mixes 3D technology with online shopping to let you virtually decorate your space—approached the design of her home, she went for a more minimal look, only incorporating things she and her family truly love.

“Since the house is not that big, we wanted it to feel calming and airy,” she said. “We also wanted it to feel comfortable and not too stuffy, so it was important to work with fabrics and materials that could handle the inevitable spills and wear of life with a kid and dog.”

Each space in Aisling’s Studio City home—which she shares with husband Andrew and eight-year old son Ryder—is more serene than the next, with natural light steaming in the windows, a soft palette of creams, whites, and neutrals hugging the place, and a bounty of texture (from knit throws to woven chairs) around every corner.
