Actress Michelle Monaghan and her husband, a graphic designer, fell in love with their Los Angeles home for many reasons, but one of the most breathtaking is the chance to see an incredible sunrise every morning. They say it fills the house with a golden light, and when you see the house, you can see where color and light played a huge role in the way they decorated it.
The home has a distinctly midcentury modern style with a few whimsical touches. On a crisp, white palette, they have introduced color in clever ways that create a beautiful impact and captivate you. They share the home with their two children and you can see the whimsy they have inspired in some of the decor while still staying true to a chic, modern look.

Bold, orange chairs infuse this modern dining room with a lot of life and cheer.
Two mirrors layered on each other above the fireplace suit the laid back vibe of the space while also bouncing light to make it feel larger.
One eye-catching piece of art brings an edginess to the vignette, juxtaposing the softer, more elegant sofa.
Charming trinkets adorn the coffee table while a white tray keeps it all organized.
The sheen on the bedspread adds a touch of glamour to the bedroom, which is a lovely balance of feminine and masculine touches.
The nursery is full of cheerful energy thanks to some beautiful yellow curtains and pink accents.
Seeing the pop of yellow in the bathroom is a perfect way to start the day every morning.
Bright, vibrant colors jump out at you against the crisp white walls and accents, creating a clean yet lively look.
Even the artwork is simple, allowing the beautiful colors to speak for themselves.
This home is truly a beautiful showcase of light and color!
