Though the Full House actress and her husband may be selling their home in Hidden Hills, CA, it doesn’t mean we can’t still admire the timeless style of the home. Lori Loughlin’s daughter, Olivia Jade, shared images of the mid-century modern property on Instagram, and it’s absolutely gorgeous. 

Loughlin’s home is a masterclass in indoor-outdoor living. Floor-to-ceiling windows create a barrier between the living room and the patio, blending the distinction between the beautiful backyard and the interior of the home. Arched doorways and an open-concept staircase celebrate classic, mid-century modern design, which is complemented by wooden furniture and a rounded armchair. Natural light floods the space, and striped flooring flows from the inside to the outside of the home. 

The classic white, brown, and gray living room color scheme enhances the clean look and the natural light in the living room. The large tiles of the floor are striped with white, light, and dark gray, providing a surprising contrast to the neutrals in the interior. Though we don't often see this color combination, the gray pairs perfectly with the white walls and natural wood accents of the home.

The look is topping interior design trends this year. Color Expert and Homes & Gardens Digital Editor, Jennifer Ebert states: 'In the design field, we tend to flip flop between the popularity of warm neutrals, like brown, beige, and tan, and cool neutrals, like gray and light blue. It seems that people are growing bored of this dichotomy and instead want to see the colors together.'

She continues, 'Lori Loughlin pulls the shades together beautifully in her neutral living room. The gray floors have a slightly reflective sheen that helps to brighten its dark color. Its natural, stone-like texture makes it the perfect complement to the wood that lines the walls and makes up the furniture in Loughlin's space.'

'Furthermore, the natural light streaming in through the large windows enhances all of these effects,' says Ebert. 'All together, the look creates a quiet luxury effect, where though the decor is simple, it's clear that it's made of long-lasting, anti-trend materials that will impress through the seasons and stand the test of time.'

If you're nervous to choose between warm neutrals and cool neutrals, maybe this is your sign that you don't have to pick. When artfully placed together, brown, beige, white, and gray can look wonderful together. Lori Loughlin's living room is a great reminder.
