Today’s home tour might be a touch familiar. I already blogged about this eye-popping kitchen here and even if you missed that, then you’re likely to have seen it scattered across your Pinterest feed.
But you can’t help but want to see the house in which this stunning marble-clad kitchen resides. If that wall to wall slab running straight across the vent hood sets the tone, then the rest of the house certainly has to be equally dramatic. Turns out, it is.
The single story home is tucked somewhere in Venice Beach (and I’m kinda determined to find it, it’s that good, but I fully realize that would be creepy), but I just have to know more. The few details we do know about this home have me obsessed. It features 22ft high ceilings throughout. Twenty-two feet! Now that’s some drama. I love the raw concrete floors. Exposed beams and soaring steel windows add graphic punches to every space. While many of the materials are very raw – steel, glass, iron, marble, wood – this home still oozes lush glamour. And the owners, an actress and a commercial director, designed it themselves! (oh what I wouldn’t give for decorating without a budget).
I spy steel doors (I should find who made them!). Also a kick ass denim patchwork sofa softens what could be an incredibly formal living area. Instead you feel totally welcome to plop down and maybe even put your feet up.
Antique doors and beautiful herringbone floors add texture and depth to the the master bedroom, as does that amazing royal blue velvet bed! But what really has me swooning as all the beautiful antique lighting.
The nursery remains playful and sweet, even with what appear to be raw concrete walls and raw wood above windows. The room doesn’t feel harsh. Instead, the gorgeous collection of toys, dress up clothes and books welcome you in. It’s proof you can make virtually any interior style applicable for a child.
This home feels like it was plucked straight from a rolling hilltop in Italy and plunked down in modern-day California. I love the original story that features this home – it focuses the owner’s approach to motherhood – I wish we were given all the details about the interiors. For now I’m going to just keep oogling these images and hope all the design beans are spilled in some decor glossy very very soon.
