The client: He’s a movie executive and she’s a super stylish mother and member of multiple charity boards.
The design challenge: Work with the contractor to design a 2nd floor addition to their home that would blend seamlessly with the existing structure. Thus, the existing single-story, dark, bungalow-style home was transformed into a light-filled 2 story Cape Cod house with amazing views of the Santa Monica mountains and ample living space for this busy family of four. Traditional details abound, including custom wood paneling in the formal living area and custom bookcases and cabinetry throughout the house. The palette was narrowed to a beautifully contrasting blend of dark flooring, white walls, and richly textured furnishings. Construction by Albino Construction. Furnishings by Brenda Antin.
