The show-stopper for me would be the one-of-a-kind oversized custom lighting fixtures throughout which act like the jewelry in the spaces. They are delicately detailed dangling sparkling and very shiny to contrast against all of the hard rustic features of the home. My team and I detailed and designed the oversized light fixtures to balance the proportions of the open floor plans and bring a feminine touch to the clean hard lines and masculine monochromatic interiors.
An unconventional structure brought to life by Jonathan Segal FAIA the luxurious Cresta residence in California pushes the boundaries of creativity to a whole new level. With a touch of industrial style thanks to its exposed concrete walls and the use of high quality materials and furniture Cresta embraces indoor-outdoor living with ease. And did we mention the recessed lighting that takes over the house after sunset? It looks stellar directly on concrete.
There’s something truly unique about this loft–low maintenance yet artistically curated. From the collection of plants and quirky finds displayed under cloches on the table by the windows to the assortment of indoor plants that add a fresh dose of greenery special flourishes are interspersed throughout the home:
A stunning rain shower from Dornbracht and a laid-back and soothing Japanese bath house complete the spa section of this amazing house. A fully equipped gym further ensures that you have everything you need to relax rejuvenate and replenish at this remarkable escape.
An open floor plan features the main living area the kitchen and the dining areas which are demarcated using pedant lights and a deft partition wall that doubles as a functional display. Grey and white dominate the color palette of the home with warm wooden accents adding visual warmth. A generous terrace allows you to further take in the sweeping views of Lake Washington while you spend some dreamy summer evenings admiring the waning shades of twilight!
The ambiance of the home is inviting and unassuming creating a sense of serenity the moment you step in. Unlike many other houses the master suite kids’ bedrooms with bunk beds and guest rooms occupy the lower level of the residence while the top two floors hold the public spaces. This was done to ensure that the living areas got the best possible views while the bedrooms combined a smart blend of privacy and openness.
Designers at E. Cobb Architects have outdone themselves with this luxurious Graham Residence. A consistent grey pattern — rather stylish I must say — broken with warm shades of wood and bold colors beautifully complements the amazing ocean views that are only enhanced by the huge floor-to-ceiling windows. Windows which actually define it as a ….glass house. Funny how a strong powerful material like concrete can mix ever so nicely with glass don’t you think?
