Color scheme inside the residence is kept strictly neutral with white and gray being the prominent hues. Rugs with geometric patterning lighting and décor are used to delineate space in the open plan living area. Walls clad in ipe wood add warmth to the bedroom and the magnificent Pacific Ocean views turn this sophisticated home into a relaxing and fascinating escape.
Adding to the sheen of the steel façade are framed accent panels in perforated aluminum clad in bright red. The entry of the renovated home also features a tinge of red while the living area bedrooms and bathrooms showcase smart red accents. This creates a visual connection between the interior and the exterior despite the use of contrasting materials. Split into three levels the lowest floor houses a rental while the top two levels make up the owner’s duplex. The second level contains the living area kitchen dining space and home office / TV room of the duplex and the top floor houses the master suite along with additional bedrooms and bathrooms.
Apart from the warm color scheme it is the use of natural stone and glass that instantly captures your attention and fabulous French doors and large windows with dark steel frames enhance this look. The fusion of a multitude of styles is evident here with custom decor additions ranging from the rustic and vintage to the industrial and modern coming together effortlessly.
The lower level contains the public spaces with the living area being filled with a midcentury modern vibe thanks to the iconic Isamu Noguchi coffee table classy seating options and brilliant lighting. The kitchen and dining space connected with the living zone open up toward the courtyard outside and a cozy reading nook under the stairs completes the level. With skylights placed directly above the woodsy staircase natural light filters down to the lower level of the home while stripped-down vintage socket-style pendants bring additional illumination.
The pool house was crafted with the picture-perfect landscape that surrounds it in mind and its large sliding glass doors ensure that the line between the interior and the world outside is almost non-existent.
The staircase is often viewed as just a functional addition and few homeowners really pay attention to the aesthetic style it delivers. Fewer actually turn the stairway into the focal point of the sparkling modern home and let it define the ambiance of the interior. Accomplishing this with refined contemporary panache is the lovely South designed by Mitsuori Architects and this stunning abode places emphasis on a posh multi-zone family setting. The double-story terrace house was revamped and refurbished to bring in a trendier look and its sculpted timber stairs end up being the showstopper!
For some of us this is next to impossible but not for the homeowners of who have turned their waterfront home into a refined and inviting hub. To get this accomplished they turned to Amber Road who reinvented the living space introduced sculptural decor and artistic accessories and put in place shelves and storage units that offered better organization.
