When choosing a design direction for the space, Good Grit editor-in-chief Shelly Brown notes that the initial inspiration came from the midcentury-inspired pattern found atop our Atmos Coffee Table. Five striking varieties of marble form curves, archways, and circular patterns on this mosaic tabletop. These shapes echo throughout the showhouse, including a green statement archway that leads from the living room into a wide hallway.
“I think as long as you’re sticking with what the particular house actually calls for,” Brown says, “the design kind of naturally reveals itself. That’s definitely what happened here, thanks to the partnerships that we had.” Brown cites “the beauty and artisan quality of all the products” as an ongoing source of design influence, including items like our Cane Collection, which is featured widely throughout the showhouse, including in the kids’ bedrooms.
Since the showhouse is situated near a movie studio, it was crucial to the design team for the home to contain bountiful creative energy. During the remodel process, the integrity of the original open floor plan was maintained in order to harness as much natural light as possible and celebrate the stunning surrounding view. With a wide infinity porch that opens onto a lake and an enclosed courtyard space at the center of the property, every room in the home is filled with invitations to get outdoors and enjoy the scenery. With panoramic views of the landscape, the sunroom features several sitting areas varied by purpose. “We really wanted to create a space that you could work from,” Brown says, “or just hang out with friends.”
