rustic elegant farmhouse in Southern California represents our love of country
living mixed with just a touch of elegance to better suit “city
life”. We chose a palette of soft whites with accents of gray and
kitchen is truly the heart of our home and was designed to be beautiful yet
range hood is the centerpiece feature in our kitchen and creates a warm and
inviting look, while the double islands add the functionality we wanted to
chose bronze-toned double pendant lanterns over the prep island, which we
painted a dark charcoal/blue. The darker
center island alongside the all white kitchen provides a pretty contrast.
oversized (36”) farmhouse sink makes a beautiful design statement and is also
incredibly practical and functional.
breakfast nook is on the other side of the kitchen and because of the odd shape
of that corner, we decided to be creative and included some bookshelves and a
bench seat. It turned out to be very
cozy as well as practical.
living room is a blend of rustic elements with an elegant farmhouse feel.
We used wide plank, French oak flooring and rustic hand-hewn beams to
incorporate a farmhouse style while the furniture and decor add a comfortable,
yet elegant look.
vaulted ceilings in this room allowed us to create an oversized gallery wall of
framed sheet music near the piano.
I love the clean look of an all white house, I also adore color. We painted the library a deep charcoal/blue
tone which is a pretty contrast next to the double French doors.
dining room is a blend of elegant details with wide crown moldings and French
oak herringbone floors, yet the furniture is comfortable with an easy farmhouse
the master bathroom we designed double vanities with a dark charcoal finish and
white marble countertops. Inset beveled
mirrors with double sconces keep the look very clean and fresh.
free-standing bathtub in our master bathroom sits in a little window alcove and
is one of my favorite places in the whole house!
have a small horse barn in our back yard with two horses that we love. We are able to trail ride just out our back
gate, which is a true luxury in Los Angeles. One of my passions is creating
beautiful table settings and we often have alfresco dinner parties in the yard
overlooking the barn.
