High above Beverly Hills, California, this home on Loma Linda Drive by Chris Barrett Design epitomizes a fantastic combine between informal California and stylish custom. Neutrals abound right here: towards pure white partitions, the predominant colours are browns and black. Far from a stark or jarring mixture, nevertheless, this pairing of opposites works so nicely due to injections of sunshine via a two-story atrium-like front room, skylights above the eating desk, and reflections on polished wooden floors. Primary hues get their say, too: shiny pink and true blue spotlight a up to date artwork hanging on the lounge wall, then present up in additional delicate types within the patterned rug. A billiards room, full with plasma TV, exudes a “membership” environment that’s lightened by white shelving and enjoyable “director’s” chairs.
Likewise, the mix of vintage furnishings and trendy décor right here blends dignity with whimsy in simply the proper measure: the kitchen is any prepare dinner’s dream, with an enormous middle island that could be ponderous with that black granite prime…have been it not for the brightness of the eating space and homey contact of hanging copper pots to deliver their very own contact of shade to the scene. Bedrooms are richly appointed, with polished sleigh beds and 4-posters, complemented by nicely-beloved print rugs, plump-cushioned loveseats, and fringed afghans. And what lady wouldn’t love stepping out of a soaking tub onto one other vintage rug…or curling up on that very female lounge chair designated for “Daddy’s woman”? It’s a home that’s elegant but relaxed, with simply the best contact of humor, courtesy of Christ Barrett.
