A Minimalist Beverly Hills Home
In some homes a sense of spirituality in decor is defined by dream catchers, meditation stones, wind chimes, and twisty stalks of lucky bamboo. The impeccably restrained Beverly Hills, California house, designed by James Magni interprets that concept in a completely different language. This is a place where serenity and otherworldliness are a function of pristine open spaces, seamless fields of white stone, sunlight, water, and sky
Geometric purity prevails at this Beverly Hills house renovated by Magni Design. The entry colonnade frames the hilltop view while routing visitors across a cantilevered footbridge over a reflecting pool.
Arrayed near the entry are works by (from left) Tobias Putrih, Aaron Young, Paul Noble, and Alexandra Grant.
In the living area, a cocktail table, stools, and a sofa by Magni Home Collection are grouped with vintage French armchairs in front of a fireplace wall paneled in basaltina.
The custom-made marble dining table (at left) is paired with Brno chairs by Knoll Studio; the tabletop sculpture is by Joel Morrison.
Full-height glass doors lead from the open-plan living area to the pool terrace.
The poolside chaise longues are by Float.
The sleek kitchen, composed of oak and stainless steel, represents a collaboration between Magni and Haefele Design. The barstools are by Mark Albrecht Studio, and the ovens are by Miele.
A lacquered-mahogany platform bed dominates one end of the master suite; the curtains are of a Clarence House fabric, and the hide carpet is by Aga John Rugs.
A slate-covered fireplace divides the master suite’s sleeping and sitting areas; the cocktail table is by Chista, and the side table is by Christophe Delcourt for Ralph Pucci International.
Varieties of white quartz-based tile by EuroStone and Caesarstone sheathe the master bathroom; the chair is by Peter Karpf from Twentieth.
