Family-friendly Los Angeles home
With its crisp white walls and generous expanses of wood and stone, the house provides convincing proof that clean lines and spare details can be marshaled in the service of comfort and warmth.
In the living room, the fireplace was made of concrete, while reclaimed-oak beams frame the glass walls and salvaged-pine siding lines the ceiling; the pendant lamp is by Treasurbite Design, the artworks are by Alison Van Pelt, and the throw is by Hermès.
Among the works of art in the living room is an aerial photograph by Richard Misrach; the cocktail tables are by BPS Designs by Byron Stripling, the vintage teak-and-woven-leather chairs are from JF Chen, and the walls are painted in Benjamin Moore’s Super White.
More salvaged siding sheathes an intimate living/dining area.
A Gaggenau hood creates a dramatic focal point in the kitchen, which is outfitted with a Viking cooktop, ovens by Miele, and a refrigerator and full-height wine cooler by Sub-Zero; the vintage French pendant fixtures are from Obsolete, and the stools are by DM/DM.
In the study, a midcentury armchair from Blackman Cruz is grouped with a vintage glass-top driftwood table and a custom-made sectional by Molly Isaksen Interiors upholstered in a Wyeth linen.
Outside the room, a small terrace overlooks a reflecting pool with a water wall.
Framed artworks line the hallway leading to the master suite.
A vintage Eames chair and ottoman sit next to the custom-made walnut bed in the master suite, which is distinguished by reclaimed-oak ceiling trusses; the half-dome hanging light is by JF Chen, the large painting is by Van Pelt, and the watercolor portrait to its right is by Kim McCarty.
An ottoman and armchairs by Barbara Barry Realized by Henredon are arranged before the hearth in the couple’s bedroom; the collection of art includes pieces by Chuck Close, Julius Shulman, and Jock Sturges.
A JF Chen globe lantern hangs above a Waterworks tub with a burnished-nickel finish in Kayne’s bathroom; the fittings are by Lefroy Brooks.
On the rear terrace, Summit Furniture armchairs are upholstered in a Perennials outdoor fabric.
Landscape architect Pamela Burton conceived the grounds.
