Developed specifically for countertops, Granicrete has the great modern look of concrete, but is seamless and is certified by the National Sanitation Foundation as being bacteria-proof and stain-proof. The waterfall edge here creates an especially sleek look, without the weight and cost of poured concrete.
Developed specifically for countertops, Granicrete is seamless and is certified by the National Sanitation Foundation as being bacteria-proof and stain-proof. It's available in stone-like patterns like the one featured here, perfect in a more traditional kitchen. The surface never needs resealing as “real” concrete would.
To make the kitchen and living room feel even more cohesive, the architects extended the wood ceiling across the two spaces. A low-level loveseat and four armchairs give the owners room to entertain, without distracting from their stunning surroundings.
After a busy day in the city, this soothing master bathroom offers much needed privacy and peace. Here, the can settle into the tub for a long hot bath, or simply soak up the panoramic views spanning from Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean.
In this living room, instead of color, unusual shapes and textures create visual interest. The built-in shelving has beautiful wood detailing on the lower cabinet doors. A trio of golden stools make flexible seating on their own and together become a useful coffee table.
The architects took a staged approach to the home's design. The front living room is a one story, gabled space, while the rear space is a two story space that houses the bedrooms. Connecting the two are a screened porch and other secondary spaces.
Homeowners wanted a modern redesign to their home's exterior, so designers kept the long front porch that meets the neighbors, but punctuated it with modern, vertical windows that penetrate the painted brick section of the home's front facade. Then, they added cedar siding to warm up the exterior space. Finally, a navy blue door adds a splash of color to the design of the home's front elevation.
Subtle variations in color and texture bring a striking cohesiveness to the sitting area in this bright, open living space. The decorative touches are minimal which allow the modern style to shine, as well as drawing attention to features like the exposed brick wall, painted beams and natural cork floor.
To give this room some personality, designers added an orange stripe to the top of the walls. This brightens the space and adds a focal point to the room. Then, they brought in industrial shelving to provide interest and add storage and display options.
