Japanese Tea House and Sawn Granite Path Create Balance in Asian Garden
In this peaceful Asian garden, a pre-existing Japanese tea house and sawn granite walkway strike a beautiful visual balance. The lilac flagstone of the pathway not only complements the traditional lantern statue, but also helps to establish a clean and defined space for visitors to walk through.
The focal point of this peaceful bedroom is the custom-designed cherry wood platform bed, along with matching floating nightstands and a wall-to-wall dresser. A carved wooden armchair with a plaid cushion and red pillow sits in the corner, while a wooden Zen sculpture is featured on top of the dresser.
A floating wood staircase with a cable railing leads to the second floor of this Asian-inspired home. The open floor plan allows for easy entertaining from the kitchen to the living and dining rooms, while colorful art adds interest and energy to the space.
This kitchen, designer Amy Finley's own, is all about common sense. The kitchen is the gathering place for her five children and for weekly dinners with extended family. Things stay hot in this minimalist kitchen with custom La Cornue appliances, radiant-heated limestone floors, a stainless steel meat counter and hidden warming drawers. The ceiling centerpiece, commissioned metal artwork by an artist from Venice, Italy, was specifically designed to diffuse the bright San Diego sunlight from the skylight.
Style abounds in this Asian-inspired bathroom in shades of turquoise and brown. White tile with turquoise accents makes a unique and stunning statement in the shower, while the dark brown vanity and turquoise and brown cornice at the window add drama and depth to the space.

Gorgeous wood paneling and cabinets give a refined cabin feel to this open concept kitchen and dining area. Spare, clean-lined elements are expertly mixed with organic accents like the wood table and stools.
