Since this property overlooks the Pacific Ocean, evening breezes can become quite cool and possibly making evening use not as desirable as one would hope for. Therefore, it was important to provide a cozy outdoor gathering space that is out of the wind, and this space between the home and its Casita provides an excellent location for spending time in front of a warm fireplace, while it also provides for an excellent highlight feature when walking to the front door.
The clients thought the fireplace alone would be sufficient as a design feature, but after showing them that by adding the short wall, with several view-ports accented with wrought iron (that matches their Juliet balcony) it not only provided a true connect between the home and Casita, it also created a much more grand feature and a sense of enclosure without losing the planting depth behind the fireplace, which was needed for privacy.
Neutral penny tile creates subtle texture over the floor of this bathroom. A chevron-like accent panel on the wall brings the same subtle textural look up the wall over the smooth, large wall tiles. A stainless steel shower head and knob finish the simple shower design.
This handsome wallcovering is not paper, but a textile with details just like a tailored suit. The dark backdrop accented by thin, colorful stripes creates an imaginative, masculine look. On the walls: Maya Romanoff wallcovering
Thick bluestone shelves provide color and complement the room's stone walls. When grouped in threes, accent items feel especially pleasing to the eye, as is the case with these vintage green glass bottles.
