One of the big selling points of the remodeled home was the built-in storage. In this home, however, instead of storing towels and bed linens these built-ins are a design element, showcasing even more of Mikel’s impressive collection of cultural objects.
The home office includes built-in bookcases with both open and closed storage. While files remain behind closed doors, color-coordinated books, vintage-style trophies and cultivated artwork are on display.
The dining area features a statement piece for the home: a built-in china cabinet. It’s the perfect place for Camille and Joe to store their collection of china, which has been sourced during travels to Europe and locally in California. A glimmering brass and crystal chandelier was also original to the home. The couple restored it, shining the piece and returning it to its original glory.
The entry's custom white built-in bench includes gray velvet pillows and custom pillows in a paisley print. An open storage area below has space for storing boots and shoes, with green baskets for grab-and-go items to pick up before heading out the door.
This outdoor room features a luxurious built in fire place. The large hearth provides an attractive focal point for the outdoor living room. Cool nights are no excuse for not spending time outdoors in this fabulous patio.
Interior designer Tiffany Brooks covered the backing of the built-in bookcase with green grass cloth wallpaper that highlights the white books and accessories on the open shelves, including a pair of fun white ear-shaped bookends.

The architectural delights of this home seem never-ending, and this massive built-in mirror and bench only add to the wonder. Here Nana Yaa offers another colorful display of books as well as a glimpse of her impressive collection of records. A sentimental, personal touch, the space is decorated with a single photograph of the designer’s mother.
When a closet has this much built-in storage space, it makes sense to have a chair in there, too, so you can sit down and take it all in. A wall of built-ins provides storage for all your clothing and accessory needs.
