After: The grill station was made from fieldstone similar to the existing retaining wall along the property line and blend with the yard’s natural character. Mosaic Group used bluestone for the grill station floor. The counter is 4” thick black concrete with exposed Mexican beach pebbles and cantilevered over a round pillar that makes the space feel roomier.
This glam-meets-masculine master bathroom was created in its entirety with just three unique tiles used to fabulous effect. At counter height, a slim row of handmade tiles separate the large porcelain tiles from the delicate sea glass with a seamless run from the cantilevered countertop to the corner of the tiled tower. Solid glass doors with slight chrome edging act as a masculine contrast against the gold tones in the tile.
The end of the kitchen island is covered in the same hand-scraped solid White Oak planks as the refrigerator and freezer to complete the homeowners' request for something organic and unique. The planks are arranged in a chevron pattern to add a fun detail to the island and refrigerator and freezer. To offset the weight of the cantilevered countertop that extends from the island's base cabinets, brass poles were added to the outer corners of this piece. These brass poles match the brass fixtures in the rest of the kitchen, creating a continuous design throughout the space.
The contemporary kitchen features a black-and-white color palette with stainless steel accents. The large black island with a stainless steel countertop provides bar dining with sleek barstools. The original 1970s house was constructed on a series of telephone poles cantilevered off the canyon floor, so they become a unique part of the interior design.
