The D2 Interieurs award-winning design studio evokes a light and bright atmosphere. Oversized light fixtures provide much-need task lighting over the massive desk area, and since storage is key for organizing samples, one wall is full of shelves and modular drawers stow away under the desks.
A floating staircase leads upstairs in this contemporary interior design studio to a bright and airy loft. The contemporary black-and-white window seat is the perfect spot to take a break and find a little inspiration.
Designers wanted to create an open concept home that feels an intense connection with its surroundings, so they coupled natural materials with a soft, neutral color palette. They kept the space simple and mixed in modern details, resulting in a home that conveys a strong sense of place to its inhabitants.
The living room of this Point Lorna, California, villa home features interior details which allow accents of the verdant courtyard gardens to carry throughout the house. Here the chartreuse of a floral painting complements the sun-lighted flowering branches framed by a window, while below, a fireplace is lined with firewood, its texture reflected in plush wicker lounge chairs decorated with soft teal pillows that match the greenery peeking inward through a glass door.
The home's exterior reflects the openness of the interior design-with large windows on each level and the balcony attached to the third floor bedrooms, the design of the home helps to create the feeling of openness and connectedness from the outside to the inside.
The custom railing, wood stair treads, beams, and stained beadboard ceiling treatments all collaborate in making this a successful updated brownstone. White walls add to the spacious feel of the design by keeping the room bright and airy. Neutral furniture in the sitting room blends beautifully with the floor and keeps a classic and timeless look to the design.
