Modern Zen Culver City Home
Can you believe that a family of 4 with 2 small boys lives in this perfectly curated home? Its all credited to my client, M, who is the master of editing. We offered her many more choices than what you see but with clear precision she was able to cut it down to the barest of needs. A carefully selected collection of beautiful new items for her beautiful new home.
The home is pretty small but with the vaulted ceilings and skylights, it feels airy and gallery like., which makes all the sense in the world given that she is a Japanese artist rep. Yup, the amazing pieces of art you see on the walls is all through the artists she represents. Her Japanese aesthetic is also clearly evidenced with the minimally modern furniture that takes on natural forms and textures.
She started out with a more modern ambitions when it came to accessories, but I feel like an important element of making a modern home feel warm and inviting is to bring a few bohemian accessories and organic forms and she came around quickly enough.
The living room is open to the dining room and kitchen into one great living area. I love the connected flow in the one large space that allows the family to share in activities.
One extra large bookcase houses their library as well as creates the visual barrier that transitions from the living areas to the quieter children's bedrooms. We added a salvaged barn wood sliding barn door to muffle the sounds between the two zones.
Moving along to the bedrooms, the master suite is also small but we packed as much delicious bedroom furniture we could to create a serene quiet and very cool retreat. The crowning glory of this bedroom is the Kalon Studio Simple bed. What an elegant study in simplicity.
And of course the sweet and minimal nursery. Monochromatic with a splash of colorful geometrics.
