But, back to this stunning house...for starters, the art is drool worthy. Modern and edgy, and mixed with the cool lines of mid-century furnishings, the home is a balanced study of color and textures, and lots of whimsical details. It feels at once Jetson-esque yet modern and fresh with its very own cool west coast vibe. They bought the former home in 1997 on a historic lot (originally a 1960s beach house) and over a six year period they built this home from the ground up. Today, it is a three level home with an open plan, anchored on the ground floor by a floor to ceiling fireplace open to both sides. with over 5,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor living, the designers mix it up nicely from a chunky Moroccan wool rug, to textural vintage reed furniture and unique textiles throughout. While I was visiting their Jack Russell Josie was milling about, and it was noteworthy that even with strangers walking and poking throughout every nook and crannie, the couple could not be more gracious and welcoming.
