PORTFOLIO – LOS GATOS

An Organic Dining Room

The French doors open enabling a view of the woods while a soft breeze rustles the eclectic Ingo Maurer light fixture creating dynamic energy for family and friends. Guests are invited to contribute their thoughts to the rice paper panels creating a chronicle of enjoyable dinners and interesting remarks. The color palette, furniture selections and artwork enhance the natural environment producing a comfortable space to entertain.

A River Runs Through It

Various stone, wood and metal finishes articulate rhythms of nature and geometry creating this peaceful family kitchen with a view of the surrounding wooded property. Mariachi green granite on the island conjures a rippling brook while the slate mosaic backsplash and limestone counter continue the illusion on the perimeter. The crisp wall color changes with the light throughout the day producing a room rich in texture and personality. The many workstations created make it remarkably easy for this multigenerational family to participate in meal preparation together. All these elements create a functional environment that is now the heart of the home.

Inviting the Outside In

Organic elements and dramatic colors bring life and energy to the versatile off-white furnishings making this small living room an inviting place to entertain, relax and enjoy the view.
