Perched atop a beautiful spot that overlooks the ocean in a regal fashion the home is as impressive inside as it is on the outside. The indoors are beautifully decorated with top notch furniture and architecture’s skill is exhibited throughout in a striking manner with the use of superb arches and glittering finish. The curved structure is creative unique and definitely one of the most distinctive homes on the Californian coast that has no dearth of luxury homes.
A cleft between the high roofs and the walls allows for free passage of air and light into all the levels and there is ample natural ventilation. The architecture relies on minimal use of walls and they have been erected only in places where they are necessary with glass extensively and expansively filling up in most other places. From the highway the house appears too short and lying on its backdrop is the large beautiful ocean.
The catwalk staircase in the central is the major highlight here. The sitting area and office are on the second floor. The interiors reflect an ultra-modern outlook. Since the couple have baby boy born towards the end of the renovation works baby-proofing elements were also incorporated into the design.
The very first thing you notice here is the use of the colors. Efforts have been to taken to provide each room with special and separate identities. Texture color and outlook of each room are distinct and exist as separate entities connected to one another.
Spread across 12000 sq ft of space the mansion created by and of jamesthomas imbibes all those natural elements into it at the same time sports a very modern outlook. Once you step inside you can find that the indoor decor has been done in a way that it holds an earthly sort of sober tone to it. There is not much use of any contrasting color or style and everything appears to be in a neutral and balanced way.
My favorite is the kid’s bedroom which in contrast is lavishly decorated and appears like a crowded space full of colors and energy. The outdoor seating arrangement is so cool with the simplicity of the furniture and the lamp shades. Though everything here appears quite simple a lot of effort has been taken to attain the perfection. So that is a perfect example of a countryside home in Ireland. Already longing for one?
In contrast the kitchen very simple and the main aim has been to make it more functional. The designer has succeeded in that. Like Andrews’ other projects vintage pendants light fixtures vases and the like are used aplenty here too. In short what you get to see is an amalgamation of all styles and periods. It has won the 2012 CH+D Award winner for Residential Interior Design. The house stands on 3000 sq ft of space.
