Reimagining a Historic Home
For the complete refurbishment of this substantial existing home in the hills of Bel Air, Los Angeles, the client wanted to layer the warm, easy-going nature of Californian living with the traditional interior fabric of the property.
MAWD’s design incorporates contemporary elements into the traditional structure to create a juxtaposition between the old and the new.
The earthy, warm tones of the palette and soft materials combine with contemporary detailing for a home that exudes casual Californian elegance.
The master bedroom was programmed specifically to function from morning through evening. The existing mansion weave flooring was refurbished and stained in a warm grey. Likewise, introducing a contemporary fireplace helped anchor the room and provide a central focal point.
The oversized master bathroom features a monolithic stone cube with a double overhead rain shower and touch control Dornbracht plumbing fixtures. Functionality and storage are also top of mind with built in dressing benches and concealed storage millwork vitrines dotted throughout.
