"When designing for a client or for a spec home, we design as if we were going to live there," Frank Lin says. "We look at what is comfortable for any kind of family to live in a space on a daily basis."
Generous cut-outs in the support wall connect the main living areas. The Togo couch and chairs are from Ligne Roset, and the sculpture is by Annie Morris.
An accent pillow isn't the only place where neutral palettes can get some color. In this Hollywood Hills living room, Pickens creates a cohesive palette by using the same shades on the walls, rug, and side tables.
The most important aspect of a successful neutral palette? "Texture, texture, texture!," Pickens says.
Designed by Atelier Du Pont, this breathtaking property exists in harmony with the surrounding landscape. Oriented in a manner that creates minimal impact on the existing terrain, the house idyllically nestles into nature, with vast views of the encompassing trees and vegetation. Inside, an orange Ligne Roset Sofa provides a comfortable space for rest and relaxation. A triangular window provides a picture of the tree canopy beyond, while drawing in natural light.
Boasting 18,500 square feet, the sleek residence is spread across three levels. A free-flowing layout allows the main living areas to seamlessly connect among the middle floor.
Furniture is now placed within the confines of the platform to create a defined seating area.
Brit and Daniel embraced elements that were original to the A-frame—like the wood stove.
As this view of the lake confirms, the landscape is powerfully visible from all cabins.
Measuring 1,116 square feet, the residence is flooded with natural light. The original stone wall becomes an alluring focal point upon entry, complemented by the home's light hardwoods.
Keeping in line with its dramatic facade, the home boasts a crisp, vibrant palette throughout. A moody-red velvet sectional provides ample seating in the main living room, while a shaggy, cream-colored rug adds an additional level of texture.
Thirteen windows in the apartment help maximize the fantastic views. The seating—including a sectional from West Elm and daybed from BoConcept—is now complemented by a fireplace specified by the firm.
The airy living room—tucked underneath a vaulted ceiling—flows between the kitchen and dining areas. A staircase leads to a voluminous double-height gym.
A hand-cut stone fireplace anchors one corner of the living room, which offers space for several seating areas. Long stretches of wall space also create the perfect canvas for displaying artwork.
Another 20 loft homes are available in the concrete building starting on the second floor. These spacious residences will feature wide white oak flooring, along with restored concrete beams and columns.
The spaces will also feature painted brick and exposed wood beams, as well as seven-foot-tall windows and ceilings up to 12 feet.
French doors seamlessly connect the main living room to the nearby outdoor patio.

Inside the guest house, exposed beams along the rafters create a barn-like atmosphere, which is enhanced by a double-sided fireplace. Large sliding doors provide natural air circulation and enhance the indoor-outdoor connection.
The Country French style is more apparent in the family room, which features a cathedral ceiling strapped with wooden beams. Natural light seeps into the space from large windows and doors along both sides of the room, as well as dormer windows along the ceiling.
Among designer furniture from Antonio Citterio and Arne Norell, built-ins filled with books line the living room of this Los Feliz, Los Angeles, renovation.
Throughout the home, large picture windows frame views of the greenery outside, including glimpses of a 150-year-old oak tree the couple worked hard to save.
Midcentury completists score the ultimate catch: a 1959 post-and-beam fixer-upper in which to showcase their sprawling collection.
With the renovation finished a few months ago, the young family is finally ready to enjoy their home.
The living room, kitchen, and dining room flow together in the open floor plan. Previously, the kitchen featured darker wooden cabinets in a more traditional style.
The interior paint color is Extra White by Sherwin Williams. It acts as a blank canvas for the moments of color to shine.
The Artichoke light in bronze from Louis Poulsen joins Vitra cork stools and leather couches from Borge Mogensen.
Now, a custom, steel-clad fireplace chimney stretches over 4.5 meters tall and imparts a sense of hygge. It was "designed as a contemporary take on the pressed copper flues typical of the era, while complementing and increasing the effect of the existing raked ceilings to the space," says the firm.
The floors and ceiling throughout are American oak. A floor-to-ceiling, plate-glass window measuring 2.8 meters wide (or about nine feet) overlooks the entry courtyard.
Original architect Roscoe Hemenway wrapped the interior of the house in Douglas fir paneling, which the new owners replaced with
A fuzzy white throw is draped over a Diamond chair by Harry Bertoia in the living room; the Tractor stool at the counter is by Craig Bassam. Leckie, who teamed up with Modern Organic Construction and Munzing Structural to execute the design, mostly stuck to three finishes for the two main floors: white oak, drywall, and blackened steel. Cara describes the home’s design as “quite simple—a modern Scandinavian look.”
Front entry and living area.
The couple approached Darren Bray of Lymington-based PAD Studio with a proposal to consolidate and weatherproof the building, while at the same time preserving its original brickwork. "We had in mind a new entrance that would make a good, strong impression," says owner Sheryl Wilson. Architect Darren Bray peeled back the layers of the previous owners' decor to allow the brickwork to breathe.
Living Room: With custom sliding doors that lead into the master bedroom.
Melanie Gaither Interiors selected light, beachy furnishing and finishes to match the view outside Haystack Rock Getaway. A deck outside the living room extends the connection to the ocean.
The outside is brought in with double-height NLT (nail-laminated timber) ceilings and automated clerestory windows.
Custom shelving now flanks the fireplace, now composed of encaustic tile from the Cement Tile Shop and a marble hearth. A floating cabinet on one side balances an uncovered radiator on the other, and Benjamin Moore’s Chantilly Lace unifies the scheme. Throughout the first floor, Bona Traffic white oak floors with a matte finish is laid in a herringbone pattern.
Urban Outfitters home collection is defined by cool color tones and classic midcentury influences.
The sunken living room is filled with light and leafy greenery.
Serene natural materials were used throughout the house to weather well under harsh conditions, as well as to create the sublime color palette.
The view from the tiled bedroom/bathroom cube. The Alta Lounge Chair, with its swooping lacquered wood base, was designed by Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer and his daughter in 1971. Nildo José designed the marble coffee table, as well as the pair of concrete coffee tables.
A collection of artful furnishings rounds out the scheme in Loft Ninho. The cool gray Saccaro sofa and rug by Domdaqui Tapetes balance out the wood tones, while a spectrum of green accents, starting with the mint trim, bring welcome pops of contrast.
Bedroom Open to Living Room
The couple purchased the living room’s H.W. Klein chairs with the house. Another existing piece was the mezzanine’s daybed, designed by Peter Hvidt and Orlando Mølgaard Nielsen. An original floating staircase leads to the mezzanine and then up to the second floor. The open, straight-forward spaces speak to one of Christian’s guiding principles: “Simplicity is the key,” he says.
The living area—or “dance floor,” as the Womersley family called it—has an expansive feel, thanks to high ceilings and full-length windows.
An elegant sitting room lies just off the entryway.
