Earlier this summer Kelly and I introduced Rewind Wednesday so that we could run way from our computers!! We wanted to play in the sun, swim in the lake, drink a glass of wine on our decks, even tackle a few of those projects we’d been putting off… all while knowing that our DesignTies visitors had some pretty pictures to look at and an interesting post to read.
Well… summer is just about over, but Rewind Wednesday isn’t going away with the warm weather. Nope. You see, Kelly and I are both very busy with the interior design courses we’re taking this fall so we’re taking advantage of our Wednesday reprieve.
Besides, we think we have some great posts in our archives that you’ll enjoy!
Like this phenomenal house I discovered while touring the internet one afternoon…
I am absolutely and unabashedly in LOVE with this wonderful house – the architecture is stunning and the decor is simply beautiful.
I wish I knew where I got the photographs from because the source would probably have mentioned who the architect was, but I did capture the interior designer’s name and firm: Meg Joannides with MLK Studio in Los Angeles, California. Be sure to check out her site because she and her team are amazing talents!
Now… I’m going to step back and let the house (located in Brentwood, CA) and it’s beautiful decor speak for itself.
Okay… I lied about stepping back! I wanted to direct your eye to the use of line in this home. The siding framing the front door above and the inlayed wood in the foyer floor leading all the way to the back yard creates wonderful line. In the photo below you can see how the same detail is continued out onto the backyard patio. Love it! You’ll see the this detail expressed throughout the house – the stairway, with shelves across a window (shadowed on a wall) and in the stone used on the vertical surfaces for example.
If I’m not mistaken the kitchen above and below is in the guest house – the main house, where most of the photos I’m sharing are from, is across the yard in the photo below.
Wouldn’t you love to sit under this gorgeous tree while watching a tennis match? Okay… you can play tennis while I watch!! :-)
I can’t help but repeat myself… I love this house, inside and out!! I hope you enjoyed touring these Meg Joannides designed interior and exterior spaces as much as I did… and continue to do! Again, I encourage you to check out MLK Studio’s portfolio of interior design projects via the link above. Or you can use this link to go directly to their Brentwood home photos… they have MORE lovely pics of this fabulous house!!
