Touch of Morocco in California
A 1920’s California Spanish style bungalow home with a center courtyard re-designed for the clients specific request for a home that is serene and sophisticated, light in color with reflections of her Moroccan background. A mushroom color palette was used throughout the entire house using paint tones and European Fabrics to take this color from room to room while complementing it with a wide planked bleached floor. The custom kitchen cabinets were made in a pale gray-green paint tone with Statuario White Marble for the counters.
Conrad shades were used to filter light and provide privacy. In the dining room and living room, we placed two 1960’s chandeliers; a Murano glass tulip chandelier and a polyhedron Murano which played off the updated Saarinen Tulip table. Her home office we custom made Moroccan designed laser cut pocket doors to provide privacy, filtered light and views of the courtyard. Imported Moroccan pendant lights were silver-leafed were placed throughout the house creating cut out shadows on the walls at night. Hand blown glass light pendants were also used in the bedroom and bathroom to accentuate the pearl Moroccan tile.
The drapery was in the same hues as the walls making the space serene and inviting. The daughter's room reflected her artistic ability and love for Manga, with clean modern lines reflecting a Japanese sensibility with wall mounted floating wall cabinetry. The house was completed by the client's beautiful extensive art collection.
