Modern Design for Creatives - A Home Where Artists Flourish

Two artists - husband and wife - David and Mea.  One an architect turned director another a writer and sommelier.  Both very passionate about every detail that goes into the creation of all their living spaces; a restoration in Italy, a loft in New York and an equestrian ranch in Los Angeles.  We listened deeply and what emerged was the language of artists and a rewarding collaboration between everyone involved.  Here are some of their program preferences we referenced in our design:

  • Contemporary and Italian architectural sensibilities
  • The play of natural light constantly changing and emminating from surprising places
  • A respect for nature and earth in color and textures (our client mixed plaster colors and made wall samples themselves to find just the right exterior colors)
  • Rich yet organic in appointments - a rough luxury from water features to flooring
  • Craftsmanship in every detail

They call this their Xanadu Ranch.  Watch the commercial David made for GE Monogram in their new kitchen. Xanadu indeed.
