About the Artist
The design of this 8500s.f. house is to incorporate a few classic elements with more contemporary touches. For example, the house features many black walls – a detail the homeowners specifically requested, because they felt black was equal to classy. For these walls, the designer chose wallpapers and drapes that boast somewhat traditional motifs, such as a floral pattern, and combined them with furnishings and accessories that have distinctly sleek, streamlined silhouettes.
Designers also made the most of the home’s distinguishing features. The basement floor extends onto the deck, featuring a private infinity pool, which, at certain times of the day, doesn’t actually get much sunlight. To alleviate this problem, the designer punched a hole through the floor of the spacious terrace above and paved it with glass, thereby creating an enormous skylight.
