Warm wood throughout and a touch of marble helps to accent the living rooms of a traditional home in Santa Monica, California. Natural light pours into these spaces from the generous windows and stacked sliding wall.
The new living room features a double-sided fireplace and floating staircase leading up to the master suite and cozy office. Framed openings throughout focus the view upon the large, existing site trees. The master suite brings the exterior indoors with floor to ceiling windows; continuous coves house recessed lighting and operable shades, allowing the textured walls to disappear beyond.
A plentiful splash of veined Calacatta marble cover the massive glass-enclosed shower and the wooden accents appear again to wrap and house a free-standing tub. Custom black-and-white tile floors completes the textured master bath.
Formerly a small two-bedroom, one-bathroom home, the addition features a master suite, laundry room, office, additional storage throughout, and a modernized living room. Construction is estimated to begin in early 2019.
