We came across this beautifully designed modern California home on the internet and fell in love with its drama. And yes, it is not a typical Cali mid-century modern house. It is a house with color, texture , art and elegant details. It is a house with full of personality.
The minimalism architectural form of the house provides a perfect backdrop for the fabulous art collections by the owner. The chic and glam creamy console table with brass hardware at the entry sets the tone of elegant vibe for this house, not even mentioned the top-notch wall sculpture installation above the console and through the house.
We visited a little botanic garden yesterday. At a first look, it seems that there is nothing happening. But when we turned around and took a close look, then magical just happened. We saw the beautiful spring flowers with the most amazing color and shape are quietly blooming in the soft late afternoon spring sunshine. Then we found more and more amazing spring blooms almost on every single branch. We were puzzled that why we didn’t see them at all at the very beginning. Maybe we have to quiet our mind first and then able to see the beautiful things that we can’t see when we are in a hurry or when we feel anxious. This philosophy also applies when we design our home. When there are too many options and we just don’t know which one to choose, maybe it is the time for us to step back and take a deep breath, just ask ourselves a simple question: which one pleases my mind?
Here are some of the photos we took from yesterday’s visit. Please enjoy!
