In today’s modern and news-savvy world brand Russia is in a downward spiral. Yet despite its non-egalitarian standpoint on many issues Russia has often maintained an open-minded outlook on its varied architecture: from contemporary homes to brutalist facades and imposing palaces to the tightly-packed Khrushchyovka (originally well-intentioned these mass standardized housing projects were erected to deal with housing shortages and overcrowded cities in what was the former Soviet Union).
A new metal roof in dark gray with rain chains gives the exterior an interesting visual with warm ambient lighting turning this into a picture-perfect dwelling. Cozy bedrooms with custom décor in mahogany a home workspace with skylight and a serene large garden complete this re-energized California home.
The historical abode is fittingly replete with many of the furnishings produced by Carl Hansen & Søn and has the appearance of a quintessential lived-in Carl Hansen showplace. Indeed the large attic was renovated in 2014 and now acts as a showroom and additional living space. The attic’s angled roof helps confer a sense of intimacy and the wide oak planks from Danish company Dinesen add warmth depth and character.
A warm earthen color palette is used to ensure that the interior seems like an extension of the outdoors while complementing the wooden surfaces perfectly. The living area contains a snug living space with reading nooks and a fabulous kitchen and dining area with stunning ocean views that open up towards the wooden deck outdoors.
