The owners aspired to an upscale, warm American-style décor that would also showcase their collection of Japanese artwork and antiques. Together we created a unique and welcoming home infused with Japanese tradition to reflect their multicultural heritage.
These spaces mix clean, simple lines with rich textiles and textures, fusing traditional Japanese aesthetics with a modern sensibility. The resulting rooms, bountiful with light and texture, occupy a space between Japanese understatement and contemporary vibrancy.
The owners of this Palos Verdes home wanted a traditional Japanese guest suite. The suite serves as a place to relax and reflect, and as a haven for houseguests to experience Japanese-style hospitality. The table accommodates a group dinner, and traditional bedding is stored in the oshiire behind the sliding fusuma doors. A garden and pool beyond the shoji doors completes the experience.
