House on a Hill Tips its Hat to Vintage and Modern Alike

New, 1 comment

Calling designers, architects, and homeowners: have a house/home/room of note? Big or small, finished or not, city or country, we'd love to take a peek. Send project info and photos to the tip line.

Sarah Shetter and Alison Palevsky of SPI Design offered a look at this light-filled 2,100-square-foot Modern on a hillside in Nichols Canyon, Calif. Called Stream House for the babbling creek below, it's a marriage of interior details from SPI and a reconfigured open floor plan from Kovac Architects. The results? A "serene, eclectic interior that complements the natural setting of the home," says Shetter, pointing to a mix of touchstones—T.H. Robsjohn Gibbings chairs, a Florence Knoll desk, a Tommi Parzinger coffee table—and custom-designed pieces such as the dining table and the linen-upholstered headboard. SPI's genius? Incorporating the unexpected into the useful—say, built-in bookshelves made of steel. Even pieces like that, though, defer to an overall neutral palette that allows the homeowner's artwork to shine. Not to mention: the sweeping views of the canyon take center stage, too. Tour the home in full after the jump.
