Electric Bowery’s design for the gut renovation of this ocean-view home was influenced by the Mediterranean character of the existing structure, with an emphasis on the more natural elements of the Spanish Colonial style.[p]>
We transformed the existing, more opulent Tuscan style and embraced a lighter, Coastal Spanish influence. We also were inspired by the clients’ love of contemporary art and music. As such, we infused a more modern and sculptural layer of furniture and objects into the more traditional architecture.
The natural plaster and soft arched openings framing views between spaces are balanced by the more unexpected collection of furniture and design elements, where richer pops of color compliment the earthy backdrop.
Dark wood flooring and ceiling accents, oxblood tile, and terracotta inlaid flooring frame the more sculptural furniture and a custom island with Rosso Toscana Marble top in the kitchen and dining areas.
Throughout the home, there is a play on pattern and scale with intricate tile work within arched frames.
To compliment the more traditional architecture of the home, lighting design throughout the home is a mix of vintage and custom collaborations. In the primary bedroom, bedside lamps are by Danny Kaplan Studio, with vintage sconces. The adjacent office features sconces by In Common With.
