GRAND RESIDENCE

Ethnic Contemporary Downtown Los Angeles

Technically, contemporary design is rooted in the moment (as in this moment, here and now — how's that for having to think on your feet?). But in broad terms, it represents an about-face from the conventions of traditional décor.

Less is more: smooth profiles instead of ornamentation, solid or subtly patterned fabrics in lieu of colorful prints, minimal accessories rather than big collections. While it doesn't have the overt warmth of older design styles, it won't cast a chill either.

We explored with materials to bring the essence of ethnic sensibilities combined with the warmth of the timeless neutral palettes.  Comfort enhanced with unique finishes and materials gave our clients home unparalleled elegance and sophistication.  We created the pebble wall with the illuminated shelve and fireplace to surround the low seating area for dining and conversation.  Notice the wall coverings in the bathroom and the upholstered walls next to the concrete in the master bedroom.
