Set in the hills, in one of the most exclusive areas of Los Angeles, this sprawling family residence was completely remodeled to retain an East Coast sensibility. The kitchen is fresh and modern with white and charcoal gray cabinetry, gray quartzite countertops, new appliances and a unique diamond shaped backsplash tile. Adjacent to the kitchen is a charming breakfast room with beamed ceilings and a white brick fireplace. The family room was renovated with new built-in cabinetry and a custom contemporary fireplace. The flooring throughout the house is walnut in a matte finish. The home feels like it’s in Connecticut or the Hamptons, with white wainscoting and wood beamed pitched ceilings throughout. The dining room and living room both open to the expansive backyard and pool. We kept the color palate current with light grays and whites, offset by wood tones and wicker accents.
