INTERIOR DESIGN BY SCOTT FLAX STUDIO, SANTA MONICA CALIFORNIA

Scott Flax is an architectural colorist and and interior designer active in Los Angeles.

INTERIORS WHERE PHOTOGRAPHED BY www.Johnellisphoto.com

The clients had always admired The Horatio Court complex in Santa Monica designed by Irving Gill in 1919 and had fallen in love with his architectural approach in this building. The design of the clients' new house is not a literal reproduction; instead, it is inspired by Gill's work, with the goal of creating a warm contemporary feeling coupled with an old world charm. The original bungalow was a total tear down. The new living room at the front of the house was moved closer to the sidewalk and shielded from the street with an elevated yard and soft hedges. The master bedroom on the second floor is set back almost 30 feet to distance it from the elementary school across the street. The bedroom is further buffered from noise with a walled patio that opens it to the glorious outdoors while maintaining a complete sense of privacy. The staggered planes of these new walls gives the fa├žade a scale that fits well with the neighborhood.

This project was a team effort with the owners, from the interiors and colors to the construction supervision. The success of the project is a result of that true collaborative effort.

Hi , thanks for liking the picture, the color is a mint green actually, I could try to find out the actual color spec, from Scott Flax studio which was the one who proposed this color, and ended up being the one chosen.
Scott Flax is an Architectural colorist, I would be happy to send you his information if you so desire, he could tell you more about it.
