Media Room

Open to the gardens on one side and the ocean on the other, it's hard to find a less than stunning view from the Media Room chairs.

Though this is a question that often get asked with regard to various images, the answer I give is always the same: What you are seeing is probably the result of the color we painted, combined with the image exposure and strobe/day/halogen/incandescent and LED lighting, all of which effect the tone. Your best bet is to try to match it with a fan deck at your computer screen and do some text samples on your wall. I hope this is helpful.

As is so often the case with homes in Hawaii (or many tropical areas) the glass doors pocket into the walls.

To Saint Dizier Design - If not LED, what kind of lights and wattage? Also, what is the slop of the ceiling. Thanks

This sofa was custom designed for the room and it was fabricated in San Francisco. The back height is 40". Labor (without fabric) was approximately $5700. Hope this is helpful.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Though the living, dining and media spaces are all connected, Saint Dizier used furniture pieces and a smart layout scheme to make each area feel intimate. A high-back sofa creates a buffer in the media area here, while swivel chairs allow guests to switch views from the TV to one another to the garden out back and the ocean on the other side. Saint Dizier used a lot of copper accents throughout the house, to play off the stone floor and wood tones. He then added scoops of blue to correspond to the natural greens from the outdoors. Rough, primitive carved pieces, like the coffee table, were brought in to counterbalance the clean look of the wood cabinets and straightforward architectural lines. Sofa: Ironies, in Donghia fabric; copper benches: Robert Kuo
