Prepared to take on the night entertainment a bar area like the one pictured below takes me personally on a roller coaster through I-want-one-land. Luxury meets black when a sumptuous nature is required but this example of highly contemporary style needs owners highly motivated to party.
Though the color palette of the home is neutral with pristine white dominating the scene a touch of warm wooden surfaces and dash of color here and there offers balanced contrast. Modern art on the walls and accent pillows help add further color to the space.
What do you do when you suddenly realize that your home doesn’t suit your needs and taste anymore? You start renovating! That’s exactly what a couple from Bellevue Washington decided to do with their home. But they didn’t settle with just any renovation. Together with Seattle-based they came up with a ground-up remodel that turned their residence into a real dream home.
The former Friends star now owns this gorgeous home in Malibu that showcases a cool and understated coastal style. Interiors of the residence are largely kept neutral in nature with a heavy presence of driftwood that grounds the entire space and brings in the necessary warmth. The ceiling sports large wooden beams which also give the home a very distinct look. Another of Matthew’s former Friends co-star Courtney Cox already owns a Malibu beach house not too far off as well.
Contemporary features of the home were enhanced further by adding a stunning floating staircase with a glass railing. Interesting art work on the walls and the iconic Eames Lounger complete the transformation of House 1005 with style and sophistication!
An abundance of colors can also balance the cold feeling of materials used to create the living spaces. For example colorful glass vases accentuated by expressive paintings cut through the cold atmosphere buried in the steel and glass staircase thus lifting the floating staircase to new levels of expression.
Elegant and luxurious the charm of the Courtyard House lies in the tranquil and panoramic landscape that surrounds the structure. The home itself simply looks like a modern refuge nestled in nature’s soothing abode!
