This Los Angeles, California house designed by La Kaza and Meridith Baer Home is as much about lifestyle as it is about aesthetic style. The first thing you’ll notice is the breathtaking views and the way they are incorporated into the architecture itself. This glass wall house features massive sliding windows and wall openings framing scenes of the gardens and private courtyards that seem to work their way from outdoors in. The illuminated city skyline sparkles on the horizon. Inside, no detail has been overlooked, from the luxe marble and cool concrete walls, to the contemporary style lighting and furnishings between them. Check out this luxury house design and enjoy the view!
The stone block walls are earthy, yet luxurious and industrial all at once. The warm wood floors soften the coldness of the stone.
The marble walls flanking the dining area lead you out to the terrace overlooking the spectacular views.
As if the views weren’t dramatic enough by day, at night they sparkle like strings of diamonds in the distance. The rustic style dining table is topped by stone-inspired smoky glass pendants lights, clustered and staggered for added drama.
Beyond the dining area, the kitchen boasts the same mix of modern and organic. The grainy wall of cabinets adds a natural texture and color to the otherwise stony-grey space. The center island continues into a wood breakfast bar. Pull up a stool and take in a chat, a casual meal, or the view!
The kitchen also features open walls overlooking a private garden wall.
The living room is a lounger’s haven, with a massive plush sectional and trendy stools organized around a fireplace. The living area opens to the patio through floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall glass.
The patio area features another outdoor living room complete with a fireplace of its own and a swimming pool, all looking out over the city.
Just around the corner, the patio also opens to the bedroom – private, yet connected to the outdoors and the rest of the main living areas.
Imagine waking up in the morning to the rising sun, sliding open the glass walls, and diving into the pool just outside. Un-real!
We love the warm yet cool grey palette in this soothing space. It complements the home’s contemporary aesthetic, without detracting from the view.
The bedroom leads into the adjoining bathroom, with a bold black and white veiled marble wall with integrated two-faced fireplace. When the flame is out, the fireplace becomes a window with outdoor views.
Of course, that isn’t all when it comes to views. Past the freestanding soaker tub at the center of the space, an open wall overlooks a private garden and lush, landscaped wall that brings the outdoors in while lending leafy privacy to the space.
This Zen garden is made for sweet serenity, the perfect addition to this spa-inspired bathroom.
Another bedroom – simplicity inside in color palette and furnishings, and a glass wall opening to a private courtyard area.
Forget the bedroom with a small sitting and reading nook tucked into a dark little corner. We love the idea of sliding open the walls and stepping out into a gorgeous, green garden.
These glass panels flip open and closed to let the outdoors in one demand.
The office area features a contemporary glass wall that visually expands the space of this room. The rustic style furnishings, cowhide rug and leather chairs warm up the otherwise cool aesthetic.
You know what they say, “Work hard, play hard.” Luckily, this home is equipped with some adult “play rooms” that are sure to impress. Start with the wine cellar.
This natural, wood-wrapped room features a wall-mounted wire rack to store and display bottles, and a tasting area.
The private screening theater is the place to be for film aficionados.
The powder room offers a good dose of drama. The black tiles back wall is illuminated with vertical lights.
At the end of the day, whether you find yourself inside or outside, the views and the design of the spaces will leave you breathless.
