Cool in California


Last week, when I stumbled across the portfolio of Walker Warner Architects, I was taken back by their natural approach to building home environments.  Their portfolio boasts an impressive array of properties situated on countrysides, mountain ranges, and ocean fronts.  Modern structures that blend seamlessly into their environments.  Rich woods blended with cool natural stone, and even the fabrics selected by designer Shawback Design Associates, compliment the enduring and sustainable style. 

This cool California home is one with it's surroundings.  It is evident how much energy went into studying the existing landscape to create a natural house.  Rooms that feel like they are outdoors, but sheltered behind glass and wood beams. A truly exceptional natural space.

  2. STUNNING is right! I love when you find the mixture of old and new, twisted into something so fabulous! That large window with the view is something I dream of having one day! Thanks Vie xo

  3. Not really into this look, its too sparse and not warm enough for me. I appreciate the colors and know it was done well for the style but its just hard to warm up to spaces like this for me personally.


Would love to hear from you !
