Cape Cod Family Beauty
With a second baby on the way soon, the expectant couple, whose first home I had designed earlier, hoped to avoid an extended design period of this lovely Palisades home. They were eager to be settled before the arrival.
With all due speed new furnishings were found, and most of the first home furniture transitioned well to this new one. As with many families, both beauty and durability were prime. We chose light and warm colors throughout.
A small dining room provided a challenge, as the couple frequently entertain. Our solution was an extraordinary dining table that expands with leaves from a round of 60 inches to an oval of 60- by 96-inches, permitting spacious seating for six to 12!
We added an inviting terrace for outdoor entertaining, complete with firepit, built-in barbecue, and ample dining space, while maintaining valuable play area.
The house has stunning views of the Santa Monica mountains, a backdrop for family enjoyment as well as indoor and outdoor dining.
