LOS ALTOS

Rich jewel tones are the flavor of this home outfitted for a family with young children. An artful blend of old and new, high-end and low-end is the design mantra here. A 200 year old door from a palace in Rajasthan, India is hung on a pivot hinge and performs beautifully as the entry door. A nana wall at one end of the living room merges indoor and outdoor spaces. Notice the limestone tiled sliding backsplash in the kitchen that hides all clutter. One lucky boy gets to scribble on an entire wall in his room with a dramatic chalkboard wall!
