Jungalow by the Mountain, Home Tour

This put up is accommodates gifted objects from Reform Cupboards, GE Cafe, Kohler, Velux Skylights and Zia Tile. Thanks for supporting our companions. 

Welcome to #JungalowByTheMountain! I’m excited to ask you into our residence in the present day and take you a bit behind the scenes and share inspiration and assets into our new residence.

The Entryway

First up — the entryway to our residence. (Above and under).  I needed our entryway to really feel heat, inviting and pleased, so we painted it a mellow yellow (Farrow & Ball, Citron). I  wish to have welcoming symbols at our entryway so that you’ll discover arms waving good day and goodbye, angels, hearts, and lovebirds all gathering right here.

The classic console desk (c. 1980’s) was one of many first items I bought for the home. I discovered it on Chairish.com and I used to be drawn to its strains and chunk — additionally, the colour was completely pink and ended up informing the colours of the entire room.

The arched area of interest got here with the house (humorous as a result of in our final residence, we created a number of arched niches that look identical to this one). We have been impressed by our journey to Jaipur, India to color the area of interest yellow and so as to add the yellow stripe across the room.

Paint Colours:
Backside half: Farrow & Ball Ointment Pink
Higher half: Farrow & Ball Pink Floor
Yellow Stripe and in area of interest: Farrow & Ball Citron

I had been accumulating the little brass Moroccan mirrors for years and on a whim, determined to construct a gallery with them across the area of interest. Placing them up was enjoyable — I attempted to create a non-symmetrical/ symmetrical scenario. How did I do? 😛 You will discover these mirrors on Etsy do you have to wish to replicate the look.

The Dwelling Room

Our lounge is de facto the center of our residence. One in every of my intentions for this residence was to entertain rather a lot, so I actually needed an area the place individuals might collect, play video games, dance, sing, and curl up by the hearth–however this room additionally wanted to operate nicely for me and my little household too — I needed it to be cozy for film nights, charades or studying a very good e book.  We added the bookcases that flank the hearth, in addition to the sunshine fixtures and the paint, however the remainder of the room stayed just about as we discovered it. The couch (which is without doubt one of the most lovely and most cozy sofas I’ve ever had, is the Paloma Couch in Maestro Loden Material by my mates at Clad Residence.

The Lanai

Off the lounge is without doubt one of the most magical areas in the home, the lanai — which I actually needed to make really feel like an indoor backyard someplace within the Mediterranean. The factor that I’m most happy with on this area is the ground tile sample. The tile is one which I’ve cherished for years and years, a conventional Moroccan sample that I acquired from Badia Design, a tremendous Moroccan import retailer in North Hollywood. We took a leap of religion and had the tile put in in a non-traditional, random sample, and it makes me pleased each single time I move over it. So, so wild. 

Paint Coloration:

The Kitchen

And into our kitchen!! After residing for nearly a whole 12 months with a makeshift kitchen arrange within the lanai — doing dishes in an outside sink and “cooking” with countertop home equipment– I don’t take this kitchen without any consideration! I’m obsessed! And I’m having fun with cooking like by no means earlier than.

The point of interest of our kitchen needs to be this space with the GE Cafe induction vary. We acquired the induction vary as a result of ultimately, we hope to have the entire residence operating on photo voltaic with out the necessity for gasoline. (Additionally–aspect word — there may be an ordinance banning gasoline stoves from all new residential and business constructions to assist scale back dangerous greenhouse gases by 2023 in California, so we figured we would as nicely get used to cooking on an induction stovetop.) And I’ve to say, to this point I LOVE it. Water boils so rapidly on this range, I can steam veggies or boil water for pasta in only a few minutes! Additionally, the stovetop itself doesn’t warmth up after we’re cooking–and since Ida is simply beginning to present curiosity in cooking, it makes me really feel extra comfortable letting her cook dinner scrambled eggs and issues understanding the stovetop received’t burn her li’l fingers.

The double oven is a vibe. Final week I roasted brussel sprouts and asparagus up prime whereas making salmon down under. Into it. I selected the white end for the vary in order that it will recall the white {custom} vary hood above it (extra particulars on that under) and we went with the Brushed Bronze end on the {hardware} and we now have a complete eclectic, mixed-metal factor happening within the kitchen that I really like. 

I designed the {custom} vary hood and had it constructed by our superior contractors, New Era Residence Enhancements. It’s product of cement and we used the GE vary hood insert for the performance. The tile on the backsplash is Terra Rosa hex Zellige from Zia Tile . I really like the colour variation within the Moroccan tile a lot. We tried to maintain grout strains minimal and used a darker grout that we needed to mix in to the tiles so the eye would stick with the tile, not the grout.

We additionally put in a Kohler pot-filler from the Artifacts assortment. That is the primary time I’ve ever had a pot filler. Whereas at first I actually simply needed it for the seems, I’ve been shocked with how a lot I’ve used it — particularly since our sink is kinda from removed from the range.  

The kitchen cupboards are from Reform CPH, from their Foundation assortment. Reform CPH is a Danish firm that started off doing fronts for Ikea cupboards. However now, they create totally modular kitchens, and my goodness are they lovely. We’re fortunate that Reform CPH has a showroom right here in Los Angeles, so we acquired an opportunity to go try all of the kinds and supplies earlier than touchdown on the Foundation assortment. I really like the pure wooden — it provides a heat earthiness to the kitchen, however the clear strains are a pleasant juxtaposition to the weather within the kitchen which might be extra handmade and a bit wonkier, just like the vary hood and the tile. Additionally there are plenty of actually nice little design parts with hidden performance, like pull-out organizers, cutlery trays and waste sorting options constructed into the cabinetry.

We used a Crema Marfil Marble for the counters. And whereas I really like, love, love the colour and the look, everybody warned me ready marble counter tops and I didn’t pay attention. It does stain VERY simply and there are sure individuals in my family who should not thrilled about that. SO I feel if I might return in time, that’s one factor I’d do in another way. As a lot as I really like the cream coloration, I feel I’d return to Silestone.

I knew I needed this room to harness a ton of pure gentle, so we had two Velux Skylights put in a WOW!! Did they make a distinction!! I really like that I can lookup via them and see the Italian Cypress tree that’s in our entrance yard. They open up the area immensely and add recent air to this area too. Additionally, these skylights are sensible and shut routinely if it begins to rain — I imply…fairly superb expertise. They skylights additionally make it straightforward to maintain a lot of pleased crops in right here – which y’all know is necessary to me!

On this aspect of the kitchen, we now have our built-in microwave/convection oven (love that it has each features!), our GE Cafe fridge and plenty of area for meals storage within the Reform CPH cupboards.

Over right here we created a bit of espresso/tea bar that I actually love. We used the identical backsplash tile within the little alcove to tie it again to the wall behind the vary. It has been my dream to have a devoted spot for espresso and tea since I lived in Switzerland after I was a young person, so this space brings me plenty of pleasure. I additionally actually love our countertop espresso maker from GE Cafe. It’s so quick and simple and the espresso comes out good each time. We used further wooden from the Reform CPH cupboards on this aspect to create the open shelving. The cupboards are completely modular and the Reform CPH staff was nice at serving to us to create the proper configuration for our wants and needs. I really like the mix of open and hidden storage that we now have right here.


Eating Room

And that brings us to our eating room. On this room, we have been in a position to restore the unique hardwood flooring, and added that in-built bookshelf. I feel my favourite finds for this room are the “hen chairs” which have been a classic rating from Chairish.com.

Powder Room

We added a powder room the place there wasn’t one beforehand. In our final residence, to get to a restroom you needed to move via a bed room. The unique configuration of this residence had the identical factor happening, so I actually needed so as to add a powder room for company to make use of with out going via our bed room.  I discovered this classic dry sink earlier than we even had the floorplans accomplished for the rework, so should you’re questioning the way it matches so exactly in right here, we actually constructed the room to suit the dry sink! Ha! Our contractors minimize a gap within the marble for the sink, and we put in the beautiful Spun Glass Vessel Rest room Sink by Kohler in Translucent Dew and paired it with the Artifacts Faucet, additionally from Kohler. We then put in our Phoenix wallpaper in Jungle so as to add a little bit of luxe jungalicioussness to this area. The wallpaper is a complete vibe all by itself so I made a decision to maintain the extra equipment graphic and monochromatic. I went with an inlay mirror I discovered on Etsy.

The solar wall sconce was one other classic discover. The striped cup/vase is a part of our Kaya assortment at Jungalow.

Main Bed room

And that takes us into our bed room…

This can be my favourite room in the home (OK I really like all of the rooms…). However actually even earlier than we painted or did something in any respect this room was actually particular. I really like the mild slope within the ceiling, and the verdant views from the home windows — and the hearth (!!!)
The rug is from my Jamila Assortment with Loloi Rugs, the inexperienced quilt is our Sol quilt in sage from Jungalow.

We painted this room in a teal limewash from Sydney Harbor Paint Co. Our painter put the paint on the partitions with an enormous brush, as a substitute of a curler to get all of this water-like texture. At first, I used to be on the fence about portray the ceiling or leaving it white. Finally I’m pleased with the choice to color the entire room as a result of it simply form of envelops you and actually creates a complete feeling that’s so bizarre and funky and particular.  I actually, actually love waking up in right here.

The headboard and nightstands are classic. The pillow is Justina X Loloi. The palm tree lamps are from HK Dwelling.

Main Rest room

And that brings us to our main rest room. Ooof I really like this area a lot. I feel we tried out about 100 configurations for this room earlier than touchdown on this format. I used to be attempting to suit rather a lot in!  We mixed two small bogs to create this huge rest room and the powder room. We additionally removed the drop ceiling on this space of the home, and although it took endlessly to get the permits, it was nicely value it. It makes the sapce really feel twice as massive.

On this area, I actually needed a double bathtub, a stand-alone bathe, and a personal stall for the bathroom. The factor that I had to surrender was the double self-importance — as a result of every thing was merely not becoming. I’m pleased with our selections although. This area is actually my at-home spa and being in right here is enjoyable, stress-free and invigorating.

We made it this oddball form in order that there could be sufficient room to move via right here as a result of it’s fairly near the double tub. The mirror and wall lamps are from Badia Design, and the sink and faucet are from Kohler.

Sure, there’s a skylight within the bathe.
