ROCKWELL INTERIORS WAS HIRED FOR A FULL REMODEL OF THIS MIDCENTURY HOME ORIGINALLY DESIGNED BY ARCHITECT SIMS BRUCE RICHARDS IN THE 1950’S.
AND WHILE IT MAY HAVE BEEN COOL IN THE 50’S, IT WAS NOW OUTDATED AND VERY DARK INSIDE. THE HOUSE HAD GREAT BONES AND WE WANTED TO EXPAND ON THAT AND BRING IT CURRENT. WE REWORKED THE PLAN AND CREATED A NEW LAYOUT THAT OPENED UP THE ONCE ENCLOSED SMALLER KITCHEN TO THE MAIN LIVING AREA. IN ADDITION, WE INCREASED THE SIZE OF FOYER BY REMOVING A COAT CLOSET WHICH ALSO ALLOWED FOR A NEW SIDELIGHT TO INCREASE THE FLOW OF NATURAL LIGHT.
OFF THE NEW WHITE LACQUERED KITCHEN WITH DARK MARBLE ACCENTS, WE ADDED A CHIC BAR WITH BRONZE MIRRORED BACKSPLASH AND BRONZE GLASS SHELVES. MOVING TOWARDS THE LIVING ROOM, WE REPLACED ALL THE DOORS AND WINDOWS THROUGHOUT AND ADDED A ROW OF CLEARSTORY WINDOWS ABOVE THE NEW LARGER SIZED SLIDERS, AGAIN BRINGING IN MORE NATURAL LIGHT WHILE STILL STAYING TRUE TO THE ORIGINAL ARCHITECTURE.
SPEAKING OF STAYING TRUE TO THE ORIGINAL ARCHITECTURE, ONE OF SIM’S SIGNATURE DESIGN DETAILS WAS TO DESIGN AND HAVE MADE A COPPER HOOD ON ALL OF HIS FIREPLACES. WE FOUND THAT TO BE VERY COOL, SO WHEN WE DESIGNED TO NEW FIREPLACE, WE MADE SURE TO INCORPORATE THAT ORIGINAL HOOD WITHIN THE NEW DESIGN.
HARD TO BELIEVE THIS ULTRA-SWANKY LOUNGE USED TO BE A GARAGE! WE DESIGNED THE WALNUT TV MEDIA WALNUT AND HAD IT CUSTOM MADE TO FIT THE ROOM PERFECTLY. THE WALL UNIT IS BACKED BY A FUN KELLY WEARSTLER WALLCOVERING WHICH ADDS A FUNKY FLAVOR TO THE SPACE. WE TOOK 6 BRONZE MIRRORED CUBE SIDE TABLES AND PUT THEM TOGETHER TO CREATE A UNIQUE COFFEE TABLE, THAT SIT IN FRONT OF THE LEATHER TUFTED SOFA, ANCHORED BY 2 MID-CENTURY LOUNGE CHAIRS.
WE PAINTED THE REST OF THE ROOM IN A MOODY WARM GREY AND ADDED BRASS LIGHT FIXTURES TO ADD WARMTH AND SHINE, USING THE LIGHT TO HIGHLIGHT THE ACCESSORIZED BOOKCASES AND ARTWORK. THIS SWANKY ROOM IS READY TO ENTERTAIN!
ON THE LEFT IS THE NEWLY REMODELED POWDER BATH ADORNED IN WHITE, BLACK + BRASS. WE KEPT IT SIMPLE AND CLEAN AS THE SPACE IS SMALL, BUT STILL DELIVERED SOME PERSONALITY WITH THE STYLIZED WALL MIRROR, HANGING PENDANT LIGHT AND BLACK PLUMBING FIXTURES. THE IMAGE ON THE RIGHT SHOWS THE UPDATED HALLWAY IN WHICH USED TO BE COVERED IN HEAD TO TOE DARK WOOD PANELING WITH GREEN CARPET AS THE FLOORING. WE EXCHANGED THE DARK WOOD FOR FRESHLY PAINTED WHITE WALLS, THE CARPET CHANGED TO BEAUTIFUL WOOD, AND WE CLEANED UP THE OLD SKYLIGHTS TO LOOK MORE MODERN AND ADDED SOME FUN HINGED ARM WALL SCONCES TO ADD PERSONALITY AS WELL AS A FUNCTIONAL DOWNLIGHT.
