Flip Flop House: White, White Everywhere!

I think that I make a comment on every post about how exciting the particular process is….but seriously, this is sooooo exciting!!  The Flip Flop House looks like a house!  A big, white, beautiful home on the beach!

We can’t wait to show you the totally finished terrazzo stair case, and those beautifully wrapped stainless steel columns beyond!

Check out last weeks post for some good info on the staircase:

In this hallway, to the left we have the spinning walls that will hold the owner’s artwork.  To the right are the sliding doors that open onto the upstairs atrium that provides beautiful light and air to the office and master bathroom:

The gorgeous flush interior doors:

This is the client’s office.  This is a great room because it has the wonderful light coming in from the atrium, a view of the rotating walls (which, when they are open, you will be able to see the ocean from this room), and some really really nice wooden shelving.

This is the kitchen area (while standing in the dining room).  All the kitchen cabinetry will go on the right wall underneath the clerestory windows.  A kitchen island made out of Caesarstone will be placed in the middle of the area:

Here, they are bringing the bathroom ceramic tile slabs up to the master shower (verrrrry carefully…)

We chose a ceramic tile product called Kalesinterflex.  It is really beautiful in these large pieces.  It is incredibly smooth and looks seamless!  (Can you tell that’s our style? :)

More finishes to come!  Have a fantastic Monday!

Flip Flop House: Finishes Have Begun!

Well well well….we are back, and a lot has happened to the Flip Flop House since we have last reported on it.

The house is totally coming together, and we are nearing the finish line (no pun intended :) .   We have gotten to the “finishes” phase – which is oh so awesome, because it is looking less like a construction site, and more like a home!  It truly is looking fantastic – we couldn’t be happier.

There are several layers to a finished exterior stucco (check out our detailed stucco description on one of the Encino Renovation posts).  Here is the brown coat on the south side of the house:

And the white finish on the north side:

The lower portion of the staircase glass railing has been installed.  It is so great to see that is turned out perfectly because during the design process, we seriously had to channel our inner geometry-student:

Those little metal guys that hold the glass are called “stand-offs”.

We had them custom designed for this staircase by Accurate Manufactured Products Group – they are really beautiful and clean pieces:

We are loving the way the natural light from the skylight filters down through the stairwell!

Here is one of the bathrooms with Caesarstone around the tub:

The master bathroom:

Someone had to try out this beautiful tub, so Dan took his shoes off and hopped in.  He said it was “sooooooo comfortable!”

The office looks out onto an interior garden patio that is open to the sky above.  This room also receives a lot of beautiful natural light!

The interior recessed lights are trimless, and gorgeous!  They did an incredible job installing them!

And per usual, we end the post with our favorite spot in the house….the main skylight above the stairwell:

We are loving the way the light is laying on these pristine white walls!!

Encino Renovation: Finished Product Sneak Peek!

Back in the summer and fall, you may remember that we were working on a renovation in Encino.  Well, we will be posting all of the photos of the finished project soon, but we had to show you just one now!  I must say, it looks awesome!!  I suggest taking a look at what the entire home looked like before we go our design hands into it.

Here is what the living room looked like before:

And here it is now:

Hard to tell that its the same room, right?  We are excited to show you the other parts of the house!
