Scandinavian-Inspired House in Los Angeles by DU Architects
A bright Californian home with a dark modern exterior has recently been put on the market in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Venice. Designed by DU Architects, the home combines modern California vibes with touches of Scandinavian design.
A black stained wood fence surrounds the front of the property with bold pops of red welcoming you as you approach the home. Once inside the door of the gate, a small raised patio area sits with bits of greenery adding a natural element to the space. A narrow wall of tiles in different finishes adds texture and a unique design element to the front of the house, helping it stand out even more.
The entrance to the home opens into the spacious and airy living room. Custom built-in white oak cabinetry and bench line one wall to add seating and storage to the space, while planked pine ceilings stretch out overhead. Radiant heating under the polished concrete floors warm up the room and give the space a loft-like feel.
In the gourmet kitchen and dining area you’ll find more wood detailing, including the cabinetry, four floating shelves, and an oversized butcher block that doubles as a breakfast bar. The kitchen has also been designed for both functionality and entertaining, with a full pantry and wine storage right within reach. Large windows, overhead lighting, white walls and white countertops keep the kitchen feeling clean, bright, and airy.
