Just the AFTER // Client Black Houses are the Best Houses

March 13, 2018

YAY!! It’s finally here IT’S FINALLY HERE!!!!!

This project was a long one and a good one if you ask me

We were first contacted in 2015 to help these clients build this house from the ground up. They had some preliminary designs from the architect and wanted to create a “Scandinavian Modern Cabin” vibe…despite being smack in the middle of Venice California. We were lucky enough to work with an awesome Contractor ( Potter Mallis ) as well as work with some pretty cool clients. They had a good idea of how they wanted the house to look, and were majorly flexible with a massive amount of layout changes …like flipping the kitchen to a completely new location!! Anyways, this was a super fun project, and way more modern than anything we had done at the time. Of course now we have quite a few Modern design projects going on, but this was an awesome way to flex our “Scandi Modern design Muscles” for the very first time!

OK scroll on down and let me know what you think in the comments!!

  1. What an inspiration! I’ve been thinking of using white vertical paneling in some areas and would also like to do cabinets with a subtle cerused oak in our remodel. Which oak species did you use on the kitchen cabinetry? I love the subtle grain (mostly rift looking with a little bit of quarter sawn action) and want to attain that for myself… Thank you!

  2. absolutely love this house and all that you’ve done. Can you give me any information on the powder room navy tile. I need it
