I’m really drawn to Matt Jacobson’s home in Southern California as seen in Dwell Magazine for so many reasons and the size is one of them. This is a beautifully done space that seems to have just what the owner needs and not much more. A nice change from all those massive houses that seem so out of reach and so unnecessary. Designed by Michael Lee Architects.
Some of my other favourite elements include:
- The landscaping- I love the floating Ipe and steel bench, the mix of stone and gravel, the choice of green.
- Sliding door in the kitchen (we used this sort of detail in our home as well!).
- The wood detail on the living room furniture blends perfectly in the space. I believe it was designed by James Perse…or the store at least provided inspiration.
- The wide plank wood floors
