Minimal in Southern California

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
