This unassuming classic ranch style house located amongst a mature stand of redwoods got a facelift with new cedar siding and a new front door. On the inside a clean and neutral white was chosen as a wall color throughout to counteract the shady location, the heaviness of the existing, beautifully worn ceramic tile floor and the very dominant rustic fireplace. The colors of the furnishings and fabrics are informal and playful, with a magnificent centerpiece – a console hand painted for the 1956 Biennale.
