A 1940s ranch house was given a vivacious transformation and addition for a family of five by Jamie Bush & Co., located in the affluent neighborhood of Brentwood, California. The designer infused warmth into the 4,000 square foot home with a minimalist, mid-century aesthetic. Updates made to home included adding a screening room, a new flat roof, glass curtain walls and concrete flooring, which was warmed up with shaggy area rugs. Originally there was a wall separating the living and dining room areas, this was removed so that spaces would be more open and livable. A neutral color palette was used as a base while incorporating bright bursts of color such as teal and yellow to create visual stimulation for the homeowner’s three children. Organic furnishings and accents of wood were added to ground the spaces and create a nice balance of kid/adult friendly living. In the image above, a double sided fireplace provides a nice focal point to both the living and family rooms, while at the some time creating a visual separation of space.
