Jungalow by the Mountain, Home Tour

This publish is incorporates gifted objects from Reform Cupboards, GE Cafe, Kohler, Velux Skylights and Zia Tile. Thanks for supporting our companions. 

Welcome to #JungalowByTheMountain! I’m excited to ask you into our dwelling immediately and take you a bit behind the scenes and share inspiration and sources into our new dwelling.

The Entryway

First up — the entryway to our dwelling. (Above and beneath).  I needed our entryway to really feel heat, inviting and pleased, so we painted it a mellow yellow (Farrow & Ball, Citron). I  wish to have welcoming symbols at our entryway so that you’ll discover palms waving hey and goodbye, angels, hearts, and lovebirds all gathering right here.

The classic console desk (c. 1980’s) was one of many first items I bought for the home. I discovered it on Chairish.com and I used to be drawn to its traces and chunk — additionally, the colour was completely pink and ended up informing the colours of the entire room.

The arched area of interest got here with the house (humorous as a result of in our final dwelling, we created a number of arched niches that look similar to this one). We had been impressed by our journey to Jaipur, India to color the area of interest yellow and so as to add the yellow stripe across the room.

Paint Colours:
Backside half: Farrow & Ball Ointment Pink
Higher half: Farrow & Ball Pink Floor
Yellow Stripe and in area of interest: Farrow & Ball Citron

I had been accumulating the little brass Moroccan mirrors for years and on a whim, determined to construct a gallery with them across the area of interest. Placing them up was enjoyable — I attempted to create a non-symmetrical/ symmetrical state of affairs. How did I do? 😛 You’ll find these mirrors on Etsy must you wish to replicate the look.

The Residing Room

Our front room is admittedly the center of our dwelling. One among my intentions for this dwelling was to entertain so much, so I actually needed an area the place folks may collect, play video games, dance, sing, and curl up by the hearth–however this room additionally wanted to operate nicely for me and my little household too — I needed it to be cozy for film nights, charades or studying an excellent e-book.  We added the bookcases that flank the hearth, in addition to the sunshine fixtures and the paint, however the remainder of the room stayed just about as we discovered it. The couch (which is likely one of the most lovely and most cozy sofas I’ve ever had, is the Paloma Couch in Maestro Loden Material by my buddies at Clad Residence.

The Lanai

Off the lounge is likely one of the most magical areas in the home, the lanai — which I actually needed to make really feel like an indoor backyard someplace within the Mediterranean. The factor that I’m most happy with on this house is the ground tile sample. The tile is one which I’ve cherished for years and years, a standard Moroccan sample that I received from Badia Design, a tremendous Moroccan import retailer in North Hollywood. We took a leap of religion and had the tile put in in a non-traditional, random sample, and it makes me pleased each single time I move over it. So, so wild.

The Kitchen

And into our kitchen!! After residing for nearly a complete yr with a makeshift kitchen arrange within the lanai — doing dishes in an out of doors sink and “cooking” with countertop home equipment– I don’t take this kitchen with no consideration! I’m obsessed! And I’m having fun with cooking like by no means earlier than.

The focus of our kitchen needs to be this space with the GE Cafe induction vary. We received the induction vary as a result of finally, we hope to have the entire dwelling working on photo voltaic with out the necessity for gasoline. (Additionally–aspect be aware — there’s an ordinance banning gasoline stoves from all new residential and industrial constructions to assist scale back dangerous greenhouse gases by 2023 in California, so we figured we’d as nicely get used to cooking on an induction stovetop.) And I’ve to say, to date I LOVE it. Water boils so shortly on this range, I can steam veggies or boil water for pasta in only a few minutes! Additionally, the stovetop itself doesn’t warmth up once we’re cooking–and since Ida is simply beginning to present curiosity in cooking, it makes me really feel extra relaxed letting her cook dinner scrambled eggs and issues understanding the stovetop gained’t burn her li’l fingers.

The double oven is a vibe. Final week I roasted brussel sprouts and asparagus up high whereas making salmon down beneath. Into it. I selected the white end for the vary in order that it will recall the white {custom} vary hood above it (extra particulars on that beneath) and we went with the Brushed Bronze end on the {hardware} and we’ve got a complete eclectic, mixed-metal factor occurring within the kitchen that I like. 

I designed the {custom} vary hood and had it constructed by our superior contractors, New Era Residence Enhancements. It’s manufactured from cement and we used the GE vary hood insert for the performance. The tile on the backsplash is Terra Rosa hex Zellige from Zia Tile . I like the colour variation within the Moroccan tile a lot. We tried to maintain grout traces minimal and used a darker grout that we needed to mix in to the tiles so the eye would stick with the tile, not the grout.

We additionally put in a Kohler pot-filler from the Artifacts assortment. That is the primary time I’ve ever had a pot filler. Whereas at first I actually simply needed it for the appears, I’ve been shocked with how a lot I’ve used it — particularly since our sink is kinda from removed from the range.  

The kitchen cupboards are from Reform CPH, from their Foundation assortment. Reform CPH is a Danish firm that started off doing fronts for Ikea cupboards. However now, they create totally modular kitchens, and my goodness are they lovely. We’re fortunate that Reform CPH has a showroom right here in Los Angeles, so we received an opportunity to go take a look at all of the types and supplies earlier than touchdown on the Foundation assortment. I like the pure wooden — it provides a heat earthiness to the kitchen, however the clear traces are a pleasant juxtaposition to the weather within the kitchen which might be extra handmade and a bit wonkier, just like the vary hood and the tile. Additionally there are quite a lot of actually nice little design parts with hidden performance, like pull-out organizers, cutlery trays and waste sorting options constructed into the cabinetry.

We used a Crema Marfil Marble for the counters. And whereas I like, love, love the colour and the look, everybody warned me in a position marble counter tops and I didn’t hear. It does stain VERY simply and there are sure folks in my family who are usually not thrilled about that. SO I feel if I may return in time, that’s one factor I might do otherwise. As a lot as I like the cream shade, I feel I’d return to Silestone.

I knew I needed this room to harness a ton of pure gentle, so we had two Velux Skylights put in a WOW!! Did they make a distinction!! I like that I can search for via them and see the Italian Cypress tree that’s in our entrance yard. They open up the house immensely and add recent air to this house too. Additionally, these skylights are sensible and shut routinely if it begins to rain — I imply…fairly wonderful expertise. They skylights additionally make it simple to maintain numerous pleased crops in right here – which y’all know is necessary to me!

On this aspect of the kitchen, we’ve got our built-in microwave/convection oven (love that it has each features!), our GE Cafe fridge and many house for meals storage within the Reform CPH cupboards.

Over right here we created a bit of espresso/tea bar that I actually love. We used the identical backsplash tile within the little alcove to tie it again to the wall behind the vary. It has been my dream to have a devoted spot for espresso and tea since I lived in Switzerland once I was a youngster, so this space brings me quite a lot of pleasure. I additionally actually love our countertop espresso maker from GE Cafe. It’s so quick and straightforward and the espresso comes out excellent each time. We used further wooden from the Reform CPH cupboards on this aspect to create the open shelving. The cupboards are completely modular and the Reform CPH group was nice at serving to us to create the proper configuration for our wants and desires. I like the mixture of open and hidden storage that we’ve got right here.

And that brings us to our eating room. On this room, we had been in a position to restore the unique hardwood flooring, and added that inbuilt bookshelf.

We added a powder room the place there wasn’t one beforehand. In our final dwelling, to get to a restroom you needed to move via a bed room. The unique configuration of this dwelling had the identical factor occurring, so I actually needed so as to add a powder room for friends to make use of with out going via our bed room.  I discovered this classic dry sink earlier than we even had the floorplans executed for the transform, so for those who’re questioning the way it matches so exactly in right here, we actually constructed the room to suit the dry sink! Ha! Our contractors reduce a gap within the marble for the sink, and we put in the beautiful Spun Glass Vessel Lavatory Sink by Kohler in Translucent Dew and paired it with the Artifacts Faucet, additionally from Kohler. We then put in our Phoenix wallpaper in Jungle so as to add a little bit of luxe jungalicioussness to this house. The wallpaper is a complete vibe all by itself so I made a decision to maintain the extra equipment graphic and monochromatic. I went with an inlay mirror I discovered on Etsy.

The solar wall sconce was one other classic discover. The striped cup/vase is a part of our Kaya assortment at Jungalow.

Major Bed room

And that takes us into our bed room…

This can be my favourite room in the home (OK I like all of the rooms…). However actually even earlier than we painted or did something in any respect this room was actually particular. I like the mild slope within the ceiling, and the verdant views from the home windows — and the hearth (!!!)
The rug is from my Jamila Assortment with Loloi Rugs, the inexperienced quilt is our Sol quilt in sage from Jungalow.

We painted this room in a teal limewash from Sydney Harbor Paint Co. Our painter put the paint on the partitions with a giant brush, as an alternative of a curler to get all of this water-like texture. At first, I used to be on the fence about portray the ceiling or leaving it white. Finally I’m pleased with the choice to color the entire room as a result of it simply form of envelops you and actually creates a complete feeling that’s so bizarre and funky and particular.  I actually, actually love waking up in right here.

Major Lavatory

And that brings us to our major toilet. Ooof I like this house a lot. I feel we tried out about 100 configurations for this room earlier than touchdown on this structure. I used to be making an attempt to suit so much in!  We mixed two small loos to create this huge toilet and the powder room. We additionally removed the drop ceiling on this space of the home, and although it took endlessly to get the permits, it was nicely value it. It makes the sapce really feel twice as massive.

On this house, I actually needed a double bathtub, a stand-alone bathe, and a non-public stall for the bathroom. The factor that I had to surrender was the double self-importance — as a result of every part was merely not becoming. I’m pleased with our decisions although. This house is actually my at-home spa and being in right here is enjoyable, enjoyable and invigorating.

The mirror and wall lamps are from Badia Design, and the sink and faucet are from Kohler.

Sure, there’s a skylight within the bathe. In our earlier dwelling we had an out of doors bathe and we love the texture, so we thought that including a Velux skylight within the bathe would give us the same feeling and it labored.
