Jungalow by the Mountain, Home Tour

This publish is accommodates 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 house as we speak and take you a bit behind the scenes and share inspiration and assets into our new house.

The Entryway

First up — the entryway to our house. (Above and under).  I wished our entryway to really feel heat, inviting and completely happy, so we painted it a mellow yellow (Farrow & Ball, Citron). I  wish to have welcoming symbols at our entryway so that you’ll discover fingers waving hi there 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 house, we created a number of arched niches that look identical 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 amassing 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 scenario. How did I do? 😛 Yow will discover these mirrors on Etsy must you need to replicate the look.

The Residing Room

Our lounge is basically the center of our house. One in every of my intentions for this house was to entertain lots, so I actually wished an area the place folks may collect, play video games, dance, sing, and curl up by the fireside–however this room additionally wanted to operate nicely for me and my little household too — I wished it to be cozy for film nights, charades or studying a very good ebook.  We added the bookcases that flank the fireside, 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 without doubt one of the most stunning and most comfortable 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 without doubt one of the most magical areas in the home, the lanai — which I actually wished to make really feel like an indoor backyard someplace within the Mediterranean. The factor that I’m most pleased with on this house is the ground tile sample. The tile is one which I’ve beloved for years and years, a standard Moroccan sample that I obtained from Badia Design, an incredible 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 completely happy each single time I cross over it. So, so wild.

The Kitchen

And into our kitchen!! After residing for nearly a whole yr with a makeshift kitchen arrange within the lanai — doing dishes in an outside 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 must be this space with the GE Cafe induction vary. We obtained the induction vary as a result of finally, we hope to have the entire house working on photo voltaic with out the necessity for fuel. (Additionally–aspect be aware — there may be an ordinance banning fuel stoves from all new residential and business constructions to assist cut back dangerous greenhouse gases by 2023 in California, so we figured we would as nicely get used to cooking on an induction stovetop.) And I’ve to say, to this point I LOVE it. Water boils so shortly on this range, I can steam veggies or boil water for pasta in just some minutes! Additionally, the stovetop itself doesn’t warmth up after 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 realizing the stovetop gained’t burn her li’l fingers.

The double oven is a vibe. Final week I roasted brussel sprouts and asparagus up prime whereas making salmon down under. Into it. I selected the white end for the vary in order that it might recall the white {custom} vary hood above it (extra particulars on that under) and we went with the Brushed Bronze end on the {hardware} and we’ve a complete eclectic, mixed-metal factor happening 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 product of 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 wished 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 wished it for the appears, I’ve been stunned 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 absolutely modular kitchens, and my goodness are they stunning. We’re fortunate that Reform CPH has a showroom right here in Los Angeles, so we obtained an opportunity to go try 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 can be extra handmade and a bit wonkier, just like the vary hood and the tile. Additionally there are a variety of actually nice little design components 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 ready marble counter tops and I didn’t hear. It does stain VERY simply and there are sure folks in my family who should not thrilled about that. SO I believe if I may return in time, that’s one factor I might do in another way. As a lot as I like the cream coloration, I believe I’d return to Silestone.

I knew I wished this room to harness a ton of pure mild, 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 robotically if it begins to rain — I imply…fairly superb know-how. They skylights additionally make it straightforward to maintain a number of completely happy vegetation in right here – which y’all know is necessary to me!

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

Over right here we created somewhat 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 after I was a young person, so this space brings me a variety of pleasure. I additionally actually love our countertop espresso maker from GE Cafe. It’s so quick and simple and the espresso comes out good each time. We used additional wooden from the Reform CPH cupboards on this aspect to create the open shelving. The cupboards are completely modular and the Reform CPH workforce was nice at serving to us to create the right configuration for our wants and desires. I like the mixture of open and hidden storage that we’ve right here.


Eating Room

And that brings us to our eating room. On this room, we had been capable of restore the unique hardwood flooring, and added that in-built bookshelf. I believe my favourite finds for this room are the “hen chairs” which had been a classic rating from Chairish.com.

Powder Room

We added a powder room the place there wasn’t one beforehand. In our final house, to get to a restroom you needed to cross via a bed room. The unique configuration of this house had the identical factor happening, so I actually wished 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 performed for the rework, so in case you’re questioning the way it suits so exactly in right here, we actually constructed the room to suit the dry sink! Ha! Our contractors lower 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.

Main 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 light slope within the ceiling, and the verdant views from the home windows — and the fireside (!!!)
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 a substitute 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. In the end I’m pleased with the choice to color the entire room as a result of it simply kind 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.

I used to be attempting to suit lots in!  We mixed two small bogs to create this huge rest room and the powder room. We additionally removed the drop ceiling on this space of the home, and although it took eternally to get the permits, it was nicely value it. It makes the sapce really feel twice as massive.

On this house, I actually wished 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 vainness — as a result of all the pieces 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.

We made it this oddball form in order that there could be sufficient room to cross via right here as a result of it’s fairly near the double tub. 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 house we had an outside bathe and we love the texture, so we thought that including a Velux skylight within the bathe would give us an analogous feeling and it labored. I like wanting up on the sky after I’m showering — and it additionally helps with air flow.
