Bridging Worldly Aesthetics

Nestled in the Catalina Foothills, the Bridging Worldly Aesthetics residence was a full residential remodel that began in August 2013 and was completed in October 2014. The homeowners are avid world travelers and have visited over 43 counties. Throughout their excursions they have managed to collect many treasures and artifacts to remind them of the rich cultures they have visited. They desired their home to reflect the look and feel of a few of their favorite places. The challenge was to find a common design aesthetic to unify the varying themes. The solution was reached through finding common elements in color tones, pattern and simplicity of line. The tile, pain colors, and other hard surfaces have common mood that carries a continuous feel throughout the home. We loved that our client’s were open to creative and unique design elements such as adventurous tile combinations, use of wallpaper, and lighting solutions. One of the unique features in the home are columns from a palace built in India in 1919 that frame the entry of the home. In the guest bath we used a Japanese prayer table as a vanity cabinet. The feature that steals the show is an architectural suspended ceiling in the Asian inspired family room. It’s a custom faux iron installation that consists of seven panels and portrays a flowing dragon with a background of a geometric pattern and lotus flowers. This home has become much more than a house it truly is a work of art.
