The brief for the upgrade of this interwar Californian bungalow was to provide a retreat for a young family – sophisticated, liveable, relaxed. The kitchen was planned and executed to function as the heart of the family home. The client loves to cook and this laid the foundation to create a kitchen and butler’s pantry that cater to a family’s needs. An important part of the client’s brief was to have family friendly bathrooms with definitive details, custom finishes and fixtures. The beauty of the custom limestone checkerboard and cabochon floors is the subtle variation between the two types of limestone.
Designed by Phoebe Nicol, this home is about as serene and easy on the eye as it gets. It is elegant and refined yet inviting and has a sense of serenity. With all the light upholstered furniture they must have the most well behaved children on the planet 🙂 (Photos: Dave Wheeler. Styling: Joseph Gardner)
“A multi-generational family needed a refresh for their holiday home in Atherton, California. Last updated almost 30 years ago, the historic Tudor was renovated and furnished throughout to create a welcoming home for the owner’s adult children and young grandchildren. Respecting the architecture and the varying style preferences of the extended family, we blended traditional and modern styles seamlessly throughout the home. Spaces were reconfigured to reflect the needs of the younger generations – turning the home theater into a guest room, the formal living room into the media room, and the sunroom into the play room.”
Fun, fabulous and family-friendly it’s a refreshing take on modern living. Atherton Estate by Form + Field.

“The 1930’s Cape had undergone multiple renovations throughout the years by its previous visionary and eclectic owners. ERA chose to preserve and retain the layout and spirit of the house. Mechanicals were updated, all windows were replaced and the summer retreat was transformed into a year-round space for creativity and collaboration. A dilapidated entry volume was rebuilt and furnishings were chosen to enhance the open and airy environment. The palette of the architecture, including painted floors, wood clad columns, and fresh white baths, was combined with a mix of new and old furniture, melding different eras and materials to create a unique space that feels as though it is from no particular era.”
