Jennifer Dyer of Jeneration Interiors, had the awesome opportunity of working with an Internet entrepreneur and avid cyclist, who happened to be pedaling past an in-progress house on a pretty, rural-feeling road in Los Angeles. It was a moment when, he simply knew, this “in-progress” home, would be his family’s home. At the time, he and his wife had a toddler and a baby on the way….It was time to upsize. They moved from a 3,000-square foot condo to a “much larger house”, says designer Jennifer Dyer. “The only things they took with them were a sectional sofa, a dining table, an ottoman and eight chairs.”
Luckily, they were starting with an open and inviting floor plan, beautiful finishes and great bones. “Everything was custom-milled,” according to design principal, Sheryl Schey, who handled the home’s design-build along with business principal David Carlin. Throughout the five-bedroom house, Schey worked with beautiful hand-milled moldings, hand distressed hickory floors and wood ceiling beams and then added eclectic touches such as barn doors in the dining room. “It’s a casual approach to traditional design”, says Carlin.
In the dining room, the designer created a livable yet sophisticated interior to compliment the traditional style of the house. In the dining room, an Ironies light fixture hangs above the owners’ table. The rug is from Patterson, Flynn & Martin.
In the guest bedroom, the designer kept the palette soft. Behind the bed, a patterned Phillip Jeffries wallcovering lends a graphic interest.
The bright and airy kitchen features maple cabinetry with Shaker-style, flush mounted doors.
Calcutta marble floors and a mother-of-pearl wallcovering by Maya Romanoff gives the master bathroom a luxurious touch. A custom-made ottoman, upholstered with a Bergamo linen and shades made from Lulu DK fabric.
In the Master Bedroom, the designer upholstered a custom bed with a Pollack fabric, and the sofa is covered with a textile from Kravet. Draperies made with Donghia fabric complement the Ulf Moritz wallpaper, and the wool-and-silk rug made by Patterson, Flynn & Martin.
For the husband’s office, Dyer designed a sofa and had it upholstered with a textile from Michael Jon Designs. She chose a bold Lee Jofa stripe to accent a long bolster and hung sconces from The Urban Electric Co. The coffee tables were custom-made for the space.
Kudos to Jeneration Interiors…..An Awesome Job!!
