In this midcentury home, Jamie Bush and architect William Hefner’s unconventional design brings the unexpected.
In this Home where the client says clearly to avoid the vogue trend and the “Fifty shades of beige”. She states strongly, “I didn’t want a house that looks like everyone else’s. I wasn’t looking for a hip midcentury home in the Hollywood Hills with perfectly elegant interiors.”
In this Los Angeles midcentury home we will see the very different room which Jamie Bush and architect William Hefner’s put the wishes of the client and turned them into reality. This dazzling midcentury home, where an eclectic and eccentric design exists and makes each space unique and fun.
This midcentury home style embraces the odd and unusual, know as eccentric design. It’s important to remember that this is not a design for the fearful, so consider decorating your home with humor and playfulness. This article’s photographs will show the numerous rooms in this unconventional style – eccentric design– applied.
The eccentric design of the living room is demonstrated by the various interior pieces in the image up top. The plants that give the space a fresher feel, the pink-hued sofas and armchairs, the gold accents in some of the details, and the rug that links it all together. This midcentury home is a stunning project that was expertly constructed because to the surprising color choices and contrast that it has.
The eccentric design in the 30-by-36-foot living room is decorated in pink and peach tones, while the kitchen and dining area are celadon and forest green, the main bedroom is ice blue, and the fully remodeled poolhouse is brilliant yellow. The three young daughters’ bedrooms, as well as the bunk room they share for overnight stays at the house, are covered in various hues of the same cheery tulip-patterned fabric and wallpaper.
The facade of the midcentury home, the foyer with a center table and distinct escultures, and even the big chandelier and piano chamber that appear to be emanating from above the ceiling are all shown in the photos above. Inside it, the eccentric design is explored.
When they worked on this incredible midcentury home, they looked for all kinds of references. In a blockbuster depiction of Los Angeles swank, Kitchen has combined elements of nostalgia and modernity, humor and seduction, and high culture and low culture. With its circular skylights, color-blocked rooms, and pink-tinged indoor-outdoor terrazzo floors, the house is a bold pasticcio of Hollywood Regency, Art Deco, Palm Springs camp, tropical contemporary, granny chic, and a sprinkle of Morris Lapidus-style Miami Beach cha-cha.
The kitchen and dining room,in this midcentury home, are two separate areas adjacent to one another, are shown in the photographs above. The diverse shades of blue combined with the other primary colors gave the space a more elegant stylish appearance. However it still feels like a cozy space to be dining in. The presence of the eccentric design is apparent in this midcentury home ‘s interiors.
Each room has a distinct color scheme, and occasionally it seems neither the designer nor the client is concerned about whether certain objects’ colors complement one another. They think it’s a sign of modern taste, similar to the notion that choosing a painting because it matches a sofa’s color is somehow vulgar. So they made a distinct style choice that incorporates all the various times, shapes, and colors working together – the eccentric design.
As the architecture explain when putting in to view the eccentric design along with Jamie Bush, the client didn’t really feel that satisfied with the house and its architecture, so he tried to give the house a really exceptional period of architecture. So he flattened the pitched roof, adding sharp contemporary eaves and corner windows, and covering the previously stucco exterior in white-painted reclaimed brick—the same material he used for outdoor screens, planters, and brise-soleils—as well as a few key interior walls—completely changed the character of the building. The architect explains, “It has the correct atmosphere and seems familiar, but it’s not an exact replica of one particular yet eccentric design.”
The midcentury home is distinctive and has individuality due to the contrast between the white façade and the variety of colors painted and used inside. Just like a precious stone, where the value is found inside. Every unique item that decorates this space are things from far-flung periods and places.
Bush adorned his various ensembles with both modest midcentury materials like Formica, linoleum, cork, and vinyl as well as old-fashioned finery like Sherle Wagner marble toilets and gilt-finished fixtures, accent walls of smoky beveled mirror, Dorothy Draper cut velvets, and bullion-fringed pool umbrellas.
A carpet or rug is utilized in each of these rooms. Actually, the eccentric design of this midcentury home uses carpet or rugs to make the space appear a little warmer than it is. In this examples above was used almost the same shapes and color.
With the five images up there, we can see the various bedroom hues and patterns. The white fluffy carpeting appears to be bigger in the kids’ rooms, and the floral pattern has a more vivid color scheme. A portrait of three people and what appears to be a flowering chandelier can be found in the dining area.
Although if the floors are all the same in the photographs above, we can notice the various colors utilized in the bathrooms inside the home. The one in the middle is the most striking since it appears to be nicer and fresher than the others because of the large windows that allow you to glimpse the outside vegetation.
The client’s request for a unique and somewhat whimsical home that she would like to live in was taken into consideration by the designer and architect as they worked to capture the perspective that would be most appropriate for the home. “I simply enjoy that it seems fun to me,” she says as she wraps up. “In the end of the day, what’s the point if you don’t have a sense of humor?”
This midcentury modern home is distinctive due to the eccentric style that Amy Bush and architect William Hefner so skillfully incorporated. As previously stated, this project is not for those who lack courage, as it was made to be such by combining a wide range of objects with a lot of color and pattern.
