In my last post, I shared a bit about a recent beach house renovation for NBA legend Phil Jackson. The project was an incredible experience all-around, and it brought a new colleague and dear friend into my life. If you missed it, check out the full text here.
The Playa beach house also highlighted an important truth in a whole new way: expert interior design matters.
This is clearer now than ever before. We’ve spent nearly 24 hours a day in our homes over the past 6 months, and that doesn’t look to change anytime soon. When our homes are suddenly forced to serve as our schools, offices, gyms, and restaurants, there’s nowhere for design flaws to hide. If your home isn’t truly set up to serve you and your lifestyle, it brings stress and chaos.
That’s why skilled designers go beyond mere decoration, maximizing every aspect of a home to best serve its inhabitants.
In this project, we thoughtfully considered each detail, from the progression of natural light through the space to the owner’s Zen Buddhist lifestyle and love of cooking. We customized the cabinetry and fixtures to accommodate his 6-foot-8-inch frame and selected finishes for adults and rowdy grandkids alike.
But the main goal of this beach house renovation was to highlight the spectacular panoramic views. Every material we chose was inspired by the colors, textures, and movement of the beach and the ocean outside.
In the end, each of these details add up to more than just a beautiful house. They create a true sanctuary. One that tells the story of the homeowner and his life. A home that’s spiritual, soothing, and enriches the experience of anyone who enters. And that, my friends, is why great interior design is so important.
