From the exterior’s fireplace and pool to the interior’s full-height limestone mantle and custom hardwood cabinetry, elemental contrasts play inside and out. It’s a joining of water, air, earth, and fire – all working in harmony to create a meaningful home.
Largely influenced by this homeowners’ relationship with The Dalai Lama, this tranquil home serves as Zen retreat for this busy family with two young children.
Continuing the home’s Eastern influences, the limestone floors extend beyond the home, creating an outdoor living space centered around a Buddha fountain once owned by Sharon Stone.
The gold walls of the powder room seem to hold the custom cabinet—made from a table purchased while traveling in Tibet—like a jewel. Himalayan motifs and Calcutta marble continue the space’s subtle calming references.
