architect George Boyle to create a modern look with bright surfaces that would bounce light throughout, and a relatively open floor plan that would accommodate not only their home but also an ample work space for Renee who runs two businesses from home. The couple sought to create an uncluttered space with clean lines.

The kitchen cabinets are finished with a brown automotive enamel that is both reflective and smart-looking and the guest bath was fitted with floor to ceiling black acrylic which proved to be a great budget-friendly substitute for the smoked glass originally in their plan. The Philippe Starck cantilevered toilet makes the room look bigger and is easy to clean around. A translucent panel separates the bedroom from the living area, creating the impression of additional windows and a more open space.

Their clean space provides a neutral palette for their furniture collection, which includes a custom California walnut table that doubles as a dining table and conference table, chairs from the Pace Collection, a Kagan sofa and a Lichtenstein original edition rug. Many pieces where bought from estate sales / auctions which CJ loves to take advantage of (including a set of Poltrona Frau chairs which were formerly Mark Dreier’s conference chairs). Other features include ceramic Italian tile from Stone Source (easy to clean and was a mid-priced alternative to marble) and a number of elements to maximize the utility for the office space: a large flat-screen tv suspended from a wall-mounted arm that can swing toward the conference table, built-in desks along the walls to provide work stations for employees and wiring for computers and equipment throughout.
