Start with the beautiful ideas and architectural design of the talented, LA based designer, Windsor Smith, add surfaces provided by top notch companies like Exquisite Surfaces (the flooring in this home is the best), throw in amazing interior design by the best in the business like Windsor Smith, Richard Shapiro, Candace Barnes, Peter Dunham, Kathryn Ireland, and Martyn Lawrence Bullard to name a few, and you end with the most livable yet chic modern family home, THE HOUSE OF WINDSOR.
This exceptional concept house, in Brentwood, CA, is open to the public through July 17th. I had the pleasure of being part of a guided tour with Veranda Magazine’s Features Editor, Linda Sherbert. Look for Linda’s coverage of the House in the upcoming October issue of VERANDA MAGAZINE!
One of my favorite spaces in the house was the Family Room designed by Windsor Smith. I trust beautiful images of this space will be included in the October Issue. I can’t wait. You have to see the wall of book shelves filled so artfully with the best “STUFF”.
Candace Barnes gave the Mater Suite her magic touch.I did not want to leave the dressing room area (No walk-in closets in this home. Just beautiful and functional built-ins everywhere.)
The Great Room designed by Richard Shapiro and the Dining/Library by Richard Hallberg of Dennis and Lean/Formations were both inspirational spaces filled with the most amazing objects and furnishings.
The Kitchen! The Kitchen! When we entered the space people in our group commented out loud. It was as if they could not contain their joy. People love Kitchens and this one is gorgeous.Linda Sherbert admitted it was one of the best she has seen in her career at Vernada. It was an amazingly open, light, and unique space. One that will function perfectly for a family’s daily needs as well as the parties sure to be held in this incredible home.
