A Serene, “Well-Balanced” House for a Violinist and a Physician, Inspired by Vivaldi
In the first times of January, photographer (and longtime Remodelista friend) Laure Joliet emailed us a task she’d captured on a hilltop in the town of Palos Verdes Estates, California. The visuals confirmed interiors that felt balanced, classy, and by some means melodic, if a room could be explained that way—a feeling that became crystal clear when I emailed with the designer guiding it, Beatriz Rose of LA-based mostly Byrdesign.
The challenge is “a effectively-balanced property for a dynamic pair,” Beatriz writes. “Much of the inspiration came from their incredibly being, as from the onset I sensed a robust artistic power driving their delicate demeanor.” The clientele are a California-centered pair: “Kevin Kumar, the cofounder and inventive director of Salastina audio society (a amazing group devoted to producing classical tunes approachable and relevant), is an exceptionally proficient and passionate violinist who has appeared as a soloist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and other renowned orchestras about the entire world,” Beatriz states. “Kevin’s other half is one of our courageous doctors on the frontline supporting COVID people fight this health crisis.”
So it was fitting that, when embarking on the job, Beatriz looked to songs for its creativity, natural beauty, and ability to continual, encourage, and soothe. In unique, a “stellar general performance of Vivaldi’s ‘La Follia’ aided me articulate the emotion for the residence,” Beatriz states. “It was an previous soul and a hidden classical beast with a bold and modern intellect.” And, she factors out, “The layout procedure was like conducting a sequence of areas with considerate neatness, continuity, objective, and factors of shock.”
In counterpoint to—or, relatively, in harmony with—these musical underpinnings, Beatriz also took inspiration from the health practitioner of the pair: “She was the voice of modernity and practicality in the undertaking,” she claims. “Her refined, rustic sensibility is mirrored in the pure and organic materials chosen, exactly where delicate textures incorporate a tactile warmth and bucolic appeal to if not a contemporary and minimalist room.”
Join us for a look at the living spaces, kitchen, and—of course—music place.
