geometric meets organic

Interior mood no.2

"Hidden in a wooded valley at the foot of the Verdugo Mountains, the redwood, concrete & glass residence opens to the oak forest that influenced the form and orientation of the design."

This is a quote from the estate agent of the famous Schaffer Residence which appeared in Tom Ford's film A Single Man. This is pretty much exactly where I want to live right now. It would be all about mixing Negronis from my own mini bar, wearing the Dress Up choker dress, and reclining in a beautiful timber and exposed brick living room. To complete the setting; fresh flowers, scented candles and a new coffee table favourite, The Travel Almanac. 

The house was built in 1949 by architect John Lautner whose style is a perfect mix of geometric and organic. His work concentrated mostly on the integration of the home with its surroundings and the relationship between people, space and nature.
