1525 Blue Jay is a fascinating, contemporary residence designed byLori Dennis, one of the nation’s top interior design companies. You might already know the location from other posts about the extraordinary residences of exclusive Blue Jay Way in California, like the Blue Jay Way Residence or the 1654 Blue Jay Way house. A sun-flooded kitchen displays natural grey stone and white washed oak and cabinets, warm-grey recycled content quartz counters and efficient appliances. Natural air flow is encouraged throughout the house. Exotic wood finishes adorn the interiors and the bar, closets, vanities and cabinets are all made from eco friendly materials. Special features are the indoor-outdoor pool and jacuzzi on the panoramic side of the residence, 13 feet high windows and a 360 degree roof deck. “The floor to ceiling windows and open floor plan in the Blue Jay home allow natural daylight and airflow virtually everywhere in the residence. In addition to being beautiful the limestone 4×4 slab flooring throughout the interior and exterior of the residence acts as a heat sink, absorbing solar energy during the day and releasing it in our cold desert nights. The master bath and master patio have radiant heating, which is highly effective and is the most luxurious way to heat a body.” Do you love it as much as we do?
The terms ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ are often used interchangeably when describing design. It’s a common faux pas and one of which this writer is certainly guilty. In design lexicon the two words have contrasting and quite distinct meanings. Describing their difference at a somewhat rudimentary level: contemporary makes reference to the present-day – that which is current and of the time – whereas modern alludes to the past, specifically that of Modernism (post the First World War) and mid-20th century modern design and architecture.
Emerald is a color that has consistently topped trend charts in recent times and its jewel-toned glamor is perfect for bedrooms with Hollywood Regency style. Malachite pattern and color is also a smart choice if you love that luxurious look in the bedroom while eclectic bedrooms drenched in green goodness steal the show with sheer audacity and flair.
