for the past couple of interior envy post i’ve shared several awesome spaces within new york city. today, we leave the east coast and travel over to the west coast.. brentwood, california to be exact. this welcoming horse ranch with its romantic blend of contemporary and mediterranean architectural sensibilities was built by whipple russell architects. the house was originally built for a creative couple; one an architect turned director the other a writer and sommelier. while the husband wanted a contemporary feel the wife longed for romantic. i’m loving the contemporary feel you get from the architecture while the decor has a romantic vibe to it. this is the type of house that would make a city girl like me ditch the skyscrapers for acres of land and peace of quiet. my favorite area of this whole house is probably the backyard. i mean seriously. isn’t it gorgeous?!
