A New Build Boasting Rich Tones & Natural Elements
TO CONTRAST, YET COMPLEMENT, THE SLEEK MODERNITY OF A LOS ANGELES COUPLE'S NEW HOME, CANTONI DESIGNER RICHARD BUSTOS AIMS FOR A WEALTH OF WARMTH AND COMFORT WITH RICH TONES AND NEUTRAL ELEMENTS.
The spacious entryway greets you with the sleek and geometric design of the Uptown console table and offers a welcoming view of the main living area, which is decked out in soft grays, found in the custom Lovely Day sofa and Arena Bond cocktail table. Subtle pops of color make their way into the mix with matching Soor swivel chairs and throw pillows on the sofa, all swathed in delicate seafoam green. To offset the cool design of the main living space, the family room showcases creamy and rich leathers, found in the custom Mondrian sectional and Margot chairs in honey leather from Gamma. Organic woods elevate the soft and inviting design by way of the striking and the Atlantic cocktail table and the Link entertainment unit.
The kitchen and dining room continues with the theme of open space and light, airy design with a distinctive edge. Arno adjustable bar stools line the sleek waterfall bar in the kitchen, lending warmth and sophistication to the streamlined design, while the dining room takes on a dramatic, yet subdued edge with a custom Eliot wood dining table and dark Arcadia high back chairs, both Cattelan Italia. The backyard sprawls out beyond the dining and family room, continuing the sense of conviviality with an outdoor grilling and dining area, complete with a glittering pool. An Oceanside sofa sits center stage, accompanied by twin Oceanside lounge chairs, which pair nicely with the Ventura arm chairs that surround the Sicilia rectangular dining table.
The master bedroom exceeds itself with rich tones and inviting warmth, creating an intimate space that recalls tranquility and unity. Richard selected a custom king bed in supple cognac leather as the centerpiece of the room, with nightstands and a bench to match. A trio of Hawaii wall mirrors were chosen to break up the crisp lines of the space and take pride above a custom Pianca vanity. On the enclosed balcony, a Moon daybed perches, overlooking lush green trees – perfect for relaxing on a Sunday morning or cool evening. In the two guest bedrooms, Richard opts for refined elegance with the Cato queen bed and Lomenti queen bed, both swathed in a creamy color palette.
“I loved that Cantoni had so many connections to different Italian furniture companies that we could look through to find the perfect piece,” said Siwon. “Richard was so sweet and helpful throughout the entire design process and in guiding me through the stressful yet fulfilling endeavor of furnishing our entire brand-new home!”
