This bedroom was part of a recent full house remodel in Rockridge. I finally had a chance to publish a few photos. Due to the multicolor light, the colors are not perfect in these photos, but hopefully you can get the idea.  Photos are by Nancy Kalter-Dills.

This one shows the pair of colorful stained glass casement windows – A collaboration with Sabina Frank of Berkeley. It also shows the steel bed designed by myself to go with the windows and fabricated by Frank Trousil in Richmond.  Lights are from Metro Lighting in Berkeley and the flooring is ash.

The next few show the custom closet system fabricated by Martin Lee in Oakland.  My favorite part is the picture frames built into the doors. This gives the owner the opportunity to personalize the doors that they look at from the bed every day.

Hard to see in this photo, but Martin created crafty little wooden levers to hold in the picture and the glass on the inside of the door.

There is a spot for everything in this mudroom – Shoe cubbies below, ample storage for scarves, dog leashes, hats, and bags under the bench seats (solid ash), and lots of pegs on the wall.

Blue Hardware

Not long ago I was checking out a house in the Oakland hills that caught my client’s fancy – rustic modern I’d call it rustic modern with a bit of whimsy. I like it. I also like that it was surrounded by trees and shrubs so that I had trouble getting a good photo of the whole building. I noticed one nice detail that is daring and unusual. photo 1 If you look closely you will see that the post bases and the other structural connectors are blue! Here is a close up: blue hardware

We took the train to Sacramento today to look around. In addition to nice trees, we saw some noteworthy buildings. Here are a few.

I think this one was a bank

This pyramid of warm yellow stone – a great shape for a building in a place where land isn’t too expensive. Every room gets a roof deck!
