The family wanted a place to spend Summers working and to spend time together

Bridge for Design | By staff | Autumn, 2018

A new-build holiday home recently designed by interior design company Lonni Paul Design needed to tick all the boxes.

With a square footage of just under 5,000, the getaway space belonged to a family of three from Los Angeles. Boasting six bedrooms, the family explained they wanted a place to spend their Summers working, while still spending time with their ten year old son.

The location of the new home fitted the bill perfectly. Gozzer Ranch had an enormous range of facilities to keep the family entertained, with boating, swimming, social events, kids’ clubs, and events, concerts – everything they could possibly want. In addition, there was an annual Summer camp which the parents could attend too.

Their extended family and friends visit the home to join the family on different weeks during the Summer, and to prove the place is a home from home, they also spent their first thanksgiving there last November, although family dinners can be taken at home or at the clubhouse on the ranch itself. Inside the home, there is everything from a pizza oven and built in spa, to smart house technology and even a crystal Ralph Lauren antler chandelier.

ABOVE: The cabin style architecture of the home fits well into the wooded surrounding and is directly contrasted by the contemporary furniture and high gloss lacquer bar in blue. Even the chandelier blends lodge and modern style with natural crystals hung from the antlers. OPPOSITE: Matching iron beds with linen upholstery are accented by custom window coverings and pillows. An iron and stone entry table is contrasted against polished nickel and alabaster sconces. The home is family focused and the outdoor seating area is where many evenings are spent. A perfect blend of classic styling with a modern twist, this kitchen includes marble countertops on the white cabinetry.
