Mill Valley House is located in Marin County, California and features interiors designed by Artistic Designs for Living.
The house is light, airy, elegant yet casual and a place to live and not show off. The tones are neutral and natural materials can be seen everywhere, and the artist owner’s paintings add vibrant pops of color.
Wood is characterized by hardwood floors, wooden beams and of course unique handcrafted furniture. The main living area blends seamlessly with the kitchen and dining areas, with the dining area dominated by a seascape that appears to open the space outwards.
Every element of Mill Valley House feels just right. This is not a venue but a home designed as a place for real people to live and work in without feeling like they are messing up the picture. A black lab darting across the floor and a kid sprawled on the carpet reading a comic would look just right.
The house is small, but the space and light are used so skillfully that you don’t feel cramped. The storage is well thought out and well integrated into the design. With a clean, stainless steel and white theme, the kitchen is clearly for a serious but unpretentious chef who wants to prepare great meals for family and friends instead of impressing the world with a range of appliances that are never used.
Beautiful, practical, homely and warm, the Mill Valley House is a triumph of interior design in a somewhat challenging space.
