Santa Monica Sanctuary
The client purchased the home from Julie Andrews and her husband Blake Edwards when their children were young. Now that the three girls are young adults, they wanted to transition their house to be more refined and meet their current living needs. Having their home be a place for rest and relaxation, along with being a space with multiple settings to entertain groups large and small, was the intent of the overall design.
The wife's dream home is a modern one and the husband's love continued to be the Spanish estate they owned. Jennifer worked closely with the client to keep the Spanish spirit and incorporated a fresh and elegant feel in the architecture, finishes, furniture and landscape to have it meet her aesthetic better. The end result is a home that functionally and stylistically the whole family enjoys.
