Located in a secluded building in the Berkeley Hills, this 1965 home blends a clean and minimalist appearance with pops of color and beautiful artwork.
Yamamar Design’s architect David Yama teamed up with interior designer Alison Damonte to give this mid-century modern home a fresh new look. The owners wanted to remodel the house with a minimal look with art and photography at the center of the stage.
The three-story house won the hearts of its owners with its breathtaking view. The living room has an unusually beautiful original cast concrete fireplace that was built in Mexico in the 1960s. A couple of lemon yellow velvet chairs and geometric pieces create a bold and eye-catching ambience, and wooden beams add coziness.
The originally small and dark kitchen has been transformed into a large open space. Geometric tiles and glossy white housings are combined with lively and colorful seating. The dining area has modern colorful mid-century furniture, a wooden dining table and some artwork. I love the traditional sunburst chandelier for such interiors.
The master bedroom has a watercolor wallpaper and has been decorated in soft blue and gray tones. There is some artwork and a comfortable bench by the window, and you can see an elegant dark fireplace that is not currently in use but adds to the space.
The bathroom is neutral, subway and hex tiles in calm hues, a shower, and a tiled tub. It looks very inviting and soft.
This home is a beautiful example of mid-century modern style with colorful accents and bright, open, inviting spaces. Get inspired and steal some ideas for your own home!
