Thousand Oaks Residence is a 12,000 square foot, five-bedroom family home in California designed by architects Rios Clementi Hale with interiors by NICOLEHOLLIS. With the heart of a modern farmhouse, the home embraces the outdoors with floor-to-ceiling windows and an interconnected series of patios and entertaining areas including a pool and fire pit. The property also includes a separate guest cottage and a pool house with a gym. Interiors were designed around the family’s lifestyle, from supporting their interest in entertaining to highlighting their art collection that includes work by Richard Serra, Damien Hirst and Ed Ruscha as well as up-and-coming and West Coast artists. Even the material palette was personalised, its muted colours inspired by a dusty pale jade egg from one of the family’s Araucana chickens. The colour was used for custom cabinetry throughout the home, met by natural materials including stone, wood and linen.
De La Espada furniture is used throughout the home: Bench with Back by Studioilse in the entryway; Hepburn Sofa by Matthew Hilton in the master bedroom; Manta Dining Chair, also by Hilton, in one of the offices and the stairwell; and Elysia Lounge Chair by Luca Nichetto in the living room.
