Mid-century modern meets California cool in this Palo Alto home

Gustave Carlson Design, in collaboration with Atelier Davis, undertook a comprehensive restoration and expansion of a historic Eichler home nestled in Palo Alto, California.

Ensuring the preservation of the iconic mid-century modern aesthetic, the new vision seamlessly incorporates architectural energy efficiency, sustainability, and meticulously crafted bespoke interiors.

The homeowners are a visionary couple with four daughters, along with an extensive art collection that is primarily composed of emerging female artists.

The designer collaborated with the homeowner remotely during the pandemic to skillfully integrate the client’s art collection, preexisting furnishings, and passion for vibrant colors, all while honoring the original architecture’s sleek lines.

The enclosed atrium now serves as a luminous indoor-outdoor sanctuary, adorned with a suspended swing and an expansive custom daybed, providing an idyllic setting for the family of six to relax and enjoy.

The interior of this home is characterized by Eichler’s distinctive post-and-beam construction. The architect opted to eliminate partitions, creating an open interior that imparts a sense of spaciousness while accommodating the homeowner’s impressive art collection.

In the kitchen, the custom cabinets are painted in Farrow & Ball’s Hague Blue No. 30, complimenting the wood accents, such as the central island with its black walnut countertop.

Each bedroom boasts eye-catching wallcoverings, harmoniously blending textures, patterns, and hues to produce a lively and joyful aesthetic.
