Located in Thousand Oaks, CA, this custom-built family home has the heart of a modern farmhouse. Designed by architect Bob Hale of Rios Clementi Hale, with interiors by NicoleHollis, the light-filled home embraces indoor-outdoor living with soaring ceilings, floor-to-ceiling steel frame windows, expansive views and an interconnected series of patios and alfresco seating and entertaining areas.

For the interiors, NicoleHollis collaborated closely with the client, a stylish, creative family with three teenage children, to devise an integrated, layered, and refined design that supported their lifestyle and interest in entertaining.

The dusty pale jade colour of an egg from one of the family’s Araucana chickens established the muted materials palette and served as the colour for all custom cabinetworks.

The nuanced interiors also highlight the client’s art collection with works by Richard Serra, Damien Hirst and Ed Ruscha as well as up-and-coming and West Coast artists.

The glowing layout features five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, a separate guest cottage, an outdoor kitchen and fire pit, a pool, and a pool house with a gym.

The scope included interior architecture, artisanal millwork and finishes, custom built-ins, lighting, furnishings, accessories, and art consultation.

The home’s central great room combines a kitchen with Kolkata marble countertops and Christian Liaigre lighting with the dining and living areas.

Anchored by artwork by Richard Serra, the dining area features a custom NicoleHollis dining table and custom benches by Michael Boyd.

The living room includes hand-painted ombré linen curtains, fine tailored upholstery, and glimmers of metallic accessories.

A clubby lounge area serves as a space for entertaining, with a full-length bar, custom built-in banquettes, accent neon lights and plush dark green club chairs.

The home also features two office spaces, a serene master bedroom with a four-poster bed, a master bathroom as well as his-and-her walk-in closets.

The children’s bedrooms channel their distinct personalities, with hanging seating and a variety of bespoke and built-in storage.
