James Radin is a god

James Radin is an interior designer who designed Nancy Myers' house. She asked for his help with Something's Gotta Give and voila! The house that everyone talked about. But THIS house takes it to a new level. It's a bit fresher - one step beyond the movie. By the way, I contacted their office and the paint is NOT Dove White - it's Grand Teton White by Benjamin Moore...

Radin chose the black Windsor chairs for contrast -- "like a punctuation mark" -- in the creamy room, painted White Dove by Benjamin Moore. Tiles, sinks, and faucets are by Waterworks. Stone and wall oven, warming drawer, microwave, and hood are Viking. The hand-planed, slightly distressed floors are stained antique walnut.

The family room is a natural extension of the kitchen. Striped fabric on the breakfast chairs is Buoy in bluebird by Delany & Long.

In the family room of this new L.A. house, Benjamin Moore's Dove White sets off the owners' collection of 19th-century American spongeware. An easy chair, one of a pair, is covered in Morelia in Robins Egg from Raoul. Most of the upholstered furniture in the house was designed by James Radin.

Living room chair from Lee Stanton Antiques; Patterson, Flynn & Martin rug.

Warm light and an aura of tranquility define the mood in the master bedroom. Curtains and roman shades are Cowtan & Tout's Sutton in aqua. A little stuffy for me... but still peaceful.
