Because the home is digital, there are not any sensible constraints, that means designers have free reign to design what’s new and subsequent in residence design. I used to be thrilled to hitch designers like Bobby Berk and Brigette Romanek, and fortunately I used to be tasked with a “room” that’s proper up my alley: the outside eating space.
I drew my inspiration for this digital design from the house’s west coast setting in Brentwood, California. I leaned into supplies that mirror the California-meets-Mediterranean aesthetic that I’m at all times drawn to, utilizing terra cotta, textural stucco, heat wooden, and tile all through the area. And naturally, I designed all of it to be an area supposed for intimate gatherings and bringing individuals collectively round a desk stuffed with scrumptious meals.

The eating desk
The eating desk is the center of this room, so I selected a big farmhouse-style desk that’s meant for gathering and can by no means exit of fashion.
Setting the desk
After all, I set the desk with earthy, informal items from Casa Zuma. I skipped the linen tablecloth so the fantastic thing about the wooden desk might take heart stage, however added texture with woven placemats and handmade ceramic dinnerware.
There was loads of area for an off-the-cuff residing space off the eating room, so I designed a comfortable lounge that’s centered round a stucco hearth. Constructed-in seating and low, lounge-y chairs create a zone for studying, speaking, and chilling exterior.
The pizza oven
You guys know that if there’s any method potential so as to add a pizza oven to an outside area, I’m gonna go for it! This luxury model is unquestionably for my fellow pizza lovers, turning out genuine wood-fired pizzas like an Italian chef. The attractive tile makes it really feel a bit extra polished, and concrete counters maintain toppings, instruments, and recent herbs for garnish.
