  • Rose Residence for a Fun Loving Family

    We recently completed a small renovation for a client.  The addition included revamping the master bed and bathroom that connected to the outdoors.  A bright palette was employed along with natural materials to reflect the client’s quirky personality.  At a recent BBQ at the house, we got a glimpse into how the design improved their home.

    The ceiling of the Master Bedroom was vaulted to add volume in this modest addition.

     

    Wall cabinets create a buffer to the adjacent bathroom.

    Wood, Brass and Cement tiles brighten up the Master Bath.

  • Rosewood Residence Breaks Ground

    Construction has begun on our latest Mar Vista residence.  Seated in a quiet cul-de-sac, this will be home for the family who has chosen to stay in the neighborhood they love so much.  We are please to see the number of our clients who are electing to build and stay in their communities.

  • DEX + Dwell = LA Home Tours 2016

    We are pleased to be a part of Dwell’s home tours this year. The always-popular Dwell Home Tour takes place over three days and will allow attendees to explore the pages of the magazine. Dwell Home Tours allow design seekers to immerse themselves dwellhometoursin “Dwell-like” domestic spaces.

    DEX Studio designed the Keeshen property to highlight warm, modern design with indoor-outdoor living for a small family with Midwestern roots. To accomplish this, DEX re-oriented the overall layout and added a second story to the original non-descript, single-story home. Using the firm’s signature visual language of texture and natural materials, the home has open, but idiosyncratic feel that stimulates the senses.
