Hilltop Living

You know a home build is going to be special when the owners are an architect and a designer. McShane and Cleo Murnane put a lot of thought, years in fact, into their new home in the hills of LA's Silverlake. After buying the land, and while waiting to get their requisite construction loan, they debated their options and decided to take advantage of the magnificent views by building at the top of the site.

It definitely paid off as you can see from the view over their living room balcony.

The couple favour a pared-back aesthetic using simple but bold colours and materials.

I love the Caeserstone counter and brass fittings in the kitchen. Although they've kept it quite minimalist, the attention to detail is lovely.

Skylights let the light stream into the bathroom and down the stairs to the kid's bedrooms.

Both Emerson and Lake have subtle half tone walls, the bottom halves feature a durable, high-performance surface, perfect for withstanding knocks and bangs.

In Lake's room his open closet is made from piping and a simple plank of wood, and a rock climbing wall gives him a secret entrance into the living room above. Now that would most definitely go down well in my house!
