When undertaking a total gut renovation of this Sherman Oaks home in Los Angeles, designer Rob Diaz of Rob Diaz Design knew that he wanted to transform the small, dark, closed-off rooms in this double A-frame into a peaceful retreat reflecting both European and California sensibilities. This involved incorporating Scandinavian aspects (clean lines, natural textures, neutral tones) as well as statement light fixtures and unexpected materials. Above all, Rob wanted the home to feel sophisticated, upscale and contemporary yet timeless.
