LA Home Renovation Mixes Neutral Colors + Modern Elements

The Chalon Residence is a minimalist house located in Los Angeles, California, designed by KES Studio. The renovation involved reconfiguring the layout and introducing new spaces to achieve a harmonious mix of traditional and contemporary elements, with a focus on converting an adjacent, partially-renovated property into a guest house.

The peaceful atmosphere of the home is largely due to the use of neutral materials such as limestone flooring, linen draperies, mohair upholstery, and wool and silk area rugs. A highlight of the space is the library, distinguished by its bold, high-contrast color scheme. The residence also boasts a carefully curated art collection featuring works by artists like Greg Ludlow, Jeri Ledbetter, Manolo Bellesteros, Clara Graziolino, and Audrey Samarin.

Among the residence’s luxurious features is a custom-built, curved wine room with a capacity of 350 bottles, finished in Black Eyed Pea stone. The primary shower, with its Calcutta Manhattan finish, is also a highlight with a focus on the space’s materiality. The living room and library feature the Nova rug collection from KES Studio, created in partnership with Marc Philips.
