When the wind comes up and a sudden storm rolls through, it can be hard to spot the peaks surrounding Lake Tahoe from this pastoral living room. But the chilled- out mountain vibe is everywhere in the open-plan contemporary house, designed by Marmol Radziner.
“The bridging of exterior and interior” was the goal here, say principals Leo Marmol and Ron Radziner, “as was bringing the exterior within the room using a limited palette of neutral earthy tones.”
Among their favorite furnishings: a pair of vintage Hans Wegner lounge chairs from 1stDibs, an Ecart Kraft floor lamp and ceramics by Christiane Perrochon and others whose natural hues reflect those of the stone fireplace wall. India Mahdavi’s Jetlag sofas in a warm granite almost read as architecture in the ultra-tranquil setting.
