Once a bland developer town house, this Playa Vista town home went from drab to fab after being stripped of its forgettable finishes and trite decorator details. In the kitchen a ho-hum travertine backsplash and uninspired maple cabinetry gave way to crisp, Caesarstone countertops, fresh white glass mosaics and deep wenge cabinets. Soft creams and off whites contrast with dark wood furniture and flooring in the living room. The double-height silk curtain and billowing chandelier add drama while the stainless steel fireplace and translucent Louis Ghost chair put a modern twist on this elegant space. In the study a cascading wall of mother of pearl mosaic tiles is anchored by custom built-ins stacked neatly with matching storage boxes.
