No doubt wood is a sure thing when you want something to look warm, welcoming and cozy. Pine Hill Residence is as warm as a house can get with wood tones throughout the interior.

From Dowling Kimm Studios:

This project involved interior architecture, millwork design and furniture for a 6000 square foot (550 square meters) single family residence located on a site with an incredible views of San Francisco Bay and the East Bay beyond.

The design reflects the clients’ interest in contemporary design and exotic materials. End grain mesquite block wood floors, finished with a walnut stain, run throughout.

The wood texture contrasts with a path of large format concrete tiles, The kitchen is composed of horizontal grain zebra wood with walnut accents, and honed granite countertops. the large sliding doors, which separate the kitchen and the study from the living room, are finished in custom heat burnished stainless steal panels.

The furnishings are modern, but comfortable, with muted natural tones and subtle textures.
