Spaces Magazine and Marin Magazine profiled Alden Miller Interiors’ Corte Madera project by telling the story of how the modern exterior juxtaposes with warm interior spaces and furnishings. With sweeping photos, the magazine illustrates how we blended our clients’ varied tastes.
Our longtime clients chose to update their starter home that has 180-degree views of Mt. Tam, San Francisco, and the bay rather than move to a new house. Architects Heidi Richardson and Andrew Pribuss increased square footage and added a third floor. They created a central staircase and masterfully brought the outside in. The surrounding greenery and nature is framed with new windows and floor to ceiling sliding doors. Decks and patios pepper the property blurring the lines between interior and exterior.
Design team collaboration was key for this project. We worked closely with the architects as well as Anna Kondolf Lighting Design and Calder Custom Builders.
Alden Miller Interiors’ design challenge however, was blending the styles of the couple: he preferred minimalist modern, while she wanted warm and cozy. We achieved this by adding texture and color with the floor coverings and softening the walls with drapery. Natural materials bring depth and warmth to the modern architecture.
The result is a both a modern showpiece and a livable family home. Click the magazine cover or here to see the feature.
