Design Fixation: It Smells of Rich Mahogany

It Smells of Rich Mahogany

Have you noticed how sometimes a room with a great deal of wooden areas feels overwhelmingly lodgy, and not in a good way? But other times it can be done right, with modern lines and contrasting decor for balance. This Manhattan Beach home certainly walks the line....






What do you think? Too much mahogany, or just the right amount? See more images in the LA Times.

  1. No problem, I could live in this house. Just the right amount of wood. Reminds me of our boat and I'm sure it's near the water. The rock like floor in the bathroom is what I would love for my "beach house" of my dreams.

  2. I feel the same way, and YES it does have a boat-like appeal!
