• Max and Nadia Rombakh


Did we ever share our main inspiration for #theestate? It's this house right here. Max and I call it the Tuscaloosa - 119 Tuscaloosa Ave, Atherton, CA.

It's sort of a modern + farmhouse + tuscan hybrid. It was the only thing that satisfied my desire for a mediterranean and Max's loyalty to contemporary homes as well as the coveted farmhouse. Seemed fitting as well, seeing that we were building a home in Bridle Trails. And it was this image below that brought me to this home during our design process.

Nothing speaks Estate more to me than a sun hall. One of those extra rooms, an indulgence, that's not necessary and it's just an added expense. But did we really want to walk dirty dishes through the kitchen to get to the scullery during parties? Heaven forbid.

We positioned the hall to allow direct access to the scullery from the dining room for easy and obscure dinner party set-up and clean-up. Equal to its function is its beauty and another opportunity to introduce a major theme throughout the design; the romantic play on indoor/outdoor space. I cannot wait to experience that space. The evening sunlight flooding the hall through its floor-to-ceiling wall of windows! Swoon.
