Green L.A. residence with a colorful design and light wood accents

The Courtyard House is a project designed by Thomas Robertson of Ripple Design. The house is located in Los Angeles, in the Westowood neighborhood. There are a lot of interesting things to say about the project. First of all, this is a sustainable and green building. It has solar panels, photo voltaic cells, radiant heat, central heat and air conditioning and several other features.

Sitting on a 6316 square foot lot, the house covers more than 2800 square feet. It has three bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and a beautiful deck. When you add up all these details and features, the house seems really interesting but, of course, there are a lot of other projects that sound just like that. What makes this one special is the attractive and colorful design.

It’s impossible not to feel cheerful and happy in this house. The colors are so lovely and nicely chosen. Cold and warm colors were beautifully combined throughout the house. The furniture seamlessly fits right in and there are also a number of wooden elements for a perfect balance. The exterior deck has a soft slope and features orange tiles in various shades which match the interior hallway as well as some of the other interior features.
