The Courtyard House by Ripple Design

Designed by Thomas Robertson of Ripple Design, the Courtyard House is located in the Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, California.WhatI can  say is that I love the wood with knots. I know that are many people who don`t like the wood with knots/spots on it.The Courtyard House is about 2800+ square feet and the lot is 6316 square feet and featuring 3 bedrooms, den, 3.5 baths, electric gated entry. It’s a green house because it features Solar panels, Photo Voltaic Cells, Radiant Heat, Central Heat and Air. This house drives me crazy.

But I guess there are many “green” houses by now. What makes this one so special is its design. It looks really cool and colourful. You simply feel happy when you see all these combinations of colours and shades and the way in which the furniture matches the overall design of the room and of the house.

The orange and red tiles outside the house match the identical tiles on the hallway that can also be seen through the glass doors and the carpets in the rooms are mostly made of squares of different colours put together. This brings a special feature in the rooms with white walls and light brown furniture.
