Room of the Week #BlogTourCali remembered

November 3, 2014

Just over a week ago I returned from BlogTourCali so this week I have chosen a Californian living room as our Room of the Week. I really embraced and enjoyed the lifestyle in California. Outdoor living in eternal sunshine is pretty amazing and the homes are often designed to make the most of the exterior views. The huge picture window in this room allows the majestic sculptural qualities of the Aleppo Pine tree to be appreciated.


This room features polished concrete floors that help to make the most of the natural light. While in San Francisco I spent an amazing evening with the architect Fu Tung Cheng who explained about his experience building with concrete. The dinner was held in the showroom of Zephyr, who are a BlogTourCali sponsor. With a broad range of cooker hoods to suit your kitchen style I rather fell for design of the Horizon hood. This range was designed by Robert Brunner, who was Director of Industrial Design at Apple Computers … ah, that’s why I like the styling!

Through his association with Zephyr Fu Tung Cheng has designed his own range of hoods for the company. For a large island the Trapeze hood would certain add a signature style to any kitchen. So often island hoods become large and cumbersome, but this one has been designed to add a stylish element to any room.

Join me through this week as we explore more of my #BlogTourCali experiences. The tour was arranged by Modenus, and the other sponsors of our design trip through California are Miele, Mr Steam and DXV. I’ll be featuring them, and the events they organised for us throughout this week. So if household appliances, bathroom fittings or the enjoyment of steam are your thing be sure to sign up to receive updates from our blog.

This room was originally featured in the extensive galleries of House to Home. Take a look over at their website for room inspiration, and be sure to check back here every week to find which one of the room has been showcased.
