• Sara Rotman’s House | MR Architecture + Décor.

    Posted on 13th December, by Dana Tomić Hughes in architecture, interior design. 5 Comments

      So… What do you get when you combine Sara Rotman, principal and creative director of a successful branding company, and David Mann, architect and founder of a high end New York firm MR Architecture + Décor? You get one smoking hot house, that’s what. At least that’s what you’d hope you’d get, right? Anyway… This weekend retreat is a reflection of the client’s and the architect’s mutual love of Modernism, and their combined goal to create a home which was in harmony with the site and the local surroundings. I’ve gotta tell ya, I’m loving the contradictions that exist within this house. First we have the minimalist, robust and no-nonsense exterior, coupled with an honest material palette used throughout – timber, split stone and polished concrete. This screams “architect” in every way, right? Then we have the glam factor – cowhide seat at the entry, gold antler chandelier over dining table, bright red chairs, fur upholstered lounge tubs with gold frame side tables, crushed velvet bed sheets (giddy up!) and that sort of thing. Such a brilliant contrast which screams of the “non-architect”, or in this case the “client”. You with me? This is precisely why I love this house. It’s a perfect marriage of styles, both of which create a chic and sophisticated weekend home with loads of personality. Extreme Love. FO SHO!

      Because the interior’s pretty eclectic as a contrast to the house, it really makes it feel like a ‘home’ rather than an overtly styled house.
      Love it, I’d put up with living there.
