Architect Scott Marek, who worked under the legendary Frank Welch, showcases his signature style on this Midway Hollow home: a balance between contemporary and comfortable. 4028 Davila Drive’s large windows draw the eye inside, creating a welcoming, not stark, façade. Similarly, precise landscaping complements the home’s angles while coaxing visitors toward the front door.
With such a clean-lined exterior, one might imagine the home’s interior to be the same. On the contrary—the home’s living spaces are cheerful and colorful, featuring a standout selection of wallpaper and paint colors. Though the floor plan is open, there’s a notable distinction between the rooms; each has its own personality.
The living room, for example, is welcoming and warm, swathed in a palette of opulent creams and golds. The dining room, directly adjacent, feels distinguished and a bit daring thanks to its geometric wallpaper and dark, moody hues.
The bathrooms, too, don’t disappoint. One features black-and-white tiling and a claw-foot tub; another has burnt orange walls and amber-colored light fixtures.
We’re particularly partial to the study, where the walls and ceiling are lacquered in a bold cerulean. Wood built-ins and crown moldings are painted a sophisticated black to add contrast. The current styling highlights the room’s androgyny–both heavy and delicate pieces feel at home here.
Each time we flipped through the listing’s photos, something new caught our eye. The wood floor panels in the entryway are arranged in a herringbone pattern, for example, and in one sitting room, the punchy orange wallpaper is an exact match to the curtains.
