Towards the end of 2019 I had the pleasure of photographing ID by Cora’s latest project in Ventura, CA.
To tell a bit of Cora’s story, she grew up in Alaska where her father was a carpenter. After studying art history in Italy, she purchased a ranch style house and her childhood experience of building and designing with her father naturally kicked back in. She became slowly obsessed with the details of her new home and in general with Interior Design. Fast forward to today as I am thrilled to share her newest project, a home inspired modern ranch style design.
Cora designed this project truly with the client in mind.
Her client being a lifelong firefighter with an love of hosting wanted to create a home that was inviting yet modern with great details such as the all black plumbing fixtures. As you scroll through the gallery below you’ll see that Cora did an amazing job of doing just that!
One element Cora wanted to capitalize on included the homes amazing views while also embracing the history of the home. Every window that you looked out of you could see trees, so she affectionately named this home “The Treehouse”.
Cora partnered with architect Taylor Simpson to collaboratively design this amazing home. The design included; two living rooms adjoined by a two way fireplace, an incredible master bath that would rival any spa experience, and a neutral color palette giving the home a clean, modern contemporary look.
Personally there were so many things I loved about this project including the custom front door, the artisan oak coffee table made by 805 Woodworks and a custom rug made by the Area Rug Factory.
Cora, you did an amazing job and I cannot wait to work with you again!
