    Default A gracefully modern home

    When a former dancer bought her midcentury Joseph Eichler house in Marin County, she renovated it with the same forward-looking minimalism she applied to her choreography.

    Love the space, but you can burn most of the furnishings.

    I couldn't live there with so much white going on. It needs way more color.

    Jeez - check out the all-while clothes in the wardrobe too. I bet this woman is one of those ultra control OCD types who needs everything to be placed just-so using a ruler if necessary.

    oooh... an eichler house! i love the house itself, the interior not so much. it's too sterile looking, not inviting enough. and i really like that sculpture in the last pic.

    I love the centre courtyard, and like the building design. The place is too cold in most parts for me.

    I like it, yet, doesn't seem FUNCTIONAL at all. The couches are pretty cool/unique but again, who the hell could actually sit in them for any length of time?

    This place could ROCK w/some tweaking.

    Could you imagine the massive pain in the ass it would be to clean up that place with a couple of little kids running around? One would spend half the day windex'ing handprints off of all the glass.

    to bring the outdoors indoors. (floor to ceiling windows, skylights, courtyard, ...) it's a typical eichler house.
