With its envious open-concept design and backdrop of sparkling ocean and azure skies, it’s no wonder that 18013 Sea Reef Drive was chosen to grace the cover and inside pages of DOLCE Magazine’s summer edition. Listed with the Smith & Berg team at Partners Trust, the breathtaking Pacific Palisades home sets the stage for an inspiring feature story with Lewis Howes, best-selling author and entrepreneur, who is photographed throughout the 17,000 square foot property.
Thanks in large part to designer Janet Vargas of L.A.-based Azul Staging, who orchestrated the home’s interior dialogue to match its exterior surroundings, this ocean-facing residence captures the essence of SoCal’s laid-back coastal lifestyle. The article describes how she made sure to inject oceanic elements and colors both subtle and bold in every room, adding that, “the signature wall in the house assumes a coastal theme, as a blue-lit core held between two glass planks transports you to the serene depths of the Pacific.”
Accentuating this point—and displayed prominently in the magazine—is the home’s most defining architectural element: three sets of custom, hide-away doors that allow for effortless ease between the home’s interior and exterior spaces as well as invite views spanning from Santa Monica Bay to Catalina Island.
