Transforming the house on the hill – Jerry Jacobs, of Jerry Jacobs Design

The client called and said she had a house on a hill by the late Hindu Architect Chary Dagam.  Confronted  with an expansive space boasting 72 columns, lots of arches and stark white interior finishes,  Jerry Jacobs, of Jerry Jacobs Design started by  faux finishing all the columns in Calacatta Gold, to soften them and make the space warmer and more elegant. The clients were very receptive to color so Jerry Jacobs used deep red stain on the drift oak library walls. To see the transformation of the living room, family room and breakfast room click continue – believe us, its worth it!

In the Living room Jerry Jacobs covered the fireplace shaft with a Versailles Cast stone surround and selected green tones to bring the garden in.

The circular concept emanating from the center for all the curved seating and gathering on as can be seen from above.

In the expansive family room Jerry chose two sectionals one facing the TV to be seen from the kitchen (not shown), the other facing the fireplace. A game table was added at the end near the wet bar. To control western sun exposure the designer used motorized sheers flanked by two plus level antiqued velour drape panels on either side. The rug was produced in India for the room.
The breakfast nook facing the Eastern mountains, features a black cast stone pedestal table and a clear glass top to accommodate 8 to 10. Yellow here in drapery and chairs, is accentuated with black piping and the base.

Wonderful to see a classic piece of architecture getting new life through vibrant finishes and well proportioned furnishings.

Great to see so many inspiring interior being submitted. Send us yours to beforeandafter@modenus.com

    Thank you, sorry I didn’t see this before. Wish I had met him, but they called me precisely because he had passed.
    Best regards,

    Andale, I just notice the earlier comments including the one from the Architect’s son. 7 years fly.
