The Art of Interior Design at Arterra in Carmel Valley

Ani Yufe is at Arterra in Carmel Valley, and she shows us that it offers a really cool outdoor lounge area. She highlights the modern overhang structure located behind her and how it ties into the modernist vibe that Arterra has to offer.

So as you can see there are no columns. There’s just an overhang which is a very modern thing that actually some architects use all over the world. That overhang without having columns; structural engineering is definitely at play there. So really cool little features. And then you have the contrasting in the cool little lounge area. So what it, what it does is creates a sense of enclosure and it also creates that openness. So you have that sense of enclosure like you’re back in the womb. It’s cozy and it’s comfy which is really cool so people can gather. And at the same time there’s a sense of openness. So it’s kind of, like contrasting so it’s really cool. Then you have the contrast of the dark and then the brighter–, darker features of the browns in the lounge and then the bright areas are pops of color in pillows. And then you have these cool little features. You have the little stools and then you have a nice little fireplace. So thank you so much for watching and stayed tuned. And I will see you on the next episode.
