8 lessons in luxury from a contemporary farmhouse home

Melissa Bradford

When you build a home in one of LA’s most sort-after neighborhoods you want the interior design to match the glamorous setting. This newly built six-bedroom house  is located above Sunset Boulevard in the Brentwood district of Los Angeles and is packed with luxurious finishes and design details that make it one of the world’s best homes

Now on the market for $12 million, the contemporary farmhouse-style home was completed in early 2022. Its sumptuous and inspired interiors are the distinctive work of designer Jae Omar (opens in new tab), who talked to us about the project and shares its luxury highlights below.

Jae Omar, the architectural designer of this Brentwood, LA, home, describes his latest project as a contemporary farmhouse-style residence – his signature style – explaining that this particular property has a ‘deconstructed facade that was pared down to create a greater juxtaposition with the opulent and natural palette that runs throughout the interior.’

‘The residence caters to all of the senses,’ he adds, ‘featuring a central bar as a piece of jewelry, an aromatic raw cedar ceiling, and warm plaster walls that meet leathered stone surfaces and expansive panes of glass.’

There are many striking living room ideas here that would lend a touch of luxury to any style of home. The raw cedar cladding on the ceiling, which Jae describes as ‘aromatic’ shows that every detail, and indeed every sense, has been considered here. The cladding appears throughout the home’s public spaces and besides providing a glamorous finish, it gives a warm cocooning feel to the environment, and provides a comforting connection between the home and the natural world outside.
