Architect Michael Kovac and interior designer Trip Haenisch managed to do just that in collaboration with Courtney Cox for the remodel of her Malibu house.

Concise and airy it creates a perfect vibe for the modern barn vibe desired by C.Cox. And living in Malibu one needs plenty of the outdoor spaces to enjoy the scenery.

…on the other hand, nude and pale colors work just as well if you have a proper sun-tan to pull it off. Ah, next year…for sure.
