Blog David Hockney's zwembad
19 April, 2017
34 years a go Architectural Digest took a look into David Hockney’s California home. This house is where he famously painted his pool. it was deemed very colourful back in the eighties – said Hockney, “Everyone who comes here likes it. People don’t dare such colors usually.”
Hockney began creating his unique “set” for living three years ago when he purchased, on the West Coast, a somewhat ordinary brown ranch-style house nestled against a wooded hillside. The transformation has taken place gradually as he has devised the exotic palette for each architectural element, each room, one step at a time. The only structural change has been the addition of three pyramidlike apertures to light the studio/living room. “What I am doing, slowly, is making my own environment—room by room—as artists do. Of course it’s fun,” he says.
