California Coast Color & Design

It's always a delight  to color and  design in beautiful southern California.  

Goal was to create a modern version of this water view home, while honoring the existing old world architecture.   

The entire design project was done via a virtual consultation, including space planning, design, fixed finishers, furnishings, and wall art.

My client was an absolute pleasure to work with.  And her professional contractor skillfully transformed my sketches into reality.   

The design process went smooth, communication was great, and everyone was thrilled with the result.

The existing kitchen cabinets were in excellent condition, so we kept mosts, modified the rest, added high crown molding over the permanent soffit, extended island to create eating area, and designed a quintessential window seat.

All cabinets and trim were painted Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace.   New white backsplash tile was installed to ceiling.   New honed Carrara marble countertops added authentic beauty.

A retro fit farm sink was installed, hardware replaced with polished nickel, and a new dark wood floor, all added to the transformation.

The second stage of the Great room was the family room renovation.    Mission to update fireplace wall, and all new furnishings and decor.

The existing raised heath could not be removed.  And keeping it reinforced old world architecture into a m modern transition.

Thrilled my client liked the classic modern Gray Malin photography - a perfect nod to our sophisticated coastal theme.

We continued the Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace woodwork throughout the home, but lightened the wall color to Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray in the rest of the home.

Another successful project was accomplished thru great teamwork, and the power of color and design to complete transform a space into a meaningful and beautiful home.
