Mediterranean House Custom-Designed for Casual Elegance
Built in the 1970s, this house was not reflective of the owners’ taste nor did it fulfill their lifestyle needs. They wanted a casually elegant home where they could comfortably entertain, relax and plan for the future.
The goal was to update their entire home with custom furniture, mantels, lighting, flooring and an elegant foyer that would amplify the casually chic ambiance to be found throughout the rest of the house.
The redesign involved enlarging the kitchen, raising floors to eliminate “sunken” rooms, removing rustic stones from the fireplace fronts, and replacing tile and carpet with dark hardwood floors.
The design objective was to create harmony throughout the house using neutral colors, rich and elegant fabrics, custom-designed furniture and accessory pieces, and sophisticated lighting fixtures and finishes.
The kitchen, breakfast and family rooms were designed in colors, materials and textures that would harmoniously blend these three areas within their one large space. Yet the cabinets, tables, and seating were specifically designed to accommodate the function, space maximization and comfort required in each room.
The owners enjoy private time or casually entertaining family and friends in a house they custom-designed… which is now truly their home!
