When a young California couple came to SALTHOUSE collective they were in need of a bold remodel. Reformatting the home’s layout gave the family room to grow and washes of blue among neutral tones ensure that this home will be a relaxing retreat for years to come. Enjoy the beautiful photos taken by Charlotte Lea Photography as you tour this dreamy Cali-Casa.
From the designer… My client’s newly purchased 90s suburban home was feeling dated with a choppy layout. She envisioned having more of an indoor/outdoor space for her family with a California coastal feel. Working with JLC architecture, SALTHOUSE collective helped to reformat the entire 2 story/2800 sq foot home to create a great room with 3 sets of bifold doors that connect to the soon-to-be built entertaining backyard and reworked the upstairs layout to include a primary suite on one half of the house and a playroom + kids bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms on the other half of the home
We kept the majority of the house light and bright with crisp white walls and layered in various shades of blues, textures, and lots of greenery to add a bit of coastal vibes. The kitchen island is a fun dark black-blue hue which contrasts nicely against the leather and white oak counter stools, white back wall of cabinetry, and quartzite island. And the pantry brings some pretty white oak tones into the space. The kids’ bathrooms and bedrooms layer in coastal-modern style as well with fun wallpapers, art, and woven textures. Finally, the primary suite is a relaxing coastal dream with varying shades of blues/neutrals in the bedroom space and a mostly monochromatic bathroom with a custom white oak vanity.
We completely gutted and reformatted the space to give this home an ultra coastal-modern California feel that really plays well to the young family’s lifestyle and gave them an entertaining space that will continue to grow with them as their kids get older.
