The design for this California ranch house was inspired by the youthful spirit of our client! Using classic mid-century design elements infused with a bohemian flair, we created a truly livable family home reflecting the spirit of people inside. While the vaulted ceilings and open floor plan added a beautiful architectural element, the space lacked the light and airy feel we were wanting to achieve.

To create a brighter space, we added multiple lighting sources throughout the space as well as mirrors to bounce light off of the sunroom doors leading to the backyard. Multiple textures including velvet, jute, teak, and fur were used to give each room a unique and individual feel while keeping a cohesive thread throughout the space!
