Haute Hygge in Plan Three at Indigo at Canvas Park

The Plan Three townhome at Indigo by Brookfield Residential is an exercise in hygge design and decor. A Danish word that’s derived from old Norwegian and loosely translates to ‘well-being,’ hygge is more a state of being than a particular design form. A cornerstone of Danish culture and everyday life, it resides at the intersection of purpose, form, and style, evocative of all things cozy, charming, warm, and extraordinary. In practice and principle, it’s about creating environments that allow us to enjoy all of life’s great moments with the people we cherish. 

Indigo’s Plan Three represents the hallmark of hygge philosophy in 1,527 square feet—classic Scandinavian design with its beautiful simplicity, cheerful minimalism, and purposeful furnishings. Working with a smaller footprint makes this sophisticated yet approachable style shine. Uncluttered and open sight lines, abundant natural light, and considered placement of furniture and embellishments work in harmony to appeal to all the senses. White-washed walls juxtaposed with warm woods, folk-style accents, and greenery are welcoming and inspire relaxed and comfortable living.

The tenets of hygge are embraced throughout this charming three- to four-bedroom floorplan. It’s easy to envision a group of friends enjoying a Sunday brunch in the woven rope dining chairs or seated among the soft fluffy pillows on the couch. Living areas are a gentle balance of soft curves, angular lines, and neutral hues. Every piece and feature is carefully curated and serves a distinct purpose, from open floating shelves in the upstairs loft, playful macrame wall décor as the entry focal point in the dining area, and a beaded chandelier in the master bedroom. An open terrace with its cozy seating extends the home’s living space into the outdoors in comfort and style. Plan Three is designed to inspire us to live comfortably, beautifully, and to fully embrace life’s moments.

Calm, Cool, and Collected at Gardens Plan 1 at Lantana @Beach

The team masterfully maximized every inch of this two-bedroom, 1,345 square-foot townhome at Gardens Plan 1 at Lantana @Beach by Brookfield SoCal. A subtle contrast of light and dark accentuate Plan 1’s best features, with hues of soft blue, sand, black, and white. An accent wall and charcoal hexagonal floor tile present a striking greeting at the entry, and the addition of a slim metal console and basket transforms the small space into a functional drop zone. Upstairs, open lines and geometric prints blend with nature-inspired shapes and warm woods for a soothing, tranquil balance. A black impact wall in the dining area immediately draws you into the main living spaces, with its larger-than-life botanicals playfully complementing the organic feel. Layering coffee tables of different shapes and materials is a great way to create depth in a room (see our latest post on this trend here), and we particularly love the organic root wood table paired with the glossy round metal piece for contrast. On the third level, bedrooms receive similar treatment with a combination of cool and warm features by extending the color palette and adding textured bedding, a macramé stool, wood and metal furnishings, and contemporary art. Gardens Plan 1 creates a stylish canvas where homebuyers can easily experience the incredible lifestyle at Lantana @Beach!

Sophisticated Bohemian and Modern Flair

White, bright, and full of light, our interpretation of Woodbridge Pacific Group’s Plan 3 at Flair is all about enjoying quintessential Palm Springs vibes. Set in the incredible planned community of Miralon, this mid-century inspired home is desert bohemian paired with modern elements and eclectic embellishments. Bursts of mustard, gold, cranberry, and purple pop against white walls and light tile flooring, with matte black accents offering contrast and sophistication. A geometric lattice screen defines and separates the entryway from the kitchen while keeping sight lines open. In the great room, honey-colored wood veneer wallpaper and camel-toned chairs add warmth, and a low-slung sofa with textured throws maintains the views through double sliding glass doors to the comfortable outdoor living space. Bedrooms are earthy bohemian infused with modern features with retro wallpaper, abstract art, macramé decor, and a balanced composition of texture and pattern in the bedding. Bold geometric prints, contemporary art, texture on texture on texture — this home has it all. Perfect for a vacation or permanent staycation, Plan 3 at Flair is designed for those who plan to live well in contemporary Palm Springs style!

Chameleon Design Takes Home Three Gold Nugget Merit Awards

We couldn’t be more proud of team Chameleon for taking home three Gold Nugget Merit Awards during the virtual awards presentation on Friday, July 24! Judged by a panel of top industry experts and professionals, the Gold Nugget Awards represents some of the best in residential architecture, design, planning, development, and building in projects across the United States and internationally. 

Merit Award | Architecture Category | Best Renovated or Restored Single Home

We transformed a Newport Beach, CA, Beacon Bay three-bedroom home into a five-bedroom modern seaside cottage for a mature family. Paying homage to the mid-century cottage style indigenous to the area, our team reimagined this lovely property for the 21st century to blend seamlessly in an established custom-home neighborhood. By successfully integrating three separate structures with different floor elevations and ceiling heights, we created seamless flow throughout with the addition of a great room large enough to accommodate family and friends, two additional bedrooms, a full bathroom and bonus room, and two built-in desk/work spaces, all while adding only 744 square feet. The result is a family home that’s modern, sophisticated, and full of casual luxuries ideally suited for distinctive bayside living.

Merit Award | Interior Design Category | Best Interior Design of a Custom or One-of-a-Kind Home

Our interior design is the second accolade for this custom Beacon Bay home. We brought a refreshed modern beach house aesthetic and incorporated striking mid-century elements indigenous to the style of this enclave of Newport Beach. A tonal color palette creates balance and harmony with opportunities to surprise and delight with pops of color and character pieces for a one-of-a-kind feel. Organic elements like the natural ash feature wall in the family room and 9’ teak console are statement making and inviting, offering a warm counterpoint to crisp whites and dark bronze hues throughout. The kitchen was renovated from top to bottom to increase the footprint for multiple cooks and connect the family and dining rooms with a bar area for easy mingling. And with easy access to the outdoor living space through bifold glass doors, the home is truly an entertainer’s dream. Bottoms up!

Merit Award | Interior Design Category | Best Interior Merchandising of a Model Home Priced 1 Million and Over

Modern farmhouse style gets a coastal contemporary update in this Plan 7 home at Loden at Olivenhain. Our team combined the most stylish elements in upscale beach and town-and-country design to complement the home’s historic Encinitas address. The neutral scheme of sand, black, taupe, and off white creates subdued sophistication. A warm wood and black metal stair rail is the focal point of the downstairs living areas and draws the eye to the volume ceiling. Kitchen is white and bright, with patterned cement-look deco tile and metal pendants and counter stools. Luxury vinyl plank flooring beautifully transitions to a porcelain wood-look tile to create a seamless connection to the outdoor living space that is elemental to the North County lifestyle.

An Encinitas Coastal Farmhouse Is Laid-Back Luxury Defined

Town and country meets coastal contemporary in this lovely Plan 7 modern farmhouse at Loden at Olivenhain. A luxe-yet-casual balance of both styles accentuates this Woodbridge Pacific Group neighborhood’s prime location nestled in Encinitas horse country only a few miles from pristine North County coastline. This six-bedroom, six-and-a-half bath home is full of livable spaces for everyone, including a home office, media room, and loft. A neutral palette paired with off whites and matte black sets the tone with a refined, organic feel along with textured layers, botanical prints, and greenery. 

Wood furnishings offer richness and depth, and bring out the warm tones from the stair rail and plank flooring. Kids’ rooms designed with surfing and equestrian themes complement the relaxed, outdoor-oriented lifestyle of this intimate 16-home neighborhood. And with two outdoor living spaces, it was crucial to find a porcelain wood-look tile for the exterior that blended with the luxury vinyl plank of the interior to create that seamless inside-to-outside transition. Plan 7 is a luxury, one-of-a-kind home that’s sophisticated and approachable, and lives beautifully for today’s families!

An Eclectic Mix That’s Refreshingly Modern at Indigo Plan 1

When creating interiors, every design detail is important, but it’s especially so in smaller spaces. Our team maximized every inch of this two-bedroom townhome of Indigo at Canvas Park by Brookfield Residential to help prospective buyers envision living large in a smaller footprint. It’s all about scale here, the careful curation of appropriately sized pieces to achieve a stylish balance between form and function. A slim console table and embellishments create a defined entryway and establish a sense of arrival. Cool tones and fresh neutrals complement natural elements like the wood dining table, cocktail table, and three-dimensional block wall decor that play up the organic themes. The white floating shelf creates a chic and layered gallery wall so art and photos can be easily swapped out when it’s time for a change. The interplay of crisp white wall decor against a green wall is unexpected and adds dimension in the master. With its smaller sectional, media, and kids’ craft table, the narrow loft is a reimagined multi-purpose space that’s fun for the kids and stylish enough for the grown-ups to enjoy!

Natural Modern at Solstice Plan 3

This Plan 3 townhome at Solstice by Brookfield Residential lives large with a warm, masculine feel that’s on point and timeless. Thoughtful use of patterns, materials, and color softens the clean-lined vibe. A palette of creamy white, graphite, and mustard hues are cool and transitional, complementing the natural light pouring in from large great room windows. Potted greenery adds a pop of color, grounds the main living areas, and draws the eye to furnishings with a nod to nature and the outdoors. The low-slung, mid-century sofa is simple and stylish, and allows the eye to easily move across the room to give the illusion of more space. Everyone has a spot at the comfy rustic table with bench seating to maximize a narrow dining room, and industrial counter stools connect it to the open and functional kitchen, complete with an upcycled fringe rug and iron lantern pendant. Original artwork in both dining and master bedrooms offers an elevated touch, and bunk beds in secondary bedrooms take the design vertical to create more livable space. (Check out our shared room design post for more inspiration.) This chic haven offers lovely family living in Ontario!

Natural Sophistication at Enliven Plan Two

The Plan Two model at Enliven at The Resort in Rancho Cucamonga is a lesson in understated sophistication that’s open, welcoming, and family friendly: a breath of fresh air for the wonderfully diverse group of buyers who come to make a home here. 

The fresh and modern three-story townhome by Van Daele Homes is highlighted by a rich color scheme of tans, charcoals, black, cream, and pops of mustard to evoke a vibe that’s cozy, yet lively. We loved using  area rugs in the great room to subliminally create a distinction of space in this open-concept floorplan, and to also round out a walk-through living space with some poufs for added seating. The home features a unique niche off the eat-in kitchen that makes for a perfect at-home office. By incorporating floating shelves for display, built-in storage, a desk, and a bassinet to watch the little one, the work-at-home photographer can wear multiple hats as a rockstar parent and #BestBossEver.

A striking Calacatta quartz island with a waterfall edge adds a sleek touch to the ebony kitchen, and honey-toned wood-look flooring complements and warms up the space. The master suite is full of earth tones and tactile texture, and we used a crisp white shutter on the bed wall window to add elevated sophistication while camouflaging into the board and batten wall treatment. The children’s bedrooms are whimsical and playful, with a geometric paint treatment and alphabet rug in the nursery, and a Batman-themed space for a budding superhero ready to save the day!
