A Monochrome Dream at Zest Plan 4

Nothing is sweeter than the new community of Zest by Trumark Homes. Nestled on the grounds of a former historic California citrus factory in the prime SoCal location of Covina, this community offers customizable flats and townhomes. The coolest residence yet is Plan 4, which features a dramatic black-and-white color scheme with minimalist touches of soft gray. Contemporary and rounded furnishings adorn each room in this home, tastefully accompanied by a variety of patterns that play off one another. We’ve layered these intriguing elements with eye-catching focal walls that draw you in—like the bold black millwork statement wall in the master bedroom. This home design is perfect for a young professional wanting an edgy yet sophisticated abode. The flex space offers comfortable quarters for working at home and is also a great space to create an exercise oasis. This retro-contemporary home has it all—enticing boldness with all the comforts of home.

Chameleon Design team raising a glass to 30 years

Raising Our Glass to 30 Years

We’re breaking out the bubbly because team Chameleon is celebrating the firm’s 30-year anniversary! We’ve been on cloud nine this year, as it was on April 2, 1992, that our fearless Founder, Eve Lowey, opened Chameleon Design’s doors with the goal to create an exceptional design firm that catered to homebuilders and residential developers. Since then, it has been our privilege to serve hundreds of clients to help them create bespoke model homes, sales offices, and amenities across the country.

“Thirty years, there’s so much to be thankful for,” says Eve. “Our fantastic clients and amazing team are the best in the business. Chameleon Design wouldn’t be where it is today without them!”

From the beginning, our leadership team sought to create a safe and welcoming culture for experienced and emerging designers, inviting unique perspectives and creativity. We’re constantly inspired by our clients and the beauty of the world around us. It’s from this wellspring that our team raises the bar higher and higher each day and why we’ve been recognized with more than 170 prestigious industry awards and glowing client accolades.

“The Chameleon team is second to none and I could not imagine working with anyone else for our design needs. Their eye for design speaks for itself, and the level of service they provide is outstanding. They push us to take risks, are flexible when we throw them curveballs, and are never satisfied with good-enough. They are one of the most important pieces of the Woodbridge Pacific team and it is a privilege to work with them.”

Townes at Magnolia Reinvents SoCal Style

The perfect southern California experience awaits at Townes at Magnolia, a collection of 3-story contemporary townhomes in Anaheim, California. With bountiful amenities such as fire pit gathering areas, BBQ grills, recreation areas and more, residents can always make the most of the blissful California sunshine. In a central location near Disneyland and Angel Stadium, and with the beach just a short drive away, adventure and fun are a weekend staple for residents, both in and out of this Melia Homes community.

Despite the OC locale and enticing proximity to the beach cities, buyers desiring their own coastal haven can find it in Townes at Magnolia Plan 2. This 3-bedroom model home offers much in soothing chic aesthetic and unique accents. Upon walking into the home, potential buyers will be delighted to find a memorable painted barn door leading into the guest bedroom. Serene blue paneling and beach-themed artwork make this space a calming paradise. The serenity continues throughout the home on the upper levels, with azure blues and beiges throughout the living areas and trendy furnishings with plenty of natural materials. Each room has something to catch the eye, whether it’s a paneled accent wall, blue, textural tiling, or a pop of colorful paint. The result is a casual and breezy atmosphere that leaves a buyer dreaming of taking a vacation right in their very own Anaheim home.

It’s Easy Being Green at Dover at Compass Bay’s Plan 1

If a breath of fresh air came with a design style and color palette, the Plan 1 model home at Dover at Compass Bay by Trumark Homes would be it. This dreamy home’s Newark, CA, locale is perched along the San Francisco Bay with nearby access to the area’s waterfront and wildlife refuge. Bright and breezy are hallmarks of our approach to this four-bedroom home that appeals to growing families. Our infusion of soothing neutrals with youthful bursts of lime and lemon refresh and uplift each room. Wall paneling, organic materials and textures add dimension, and high-contrast black light fixtures, tiling, and accents anchor and round out the home’s modern and inviting design. Here, everyone in the family has their own space to work and relax — the well-appointed home office features plenty of built-ins and natural light, and a playful kids’ loft is the perfect spot to do homework or watch TV. We especially love how the various shades of green create a sense of energy and vitality. Even the laundry room got a colorful wall treatment because a home’s corners and alcoves should look and feel special!
