Project Highlights

Catalan at Allevare Defines Casual Luxe

This elegant Catalan model home at Allevare by Toll Brothers elevates everyday living with thoughtful touches and refined features. The composition plays with contrasts layered with neutral hues and natural elements in this cozy and modern single-level home in Buckeye, AZ. Dark and light, hard and soft, and lines and curves mix with wood furnishings and nature-inspired textures. Dramatic wall paneling at the entry immediately sets the tone and draws the eye inward. Similar black paneling extends into the great room to unify both spaces and serve as a feature wall that houses both a fireplace and TV. Mid-century furnishings like a marble-topped hexagonal cocktail table, dining table and chairs, and buffet connect the kitchen, living room, and dining spaces. Area rugs, soft textures, lighting, and wall art establish a distinction between each room while showing the spaciousness of the smaller floor plan. When it comes to art, don’t be afraid to add a large-scale piece, like the abstract artwork we curated for the kitchen. It creates a stunning statement that elevates the feel of the room.

A large covered backyard patio traverses the length of the home and creates a seamless transition from inside to outside. Our team made every square inch count with multiple areas for dining, lounging, and socializing. The backyard is also accessible from the primary bedroom suite continuing the home’s modern and sophisticated styling. Textured grid wallpaper, a linen duvet, and an upholstered chaise lounge soften the masculine undertones of this comfortable retreat. Wallpaper is having a moment, and the team used patterned selections for impact in the home office and laundry room among honey and walnut tones and textural features. Who says these super-functional spaces can’t be cool!

Chameleon Takes Home the Gold for Plan 2 at The QUE

It’s time to celebrate! This year, our work for Plan 2 at The QUE by Woodbridge Pacific Group took home gold at The Nationals Awards in the category of Best Interior Merchandising of a Model Priced $500,000 to $600,000! The Nationals is the pre-eminent awards and honors program in homebuilding and interior design, representing some of the most creative and forward-thinking talent in both industries. It’s our version of the Academy Awards, and we can’t think of a better way to spread the cheer, than to revisit this fantastic award-winning home in beautiful Palm Springs!

We gave this three-bedroom model a bright white palette so the desert sunlight becomes an elemental design feature that bounces off surfaces and furnishings. Textural neutrals play up the sophistication with warm wood furnishings, like a glass-topped tree trunk cocktail table, striking driftwood sculpture, and chandeliers in bamboo and rattan that play up the volume of the ceilings. The open kitchen is clean and modern with clean white oak luxury plank porcelain pairing perfectly with two-toned cabinets in white and greige. The upstairs is full of opportunities for reflection and repose while enjoying a favorite cocktail as per Palm Springs lifestyles demand. Layered neutrals continue upstairs in both bedrooms. We kept the loft understated so its large windows bring the San Jacinto Mountain views into the space, creating a wondrous mural-type effect that blends the indoors and outdoors. With its refined luxury and modern desert vibe, it’s no surprise this coveted plan sold out quickly, and we couldn’t be happier that it’s been recognized with the highest honors by our industry peers!

Multi-Functional Spaces at Dover at Compass Bay’s Plan 4

The Plan 4 model at Dover at Compass Bay is a little modern masculine and a lot of casual luxury situated in the desirable city of Newark on the San Francisco Bay. Upon entry, you look through the dining area and into the great room. There is a lovely play of comfort, laid-back luxury, and masculine sophistication with the use of gray, black, and tan. Balanced with contrasts of textural and smooth, raw and refined that play off one another and encourage the eye to dance around the light-filled open-concept floor plan. A dramatic inky black wall and wood slice decor welcome you down the hall towards the garage entry/drop zone and beyond to the home’s main living areas.

Upstairs in the master bedroom, striking black tongue-and-groove paneling takes a turn three quarters up the wall, warm wood bedside cabinets, and a frosted glass chandelier offer moments of relaxation and repose. It wouldn’t be 2021 if we didn’t include some creative use of space, and multiple master closets allowed us to seamlessly integrate a stylish and cohesive workstation that can be more private when you close the black-framed sliding doors. The study room for parents and kids is a multi-purpose design done right. Kids can make the most of its layout with multiple workstations, a Zoom-worthy floating desk, and contemporary art background. The secondary bedroom and laundry room continue the calm and cool palette with warm wood touches, making this three-bedroom floor plan by Trumark Homes a welcoming retreat many families would love to call home.

Classic Cottage Style Gets a Modern Upgrade in Gardens Plan 3 at Lantana

This three-bedroom townhome, from the Gardens Collection at Lantana @ Beach by Brookfield Residential, lives large in all the right places, with a refined cottage style and carefully curated experiences throughout. Upon entry, we created a terrific school/work-from-home space in this “fun-sized” den. Your Zoom meetings are sure to be a hit with the powerful yellow & white patterned wallpaper and cleaver shelving as your backdrop.  The pegs create a pseudo drop zone for backpacks or coats and the buffet is a perfect place to grab the keys, grocery bags or dog leash on your way out. 

Pine wood luxury vinyl plank was used to create a larger more continuous feel on the second floor. Rustic white wash and pine pieces feel modern because of their clean lines. Crisp white, calming gray and vibrant yellow are super hot as Pantone’s Colors of the Year. The interplay of color and pattern encourages the eye to move around the room, and features like a textured sisal rug and raffia-wrapped bar stools add to the organic cottage style and contrast beautifully against the bright white kitchen. This soothing color scheme creates moments of relaxation and happiness! Sleep and rejuvenation is what the third floor is all about.  From the daughter’s room who loves horses and all things natural and free, to the son who loves camping in the wilderness and on into the master suite, complete with the right sized deck where you can enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine. It’s all the details in this striking townhome that create effortless Orange County living!

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.
