Project Highlight: Reverie, Plan 3, Rancho Mission Viejo, CA

It’s not a dream! Chameleon Design worked with William Lyon Homes to bring Reverie to life for homeowners drawn to comfortable, spacious living in Rancho Mission Viejo. We were inspired by Reverie’s farmhouse architecture and carried the style indoors.  To curate the right lived-in vibe, we mixed elements from traditional farmhouse as well as coastal design – including distressed furniture, a soothing palette of earthy neutrals and washed-and-worn blues, and natural materials – to convey comfortable casualness.

Project Highlight: Skye by Woodbridge Pacific Group, Plan 4, Palm Springs, California

 The Skye’s the Limit in Palm Springs

Paying tribute to Desert Modernism, Skye by Woodbridge Pacific Group lies within walking distance of downtown Palm Springs and the foothills of the San Jacinto Mountains. Chameleon Design chose to boldly honor these icons when the developer extended the opportunity to model possibilities for this newly built luxury midcentury modern enclave. True to the design history of this former Hollywood playground, Chameleon Design embraced the indoor-outdoor entertaining by emphasizing exterior details, such as the many different types of entertaining areas in this pool and courtyard in the front of the home. Inside, a rich assemblage of warm neutrals and sleek finishes creates a masculine tone that is intertwined throughout. The lounge/bar is set off by a feature wall of large format 59″ x 118″ porcelain tile and the great room fireplace feature wall has two tiles that elude classic midcentury modernism. Throughout, you can find collections of original art from local artists and antique stores, minimal accessories and accents that create the sophistication of Desert Modernism. The design also makes the most of voluminous spaces, with oversized and specialty lighting that highlights kitchen, dining and retreat spaces.

Project Highlight: Celadon at Parasol Park, Plan 2, Irvine, California

A Midcentury Escape within the Great Park Neighborhoods

Meet Celadon at Parasol Park. Is it a midcentury escape or minimalist’s dream ensconced in picked-from-nature textures and colors? We believe it’s the best of both. Chameleon Design brought out the bones and beauty of these attached townhomes and detached condo-style homes in Irvine, accenting the crisp white shiplapped walls and light-embracing layout with a delicate desert palette of sand, linen, brown and white. Calming décor connect neutral silhouettes while anchoring wood and linen textures with metal pendant lights and lamps bases. Area rugs bearing geometric patterns break up an otherwise monochromic expression of midcentury-meets-minimalist design, just as sleek gray kitchen cabinets enhance porcelain limestone-look flooring. Residents can entertain guests in the spacious living room or outdoor on the hammock-hanging veranda.

Project Highlight: Mason, Plan 2, Playa Vista, CA

Beachy, Dreamy and Extremely Modern

Meet Mason in Playa Vista. Is it a beach escape or a city enclave? We say both – although homebuyers in this Westside Los Angeles community simply call it a modern dream. Brookfield Residential engaged Chameleon Design to bring this coastal brownstone to life. We chose a spectrum of beachy colors to adorn the wood floors, linen upholstery, woven accents and exposed brick walls, and relied upon a shock of abstract art and a sampling of chandeliers and pendant lights for a modern take on coastal living. Residents can entertain effortlessly on the deck or retreat to a chaise lounge in their master bedroom. Even a blue barn door – a nod to the Pacific Ocean – is meant to evoke the natural wonders outdoors while providing privacy inside.

Project Highlight: Hillcrest for Woodbridge Pacific Group, Plan 4, Chino Hills, CA

A Family Retreat

This rustic modern oasis at Hillcrest for Woodbridge Pacific Group in Chino Hills is well-suited for families with young children looking to move up from their starter homes or empty nesters seeking to downsize. Chameleon Design employed neutral hues of caramel, linen, sand and smoke create to buffer from the hustle and bustle beyond the front door. The spacious staircase, warm wood design aesthetics and wood-like porcelain flooring appeal equally to modernists and vintage lovers. At the center of it all is an open kitchen displaying stainless steel appliances, light gray cabinets and slate countertops – just waiting for a cook’s loving touch and creative flourishes.

Project Highlight: Poppy at New Haven, Plan 3, Ontario, California

Reclaiming Vintage Modernism

Any first-time buyer or young family will agree they want a modern home with a vintage aesthetic and this four-bedroom space at Poppy at New Haven provides that and more. A clean palette of henna, stone grey, creams and white create a neutral backdrop with white shaker cabinets as the kitchen showstoppers. Grey scrubbed wood plank floors provide instant appeal paired with nature elements of feathers, driftwood and potted cacti. With a vibrant splash of poppy throughout the family-centric rooms, nursery, and downstairs guest bedroom, first-time buyers may never leave.

Dreamy, Beachy and Extremely Modern

Brookfield Residential tapped Chameleon Design to help set the stage for modern families living in the west side of coastal Los Angeles. At Mason in Playa Vista, we designed a contemporary, masculine scheme by incorporating smoky wood cabinets and paneling details for the mainstage entry and living room. We also invited nature in by grounding gray walls with tiles that appear like wood and continued this theme by selecting modern wood furniture and brown leather accents. The downstairs studio is just right for mom to use as a hub for hobbies or dad to watch the big game without interruption.

Project Highlight: Skye, Pool View South, Palm Springs, California

Care for a Martini?

Any fan of Palm Springs knows two things: The desert oasis is a mecca for snowbirds and creatives, and it’s synonymous with midcentury modern style. Chameleon Design built upon these archetypes to help Woodbridge Pacific Group present Skye, a new community located within walking distance of downtown Palm Spring’s vibrant shopping and restaurant district. The spacious, well-designed floor plans with luxury finishes provided the ideal backdrop for our design, which includes all the details required for a Mad Men-style happy hour. Inspired by the desert color palette, we incorporated punches of tangerine, citron and turquois to complement the glossy white modern flat panel cabinets and large format, white porcelain tile we selected. With a space focused on entertaining, the only thing a homeowner will have to decide is whether to serve martinis poolside or in the outdoor den.

Project Highlight: Celadon at Parasol Park, Plan 4, Irvine, California

Midcentury Modern Meets 21st Century Family Life

The newest of the Great Park neighborhoods in Irvine, Celadon at Parasol Park stands out for its well-conceived designs for modern homebuyers leading busy lifestyles, including one floor plan just right for growing families with four children. The builder, William Lyons Homes, tapped Chameleon Design to envision an eclectic version of midcentury modern interior design for this model that is budget- and kid-friendly. The result is as appropriate for playtime as it is for cocktail hour, thanks to a mix of surprisingly affordable pieces that mimic vintage lines. We selected a fun and energetic color palette based on pops of color as a design solution with all-white walls. We also took the opportunity to play with shapes and finishes, such as the multisided coffee table and brass trunk in the living room or nubby pillows and a nightstand featuring a honeycomb-inspired façade in the master bedroom. From morning school bell to après-dinner entertainment – and the family moments that happen in between – this design is tailor-made for Southern California lifestyles.

Chameleon Design Featured Project // The Covey, Buena Park, CA

In partnering with William Lyon Homes to welcome homebuyers to The Covey in Buena Park, Chameleon Design captured the warmth and simplicity of the community’s farmhouse aesthetics by infusing calming shades of white, taupe and green – leading with Greenery, Pantone Color Institute 2017 Color of the Year. We reinforced this refreshing color palette by incorporating other design trends we believe you’ll see in architecture, interior décor and fashion this year, such as raw surfaces, organic materials, and unifying features like board and batten. The result is a thoroughly modern yet intrinsically familiar design ready for growing families, with plenty of room for entertaining effortlessly.
