Project Highlights

living room with blue rug and fiddle fig Townes at Magnolia Plan 2 Melia Homes

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!

The Nationals Recognizes Team Chameleon With 5 Silver Awards

There’s nothing like starting the new year riding a wave of celebration! Team Chameleon has had the privilege of completing several groundbreaking projects the past year with our incredible clients. It’s in this spirit of gratitude that we are so happy to announce that five of our projects are Silver Award winners at this year’s The Nationals awards. With recognition in three different categories, we are accepting these honors alongside our three wonderful builder clients- Brookfield Residential, Toll Brothers, and Woodbridge Pacific Group. Silver Awards represent top vote recipients in each category and are finalists for the coveted Gold Award.

The Nationals is an annual competition that’s hosted by the National Sales and Marketing Council of the National Association of Home Builders. It’s one of the most prestigious awards programs in the industry, honoring North America’s top talent in 65 categories across various disciplines in community and home design, marketing, and sales. A panel of judges selected finalists from entries across the country, and we are thrilled to be recognized among our peers.

To get ourselves amped for the awards season, we’re taking a walk down memory lane to revisit these Silver Award-honored projects.

living room at Signature PGA West Plan One in La Quinta, California

High Style in the Low Desert — Topaz Plan One

Nestled in the Coachella Valley and surrounded by the Santa Rosa Mountains, La Quinta is an idyllic desert playground for the jet set, snowbirds and festival revelers alike. It was with these buyers in mind that we approached the interiors of Topaz Plan One at Signature PGA West by Woodbridge Pacific Group in La Quinta. The scheme is sophisticated yet youthful with natural touches that connect to the warm hues of the surrounding terrain. Crisp white walls accentuate the vivid desert sunlight, while cool blues are reminiscent of the sparkling pool and sky. Bursts of orange offer up a playful contrast that’s full of energy. Blonde and honey-toned wood furnishings are used throughout the home and help ground the white’s ethereal feel. We layered color and pattern in unexpected ways in this model home for a vibe that’s spirited and joyful while undeniably chic. The resulting ethos is one of pleasurable contrasts that dials into the many reasons people seek to call La Quinta home — a casually elegant lifestyle that embraces leisure, adventure, and play.

living room at Rancho Palma Plan 6 in San Bernardino, California

Subtle Contrasts Reign Supreme at Rancho Palma’s Plan 6

Sweeping panoramic vistas uplift and enchant at Rancho Palma by Trumark Homes, a gated community nestled in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains in the Inland Empire, California. The muted yet refined colors of the surrounding terrain inspire the community’s Plan 6 model home, reflecting the spirit of outdoor adventure that awaits along jagged peaks and undulating hills only a short drive away. The home’s interior is a case study in subtle contrasts that creates a restful retreat with connections to the outside world. Our team was deliberate in our curated selection of natural materials and furnishings, like wood-encased mirrors, a jute rug, wood tables, and woven window shades. The living room looks and feels like a big hug with its textural elements infusing a cozy vibe that’s still refreshingly upscale. Here, contrasts are nuanced, like the interplay of sharp angles and rounded features. Tawny brown hues commingle with slate and onyx materials, offering a pleasing balance of warm and cool tones. Touches of burnt orange, a color reminiscent of late summer sunsets, suffuse throughout the bedrooms and loft. The effect is a lifestyle that’s sophisticated yet approachable and wholly inviting — a blend of cozy and modern for the at-home age where so many of us continue spending a lot of time in our living rooms, kitchens, and home offices.

Playful Sophistication in the Plan Two at Splash

Effortlessly chic and welcoming, the Plan Two model at Splash is thoroughly modern and full of personality. Its energy is only matched by its location at One Lake, a socially minded and outdoor-focused master-planned community in Fairfield, California. Complete with a lake clubhouse, boathouse for paddle boarding and easy access to wine country, this community is all about effervescent life. In Plan Two, a classically feminine palette gets reimagined with shades of rose blush, gray, and creamy neutrals. Understated elegance is found in the details, like curtains adorned with a delicate pattern, sofa pillows of various weaves and textures, and select matte black furnishings that anchor the eye as it travels throughout the open concept floor plan. Earthy and bohemian features, like a neutral jute rug and rattan seating, balance the spaces’ ethereal and dream-like quality, and highlight the unique wood and stone look of the tile floor. In the kitchen, soft gray shaker cabinets and warm gold hardware offer a pleasing contrast of cool and warm tones. The understated ethos continues throughout each room with shades of gray and rose, striking gold light fixtures, textured bedding, and lively patterned tilework.

Iridium Residence 3 Defines Desert Cool

With the addition of the pale cream tones resembling the arid desert landscape, this luxurious residence is sure to impress.

Upon entry into Residence 3, you are instantly welcomed by the great room, and its desert modern interior with luxe amenities and cool neutral furnishings. We included a unique bar area with a wine refrigerator and plentiful accessories to add a standout entertainment factor to the space. Moving through, a sense of balance is created with the simple shagreen coffee table and the dark, sculptural light fixture above, as well as the sleek black bar stools distinctly placed against the Calcutta Classique quartz island and matching backsplash.

With geometric patterns, modern abstract artwork, and sculptural accessories throughout, there is no corner that does not radiate modern desert chic.

The residence not only has a beautiful interior, but a relaxing outdoor oasis as well, complete with a pool and spa as well as the perfect patio for entertaining or late evening relaxation. The playful, geometric design of the patio furnishings keeps guests captivated, and the outdoor dining area is the perfect place to take in those cool desert nights.

Community Center at Jordan Downs in Watts, California

Redevelopment for Good — Jordan Downs Community Center

A distressed 1950s-era housing development is getting its much-deserved second act as a fully revitalized mixed-income community. Jordan Downs is a joint venture master-planned redevelopment by Bridge Housing and The Michaels Organization, located in Watts, California. We couldn’t be happier to partner with both incredible teams to help realize the vision of the community that preserves its historical roots while enhancing residents’ quality of life. Our team’s goal was to breathe new life into the master plan’s shared amenities through uniquely designed spaces that inspire connection and community, for everyone of all ages. A bright and colorful palette uplifts and inspires, and various seating arrangements offer a comfortable place for after-school activities, Girl Scout meetings, and other neighborhood events. Phase 1 includes one of several of the development’s community centers that aim to be sustainable and more energy-efficient. Phase 2 construction is currently underway and will open in December 2021. We are so thrilled to be working on this next chapter of the development which will include even larger community spaces to further provide residents with support, stability, and a place for recreation.
