Project Highlights

Chameleon Design Featured Project: Belvedere Plan C1-B, Irvine

For Belvedere Plan C1-B at Central Park West in Irvine, a loft-style space, Chameleon Design went for a young, hip and urban feel. The space has two and half walls and a column located right in the middle of room, but we wanted to create a somewhat private area. We utilized a metallic sheer fabric on a track to mirror the curved soffit and create a “peek-a-boo” office/media room. The curtain can either remain open to watch the flat screen TV while cooking in the kitchen, or it can be closed to allow for a bit of privacy.

We went with a curved sectional sofa to create a love lounge for the man who lives here to serenade his girlfriend with one of his guitars. Brick veneer was added to the living and bedroom walls to make the home more loft like and warm wood flooring and paint with pops of color made the home sexy and memorable.

 

 

Chameleon Design Featured Project: Belmont Plan 3, San Diego

With Belmont Plan 3, Chameleon Design’s aim was to create a warm and memorable home that would appeal to young buyers with a family.  We anchored the design with grey, weathered wood furniture and paired it with traditional upholstery, French flour sack accent pillows and dark iron and metal accents.  Warm wooden plank floors and cabinetry rounded out the look.

For decorative accents, a collection of white pottery and plates were placed on the open shelving and mirror in the dining area.  Botanicals created a headboard in the master and playful fashion sketches made a great back drop in the girl’s room.

Chameleon Design Featured Project: West Grove, Anaheim

For West Grove, we wanted to create a functional space for an established family.   The style we used was clean, mixed with a “West Elm” sensibility, which is appealing to buyers.  We used a simple, clean soldier-course tile layout, alternating mirrors on the long entry wall and neutral backgrounds.  All of those helped to expand the space, which has a living and dining room that’s on the smaller side and no established entry.  Organic elements and hints of goldenrod color added pizazz and special attention to the scale of furnishings helped with the size challenges. We also paid special attention to details such as Mom’s office in the kitchen and the “launch pad” re-charging station in the mud room.

 

 

 

 

Chameleon Design Featured Project: Lexington Plan 3, Valencia

The design and decor of Lexington Plan 3 in Valencia was geared towards the entertainment industry buyer. The plan is a family home with great rooms but no formal spaces. Chameleon Design took a modern eclectic approach with styling, which we know is great for active families.

The red brick wall in the flex space study creates a focal “moment” upon entry. Brick is already on the exterior and repeated inside as well on the family room fireplace. Concrete looking tiles, light taupe walls, warm espresso wood tones and lots of color pops create a modern, spunky, eclectic design. This home is perfect for a family with teenage kids, for it lends to a vibe that’s elegant and casual at the same time.

Chameleon Design Featured Project: Lexington Plan 2, Valencia

One of the newest trends in the housing industry is multi-generational living. Lennar has answered the demand by designing a home within a home that allows extended family to all live together- with private, separate living spaces. The unique floor plan includes a one bedroom apartment with its own entrance, bedroom, bath, kitchenette and living area. The apartment also has a lockable door that connects it to the house.

Chameleon Design was brought on to design the Lexington Plan.  The challenge was to create a comfortable spacious feeling, while about a third of the space on the first floor is taken up by the apartment within the home.   We were able to strike a balance between crisp and cozy with an updated farmhouse style.  The home is designed for a young family and a live in mother-in-law, so we liked the idea of being drawn in by the worn-in pieces, but didn’t want a flea market look.

We accomplished this by devoting some space to modern display.  The bonus room upstairs had clean framed game boards and the physical graffiti (this happened organically from pencils we left for the kids to draw with). Mom’s desk in the kitchen is a nice feature too.

Chameleon Design Featured Project: Valinda Plan 4, San Juan Capistrano

Chameleon Design worked with Woodbridge Pacific on this project.  The home is 3,817 square feet, five bedrooms and 4.5 baths.  The style is what we call an “Updated Hacienda.”  The colors are rich natural tones of caramel, copper, deep teal, cream and olive, and the floors are done with Moroccan pavers, tying the style together nicely.

My favorite thing about this home is the open kitchen which looks onto the Capistrano room (the 447 square foot outside room). I also love the family room which has an option to have a bonus room, shown in the photos below. It’s a wonderful family home.

Chameleon Design Featured Project: The Ridge Plan 8, Mission Viejo

The themes of The Ridge Plan 8 are urban contemporary and whimsical. We drew inspiration from Z-Gallerie for this model, using mixed modern and transitional furniture. The refined, bohemian look was pulled together with a color palette that included: purple, bone, mink, fuchsia, lime green, blue and teal. We used smokey, gray neutral fabrics with pops of colorful prints and whimsical, sculptural accessories. The end result was a glamorous, yet unconventional look that was a lot of fun.

Chameleon Design Featured Project: The Ridge Plan 7, Mission Viejo

The Ridge Plan 7 was done in a style called natural contemporary.  For the color palette we used  warm neutrals, stone grey, chamois and warm whites.  We brought in a lot of texture into the design to give it an organic feel, and also a bit masculine.  We used clean and modern upholstery and natural wood accents, such as the cocktail table made of wood slices to round out the earthy feel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chameleon Design Featured Project: Orange County Dream Home- Living Room

Chameleon Design was lucky to be a part of the ASID Dream Home this year.  The home was designed by over one dozen Orange County interior designers and Chameleon Design did the living room.  The Dream Home was on view from March 1-25th in Costa Mesa and benefited the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The Living Room design has a clean and modern feeling, with a color palette of natural wood tones, light neutrals and citron green and fuchsia accents.  We call the style “natural elegance.”  You will notice a balance of elements that evoke a modern feeling: natural woods, patina metal, sculptural plants, textured fabrics,  original art canvas’ and a reflective mirror.   The paint color is light grey and the floors are natural concrete in keeping with the modern style. The lighting consists of an overhead chandelier, directional tracks with art lights, two wall sconces and two floor lamps.

The sofa upholstery fabric is chenille with mohair and woven chenille pillows.  They are sitting on a grey mottled rug with a natural root ball table as the sculptural and focal element in the room.  The simple, clean lined floor lamps in metal and glass help create the symmetrical feel of the room.

Anchoring the seating area is a large metal faced fire place made from patina sheet metal.  The fireplace itself is a modern eco-smart firebox insert in stainless steel.  The fireplace needs no ventilation and uses a renewable energy source- bio ethanol and has clean emissions. Grey felt ottomans float in front of the fireplace for additional lounging or seating. On either side of the fireplace the walls are mirrored with full height mirror and natural sheer drapery.

The accessories include natural elements like a terrarium collection and crystals.  Universal design is considered and the furniture layout accommodates access thru the space between the doors.  An open area in the seating grouping allows a wheel chair to join in and a 5’ radius to turn is allowed at that point as well.
