Los Altos Luxury
This beautiful home was previously designed in a Tuscan motif incorporating reds, golds, and greens. The owners were ready for a change. With careful attention to color theory, the palate was slowly transitioned to a cooler palate of blues, and grays with some warmer elements of brown and yellow.
The goal was to transition slowly so that the house would be livable throughout the transformation. Navy replaced red walls in the office and dining room. New window treatments gave a fresh look and the owner's extensive art collection was highlighted. We were able to use much of the owners existing furniture updating and reupholstering as needed.
This beautiful inherited cabinet felt heavy in this home until it was paired with a similarly heavy mirror. Painting the handrail black created a visual line up the staircase where family photos are featured.
This homeowner always wanted plush blue sofas but was worried about fading. We selected a solution dyed acrylic fabric which is soft and luxurious and will also resist fading for years. Paired with the couple's original art plus prints that we relocated from another area in the home, the living room is definitely inviting and comfortable.
Red wallpaper was removed from the walls in this dining room and navy paint was applied to create a dramatic space. This snapshot shows progress but not the final outcome.
Removing outdated window coverings lightened this kitchen and adding an inexpensive but lovely rug makes this kitchen feel welcoming and finished.
Changing the walls in the office from red to blue and adding natural woven window coverings throughout the home updated this masculine office and increased the natural light.
As part of the refresh of this home, we decided to paint most of the walls a soft beige which created unity throughout the home. Woven natural shades were incorporated and in the main, we added drapery to create a vertical line and also softness. The bedding was lightened with pillows for a focal point.
Transforming this girls bedroom into a grownup guest room was fun and allowed us to use the homeowners original art. Walls were changed from bright pink to a soft beige.
A new upholstered bed in this guest room helped to create a fresh feeling. Bright yellow walls were painted a soft beige to create a welcoming relaxing space. A new rug was selected and bedding was added to create a soft monochromatic palette.
