Meticulously designed by the one and only Brooke Wagner Design, this California home is practical and stylish at the same time. The interiors feel tailored but this doesn’t mean that they’re too precious. They feel inviting and were made for family life in mind. Here, the designer explains more about this project: “We designed it for a young family. It needed to be kid friendly, while also making their mom, who we call “fancy pants”, happy with her more glitz loving details. It is meant to be a gathering space for their extended family, and just a perfect home to grow up in.”
The house was originally built in 1969 and went through a complete renovation. The homeowner chose this home because it had a big backyard, which is very uncommon in Corona del Mar, California. The architect and builders transformed the outdated home into a modern masterpiece with plenty of room for this growing family of four.
I personally think this home perfectly combines beauty with comfort in a very fresh way. Get ready to be inspired!
The exterior of the home features vintage beams (backyard), stone veneers and wood paneling. The built-in planters encircle the two Melaleuca trees and double as seating. What a beautiful idea!
This is the kind of foyer that you step in and immediately feel your jaw slightly dropping… right?! 🙂 I absolutely love everything about it, from its ceiling height, to the millwork, the skylight and that stunning custom front door. Paint Color is Farrow and Ball All White in Estate Eggshell Finish.
The formal entryway was designed to set the tone for the home. The interior designer went with neutral colors, textures and mixed metals.
