After living in the home for 30+ years, raising children who now bring the grandchildren to the home, these clients wanted a refresh of their 1964 California Ranch home. The goal was to replace the dated, traditional interiors of carved marble mantles and honey stained oaked floors with a modern take on California living that would include an open floor plan, wood-look porcelain floors and a completely new, expanded chef’s kitchen. Only 2 client requests: keep the neutral color scheme and the new island needed to be walnut. Architect Richard Diaz took several walls down and reconfigured the public spaces into one large great room. The new layout includes a formal living room at one end with the dining room and kitchen running along the back side of the home looking on the pool and backyard. HD, worked closely with the clients to choose finishes like interior and exterior paint colors, doors, hardware, hard surfaces, cabinets, countertops and furnishings.
