Earlmar: California Contemporary Cape Cod

The Saloner Family
Cheviot Hills, CA
Our aim for this home was to completely elevate traditional cape cod elements and infuse a big of California cool. We used a lot of darker tones on the interior instead of the typical white and light grey that tends to blanket this style of home. Exposed beams, big bifold doors, and geometric tiles help bring in a local California vibe that stays true to the region. Even though the façade looks very traditional, the interior of the home is contemporary from head to toe. Our design scope included floor plans, exterior detail including the pool cabana, all doors & windows, and reflected ceiling plan (electrical plan), hand-selected finishes, fixtures, plumbing, and hardware. Look for standout elements like the horizontal shiplap leading up the staircase wall, the warm wood cabinetry in the kitchen, the board and batten accent wall in the master bedroom, and the gorgeous use of stone throughout the home in fireplaces, bathrooms, countertops, and floors.
This home was designed for a developer client so we gathered feedback from buyers in the market and put our own twist on the traditional trends you tend to see inside so many homes in this neighborhood.

You definitely can't judge this home by its cover. The exterior is so classic and stately, but the interior is playful, modern, and vibrant!
