With a ceiling clad in western red cedar light-filled contemporary bedrooms and a calming atmosphere this home in San Mateo California reinvents the iconic Eichler home design in its own inimitable fashion!
Using a neutral color palette for your home is much harder than it looks. Getting it right is all about finding the right combination of colors and just enough excitement to ensure that the interior does not feel bland and boring.
The open living area also contains the kitchen and the dining room. Three of the four old bedrooms were transformed into serene contemporary bedrooms and a guest room while the additional room was turned into a home office.
With an L-shaped structure there is plenty of room here for a fabulous rear garden and poolscape that was shaped by Arterra Landscape Architects. The pool becomes a part of the interior thanks to the series of large sliding glass doors and walls that make up a continuous and transparent ‘wall’ delineating the interior from the outdoors.
While homes that are solely clad in neutral hues and earthen tones often lead to monotony and boredom this Latvian delight beats the trend by using smart lighting and pops of bright yellow to enliven the setting.
