OCEAN RANCH, LAGUNA NIGUEL

A flood inspired the owners of this 1980’s home to update and minimize. Our restriction was that the homeowners did not want to use any color, so we needed to create a harmonious balance with the contemporary architecture using a palette of neutrals.

 

We opted for a “soft contemporary” feeling using moss green, pale green, soft brown, dark beige, and cream alongside dark wood in some rooms and pale driftwood in others. Texture, rather than pattern, creates visual interest in the rooms. Organic materials mixed with dark bronze metal details add a natural touch.

 

A fully automated home, lights, sound, and window coverings are all accessed by remote control. A state of the art sound system in the Media Room is confined in the room by special sound absorbing wall and ceiling materials.
