STRIPPED TO THE STUDS - AN INTERIOR REMODEL IN CENTRAL ORANGE COUNTY
Exline Design & Architecture (EDA) worked closely with this homeowner to completely revamp a very outdated residential interior. This 1970s Southern California home was stripped to its studs and redesigned. Opening the existing kitchen to the adjacent family rooms was the focal point of the design. Integrating level changes with a new custom bar skewed from the orthogonal grid brought a contemporary flair to a previously tired space. Reorganizing the grand stair and adding custom millwork to the entry hall also brought an updated welcome-feeling to the home's entry first-impression. Custom wood work and finished carpentry detailing were considered carefully to maintain an expression in-keeping with the traditional and somewhat colonial expression of the home's existing exterior.
The master bedroom, master bath, and spacious dressing room were also focal points of the design. Custom dark mahogany built-ins brought a rich and varied elegance to the master suite. Reorganizing the master bedroom's floor plan brought a much-needed elegance to the interior's expression and took full advantage of the home's existing window placement. Stone finishes throughout the bath updated the suite to a newer contemporary yet warm traditional feeling. Reformed ceilings with perimeter dropped soffits, unique millwork, and custom cabinetry all worked in concert with first-class finishes that were primarily selected by the owner. The overall effect brought this impressive home to a current and revitalized sense of spacious, gracious, and comfortable living.
