There was a total of 5 homes that were being built. My client consisted of 3 partners, husband, wife, and sister. Joe, Christy, and Cathy joined together to build 5 brand new homes in Los Alamitos, Ca. They have developed multiple properties in the past and felt a need to get an expert in the field to assist with all of the hard surface selections such as tile, countertop, flooring, paint color, and cabinet material. They all agreed that they wanted each unit to stand on its own rather than using the same materials for each. Each of them played a role as partners, it was difficult to add designer to their already busy schedule. Christy with her busy dental practice, Joe already managing the contractors on site, and Cathy living an hour away and had other priorities to attend to. They all agreed to a modern style and all materials must come in BUDGET!
After meeting with Joe, Christy, and Cathy I developed a clear vision for each unit. I imagined each unit and the homes future owners.
Model 4, is a 4 bedroom home. With this particular one, I wanted to meld a touch of traditional and modern. Appealing to a family that is older with kids that are in their tween and teen years. I went with high contrast using rich color cabinets and light man-made countertops. Knowing this house would appeal to a larger family that would most likely be active I intentionally selected tile flooring and quartz countertops. Both of which are easy to clean and durable for a busy family lifestyle.
