INSIDE SCV HOMES
A mis-managed previous remodel is ground for growth and opportunity in this unique master bedroom.
So many Santa Claritians can relate: What's the point of a sitting room, anyway? Says homeowner Shelly Whelchel, "Our sitting room ended up being a place we put our extra furniture that didn't really fit anywhere else. It wasn't special, it wasn't used often. It ended up just being a lot of wasted space."
Located right outside the Whelchel upstairs master bedroom and bathroom lies a grand master balcony. "It's a surprising amount of space - definitely enough to really take advantage of and make it feel like its own distinct room," explains homeowner Shelly Whelchel.
Interior designer and Owner of Clear Images Stephanie Laney has designed some of So Cal's finest homes over the last two decades, but this Woodlands retreat in Valencia is especially notable - because she's designed it twice. "My client has a beautiful home that we did the first time about 15 years ago," says Laney. "We decided it was time for a facelift. Rather than making big changes, we selected a transitional style to update the space. Though the kitchen and family room were the focus of the remodel, we stuck with what we already did for continuity while updating elements to better fit with their style today."
Gail and Marvin Smith have called their 4,900+ square-foot estate in Newhall "home" for over a remarkable-by-SCV-standards 35 years. In comparison to how old most of the pieces inside the formal French house are, though, that's just a drop in the bucket of life.
This may be our most wow'ing holiday home feature yet!
INTERIOR LOOKS
A mis-managed previous remodel is ground for growth and opportunity in this unique master bedroom.
"Designing a bathroom or powder room is the perfect opportunity to intimately reflect your personality and preferences," says Rebecca Johnston, owner of MIX by RJohnston Interiors. "Because of the relatively small space, you can invest more in materials and accessories that have a big wow factor. That designer wallpaper you covet may be $90+ a roll, but one roll might be all you need for your entire powder room. Even the most exquisite selections become a steal in small but impactful spaces. This is the place to really express yourself and what you love. It's just for you."
Life is better when you love where you live.
