Simplicity can be beautiful. That's the thought behind this Santa Clarita yard, filled with simple lines, organic elements and plenty of space to entertain.
Modern design is softened with organic additions and delicate textures.
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!
On Saturday, September 22, Preston and Nicole Geeting presented the perfect late summer evening soiree for their gathering of guests in celebration of their Stevenson Ranch home's first hillside vineyard harvest. Nine varietals - four of white, plus five of red that are necessary to craft a French Bordeaux - bore their first fruits, a symbol of the loving labor invested in the outdoor space.
The Santa Clarita home of John and Michelle "Shelly" Whelchel was bought "as is," which, a decade later, Shelly only partially jokes, "is never a good idea." "It was a struggle to get everything going. This was a really misunderstood home, but we saw an opportunity to make it beautiful." Upgrades went slow, thanks to unforeseen expenses hiding behind the buttoned-up exterior.
Matt and Nicole Dierckman hired my RRI interior-design team to create spaces that reminded them of their home away from home, Ojai Valley Inn. The popular getaway is the perfect mix of modern Mediterranean with a touch of farmhouse - a perfect partner to their SCV abode.
What we love: Open, airy spaces!
In many ways, Santa Clarita feels like summer most of the year; our springs and falls are traditionally temperate, if not downright warm. Maybe that's why we fall hard for interior and exterior looks that celebrate this season year-round. From juicy prints to bold landscaping, summer's best looks are a perfect match for the place we love to call home.
The Machado family's Tesoro Encanto home, beautifully situated on a 13,000-square-foot flag lot at the end of a cul de sac, is often the beginning of something special, thanks to the expansive tropical escape in the backyard.
Jacque and Eric Stroh's Tesoro home is a study in beautiful contrast, fusing soft, organic details with modern elements of design and functionality. The outdoor space best displays this philosophy, combining elements like elegant water features with handmade brick, smooth granite and wood accents.
A wowing remodel has completely rejuvenated this Santa Clarita home, thanks to the detail-oriented work of Randal G. Winter Construction, Inc. The full-service company raised ceilings, moved the laundry room upstairs, removed walls to create more flowing spaces, installed double doors, swapped out flooring, totally revitalized the kitchen and baths, and so much more. The process was painstaking in its scheduling and required great care. The results speak for themselves.
This Macmillan Ranch estate is a study in organic rustic refinement - a mixture of gleaming stonework, hand-scraped wood floors, exposed wood-grain beams and artistic renditions of nature. Surrounded by gorgeous greens and gardens, , the home recently went into escrow with Sand Canyon real-estate expert Morgan Gonzalez.
When one thinks of Santa Clarita, the beautifully under-developed space that is Circle J Ranch rarely comes to mind, but not for lack of interesting homes, people and stories. In reality, the area is arguably one of the finest locations in the SCV to call home. The combination of an authentic agrarian feel with the near-by proximity of the city has proven to be persuasive for a multitude of families. And after your introduction to the home of Toni and Patrick Navas, you'll see why.
In 2018, we resolved to live prettier. Our inspiration? These local homes!
Two years ago, my team and I designed this home top to bottom with a chic farmhouse aesthetic - and now we're back... just in time to bring a fresh new take to that old-time Christmas feel!
