By Design // Coastal Canyon Project Reveal
Every project reveal is an exciting treat for us to share, but Coastal Canyon is a special one. It’s home to Anthony Rendon, third baseman for the LA Angels, and his young family. We’re Orange County natives and huge Angels fans, so this project was an exciting experience for us!
The Rendon’s had recently moved to the area and wanted someone to inject a lot of personality into their home and give it a bit of California flair. They loved our contemporary coastal aesthetic, and we were eager to marry our designs with their personal tastes.
This home had beautiful bones with a floor plan built around indoor/outdoor living, but since this house was one of several developer’s builds on the street, it was an empty canvas that needed a large injection of personality. We always love navigating the challenge of designing a home for a family’s unique tastes and needs with our contemporary coastal influence, and we were thrilled to create a space suitable for this young family to grow into and love for years to come.
We were sure to take advantage of the incredible grounds this property has to offer. With gorgeous canyon views and a dynamic layout that transitions seamlessly from the outdoors to the indoors, we created zones that would allow the family to sprawl into the backyard and courtyard, providing plenty of opportunities to entertain or just relax!
With fun furnishings and seating arrangements, we love how magical each outdoor space feels—perfect for everyday lounging and lots of entertaining!
Since the grounds of this home are a stunning mix of relaxed living and beyond-belief scenery, we needed an equally impactful entry to the home. We landed on a sophisticated exterior color that creates a bit of drama while still feeling neutral and fresh. Styling with another of our daybeds and plenty of greens, it feels like a seamless transition from the outdoors in!
Upon entering the home, you are greeted with a simple entry table and a hallway that leads to the great room. This space needed to be simple and practical to maximize the space, but also beautiful to set the tone for the rest of the home. We opted for a functional table to drop keys or mail and a must-have mirror for light refraction and last minute primping. To add some visual interest and provide a bit more functionality, we added these fun Fritze ottomans, which double as a seat to help put on shoes and as a striking visual element for the space.
Our favorite space in this home is the great room. Soaring ceilings and lots of breezy vibes make this space the hub of the home. The plush sectional and upholstered ottoman fill the space and, along with the rugs, provide soft contrasts to the stunning mantel and surrounding shelving.
In the infancy of this project, the family expressed they wanted a place that was cozy and filled with California flair. We played up neutrals throughout the home to bring warmth and create a sense of casual sophistication with our signature relaxed and clean aesthetic. And were sure to bring in a lot of greenery to make a seamless transition from the outside in!
Because this house is so large, we needed to add some architectural details, like arches and stucco in the great room, to fill out the walls and make the space feel homey. We kept the original flooring but softened it up with rugs and large furnishings. The massive couch maximizes room for entertaining, and the upholstered ottoman not only fills out the space, but is a great piece to have around the young kids with its soft edges and durable surfaces.
Coming off from the great room, the kitchen and dining area is equally open and large scale with its oversized island tall ceilings. To accentuate the features and add a unique flair, we brought in plaster like the arches in the great room and treated the range hood to become a focal point and tie the two rooms together.
We continued the neutral palette into this space, but added the dark elements of the island cabinets and kitchen countertops to bring contrast and balance to the area.
We wanted to make a bold statement in this smaller space, so we opted for a rich and earthy color palette with a variety of textures. The olive zellige is tiled up to the ceiling for a feature wall that demands attention. The moss colors are echoed in the leaf art opposite the mirror for a lush look that complements the dark woody cabinets.
A room off the entry was originally an office, but we were able to repurpose it as a fun playroom for the kids! The family loves having everyone together on the main floor, so we made sure to integrate a space that was functional and cute.
Adding an arch to the doorway to match the others throughout the house and a built-in bench gave the room interesting structural detail. A bunch of playful pillows and artwork makes this nook super kid-friendly and fun!
Because the Rendons split their time between California and Texas in the off season, they needed a space to have family and friends stay when visiting. We wanted to create a guest suite that felt like a vacation itself, with coastal influences and lots of luxe elements like plush pillows and a dreamy bed. This guest retreat is the perfect spot for visitors to unwind and enjoy all that a California destination has to offer!
No matter the size of a house, we love to create a master bedroom that feels like a private retreat. We kept all the colors and materials neutral to ensure a calm and soothing atmosphere, but utilized a nook for both the Mr. and Mrs. to attend to meetings and conference calls—working from home isn’t so bad when you have a dedicated and personal space to do it!
The goal for this design was to create a seamless transition between the outdoors and the interior, we added lots of greenery to the master lounge. Every window you look out of is filled with foliage! Framing nature and cozying the exterior living spaces with soft furniture and plenty of creature comforts transform this space into a getaway destination.
And finally, perhaps the most relaxing spot in the entire home, the tub in the master bathroom is nothing short of perfection. Framed by a window with more incredible green views, this nook provided a design opportunity to create a spa-like retreat—with a deep soaking tub and mood lighting, it’s easy to bathe the day away in this oasis.
