This Mediterranean-style home was completely reimagined by architect Mark Radford in collaboration with Intimate Living Interiors, located in Rancho Santa Fe, San Diego County, California. Encompassing five bedrooms, six-bathroom and two half bathrooms, this home needed to meet the lifestyle needs of a busy family of five.
The designer removed a lot of the texture in the home to enhance the aesthetics and make the living spaces feel elevated. Integrating proper lighting into each room such as sconces, overhead fixtures and LEDs helped to create a different mood in each room. The team also worked to reconfigure spaces to meet the family’s needs, such as transforming a home bar into a cozy reading nook.
What We Love: This Mediterranean-style home was stripped away of its heavy millwork to provide a peaceful sanctuary for a family of five. Living spaces are decorated with stylish details throughout, elevated yet comfortable enough for everyday family living. There are so many notable details in this home, yet what caught our eye the most was the beautiful kitchen. The heart of the home, there is so much functionality in this space, ideal for cooking, lounging, and entertaining.
