In Menlo Park in the Bay Area, Regan Baker of created a bright, comfortable space for a young couple who craved some quirkiness in their single-family home. The renovated place features clean Scandinavian influences and eclectic details, including a colorful wall mural and built-in scratching tree for the couple's two cats. Here's a tour of the bright, airy home.
In the living room, natural wood tones pair well with a burst of color from the custom green side table. The wall light is from Artemide - Cuma.
Prints add excitement to the design in the form of a black-and-white Anthropologie armchair and a graphic rug from Peace Industry.
In the kitchen, the clients needed more space and storage options. To transform the space, Baker selected Ceaesarstone countertops and white oak shelves, along with Ashley Norton pulls, to match the reclaimed wood cabinetry, painted in a teal color from Sherwin Williams. The stools are from .
Textured details are a standout feature in the kitchen. Baker installed a backsplash from Heath Ceramics; the diamond tile over the stovetop is also from Heath Ceramics.
An eye-catching mural by Caroline Lizarraga serves as the central focus in the dining room. The legs of the dining table end in wheels so that the couple can also use the table outside on their deck. The clients also wanted an assortment of chairs, rather than matching ones, contributing to the eclecticism of the space. The overhanging chandelier is from Restoration Hardware.
The buffet was sourced at Resource Decor, and the candlesticks are from Monument.
To give the home a rustic ambience, Baker sourced the reclaimed wood beams from a company in Sausalito, California. The pouf is from Peace Industry.
