Murrieta Project Reveal Pt. 1

We are so excited to reveal Pt. 1 of our Murrieta Project. Sitting on the edge of the breathtaking Santa Ana Mountains, this newly renovated home offers stunning panoramic views of the landscapes and rolling hills.

Our design for this home started in 2021 when our client purchased this home with a view that can’t be beat, but the interior needed some love and character. We gutted the house, moved some walls in the kitchen and assisted in all construction selections, furniture, window treatments and accessory selections.


As you walk into the home, you are invited in through a beautiful arched entrance. You are welcomed into a calming environment that exudes warmth and character with clean finishes.


The floor plan of the project smoothly links the open concept living room with the rest of the home. You are immediately attracted to the calming natural stone fireplace we added to the space, lined with custom white oak cabinetry that is carried over into the kitchen for a flawless transition. Our client wanted cleanable fabrics for their dogs to be able to enjoy the space with them as well as comfortable seating. We mixed textures and tones with the lighter sofa, darker wood on the coffee table, lighter stained cabinets and the stone of the fireplace to create an organic space.


Our client’s move from MN to CA prompted the need for a new dedicated workspace to accommodate their work-from-home lifestyle in their new location. In addition to needing a functional home office, our client expressed the desire for a beautiful and inspiring backdrop to enhance their remote work experience in the comfort of their own home. The beautiful built in shelving offers ample storage and showcases stylish accessories.


In the kitchen you see the same white oak from the living room, which ties the spaces together and complements the natural elements of the space. The durable quartz countertops not only provide a practical surface for cooking and entertaining, but also offer a subtle yet sophisticated visual appeal to the room. The absence of window treatments showcases the breathtaking scenery and allows natural light to flood in, increasing the overall sense of openness and serenity in the space.


The contrasting back wall of cabinets serves a dual purpose, acting as pantry cabinets to provide ample storage for kitchen essentials, while also housing a convenient coffee bar to indulge in daily coffee rituals.

We hope you enjoyed Pt. 1 of our Murrieta Project reveal as much as we loved sharing it! Want to know more? Read Pt. 2 now – click here.
