Working again with Pardee Homes, the starting point for this project was the simple lines and minimalism that is synonymous with Scandinavian design. And since this space is located in (almost always) sunny San Diego, we wanted to keep the interiors bright, airy, and maintain a strong connection to the outdoors. We chose a color palette of crisp white and grays, along with deep teal and seafoam green accents that would reference nature and contrast with the light tones. And no Nordic-inspired space is complete without lots of light toned wood and modern furnishings and lighting.
To keep things interesting, we used black accents, graphic patterns, and a few unexpected details (blue terrazzo wallpaper and a floor to ceiling wine rack). And since this is Southern California, the outdoor space became a year-round extension of the home, with a wall of sliding glass doors that open to a lounge area.
Overall, this is a home that takes the best of minimal design, adds a touch of nature, and re-interprets it for a light and bright location.
