Nestled in the charming community of Rancho Santa Fe, California, our newest #mgdxranchosantafe project balances family-friendly living with elevated design. Today, we’re revealing the home’s entry, formal living room, dining room, study, and powder bath, along with all the thoughtful design choices that make these spaces truly special. With a focus on timeless style and attention to detail, this home is perfectly curated to be warm and inviting. Keep scrolling to see the stunning details of our first Rancho Santa Fe reveal!
The home’s original architecture had beautiful espresso toned beams throughout the home, an aspect that we all really wanted to keep. It was one of the details that really drew the client to the home. We love the sense of character they evoke and how they add warmth and depth to each room. The entry hallway leads to many of the primary rooms in the home, including the formal living room, dining room, office, powder bath, and atrium.
Adjacent to the entry and study is the formal living room. This space really helps set the tone stylistically for the rest of the home, juxtaposing the original wood ceiling and beams with a more traditional marble fireplace. Flanking the fireplace are two curved consoles with oversized antiqued mirrors, as well as a pair of aubergine and terracotta sofas. A custom wool rug incorporates a subtle textured pattern to soften the room and balance the formality of a living room with the livability of a young family. The french doors lead to the sprawling backyard with beautiful views of the pool and casita.
Another charming architectural element from the home are the original archways that lead to a few of the common spaces. Heading into the dining room, the space is perfectly framed off of the formal living room and anchored with a one-of-a-kind oak chandelier. Our clients sought to achieve a family-friendly dining room layered with interesting vignettes, textures, and materials. Lastly, we sourced a vintage rug alongside paper mache vessels, upholstered end chairs, and woven dining chairs.
As you head into the study, rich espresso stained cabinetry and coffered beams create a moodier tone. To soften the room, we added a light gray textured wall covering to the walls and ceiling. We further lightened the space with linen drapery that leads to the atrium. The statement fireplace is paired with a clean, modern lined sofa, an upholstered ottoman, and a pair of conversational lounge chairs. The shelves are filled with artifacts and collectibles from our client’s travels as well as his Ivy League college days.
Next is the gorgeous powder bath. This space needed minimal updating from the previous owners and was made even more special with vintage sconces, a statement mirror, and original mixed media artwork.
One of the most unique and memorable aspects of our clients property are all of the distinct outdoor spaces. While not all of the spaces were photographed, the property boasts six private patio areas off of many of the primary and bedroom spaces. The atrium here is adjacent to the study and serves as a tranquil retreat for our client to host casual meetings, take a phone call, or enjoy the California sun. One of our favorite architectural details is the original roofline that’s partially exposed to the Spanish tiles above. We added our special touches with a pair of outdoor pendants and outdoor furnishings!
