Project Description


Tucked into the beautiful Brush Creek neighborhood of northeast Santa Rosa in the heart of the Sonoma County Wine Country, this home went from dated and uninviting to a warm modern farmhouse.

A tranquil gray and crisp white paint scheme with Craftsman inspired moldings and crown molding; a white kitchen with a blue island, glass front upper cabinets and open shelving. The herringbone tile backsplash and linear brushed nickel pulls ties tradition and modern together!

Throughout are white doors with black hardware; modern brushed gold chandeliers grace the open beam ceilings over a mix of contemporary and vintage furniture. Textural area rugs ground the furniture groupings creating family and compact home office spaces.

The new master bedroom has double white barn doors to the bath and a fabulous Mongolian Lamb bench at the foot of the gray washed, upholstered nailhead bed. Fresh white bedding, a large scale paisley rug and warm brass bedside lamps complete the look. Gray and white baths are warmed by rustic wood framed mirrors and patterned concrete-look tile floors; base notes are provided by contrasting grout and black plumbing on white subway tiles.

  • Tone on tone colors create a soft, tranquil vibe
  • Focusing on textural changes rather than bright colors further supports a rich, but subtle aesthetic.
  • The addition of soft wood and leather elements ground the color palette, creating enough contrast to feel warm and inviting.
  • Organic accessories like turned wood vases and woven baskets keep the white on white color palette from feeling overly stuffy and formal.
