California New-Construction Custom Home

This newly-finished custom home is a Modern Farmhouse with a coastal twist. Located in beautiful La Jolla, California, the property overlooks a valley with a serene ocean view. You could say this is a humble home – It’s beautiful on the outside with a classic curbside appeal, but what you don’t realize is that you’re about to walk into a grand foyer with custom wainscoting and a unique hardwood floor pattern. Keep going and it opens up to a completely open living room, dining, & kitchen floor plan with 11′ 6” custom coffered ceilings. The designer wanted every room in this house to have a WOW factor so every detail was treated with care and perfection. To top it all off you will find an organic greenhouse, which really puts this home in another category. But what really made this home was the people behind it. AGK Design Studio (make sure to follow them on Instagram) & The Meter Co. all had the passion to complete it in a timely manner, but also to finish it properly. Efficient teamwork and passion for design is what makes homes like this a showcase.

Get ready to pin your favorite interior photos and get inspired by the beautiful ideas this new home offers!

The kitchen also features transom windows placed over the cabinetry. This is a brilliant idea, especially if your home is located on a small lot and you have neighbors close by.

Glass Doors

Glass doors were placed only on this cabinet and I am a big fan! Less glass, less time spent cleaning them! Jokes apart, notice the beautiful door details. Also, placing only white dinneware accentuates the Maple cabinetry.

The bathroom features double vanity with a center tower. If you have kids, you know that creating a few inches of “separation” sometimes can avoid some serious drama!

Guest Bathroom

I’ll be honest with you… if I had to advise anyone in regards to bathroom and kitchen design, I would always say to stay neutral and classic. These are the two most expensive rooms to renovate and when you keep things classic like we see here, chances are that you will never get tired of it nor feel as if it looks outdated just after a few years. This bathroom is beautiful and current but it doesn’t scream any trend and that’s how a well-designed space should be.
