I am so happy to feature my friend Kim’s (NorCal Style) California home today. Kim and I met through blogging and the first time I saw her home I was “gobsmacked” as my friend Debra would say. Kim remodeled a simple ranch-style home and gave it her modern chic stamp. I am absolutely amazed at what she accomplished. Grab a cup of coffee, you are going to love the Stylish Digs of Kim from NorCal Style.
Here is the oh so nor cal chic Kim on her front patio. I love the water-wise landscaping they did in their front yard.
Kim’s drought-tolerant landscape suits the style of her home. I might just mimic this in my next adventure.
I love Kim’s front door (especially the color) similar to mine. The door gives you a peek to what lies beyond. Don’t you love the doormat?
Here is the charming entry that greets you. And you know what they are awesome! Love the Serena and Lily bench and the white mirror. Kim has used many of Serena and Lilly’s casual coastal details in her design.
When they remodeled Kim opened up the entire space creating a seamless living area. On the left when you walk in is her gorgeous dining room. Maybe my favorite room in the house!
She has this beautiful built-in with antiqued mirrored tiles (genius) at the end of the dining area, which creates a dreamy place to dine day or night. I bet it has a gorgeous glow at night.
Also on the left past the dining room is this gorgeous kitchen. Love the bleached open shelving, the range tile and the Serena and Lily barstools add texture to the cold surfaces. Love every detail!!
Entering the front door is Kim’s uber-chic living space.
Love, love, love the gallery wall with the modern art and textural baskets.
Down the hall to the right is the bedroom/office wing. This is the swoon-worthy master bath. Love how she carried the same oak cabinetry and shelving in the bath for continuity. I love this anywhere but especially in a smaller home. The continuity of surfaces and details create a more seamless space.
The tub area….love!!
The boys bath she added matte black fixtures for variety, but continued the cabinetry. Note the pendant lighting similar to the kitchen. Again creating a seamless space.
The shower area.
Since I have gone crazy with pictures, we will move on to the pool bath/laundry area off the kitchen. I don’t think I have ever seen a more stylishly designed practical space.
Love so many of the details. Love the addition of the bamboo mirror for texture.
No space was left to chance.
Here are some cleverly styled spaces throughout the house for inspiration.
Bathroom shelf styling…perfection!
Master bedroom built in desk area.
I hope you enjoyed The Stylish Digs of Kim from NorCal Style. There are so many details you could incorporate into your own home. Thank you Kim so much for allowing us a peek into your fabulous home. You can find Kim at her blog Northern California Style, and on Instagram here. Kim has a great mix of travel, fashion, and home decor. You will love her style!
