A Modern-Day California Ranch House

The low-slung facade of this ranch home is clad in stone that blends with the surrounding California landscape. Double doors at the entry are sleek, gray and modern, giving a hint at the interiors beyond them. Native plants are minimal and easy to maintain.

Sophisticated, Neutral Transitional Dining Room

A chandelier encircled by a metallic drum shade provides a dramatic focal point in this transitional California dining room. A sinuous wood dining table has a shiny metal base, marrying rustic and modern elements. Inset marble takes the place of a rug, and a series of architectural photographs propped on the Zebrano wood built-in cabinets give the room added depth and dimension.

Open Transitional Neutral Living Space

A central two-sided fireplace and a back wall swathed in a broad expanse of glass give a nod to midcentury design in this California ranch home. Shimmering tile that wraps around the structural fireplace brings a touch of modern glam. Large-scale architectural photos in the dining room give the space added depth.

Contemporary Kitchen With Teardrop Pendant Lights and Sleek Striato Marble Island

A striking Striato marble island and two-toned modern cabinetry create a showstopping kitchen in this Los Angeles-area home. Five mercury-dipped pendants illuminate the island's dining surface, and three bold blue barstools provide a great perch for dining or chatting with the cook. Concealed and built-in appliances streamline the space.

Corner Dining Nook With Tufted Bench and Striped Chairs

A curved, modular, button-tufted settee serves as a roomy banquette in this transitional dining space. Striped fabric on the chair back and throw pillows is a nice visual tie-in, and a lampshade-style pendant is stylish and functional. A dark circular table provides good contrast against the light color scheme while complementing the shape of the settee.

Transitional Breakfast Room With Rounded Bench Seating

Button tufting gets a modern-day update in this California breakfast room. Striped fabric on the chair back and throw pillows is a nice visual tie-in, and a lampshade-style pendant is stylish and functional. The dark wooden table provides a nice contrast to the light, neutral color palette and gray walls. 

Layering Adds Richness in Neutral Transitional Bedroom

A clean-lined upholstered bed is layered against a built-in upholstered panel, giving this transitional California bedroom depth and polish. Large-scale art leans against one wall for a casual vibe, and a plate-glass window offers stunning views of the lush yard. A petite tufted bench and graphic pillows bring a punch of rich color.

Transitional Nursery Fit for a Princess

Soft pink walls carry into every detail of this sweet transitional nursery, from the bedding to the modern artwork to the petal-like blades of the ceiling fan. A magenta Roman shade is crisp at the window, and a heavy blue velvet bergere grounds and balances the space.

Modern Bath Is One With the Outdoors

A wall of glass separates the tiled walk-in shower of this modern California bathroom from a sleek, sophisticated freestanding tub. A glass exterior wall joins the room to the outdoors and offers a view of a tiny private courtyard. Modern tile swathes the shower floor and continues to the ceiling for extra impact.
