Scale, color and Spanish-inspired charm come together to create a sophisticated Southern Californian dwelling. Home to a family of six, the Mission Ridge project is defined by its stylish and subdued design. Inspired by SoCal regional motifs, as well as the organic modern and transitional styles, the project by Nicole Green Design House has achieved a dreamy blend of west-coast style and tranquil touches.

Luxurious Lines
From the custom ceiling beams to the transfixing transitional black cabinetry, linear elements play a large role in Mission Ridge’s design. Vertical and horizontal, light and dark, we adore the depth and contrast that these lovely lines create in each space.

Charming Accents
Among our favorite features in the project are the Spanish-inspired accents, especially in the dining room with its mission-style ceiling and curved doorway. The canvas light fixtures invite texture into the space to create just the right amount of depth in this design. You can also see Spanish inspiration in the smaller details of the home, like wonderful patinated counter stools and textured vases.

Notable Neutrals
Upon entering this artful abode, guests are greeted with a welcomingly warm palette of muted wood finishes, cream accents and subtle texture that exude a stylishly serene feel. Natural light brightens most of the home during the day, giving the elegant entryway and modern mudroom a luxuriously airy ambiance. Nature-inspired hues also provide the perfect backdrop for pleasant pops of color, like the brilliant blues and greens featured in the mudroom artwork or the brass-finish light fixtures placed throughout the home.
