Creating a soothing environment was paramount for this busy Silicon Valley family. A serene color palette in shades of gray provides a neutral backdrop—evoking a warm, embracing feeling and allowing the beautiful garden views to take center stage. With this indoor/outdoor setting, a quintessentially Californian experience was made.

The classic farmhouse architecture of the home is brought to life with layers of modern textures and elements. Dynamic chandeliers and moments of color work within the neutral space to create unexpected twists. The SDS team also took care to choose practical finishes in keeping with the design aesthetic, including the porcelain Ann Sacks kitchen island top. Softer, more organic materials provide an elevated look that is also durable enough to withstand the family’s school age children.

The SDS team proves serene doesn’t have to be boring. Geometric patterns are at play throughout the Atherton home adding subtle interest.

The family’s project room creates a designated hub of energy for the parents and kids to interact and explore. With this light filled room, nature plays an important role once again. The room features a centrally located craft table, individual workstations, and a library wall complete with rolling ladder. Nothing is out of reach.

SDS appointed this home with enough sophisticated elements to bring a classic farmhouse into the 21st century. However, with a modern Silicon Valley family at its heart, the team also designed pristine, practical spaces. This Atherton family will continue to grow and explore surrounded by California’s beauty for years to come.
