California Casual Design – Gorgeous Home Tour In The Bay Area

Welcome back to another home tour edition! This time around, we’re taking a stroll through a stunning home tour with a distinctive California casual design and Mediterranean allure.

Renovated by the talented team at Jute Interior Design, this home captures the California casual design charm right in the heart of Hillsborough, tucked away in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The design of this home is a modern take on the ever-so-charming South European style with a California twist—sun-kissed spaces dressed in warm hues, rich woods, and textured fabrics along with vintage details.

I have a post that I’m working on that focuses on the upcoming home decor trends for 2024! Among other things that I’m seeing I’ll be highlighting the comeback of warm neutrals. This home perfectly embodies that, skillfully balancing a warm neutral color palette with just the right amount of colorful accents and details.

The result? Timeless and functional spaces brimming with unique charm!

Let’s take a peek through the rooms and explore this alluring home.

Chic Mediterranean Home Tour in Hillsborough

The entry porch is a sunny dream! Natural stone tiles and a beautifully crafted walnut wood front door give it a distinct touch of colonial Spanish architecture.

As we walk into the home, the entry welcomes us with a stunning staircase. The Tabarka tile on the stair risers creates a captivating visual detail, contrasting beautifully with the wood tones of the hardwood flooring.

In the living room, there’s a beautiful play of textures. Cozy green velvet sofas add a splash of color to the bright space, complementing the warm wood tones.

The unusual arched window and ceiling beams bring a unique touch, creating such a serene and cozy feel!

The kitchen is all about understated elegance! White cabinets and a kitchen island in a dark hue topped with Calcutta marble make such a striking look.

The details are subtle yet impactful in creating such an elevated space, like the streamlined wooden barstools, bronze fixtures, and a vintage runner.

The kitchen has a charming dining area too and it has to be one of my favorite parts of this home tour!

The walnut table is austere, allowing the spotlight to shine on the seating options – a striking teal upholstered bench and eye-catching rattan chairs.

Maintaining the clean and streamlined theme, the dining room sees a similar dining table paired with chairs upholstered in a complementary blue pattern, mirroring the details in the curtains.

A double vanity with sleek black frames and pendant lighting fixtures evokes a sense of understated opulence in the main bathroom.

The patterned tiles are a playful touch that adds a bit of whimsy and contrast to the room, creating a functional and timeless design.

In the secondary bathroom, there’s a gorgeous mix of light and dark marble mix on the vanity and bathtub. Industrial-style fixtures give this room a more modern touch.

In the laundry room, a lovely shade of bluish-green adds a colorful note to this home tour. These custom-made cabinets are practical and just stunning!

The color complements the rich hue of hardwood flooring while the white quartz countertops brighten up the color scheme. I love the black wall lamp and baskets! They complement the color palette so beautifully, don’t you think?

And we can’t say goodbye to this beautiful home without visiting its Mediterranean-styled patio, can we?

The outdoor spaces are just as sophisticated as the indoors! An L-shaped sofa and chairs gather around a fire pit, creating a chic outdoor living space.

Next to it, a dining table of honey-colored wood paired with a bench and outdoor faux-rattan chairs sits under the gazebo, making it the ideal spot to host a dinner party.

And there you have it! What did you think of this home? Which room caught your eye the most? Share your thoughts in the comments!
