Stunning Mediterranean style retreat nestled on a hilltop in Carmel Valley

mediterranean-living-room

This Mediterranean style retreat was designed by Walker & Moody Architects in collaboration with Tucker & Marks, situated high on a ridge above the central coast in Tehama County, California. A striking residence that boasts flowing living spaces, vaulted ceilings and expansive terraces capturing the morning and evening sun.

The design team took a playful approach to the finishes and textiles throughout the interiors. The project features a mix of textured indigenous stone, hand-hewn and sandblasted woods, antiques, new pieces, and fabrics – linen prints, cushy chenilles, and soft cottons – reflecting a modern yet casual feel.

What We Love: This incredible Mediterranean style retreat offers brilliant interior styling that creates warm and inviting living spaces. The sweeping views from this home are perfectly captured from the cozy yet elegant living room. French doors from this space leads out to a terrace, where one can soak up the beautiful California sunshine. We are especially loving how all of the bedrooms offer private balconies with their own fabulous views!… Readers, what are your overall thoughts on the design?

Note: Have a look at another fabulous project that we have featured here on One Kindesign by the designer’s of this home, Tucker & Marks: Spanish-style hacienda in Carmel Valley showcases inviting design.
