Craftsman house in Silicon Valley boasts inspiring design ideas

craftsman-style-home-exterior

De Mattei Construction in collaboration with Lauren Nelson Design created this classic Craftsman house built for modern living, located in Los Gatos, California. This two-story home is the 2018 Sunset Idea House, full of inspiring design ideas. Since this home is situated in Silicon Valley, the project team channeled both the region’s creative boldness and its laid-back culture. The builder visioned an open layout that brings in natural light while maximizing indoor-outdoor living spaces.

 A sleek approach was brought to interiors of this 2,683 square foot, four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home using a monochromatic color scheme. Drawing on the casual culture of the region, a minimal collection of Scandinavian furnishings and accessories adorns the interior. The result is a mix of innovation and Sunset’s signature Western spirit.
