A beautiful and calming home designed for entertaining in Redwood City

transitional home exterior

This gorgeous two-story house serves as the personal family home of Erik Bergstrom, who is the proprietor of the design-build company EBCON Corporation, situated in Redwood City, California. In collaboration with Viotti Architects, Erik worked diligently to fashion a home that caters to his family’s lifestyle requirements. Their main goal was an open kitchen where family and friends could hang out in the heart of the home.

In terms of design preferences, Erik has a penchant for natural materials and a transitional aesthetic, whereas his wife leans towards a more traditional style. To strike a harmonious balance, the couple drew inspiration from various photos and harmonized their two design sensibilities, resulting in a welcoming yet opulent kitchen boasting an airy ambiance, multiple functional areas, and a chic palette of white, wood, and blue.
