Residential Space Under 3,500 Square Feet: Kristianne Watts, Allied Member ASID
When Kristianne Watts of KW Designs set out to transform this once tired, contemporary home into a modern coastal classic, she focused her design plan around practical upgrades that reflected the house natural environment. Located in the heart of Bird Rock, the house incorporates ceramic flooring throughout, low-emitting cabinetry, and concrete countertops with 60 percent recycled-content. The neutral interior palette achieves texture with the ledge stone wall in the great room, while the addition of full height aluminum pocket doors and metal-like recessed baseboards help create a sleek design. Touches of vibrant colors play off the original artworks of George Rodrigue, bringing personality to this sophisticated home. Bold architectural features and a fluid design create a home that merges sustainability with modern elegance. (858/722-9700, www.kwdesigns.com)
