Plascon House Tour: Mediterranean Luxury
Situated in San Diego, California, the architecture of this magnificent abode boasts a refreshing Mediterranean layout that the designers hoped to keep as the central theme running through this newly renovated space.
Though the 6,500-square-foot spread was only recently constructed, the design team wanted to be respectful of the structure’s Mediterranean-inspired design. With the home’s existing architecture character in mind, they introduced rustic elements to the scene in order to bring contrast against the use of mixed metallics and modern shapes.
“We wanted to make the interiors feel like they belonged in a home that was California-Mediterranean style, so we brought in some more hand-crafted finishes, like the hand-painted tiles along the stairs and the plain sawn white oak beams,” explains the design team.
Beautiful modern finishes add a wow factor to this magnificent abode. In the kitchen area, a gorgeous globe-like chandelier brings life, offset by a plethora of open windows that make this room a bright and sophisticated space. Dark wooden flooring adds contrast against the white walls and window frames, and a striking choice of solid wood furniture with a farm-style table are simply breathtaking here.
While hot pink and loud prints have no place here, flashes of gold, layers of cream, and ultra-plush textiles speak to the home’s understated glamour. In the living room, eye-catching details—like the custom brass brackets that support the white oak shelves—instantly elevate the space.
The bathroom is a solace from the outside world. With luxury finishes including marble flooring and plush seating area with hints of gold, this space oozes refined elegance. The showstopper – a bespoke light fitting that demands attention in all of its glory!
With a palette primarily comprised of soft grays, bright whites, and taupes, it’s easy to appreciate the home’s uncomplicated ways. But don’t let its neutral attitude fool you: A rich range of textures (from oak and linen to wool blends and leather) extend a sense of playfulness and dimension that otherwise would have been missing. Between the fuzzy moroccan rug and large wave print, the master bedroom alone is a tangible testament to the power of texture.
