As a long-time California resident, I know about the area’s relationship with nature. Around the Bay--and up and down the valley--is a surprising amount of natural beauty along with the beautiful new homes, spectacular redesigns, and architecturally-imaginative new tech headquarters. We don’t really care much for sterile office parks (and thankfully many of the tech companies building campuses in the area agree), and we know what we build should complement nature. But we also know that there is no need to sacrifice beauty or design for earth-friendly choices. When it comes to maximizing space, eco-friendly materials go hand-in-hand with smart and elegant design.

California’s health-consciousness is often gently teased in pop-culture parodies that paint us as wheatgrass-slurping “hippies”—but that healthy, environmentally-conscious California lifestyle has also informed the West Coast’s undeniably significant contributions to the fields of architecture and design. For example, the legacy of California Modern architecture, with it’s well-lit and clutter-free interiors, offer more than a chic, contemporary look. That sunlight and airy, open space can actually cut your stress and keep you healthy. Likewise, a Spanish colonial home with ample windows and a clutter free interior epitomizes breezy California style in Los Gatos. By “designing sunlight” into your home in the early stages of planning with your architect and furniture craftsman, you can maximize the light and space in your interior, and enjoy the health and happiness afforded by the extra rays. The key is to plan for ample storage that's integrated into the walls—a hideaway wall-to-wall media center with in-wall storage opens up your main living spaces to the sun for a healthier, happier space for living.
