Burgin Design • Remodel

1701 E Edinger, Suite B1, Santa Ana, CA 92705

Burgin Design • Remodel decked this U-shaped open concept kitchen in recessed-panel white cabinetry and beige walls to match the beach style of the rest of the house. The wooden dining set sits at the center of the space between the farmhouse sink beneath the wide windows and the tiered island topped with quartz along with the rest of the counter space. The stone backsplash behind the stainless steel range matches the overall theme of the home.

Mr. Build Construction

18100 Von Karman Avenue, Irvine, CA 92612

White walls, basket-weave lamps, and pops of green and blue give this home the beach feel that matches its location. A sitting room and dining area share a space with the built-in wood shelf-flanked charcoal brick fireplace as a focal point. The vaulted ceiling extends into the shiplapped kitchen, and there’s a white quartz-top eat-in island at its center. The larger living room closes in the space which is surrounded by large windows and glass doors displaying majestic views of the city. Touches of gold find their way into the dual-sink master bath around the mirrors and the shower fixtures above the recessed tub. The kids’ room follows a nautical theme, and more play areas can be found on the outer deck. There’s also a home office and a media area on the patio.
