Home to a busy Silicon Valley family, this modern farmhouse embraces the quintessential laid-back California lifestyle of indoor/outdoor living. To create a serene interior that parallels its picturesque surroundings, the team at Sullivan Design Studio uses a neutral color palette, organic materials, and a ton of natural light. “We really wanted to make the landscaping and exterior the focal point, and not distract from the view as much as possible,” says Linda Sullivan, founding principal and CEO of Sullivan Design Studio.
Surrounded by beautiful landscaping, this 6,000-square-foot home in Atherton, California was designed by SDG Architecture and built by Ernst Development. “The architecture was purposely designed to receive natural light and a view of the exterior from every room, a trademark of this architect,” says Sullivan. “Natural light can help define the essence of a home.” Once inside, dynamic chandeliers, geometric patterns, and pops of color create unexpected twists. From the lush backyard to the spacious living areas, tour the home here.
