Minimalist California house with a neutral color palette

This modern residence is known as the Hayvenhurst House. It used to be a ranch-style house until it has been renovated and got a modern look. It was a project developed by Dan Brunn Architecture. The old house now definitely has a more eye-catching look. It might be simple but it’s also very beautiful and stylish. This allows it to have a strong visual impact.

The Hayvenhurst House has been updated and it now has a modern look. It features an open floor plan like most modern and contemporary homes. The main living area is very spacious and it has a clean and linear décor. A minimalist fireplace and a grey fireplace wall/partition is the focal point of the room. It divides the kitchen from the living room and it also makes the atmosphere feel a little more inviting. White open shelves and storage cabinets cover one of the walls and connect the two spaces.

The kitchen is spacious, open and almost entirely white. It has a skylight that lets in addition natural light as well as a double window. The kitchen island also serves as a bar and creates a nice transition between the spaces. The dining area is also part of the same open floor plan, adjacent to the kitchen. The same minimalist and clean style was kept in all the other rooms as well, including the kids’ bedroom and the bathroom. The house also has a very spacious home office that features a simple and professional décor, separated from the rest of the house by sliding glass doors.
