Despite near triple-digit weather, outside our fantastic paving crew has finished the circle patio made of Belgard’s Dublin Cobble pavers. We will have a Softub hot tub adjacent to the patio.

Framing up the deck
The shape of the Trex deck echoes the Belgard patio. The steel deck framing is the Elevations product from Trex. A high-performance, low-maintenance, dual-coated galvanized steel that won’t sag, rot, or warp.

Kitchen island ready for counters and tile
The dynamic duo of contractors from Coldstream Construction is finished framing inside our Reimagined Sunset Home. This is the kitchen island, ready for its Caesarstone top and some absolutely gorgeous tile from Kismet Tile in Los Angeles.

Dressing up the ceiling
In the kitchen, we’ve added some architectural interest to the ceiling just above the island with these coffered ceiling tiles from Armstrong. A great DIY product, that’s lightweight and easy to install.

One handsome fireplace
This generously-sized three-sided fireplace divides the living space from the dining and kitchen areas. A built-in bench seat provides additional seating on both sides of the fireplace.

A wall of cubbies
Designer Erin Hiemstra created this wall of cubbies for today’s iteration of the vintage Rec Room: the unplugged den. That’s right, no digital devices allowed. That’s why we’ve created so much storage for all the books and games to be enjoyed with family and friends.

The bed goes here
In the master bedroom, Vanessa De Vargas has designed this floor-to-ceiling wall that we’ll wrap with wallpaper and use as a dramatic backdrop for an upholstered king-size bed. A closet sits just behind the wall.

Here is one of the inspiration images for the outdoor living room in the Reimagined Sunset Home. Taken from a 1950 Sunset cover, canvas as a landscape material was just coming into play. Wait till you see what we have planned for Sunbrella canvas!
