Walnut Creek Interior Designers

When considering Walnut Creek interior designers, there are a number of factors to consider. Interior designers should take into consideration the history, the climate of Walnut Creek, the architecture of your home, and your personal style. Below we walk you through what we feel is most important to get the most out of your project.

Designer Appeal - The Downtown Walnut Creek Experience

Walnut Creek, CA is located 16 miles east of San Francisco, and hosts a diversified and well-established community of residents. The downtown was recently given a huge update that now features a retail strip of high end shops including Neiman Marcus, Macy's, J. Crew, Anthropologie, and Tesla to name a few. Restaurants offer a wide array of dining experiences and menus ranging from California Modern, to authentic Japanese and rustic Italian cuisines.

Walnut Creek Designer Homes

The area was booming with new development in the 50's-70's and continues to see new construction in the last remaining land, which makes it very common in today's time for young families to move into existing homes that need a redux.

Newly constructed homes are primarily built in the style of California transitional, offers dwellers with spacious rooms, modern amenities, and stucco'd exteriors to shield from the hot summers. Modern interior designers are in great demand to help furnish large rooms, and add special appeal to the thriving families moving to the area.

Ranch homes have received updates, sometimes a contemporary Atomic Ranch twist, other times receiving an updated traditional California Ranch treatment.

Joseph Eichler, a mid-century modern home builder, constructed most of his 375+ homes in Walnut Creek. Inspired by architecture from Frank Lloyd Wright, he worked with several talented architects to develop floorplans with a modern spacious appeal within a nominal footprint and price tag.

Since the 50's and 60's, these homes have exchanged hands and have withstood the test of time, now appealing to a trendy crowd of vintage collectors, artists, and modern families that have moved to the East Bay with their growing ambitions and families.

50 years after their original construction, they are often needing updating to modern safety codes and function. Homeowners and investors have needed mid-century modern interior designers to update these homes using a stylistic, yet researched approach to bringing new life to these vintage homes.
