Whimsical Club Laurel Canyon Residence by SoCal Contractor


A fantastic contemporary home with a fantastic modern pool house.

Fantastic kitchen with a pot rack and tons of cabinet space.

Welcome to our gallery featuring another gorgeous home by SoCal Contractor!

This home is an utterly unique creation, with quirky accents and bold patterns throughout.  This allows for a fun design that blends beautifully with the contemporary and modern overall feel of the home.

In stark contrast to the main home, when entering this home’s pool house, you’re transported from an elegant and contemporary home with vintage elements, to a more modern space with bold, neon colors and smooth geometrics.  Although modern, the nod to vintage kitsch is particularly evident in the furniture and color choices and ties in the pool house with the main living space.

Look for interesting accents throughout the home, like an antique secretary desk transformed into a clever spot to hide a television, or bold stencils on the ceiling of the dining room.

Keep an eye out for wrought iron details in the living room, like a pet gate near the stairs and a small balcony overlooking the room.

We hope you’ll enjoy viewing this fantastic, unique, and luxurious home by SoCal Contractor!

The kitchen, at first glance, looks very contemporary, with warm wood cabinetry and a light gray granite for the countertops. However, the details add individual flair to this space. The light fixtures on either side of the island are chandeliers tucked inside a tessellating glass diamond pattern.

The formal dining room has large china cabinets on either side of the small wrought iron balcony that overlooks the living room. This space is very contemporary, but the yellow stencils on the ceiling between the exposed wooden beams add unique charm.

Some modern elements creep into the main home in this double office. Custom orange cabinetry and desk surfaces add an amazingly bright pop of color to the otherwise cream furniture. The desk areas are split into two workspaces: one with a computer, and the other more of a craft area.
