Dream Home

Local interior designer Wendy Glaister had a challenge with this foothills property in San Andreas. Her clients wanted to transform the traditional layout of their beautiful old farmhouse into a more modern layout with increased natural light and room for entertaining — all before the festivities began for their son’s upcoming wedding. 


The family room is furnished with a custom sized and fitted sofa from Slater’s Home Furnishings, tailored to the exact dimensions required for the couple’s comfort and tastes. Crypton performance fabric was chosen for the upholstery to provide peace of mind to the homeowner — in anticipation of lots of celebrations and parties to honor their son’s upcoming marriage. The room is grounded by a spectacular Nourison area rug from House of Carpets, Carpet One in Modesto. Large area rugs work not only visually, but they absorb the “echoey” sound in large rooms. 


They put in two new huge picture windows with views of the majestic oak tree just out the kitchen sink window, allowing for streaming sunshine and breezes to infuse the home with a new sense of cheer. Sub Zero and Wolf appliances added the muscle behind the customized space, providing superior refrigeration and cooking elements for easy entertaining. 


Glaister and her team took down the wall separating the office and kitchen and changed the old office into a cozy breakfast area with views to the pool beyond through a pair of beautiful new French doors. An understated chandelier from Phillips Lighting and Home gives the space some sparkle, and custom drapery from Pursley’s Window Coverings adds softness to the space.
