Ranch Home Makeover
In this article from California Home + Design, author Elysa Hill discusses the makeover of a 1960’s ranch home. The work of bringing this home into the 21st century was accomplished by Urrutia Design. They kept a classic look, while opening the home up, making it bright and airy. Here is an excerpt from the article:

“After nearly 16 years of continuous “kid traffic” parading through their 1960s ranch home, Suzanne and Bob Whelan called upon the talents of Urrutia Design to give their beloved playhouse a makeover. Major improvements included opening up individual rooms and altering support beams to give existing ceiling space a more expansive feel. By incorporating stately redwood tables into the family room and dining area, Urrutia Design infused an earthy palette into the Whelan’s new, redesigned abode – a major game changer, as the Whelans wanted to bridge natural colors of the adjacent flagstone patio into the interior. After installing custom touches like built-in bookshelves, a fabricated banquette, and striking black cabinetry, the Whelan’s average, boxy home transformed into a contemporary, airy abode.”
