Encinitas Custom Home


Just completed!  This gorgeous custom coastal contemporary home is located in Encinitas, California and has fabulous ocean views!

In order to lend the home a casual coastal feel and to balance out the more contemporary features of the home, I opted for Siberian Oak hardwood for the main living areas flooring.

The stacked stone fireplace wall adds drama to the focal point of the room and separates the indoor/outdoor living spaces.









For the main back splash in the kitchen I used a large format porcelain tile in a cement look and a mosaic glass and stainless back splash on the adjacent wall. I kept the open feel by using a combination of stainless open shelving with barn door hardware and glass panels, and upper cabinets with aluminum framed glass paneled doors. Easy care Quartz counter tops and a large island with two levels for casual dining completes the look.

All kidding aside! There is no way to over emphasize how important good interior design is in your model homes… Especially in today’s home buying market!!  Today’s buyers are looking for a home that, well,  feels and functions like a home!  In recent years it was all about overindulgence,  people wanted to see excess.  With so much hardship facing Californians today, they want to know they have a home they can feel secure in, that will stay with them for years to come.

Attention all Home Builders!!

Hi everyone!  It is so exciting to be  launching my new blog!   Here at Sophia La Marca Designs in beautiful Carlsbad, CA we specialize in residential design with a focus on model home designs for the smaller builder.  We’ve all seen the amazing interiors in some of the larger builders’ models.  My question to you is, In this home sales market, in this economy, how many builders can afford to spend 100k or more on their models? I’ve been working with small builders since 2004 and have proven that it doesn’t take that kind of cash to create a beautiful model home!   Our designs are not only beautiful, current, and enticing, but they are also AFFORDABLE! We are committed to providing interiors which will help you sell your homes, within your budget!
