We have been busy over here at South Harlow with lots of exciting things in the works! One of those being our very own blog. We’re so excited to share design details, tricks of the trade, and our love of all things interiors with you all.
If you’ve been following us on the South Harlow and South Harlow Home Instagram pages, you may have noticed a very sleek and modern new project of ours that has recently come into completion. We are here today to do an official project reveal of our Point Loma remodel, and we are spilling all the beans! We teamed up again with talented photographer, Samantha Goh, to snap some beautiful images of the kitchen, family room, and powder bath. So kick back, relax, and enjoy the tour.

This project was a fun one! We got to flex our modern muscles, experiment with more color contrast, but still stayed true to our core design aesthetic. We really went for timeless, clean lines mixed with bold accent color for this kitchen. We worked with our contractor dream team over at Classical Kitchens for all of the cabinetry. So excited our client was keen for some flat-panel cabinet fronts giving this kitchen a clean and sleek feel.
To keep things neutral and soft, we chose oak flooring because you can never go wrong with light, hardwood flooring, am I right? The counters are quartz, a marble look-a-like, while cabinetry is painted in Benjamin Moore‘s “Cheating Heart” for some stark contrast. We pulled it together by adding warmth through the use of satin brass hardware from Schoolhouse and adding walnut finishes on the hood and open shelf. We stuck with a stainless steel range with brass collared knobs from JennAir.
One of our favorite design features in this kitchen has got to be the quartz kitchen island with a waterfall edge detail. It keeps the kitchen feeling fluid and open. We chose walnut barstools to tie into the walnut detailing spotted in other parts of the home. Matte white and brass pendants from Rejuvenation hang over the kitchen island providing for some fun accent lighting, while windows with custom Roman shades are nearby for daytime natural light.
We chose a stainless steel refrigerator from Sub-Zero to match the range. To keep things sophisticated and clean, we went with Brizo‘s matte black and luxe gold pull-down faucet with arc spout. The pull-out spray wand in gold plays into our brass pops seen throughout the whole kitchen. We had to hone it all in and give this kitchen some life by styling in a few of our favorite South Harlow Home kitchen accessories.

The home has an open concept so that the kitchen and family room flow together into one communal space. The oak flooring and black cabinetry continue throughout the living space keeping the home cohesive. It was important for us to give this family room a subtle show stopper moment, so we gave the fireplace a little facelift with Moroccan zellige tiles in “Desert White” from Exquisite Surfaces.
Of course, we needed to maintain the color palette into the family room, so we added a custom built-in with quartz counters, media storage down below, and two additional walnut floating shelves. For the cozy family room feels to be in full-affect, we added in some plant life and South Harlow Home decor pieces.

The powder bath was kept simple yet elegant. For the wall, we used 3″ x 12″ matte black subway tiles with contrasting grout to create a moody statement and bring attention to the herringbone pattern. The herringbone pattern creates movement and gives the feeling of vertically lengthening the wall in an overall small space. The vanity is a custom slab showcasing some caramel earth-toned perfection. A modern globe pendant from Shades of Light hangs overhead.
Delta Faucet for the win in here! We used their Trinsic wall mount faucet paired with the Trinsic towel ring, both in “Champagne Bronze”. Custom-built cabinetry lines the side wall for ample storage, and we spruced them up again with Schoolhouse hardware in natural brass. Lastly, we styled in some coastal-inspired artwork (we are in San Diego after all) coupled with a South Harlow Home vintage woven jug that our client snatched up and purchased immediately on site.
And just like that, our first ever blog post! We are so excited to share more projects, ideas, and designer insight here on the blog with you. We will be back in a few weeks with more excitement and content. Until then, thank you for reading and hope to see you soon!
