For a Los Altos family with three young kids, Mendell transformed a dated ranch house into a charming California bungalow that nods to the aesthetic of the clients’ favorite getaway, Santa Barbara. The Lindsey Adelman modern chandelier is the statement piece in the dining room. Mendell also created an accent wall with grass wallpaper. Wishbone chairs surround a custom-designed, modern version of a farmhouse table by Peter Howkinson of Figured Woodworking.
