Tour an Interior Designer’s Casual and Stylish Home

In this episode of Houzz TV Live, designer Katelyn Gilmour gives a virtual tour of her San Jose, California, home. In the kitchen, which she opened up to the living room, deep slate-navy base cabinets bring style and drama to creamy upper cabinets and white quartz countertops. Geometric backsplash tile adds pattern and texture. In an adjacent dining area, a built-in banquette offers cushioned seating at a hammered-steel-topped table.

In the living room, Gilmour vaulted the ceiling, widened a window and created a gallery wall of mirrors to give the appearance of more space while working within the same footprint. Navy and cream tones, a leopard print chair and a reclaimed-wood coffee table create relaxed style. And in a bathroom, a custom gray vanity, mixed metal finishes, crackled white subway tile and mother-of-pearl penny mosaic floor tile deliver drama and elegance.

The idea to extend the tile shower is a really great tip! It really did help to make the shower appear larger. Plus it's a lovely tile and makes a great backsplash for the sink area. Nice job.

Everything is so livable. I would feel very comfortable in this house. I always thought it was wrong, and looked like patches, to mix metals, but these all look great together.

Although we don't want an open plan in our 1960s ranch, I like many of the items and uses of space.

What flooring did you use? We are getting ready to put in new floors and I am agonizing over the decision!

Your home looks so inviting, and I love the veining movement in your kitchen's quartz. Is this Vadara's "Calacatta Belleza" quartz? (btw, it is so refreshing to have a pro provide the vendor list and answer questions!)

What is the wall paint color in the bathroom? We have a similar bathroom (without windows) and we were planning to paint the walls white, but the gray-ish color you have feels very cozy!

Yes, the countertops are Calacatta Belleza by Vadara. And I'll have to respond later about the wall paint colors. :-)

The cabinet color works very well with your floor choice and the pulls on the cabinets match the floor.
It looks very modern and traditional at the same time!
Very nice mixing and matching,

@Carla Christine the painted metal 3D succulents were a mix from World Market and Amazon.

Alicia Grey you might want to try a Bamboo floor,
I love it, especially if you have dogs, or children.
I have it on my entire first floor. I’ve dropped many items on it and not even a crack. Also make sure you get a top notch installer it will make all the difference.

@elizabethn Thanks so much - unfortunately, the pendants are vintage and once lived in a middle school gym - who knows how many years ago. I found them at a flea market and bought them immediately :-). I know there are many other vendors that make modern-day versions of industrial pendants, but it would require some searching (RH, Rejuvenation, Shades of Light, Arteriors, Urban Electric Co, etc.).

Gorgeous! I love the old and new furniture and decor items. The mix of colors and metals make every room interesting to look at. Very cozy, comfortable, and livable. This is the look designers can pull off and I try to study it for my own home. I think a key is definitely getting a loved item to dump start the colors i.e. the table in the family room. Thank you fir opening your home. Well done!

Not my taste, way too busy. Too many things that don't go together.
