Historic craftsman style house gets a beautiful makeover in Berkley Hills

craftsman style home exterior

Heidi Caillier Design has reimagined the interiors of this redwood-shingled, craftsman-style house constructed in 1910, situated in beautiful Berkley Hills, California. Created for a family of three, the owners desired a house that would feel timeless yet youthful—a reflection of them. Nestled into a hillside, a large terraced garden overlooks the San Francisco Bay. 

The owners conscientiously took care to preserve as many original architectural details as possible. They only made changes to the interior that felt authentic to the house. The wife turned to interior designer Heidi Caillier with a mood board full of works by British designers who are great at combining vivid colors with cozy elements.

What We Love: Heidi Caillier has beautifully transformed this family home by honoring its history through the preservation of beautiful dark millwork. Her trademark use of slightly muted yet striking colors and patterns infuses this home with the coziest, effortlessly stylish, slightly European, and timeless aesthetic. Overall, we love everything about this house and the way it flows with casual, relaxed design.
