Kitchen Transformations

Where food and merriment are meant to be shared! Kitchens are the central place of any home where family and friends come together to enjoy the simple pleasures of dinners and parties. Over the years we have seen an abundance of constructive designs where kitchen themes have varied greatly from traditional cottage to futuristic smart home fashions. Here are some of our favorite themes that we still love and create today! 

Classic:  Let your imagination run wild with these kitchens! The boundaries for fun and design are truly limitless here. Instead of muting a solid color throughout the kitchen, a second lighter or contrasting color can be added to bring out the darker wood features that are in either the flooring or ceiling beams. A more common trend has been installing white or cream colored cabinetry that certainly brightens up a home. In focused points, see-thru glass cupboards are added to bring a unique style and allow more use for decoration inside cabinets as well. These kitch…

SubZero-Wolf Showroom Tour!

If you have ever gotten the chance to walk through one of our model homes, or looked closely at the photos of the kitchens on our website, you will notice that each house, unique as they may be, have one thing in common: the appliances. McCullough Design Development is a BIG fan of SubZero-Wolf products, and their trademarked red knobs can be seen in every MDD home, as they are considered standard for all of our homes.
Our contact at SubZero-Wolf (SZ-W) invited MDD to come and see their showroom in Costa Mesa and have lunch! We said "absolutely!" and took a little trip up there this past Friday. The showroom was breathtaking! Every mock kitchen display was something out of a chef's dream. We got a full tour of the place, allowing us to see all of SZ-W's latest innovative products, including the newest addition to their brand: the Cove Dishwasher. This dishwasher operates with near silence, ensures spotless dishes every time, and is adaptive to the dishes you wash the…

2018 New Home Trends - Geometric Patterns

New designs, trends, and ideas flow in every year for us to sift through until we find what we want to put into the interior of our homes. If you are looking for something new and fresh or just different, take a look below at one of the new home trends of 2018: Geometric patterns!

We recently finished building a beautiful home for one of our clients in Del Sur. They implemented geometric patterns on bathroom walls and back splashes throughout their home and it is just too cool not to share! Using geometric shapes this way really fills the room with a dramatic presence and catches your eye. It can also be more subtle, like in the last photo with the 3D hexagonal textured wall. This chic geometric shape look can also be achieved by use of home decor like pillows and wall art.

Multigenerational Living - The Old New Trend

Yes, it really is making a comeback!

During the 1940's about 1/4th of the worlds population lived in a home with three or more generations present, and now we have seen an increase in this trend over the past few years.
In the industry of custom homes architects are finding that multi-generational living is on the rise and not slowing down! "In fact, for the first time in 130 years, living with parents surpasses other living arrangements for those 18 to 34" (Multigenerational Living is Back and it's a Good Thing). Whether the situation is kids returning home, parents moving in, adding roommates, or putting up guests, having that extra space is nice and useful. There are benefits in it for everyone: it makes it easier to care for aging parents, children are able to build relationships with older members of the family, and it saves money for all involved.

There is an art to designing homes like this because for multiple generations to live under one roof there needs to…
