This Sunny Abode Masters The Art Of California Cool

Designer Sam Sacks takes us behind the scenes of her latest project.

As a designer, sometimes you meet a client and you immediately know: this is going to be good. This was my experience with Alex and Jim Cooper, two Hamilton plastic surgeons who’d purchased a dark, dated ranch-style house in Hamilton, Ontario that needed an overhaul to better suit their young, happy family.

The homeowners described their ideal design as “California cool,” which translated to a laid-back and breezy feel with a distinct point of view. In just four months, we transformed the once dreary 3,700-square-foot home into the epitome of SoCal chic. Click through to take a virtual tour of this sunny space!
