By teaming farmhouse elements with glamorous touches, this Rancho Santa Fe home provides harmonious living for its rock star residents.

When music executive Chris Woltman isn’t touring the globe with Grammy-winning rock duo Twenty One Pilots, the band manager retreats to Rancho Pacifica, the tony guard-gated community in Rancho Santa Fe. It’s there he enjoys family life with his wife, Jeanne, and daughter, Arden, in their 6,500-square-foot estate designed by Robbie Maynard of Solana Beach’s Robbie Maynard Interiors (robbieinteriors.com). “A mix of earthiness and glamour keeps this home sophisticated yet comfortable and livable. As soon as you walk through the doors, you feel relaxed and right at home,” says Maynard of the project, which took roughly a year to complete. “We demoed the inside and redesigned the home, selecting finishes and features in the juxtaposed styles of Hollywood glam and modern farmhouse.”

While Woltman’s impressive résumé also includes his company, Element1 Music, Marketing & Management, Arden and Jeanne, who co-own performance apparel brand Blue Water Dance Wear, were instrumental in drumming up the family’s aesthetic thanks to their own creative perspectives. “Arden has a very good eye for color and design. She created mood boards that helped me to understand the family’s vibe,” notes Maynard, who further took into account the family’s desire to entertain guests and relax. “Jeanne and Arden like to travel for fun and for work, and they enjoy collecting art during their travels. Some of their favorite pieces are their collection of horse pictures from London’s McMillen Fine Art Photography,” she continues. It’s those personal details that beautifully off set Maynard’s approachable yet elevated design.
Solana Beach’s John Jensen Architects handled the architecture of the home while Rancho Santa Fe’s Ahles Landscape Architecture designed the lush grounds.
For Chris, the cook in the family, a functional yet stylish kitchen—paired with an outdoor pizza oven and grill—was at the top of his wish list. “The kitchen backsplash is a unique custom blend of antique mirror and glass tiles,” notes Maynard. “I also designed a glass display cabinet for Jeanne to showcase her lovely blue and white dishes.” Ceiling-high cabinets from Oregon Trail Remodeling, which were custom-designed by Maynard, are teamed with Rohl fixtures, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, and sleek Silestone Et Calacatta Gold countertops by Cosentino for a timeless look. “When designing a kitchen, all the details really matter,” says Maynard.
Chandeliers from Troy Lighting are teamed with trestle-style beams designed by Robbie Maynard to draw the eye to the 15-foot-high ceilings in Chris Woltman’s rock star office.
Upstairs, Maynard chose to cover the hallway with birch tree wallpaper from Rebel Walls for an impactful statement that brings in an “earthy yet sophisticated vibe,” she says. Meanwhile, Arden’s room enchants in tones of blush—“a great semisoft neutral, which brings in a touch of whimsy and highlights her international flair for style and fashion,” notes Maynard. But it’s the primary bedroom that Maynard remarks is the “place to shine.” Nightstands from Made Goods flank the custom bed while a Nicola antique mirror and copper leaf wall display from Phillips Collection add glitz. Further, with both canyon and ocean views, the home embodies its Mediterranean-style architecture—with a custom wine cellar to boot. Now that’s worthy of applause.
