Answer: 'Soquel' is a handsome tree, with blue-tinged green foliage on horizontal branches with upturned tips. For your particular situation I'd recommend 'Los Altos'. It produces a thick canopy of dark green leaves on horizontal, arching branches. For even more garden interest, you might consider 'Majestic Beauty'. It has dense blue-green foliage on pendulous branchelets.
The compact grape holly will provide an attractive understory to your redwoods. The foliage is a blue-green which will complement the tree foliage and look striking against the red-brown trunks of the trees. Good luck with your new landscape!
