a modern California ranch house

 this midcentury ranch house in Newport Beach was converted
 into a contemporary farmhouse-inspired home.

This original 1950's California ranch home was recently updated and featured on the Newport Harbor Home Tour. It was one of my favorites on the tour for its simplicity and creativity in combining modern comforts with vintage style. I hope you enjoy the tour...

the open kitchen features a carrara marble island
and pops of red and yellow 

a family name is displayed above the cabinets
in colors that are sparingly used throughout the home.

a Pendleton blanket strapped down with belts and an antler chandelier dominate the dining area.

paintings of western scenes compliment the simple log bin.

Alice Supply Company  housewares are in display in the laundry room.

the boys' bathroom uses subway tiles on the walls and
penny tiles on the floor, and is accented with yellow accessories.

 a country feeling is evoked in one of the bedrooms with the combination of
yellow-painted antlers, wood-paneled walls, and an iron bedframe.

a bicycle has become a piece of art in the hallway.

 the large deck is the perfect place to relax in the shade.
