a cozy cottage in Venice Beach

This Venice Beach home has a casual relaxed elegance that is perfect for a family with dogs and kids.  

Slipcovered furniture and rugged  hardwood floors 
are a must in this California beach house.  

 Vintage finds and salvaged pieces set the tone for the dining room

Seashells, hand blown glass and a vintage map
bring a beachy vibe into the entryway. 
I also love the unexpected use of an exotic rug on the fun tile floor.

 A v-grooved paneled ceiling sets the tone for 
this bright kitchen and the rusty light fixtures anchor the space.

 Luxurious materials like cararra marble 
were used in the master bathroom along with romantic lighting

 Everything was kept light in the master bedroom.  
Dark furniture pieces were painted pastel colors 
to achieve a relaxed coastal look

 Mint green and bright orange liven up this little girl's room, 
and is a slight departure from the neutral colors in the rest of the house.

 Hooks for beach towels and hats and a cozy built-in 
with storage and are functional as well as beautiful.

Do you have a favorite room?

  1. It's all lovely! My favorite room is the kitchen.

  2. I love this casual beachy vibe. The colors are so fresh. And I have fond feelings of Venice Beach, spent lots of time there in my twenties. :)


Let me know what you think....
