a sophisticated beach house

This home is relaxed and elegant all at the same time.  The style is an eclectic mix of casual, coastal and vintage.  As one of the six homes featured on this year's Newport Harbor Home and Garden Tour, its soft color palette and intimate decor really drew visitors in.  Among the most talked-about features were the disappearing doors out to the backyard that create a huge indoor/outdoor space, the laundry/wrapping room and the spacious kitchen. 

The family room has a wet bar and 
wine room hidden in the corner.

Creative use of the stairway walls

Here are the dining and living rooms
at the front of the house

A lovely vignette in the dining room

I love the turquoise accents in the living room


Vintage accents are scattered throughout the home

Pretty pastel flowers adorn the table

Home tour guests have lots of questions 
for interior designer Stacia Dunnam,

Another pretty vignette in the dining room

The most gorgeous sand and seashell cake sits on 
the expansive white marble island.
Stay tuned for more details of this kitchen
in a future post.

The indoor and outdoor spaces become one

The home office is neutral and calm

Fun bedrooms

Souvenirs and sea treasures are perfect together in this weathered cabinet

The master bathroom has a circular motif

Pretty fabrics brighten up the master bedroom

The master closet was drool-worthy!

Here is the large wrapping/laundry room

An outdoor table is perfectly in-tune with the indoor decor.
