weekend inspiration


Bar carts are so versatile and pretty, indoors or out.  
Keep a look out at yard sales or Goodwill for vintage ones.  
I got one last year for $15.

a newport beach home with a nantucket influence

the bunk room is sturdy
and charming enough to sleep 4 comfortably

Here is a sneak peek into one of the houses that is at the top of my "fun" list.  The colors and nautical influences just make me happy.

here is the more sophisticated master bedroom,
with just a hint of red

On May 16th, this home, along with 5 other spectacular homes,  will be open to be viewed on the Newport Harbor Home and Garden Tour.  We will be posting more photos of this gorgeous home after that!  Stay tuned...

the cobalt blue color and seashells create instant ambiance

a modern California ranch house

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 it's simplicity and creativity in combining modern comforts with vintage style. I hope you enjoy the tour...

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

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.
