a cozy cottage in Venice Beach

This Venice Beach home has a casual relaxed elegance
 that’s 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 paneled ceiling sets the tone for 
this bright kitchen and
the rusty light fixtures

anchor the space.

 Luxurious materials like carrara 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?

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. :)
