newport harbor home tour part three

The third house we’re featuring from last week’s home tour is designed by one of my favorite local designers Ashley Clark of sKout.

Not only was Ashley’s own home featured on the Newport Harbor Home Tour last year, but I’ve shared details and pics of this same home in 2017 before it was redecorated again by Ashley.

Take a look at the sophisticated updates that were made to this family-friendly home along with its charming  and cozy outdoor living spaces that are perfect for year-round entertaining.

serena & lily's must-have accessory

and a visit to historic crystal cove state beach

Historic Cottage #13 where they filmed the movie "Beaches"

Sunday was the perfect day for a little getaway down to Crystal Cove State Beach. If you’ve never been, it’s a charming little beach, just south of Newport. 

Barbara Hershey and Bette Midler in "Beaches"

It’s actually where the iconic movie “Beaches” starring Bette Midler was filmed, and here we are at the historic Cottage #13 where it all took place. Who can forget the song "Wind Beneath My Wings"?

Historic Cottage #13 and my pretty Serena & Lily Sydney Beach Towel

Summer is just around the corner, and I’ve already got my beach basket all set with my summer beach essentials, so it was just a grab-and-go moment on Sunday as we headed out the door.

Summer beach essentials ready at my front door

My number one item to pack is my new Serena & Lily Sydney Beach Towel. It’s large enough to double as a cozy picnic blanket on the beach, and that’s just what we did!

Sydney Beach Towels make great gifts!

After grabbing a few yummy French panini sandwiches at  my favorite café Moulin and a few bottles of my go-to  Pellegrino water, we were all set for a little beach time.

My favorite is the Navy color with cute green tassels!

I’ve been seeing several of Serena & Lily’s gorgeous towels at the beach already, so I was happy to get mine! Not only are they luxuriously plush, they're absolutely adorable! I just love the little green tassels!

Summer beach basket is also ready for days at the pool

Don’t you think these beach towels would make a lovely gift for a graduate, wedding or wedding shower… or even a summer birthday? I just love mine!

My top ten summer picks!

Serena & Lily is offering 20% everything off with code SUMMERPREP, excluding a few select items. The Memorial Day Sale starts May 22 and runs through May 28, 2019.

Here are my Serena & Lily Memorial Day favorites: 

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

newport harbor home tour part two

As I promised, I’m back with more on the home tour! As you saw on Sunday, we started the tour off down at Peninsula Point where this second home is also located, just a short walk away from the Belvue Lane home.

This black and white beachy farmhouse is situated on a sunny corner and is yards away from the world-famous Wedge surf spot.

Decorated by Heirloom Décor, this home has a definite fun and youthful vibe. As you walk up to the front door, you can take a peek past the Serena & Lily swings, past the French doors, and through to the lovely dining room and courtyard beyond.

That’s such a gorgeous view of this home and it sets the tone for the rest of the home… a sophisticated beach house, at its best!

I'm sharing some of my favorite rooms and you'll even get to see the amazing rooftop deck at the end of this post… ENJOY!

newport harbor home tour 2019

Oh, boy this was a bit of a busy week! As some of you know, Thursday was the Newport Harbor Home Tour, which happens to be my absolute favorite event of the whole year!

I’ve been working on sharing lots of pretty home tour pics on Instagram, here and here, and now I finally have all my ducks in a row, or rather pictures organized, so I can share them with you!

It started off as a very rainy morning here in Newport, but luckily by the time 10 o’clock rolled around, the sun was starting to shine and helped dry things up a bit and also  made the day much more pleasant.

So today I’m sharing the Belvue Lane home. Located in the charming Peninsula Point neighborhood, this home is just darling, and from the front, it looks like the quintessential American dream home!

I’ll be back soon with a peek at the other homes featured on this year’s tour.
