Did you catch yesterday’s
Our clients raised their family in this ranch-style home in Orange County. They love the location, but it was time for a big update. The goal was to create a relaxed and classic coastal look with lots of space for entertaining.
The color was really dull and with one side of the home being stone, the exterior didn’t feel balanced.
One of the biggest changes to the exterior was the portico! Before it was very flat, and now we have a large, welcoming entrance with an amazing dutch door. We took out the one large window and replaced it with three taller windows spaced out. We carried the stone onto the other side to help the home feel balanced.

Paint colors are Chantilly Lace and Cobblestone Path by Benjamin Moore.
A CLASSIC COASTAL ENTRYWAY
The entryway is perfectly welcoming, with a classic coastal feel. It’s full of statements! With a vaulted ceiling that spans throughout the whole space, we used natural wood beams that tie beautifully with the new hardwood flooring. All these natural tones are contrasted with the iron lantern on the ceiling.

A RELAXED COASTAL SITTING ROOM
The space between the entry and dining room was large enough to create a sitting area! Our client wanted an intimate space that could be used for entertaining, and it’s so great to have a space for overflow when hosting. To offset the vintage rug we started by using a
One of the major themes you’ll see throughout the home is the bright and coastal feel of the space. It’s what our client wanted, but we achieved this look without going too “theme-y.” The direction really started to take shape when we pulled the textile schemes together. Intentionally avoiding a strict blue and white color palette of a typical “coastal” look, we mixed in warm textures, shades of green, and black accents.
We weren’t able to fit in another lounge chair, so we used this beautiful woven stool as extra seating. It also made a really cute moment with the stacked art.
Not only did we change the orientation of the dining table, but we also moved the door from the back corner to before the dining room starts! Now, the kitchen is more accessible and the dining room space is more defined.
Typically, you’d see either one large light fixture or a linear one that helps fill the long space of a dining table. Instead, we used two lights, which makes a beautiful statement. This one has a modern take on a traditional pendant that commands attention without stealing the show.
Our client has the cutest tiny arched door to their wine cellar. We matched the wood tones to go with the floor, ceiling, and built-ins.
If you look closely, you’ll see the Lamarr mirror peeking out!! The coastal texture in its frame was just enough to bring this space to life while keeping with the natural colors and decor. Its hand-woven natural lampakanai rope is detailed with a beveled mirror and double hardwood frame.
