Are you feeling relaxed after the weekend? If you’re like me, I surely could use an extra day… all weekends seem to go by way too fast. If you feel the same way, this new “Beautiful Home of Instagram” will bring you right back to weekend!

Before we start talking about this house, I need to say that if you’re on Instagram you need to start following Caroline Kilmartin of @caro_kmartin – her home feels like breathing fresh air or walking on a sandy  beach. Its coastal vibe immediately relaxes you and calms any stress level. Here, the homeowner shares more details of her newly-built California beach house.

 

“I was pregnant with our first child when my husband and I decided we needed a larger space to fit our growing family.  After searching tirelessly for a home in our area, we decided to build a house in Manhattan Beach, California. Our architect, Joyce Flood, helped us develop the layout and my sister and I did the interior and exterior design.  The entire process took almost two years and while there were plenty of challenging moments, we couldn’t be happier with the results.

Our “must-haves” included both a large living space to hang out in that was open to the kitchen and looked out to a backyard and enough bedrooms to accommodate our future family and guests.  Since we live in California, we also really wanted an outdoor space that we can enjoy year-round and our children can easily play in.”

Foyer

The foyer is two stories and has a dozen windows to allow plenty of light. Throughout the house there are lots of windows because I love having as much natural light as possible.

All walls, unless otherwise stated, are painted in Simply White by Benjamin Moore.

We created a formal dining space but still wanted it to feel casual and warm for friends and family to gather and eat.  The dining table is a 10 foot salvaged wood farm table from Restoration Hardware with a large coco bead chandelier on top.  Custom built-in cabinets painted in Simply White by Benjamin Moore add plenty of storage for servingware.

The dining chairs are from Lulu & Georgia.

In between the Kitchen and Great Room, we put a beverage bar with a built-in drawer fridge to store drinks. The cabinets are custom built with a walnut wood and a glass countertop. We used open shelving above in matching walnut wood to display glassware.  

Kitchen

Kitchen Windows We wanted this area to be large and open with plenty of windows looking out to the backyard #kitchenwindows #kitchen #windows #kitchenwindow

This is where we hang out the most in the house – where we cook and eat, lounge on the sofa, watch TV, and where the children play. We wanted this area to be large and open with plenty of windows looking out to the backyard.

The rattan pendant lights over the island add a little coastal feel. Similar Pendants: here & here.

Breakfast Nook

I loved the idea of a breakfast nook where we can eat our breakfasts and weeknight meals together.  This one is surrounded by windows with a custom built walnut table. We made the back cushions from scratch.

Kitchen Details

On one side of our kitchen and surrounding the built-in fridge/freezer are open shelves with white painted brick to add some texture.  Just behind that wall is a walk-in pantry with open shelving and across from that is the butler pantry with a walnut wood countertop.

Family Room

Since we couldn’t get an ocean view property, we created our own water view by placing the pool in front of the great room and adding folding glass doors that walk out onto the pool area.

The sofa, from Restoration Hardware (similar here), is large and comfortable to fit plenty of family and friends.

Chandelier: West Elm.

Fireplace

I wanted the feel of a real wood burning fireplace but I also wanted it to look clean and modern. So we put a custom built gas fireplace with a herringbone brick pattern inside and used clean white lines on the face.

Powder Room

Kensington Green by Benjamin Moore Kensington Green by Benjamin Moore Paint Colors Kensington Green by Benjamin Moore #KensingtonGreenBenjaminMoore

The Powder Room is small so we didn’t want any large overbearing vanities.  We had one custom built from Caesarstone’s Concrete quartz which was made to look like one large slab of concrete.  The walls in this room are painted Kensington Green by Benjamin Moore. The wall faucet is from Kohler’s Purist collection.

Mirror: West Elm.

Mudroom

Mudroom Pet Shower We added a “doggie shower” which we use to rinse off when we come home from the beach With two kids, this little shower is a huge blessing #Mudroom #PetShower

To the side of the foyer and connected to our garage is a mudroom to store our shoes and coats. We also added a “doggie shower” which we use to rinse off when we come home from the beach. With two kids, this little shower is a huge blessing.  The bottom half of the shower is tiled with Alyse Edwards Tongue in Playing it Coal (similar here & here) and the top half has a white waterproof siding. We added a little bench in the shower with Atlas II tile.

Laundry Room

New Hope Gray by Benjamin Moore 2130-50 Laundry room cabinet paint color New Hope Gray by Benjamin Moore #NewHopeGrayBenjaminMoore

We decided to add a little pop in the laundry room with Medina Grey cement tile from Overstock.  The cabinets are custom built and painted in New Hope Gray by Benjamin Moore with a large farmhouse sink and Pure White countertops from Caesarstone.

Guest Bedroom

We host many guests throughout the year so we wanted to create an inviting and comfortable guest room with a fireplace and private bathroom. The bed from Anthropologie is the main piece and I love the mango wood design.
