Building a new home is almost like having a white canvas right in front of you. You have imagined your home, pinned many ideas, looked at tons of magazines and interior design blogs and the only thing you need now is to put all of your trust and ideas in someone that can make your dreams become reality. Take this 3500 sq ft Bayfront home, located in the heart of Newport Beach California, for example. The talented builder, Jake Winkle from Winkle Custom Homes, tore down an existing older home to make room for the new build. And, like with some white canvases, he created a home that is easy to consider a piece of art.
Interior designer Melisa Morgan, from Melissa Morgan Design, designed the crisp white coastal interiors balancing it with soothing neutral colors and décor pieces that respect their environment. In this home, you will also see many lighting and furniture by “Restoration Hardware Modern”, a brand new line from Restoration Hardware.
Built in 2016, this California new construction home also features a private dock and incredible bay views. Isn’t it great to see the dream of a new home come true? Get inspired with this one.
