If you’ve read my blog for a while, you know I don’t only post about coastal interiors, but you surely know that they are a big part of this blog. When I first saw this coastal home located in California, I knew its neutral interiors would suit our taste.
Designed by Brandon Architects, Inc. and built by Patterson Custom Homes, this home is full of beautiful coastal interior design and decorating ideas. The charming and organized white kitchen with large island is a must-see, as is the very relaxing master ensuite filled with neutral fabrics and textures.
This home is the kind of place that keeps getting better. Take a look and let me know what you think!
Coastal Home with Neutral Interiors
A two-story foyer is often impressive, especially if a welcoming view like that.
Note the office on the second floor with double barn doors.
Beautiful light filled open plan family room and kitchen.
The family room centers around a large slipcovered ottoman and cozy limestone fireplace. You can’t miss the soothing neutral feel of this entire space.
Chairs are similar to the “Gaston Chair” from Layla Grace.
The white kitchen cabinet with black counters features a large kitchen island with “Urban Electric Co. Michael Amato Chisholm Hall Pendants”.
The breakfast area off of the kitchen includes a salvage wood trestle dining table paired with beautiful chairs.
This transitional dining room feels cozy with the round table and upholstered chairs.
The chandelier in this dining room is from “Restoration Hardware, Camino Round Chandelier Forged Iron”.
On the second floor, you will find sliding double barn doors bringing a rustic charm to the home office.
Dream Home Office
This is truly a dream home office with two separate working stations and plenty of storage.
Turquoise Paint Color
Barn doors are painted in “Benjamin Moore Wythe Blue HC-143”.
With a neutral color scheme, the master bedroom is pure serenity! I am loving the mirror above the bed.
Chairs are the “Layla Grayce Garfias Chair”.
This bathroom is neutral but full of personality. Vanities are from Restoration Hardware.
Crema Marfil Marble
Gorgeous bathroom with marble flooring and honed crema marfil marble countertop.
Here, a view of the foyer and staircase leading to the basement.
Flooring is white oak floor with a whitewash finish.
This is one of the most stylish man cave I’ve seen in a while! I love the bluestone countertop in this bar and the built-in wine cellar.
Not only the floors are stunning in this home, even the ceiling gets some enviable reclaimed hardwood boards.
Back of the House
This home is lovely inside and out! Notice the grassy yard and the beautiful architectural details.
Great covered patio with stone fireplace.
The patio decor feels very natural and comfortable.
This built-in bench is made of concrete. Isn’t it fun?
Did you like this home? I really like the neutral interiors. They feel calm, relaxing and I have to say that I am really liking living with less color lately. I want to get in a room and have a sense of calmness, and that is often found in neutral rooms.
Talking about calmness, I have to say that I failed trying to have a calming weekend. I meant to take it easy during the weekend, but instead, I worked much more than I should. Not to mention we, as a family, tried to play some board games today and it was not “calm” at all. We love board games, but sometimes we can get a bit too competitive and for some reason, today it was one of those days… LOL I guess it has to do with the fact we all went to bed a bit too late last night after watching a movie together. Honestly, I am not the same person if I don’t sleep enough… Oh, not even 5 gallons of coffee can improve my mood! LOL
It’s funny but, when you have a tiring day and if you look back, you should always get something positive from it. Today was a loud day, the kids were grumpy and I was even grumpier than them, but at the end of the day, we all could calm down a little, have dinner together and feel more at peace. We even tried to flip the “bad” day into a “better” day by getting some frozen yogurt after dinner. Chocolate helped with my mood… it always does!
Looking back, I can see it as a tiring, loud day, but a day where we all felt alive. We argued during the game (why all of the kids were teaming up with my husband? Didn’t they see he was winning because of that? Arrgghhh LOL), but now, at the very end of the day, I feel that everything went the way it should have.
Sometimes we do have bad days, we can’t stand the noise, the heat, everything seems to be going against you. We all have days like that and guess what? That’s okay! Life is made of good and bad moments and all of that is there to make you feel alive.
One thing I know is that we must let our emotions live. In fact we should stop suffocating our thoughts and our emotions as often as most of us do. Controlling our emotions is different from suffocating them. Perhaps we would have healthier people in our society if we were taught to live our lives giving more freedom to our emotions. We probably should learn how to express our emotions in a healthier way instead of putting them down, stuck them in a deep place and pretend they don’t exist.
Notice your emotions and feel them when they’re present. Being real is about being natural _ nothing less than that.
Learn from what you feel and what you think. Accept your changes and be open to grow. After all, life is too short to live blandly.
