Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


Located in the exclusive Bay Shores coastal community in Newport Beach this coastal home is situated on a rare 8,000 s.f. wedge shaped lot.

Large open living spaces flow through expansive pocketing doors out to a courtyard complete with yard and built-in spa. The courtyard is located to provide maximum natural light and ventilation throughout the year. A 17’ x 6’ custom skylight over the staircase atrium highlights the grandiose scale of the interior and brings even more light into home. Great care was taken to insure that the comfortable scale of the interior spaces is maintained throughout the home. This includes wide hallways, tall vaulted ceilings and a lot of natural light. The aesthetic was derived from traditional East Coast architecture, blending natural materials such as wood siding, shingle roofing and quarried stone. Detailed millwork inside and out accentuates the highest level of craftsmanship and quality needed so close to the ocean.

This coastal home inspired me with some new ideas and I hope it does the same to you! Have fun around here!


 Coastal Home

 This charming California coastal home measures 5,770 s.f. and it has 5 bedrooms & 5.5 baths and an immaculate front yard!

 Coastal Home Architecture

The front entrance is spectacular! The lanterns are the Bevolo Williamsburg lantern with the original bracket.

The stones are called shadow grey and the front door’s paint color is a custom by Dunn Edwards.

Exterior Paint is “Whisper White”, also by Dunn Edwards.

Dining Room

This dining room is elegant and inviting and it has great millwork!


Stunning combination of fabrics and you can’t miss the feminine wallpaper and lighting.

Living Room

The formal living room is cozy and very stylish. Gorgeous color palette!

Living Room Design

Paint color is a custom matched color by Dunn Edwards. Notice the timeless marble mantel.

 Home Office

In my opinion, the perfect home office has plenty of storage and soothing colors… just like this one! Don’t you also love this space?

Kitchen Design

It’s hard to not like the overall look of this space. The kitchen is incredible and huge, while the eating area is casual yet very charming.

 We Eat to Live, We Don’t Live to Eat! 

This nook is perfect for quick meals or for that afternoon coffee with croissants and your favorite magazine. 🙂

The sign “Eat” can be found here.


Another view of the kitchen and the eating nook.

Kitchen Island size: 12 feet.

 Work Area

 The island wood is white oak with no stain.

 Family Room

The family room has a fairly neutral color palette and great furniture layout. The sliding doors bring the outdoors in.

 Frames & Mirrors

This is a fun way to display your favorite pictures and mirrors. For fun and affordable mirrors, visit flea-markets and garage sales and don’t be scared to paint them in a funky color! Add interest to your home without breaking the bank! 😉


Floors are solid french white oak stained on site with a custom color.


This bedroom reminds of a sunny day on a sandy beach! It’s coastal without being too obvious, which is always more appealing.

Ceiling Height: approx. 14′.


 What an inspiring bathroom! I can’t get enough of the floors and honestly, the entire space!

 Marble Shower

 This marble shower is gorgeous! I love the details and how spacious it is.

 Patio & Pool

This backyard is perfect if you prefer spending time relaxing by the pool instead of mowing grass! 🙂

 Low-Maintenance Backyard

Perfect for entertaining!

 All Lights on You

Isn’t it a fabulous home inside and out?


Do you have a favorite room? I love the overall look of this home, but I have to say that I am in love with the bathroom. I don’t think I would love the maintenance required for that marble shower, but I can’t complain about its looks! Isn’t it incredible?

Thank you all for stopping by! I am busy today getting some things ready for my birthday this week. It should be fun!!! And I have to say that I feel soooooo happy and grateful for celebrating one more year of life. This is something we should never take for granted. Being alive, being able to be with our loved ones and enjoying the ups and downs of life is the best gift we can receive. 

So, enjoy today. Today is all we have… yesterday isn’t here anymore and tomorrow is unsure. This moment is here to be used wisely and with love… love for yourself, love for the people around you and love for life itself.

Don’t wait for anything to happen to be happy. Happiness should never depend on things.

Happiness is created with gratitude.

Shall happiness grow within you with each breath you take.

Have a blessed week, my friends! 🙂

 with Love,

    Such a beautiful home! Hard to pick a fav room…probably the family room. The large glass slider linking the room to the outside is a real wow factor for me! I also love that rug in the dining room! The marble shower is a show stopper but agree with you about cleaning it 😉

    Hope you have wonderful birthday!
