Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas

 

Whenever you say “Malibu Beach House,” you set the bar up high. You don’t really imagine a sweet, little cottage. The little sweet cottages are long time gone and massive, modern and ultra-chic houses are built and often put on the market for multi-millions. Does it appeal to you? Well, honestly speaking, I have my heart set on the little & sweet cottages we often see, but I wouldn’t say “no” to a house like this one.

This house is newly built and it’s just above of one of Malibu’s premier beaches. It has been meticulously designed by architect Doug Burdge with the interesting combination of an exterior made of stone and a modern interior. The Poliform kitchen is the big star of this house, with the exception of the ocean, of course. If you get scared by huge houses, this one might feel comfortable for you with its 6,152 sq ft. of living space and 2,500 sq. ft. of roof top deck, which features an outdoor fireplace all sitting above the Pacific Ocean. Yes, dreams can be built!

 

By The Sea

Sardinia meets Malibu.

Drive & Dream

Perfect landscape by the beach.

Before You Come In

The back of the house.

The Reason

The reason people dream about living by the ocean. Imagine waking up everyday to see this!

Living Room

At first I thought the furniture seemed too dark for a beach house, but when you look at the kitchen you’ll find the importance of having these hues in the living room. It creates a good flow.

Open

If you have a view like that, you need to have open spaces to the outdoors.

Fireplace

A nice place to be.

The Main

I really like this picture. You have a good feel about the design.

Not a White Kitchen

This is a marvelous kitchen.

Eat

I love the stools, they go perfectly with this kitchen.

Cook & View

So spacious! Imagine cooking here and looking at that view! I’d keep burning myself!

Fruit  Bowls

A very easy thing to adopt to any kitchen are these gorgeous, yet simple bowls of different kind of fruits. These really pop in this kitchen, adding beautiful colors.

Closer

You can use any fruit you like with simple glass bowls. Love this idea!

Flowers

Adding fresh flowers is always a nice touch.

Call All the Chefs

It’s a large kitchen. I usually like more traditional kitchens, but this one really got my attention. I simply love it!

Eating Area

Great table and gorgeous chairs.

Sculpture

The staircase looks almost like a sculpture here.

Games Room

Playing with that view would be even more fun, huh?

Staircase

Gorgeous architectural details!

The Bridge

Truly stunning.

Master Bedroom

I like this bedroom, but I can’t say I like the brown rug. It’s just too dark for this bedroom, especially with a view like that. Lighter  is better.

Bed & Pilows

This bed is pretty and I can’t imagine it without those pillows. Aren’t they great? It diminishes the masculinity of this bedroom.

Other View

Fireplace in a bedroom is always an added bonus.

Master Bathroom

That tub! Yes, that tub! Amazing!

Luxe

It feels really sleek and luxurious at the same time.

Flow

This is truly a beautiful place.

Your View

If this was my house, you’d often find me here, listening to the waves.

Guest bedroom

Fun colors here.

Guest Bathroom

It feels really open. Cowhide looks great in a bathroom, but I’m not sure if it belongs there.

Balcony

It wouldn’t be bad to be a guest in this house, eh?

By the Sun

Just bring me a smoothie, please.

Rooftop

This is another amazing place! Wow!

Summer

Can imagine spending your summers here?

Friends

Long conversation spot.

Nights By The Fire

This spot is gorgeous during the day and I can just imagine it during the night, with the stars…

Just Us

Very private.

Let’s Eat

This reminds me so much of Italy.

Beauty

Surreal.

The Beach

I’d be here. Any time, any day.

Pool

This pool wouldn’t be a bad idea either!

House Of Dreams

Unique stone exterior.

Sun Kissed

I can’t stand being in the sun for too long, but I’d definitely spend some fun time here.

Sunny Day

I adore the outdoor furniture of this house.

Splash

The house is unbelievable, but what really impresses me is the ocean and the dream to live by it.

Did you have fun with this one? If you’re asking how much they’re trying to sell this house for, the price is $26 million. Hard to imagine all that money, but I don’t post houses like this for what they cost, but for how impressive and inspiring they can be. Besides, it’s always nice to dream, right?

BABY NEWS! Now, I know this is not related to this post. But many of you know that I was supposed to find out yesterday if I’m expecting a Boy or a Girl, right? We had suspense from our doctor. The hospital wouldn’t send the report to his office until the very last minute, but we finally found out we’re expecting a….

BABY BOY!!!!

I had a strong feeling it would be a boy and I really wanted my baby to be a boy, so I honestly couldn’t be happier! And I wanted to share this happiness with you all. Just, please, pray to everything to go perfectly with the baby and my pregnancy.

Thank you so much for your support and love.

Wishing you a sunny day!

  2. wonderful news! another baby boy! hope you are doing great almost all the time, Luciane. the house and location are so nice. love the 4th pic. I can’t take part in the give away as a non US or Canadian. big hugs to you

  3. congratulations! how exciting that you can now daydream all about HIM.

    not feeling this beach house at all. don’t think the stone exterior works with the contemporary architecture and at least from the images everything seems one texture: HARD. give me a tiny cozy old bungalow on that ocean, please.

    love.

    I must have visited your sight ten times yesterday looking for some news….I am beyond THRILLED for you!! Now I must go back and look at the house, because I scrolled so quickly to hear about the baby that I didn’t even look. Glad you are doing so well, sweet friend ~

  5. Timothy said,

    Congrats on your baby!

    I love the stone exterior, the landscaping, pool and decks, but I am not a fan of the interior design. I only like the Guest Bedroom. Everything else is “trying too hard.” The beautiful stone exterior deserves a more natural interior.

    $26 million seems very bloated, even for a Malibu Beach House.

  6. First thing first…CONGRATS on the baby boy news!! So incredibly exciting. Cannot wait to meet/see him in blogland!
    Now onto this house….the setting is beyond! Love the dramatic views/vistas and the way its perched up so high to take advantage of the sweeping views…incredible! BUT I would want to rip out all the furniture/darkness, paint the walls, and lavish the house with a white and blue crisp ocean inspired palette…..keep the kitchen, what an amazing space to entertain and do the same treatment in the bedrooms. Leather and furry throws do not have a place in a beach house, sorry! The pool and outdoor setting is just exquisite and perfect as is.
    The price tag…ugh just a bit high!

  7. Ahhhh that is wonderful news … so happy for you. When my daughter found out what she was having it was incredible. She really wanted to have a girl and even though it would be great either way, it was so wonderful to have that information. Now the baby will seem even more ‘real’ and you can PLAN THE NURSERY!!! 🙂 I’m so glad you shared.
    Now… this house! It doesn’t seem like a beach house – sooo dark. But I do love the outdoor spaces. And that view – stunning! xo Sherri

  8. Boys love their mammas! I am sure he will be a JOY to you your whole life. Wouldn’t it be fun to have a party with extended family at this house for a week or two?

  9. Sharon said,

    Congratulations Luciane! Praying all goes well for you and your Baby Boy!

  10. Erin said,

    A boy!!! How so very exciting!!! I’m so happy for your family and will keep you guys in my prayers!

    Side note: This home is INCREDIBLE! What a dream! I love all the clean lines! The outdoor area is great too!

  11. SizzleandZoom said,

    Congrats on the baby news! You are in my thoughts and prayers. Happy journey! The home is close to me and has a beach so I love it. The price keeps this home in my dreams for now.

  12. Tereza said,

    Luciane!
    Parabéns, um menininho, que venha carregado de bençãos e com muita saúde.
    Quanto ao post, a casa é fantástica, aliás, casa não, mansão, certo?
    As pedras, a fachada, o entorno, os espaços imensos, amei.
    Beijos

  13. Jana said,

    That house is absolutely stunning!

    Congratulations on your baby boy news! I have 2 boys myself and I love raising brothers! Although I think a girl thrown into the mix would make it perfect but it just isn’t how it was meant to be for us…

  14. PriscilaPetersDecor said,

    It’s a boy! So happy for you. If one day we decide to have a child, I would love to have a boy. Congrats.

    The house is to modern for me, but like you said, it’s Malibu….

  15. Marianne {Style For Living} said,

    Yay, a boy! So excited for you!!! This beats the Malibu house any day of the week! xo

  16. Jessica said,

    Oh Luciane…the blue of the beautiful ocean for your beautiful, soon to be here baby boy…congratulations!!!
    I think one of the rooms in this amazing house would make a fine nursery…don’t you?! There’s a masculine feel to it all and it would be just perfect!
    Take care and many prayers for a safe, happy & healthy pregnancy, also for beyond! 🙂
    xoxo J~

  18. Cottage Coastal Store, Inc ~ Kim said,

    Very nice! Thank you for sharing this Malibu home. Of course, I am more cottage-y but nice to see a variety of homes! Also, congrats on the baby news…I have a “baby” boy too who is already 4.5 years old (but still my baby)! Yes, as another one of your readers mentioned..they love their mommas 🙂 Special bond. All my best ~ Kim

  19. Carolyn@Sweet Chaos said,

    Boys are the best!! Of course, I am a little biased as I only have boys 🙂 SO thrilled for you!! I’ll be praying for a safe pregnancy, smooth delivery and a healthy, happy, easy baby!! Lots of love to you! xoxo

  20. Kathy said,

    Oh my what a place…not one bit of it my taste, but I LOVED every square inch and think the designer and everyone involved in this home is way above and beyond genius…really a masterpiece here. Great Post…oh and I have to say little boys are the apple of a mom’s eye..I should know I had my apple and his little boy for a whole week and I’m still swooning..

    Wonderful news, darling Luciane!! Are you thinking of baby boy names yet?!
    As for the beach house, the setting is spectacular, but have to say, the place is firstly too big for me (I’m all about the cosy) and secondly too modern and masculine. Still gorgeous though!

    Love to you, pretty lady!

    Meera xx

  26. traci zeller designs said,

    I couldn’t concentrate on the house because I was scrolling down for the baby news. Congratulations!!! xo!

  27. mydeco said,

    Looks like a hotel it looks really bright and the utitlization of natural light looks amazing, great views too the interiors are finished perfectly need a little bit more colour I think. Off to design a similar style room now using mydeco’s 3D room planner now thanks for the inspiration!
