Balboa Island Beach House with Coastal Interiors

Monday is knocking on our door, so why not start this beautiful week looking at a relaxed, low-maintenance beach house?

Designed by Anne Michaelsen Design and Sinclair Associates Architects, and located on Little Balboa Island, only an hour south of Los Angeles, this beach house brings coastal interiors to the next level. With a more mature approach, this coastal home features a more masculine feel with a hint of contemporary design.

Built for a couple with three grown children, this beach house seems to be the perfect place to entertain or simply enjoy quiet life by the water.

Take a look… wouldn’t you also love to live here?

Nothing was overlooked here, from its timeless architectural details to the welcoming coastal landscaping.

With a more grown-up coastal style, this living room carries some nautical elements but in a very subtle way. The stunning stone fireplace with distressed wood, along with neutral furnishings, bring a natural feel to this space.

Chairs are by Mimi London.

Pocket Patio Doors

The doors on both sides of the living room retract into wall pockets, leaving the room completely open to the bay’s sights and sounds. Western Aluminum makes these doors and there is a very small rail embedded in the stone floors to make it easier to slide them.

The shades are Natural Wovens.

Sofa is by A. Rudin, using a Glant fabric.

The stone used on the fireplace is the same stone as the exterior stone work; a limestone slump stone called Palamino. The mantle was fabricated from an old beam salvaged from the original house on the property. The beams were distressed and wire brushed to achieve this patina.

The lamps are Bella Floor Lamps from David Sutherland Showroom and the chairs are Mimi London.

Bookshelves flank the bottom of the staircase adding plenty of storage for some special decorative pieces.

The stunning blue glass decor is a piece of Kryptonite. I guess Super Man is not welcome here. :)

The piece was bought at a small boutique called Veridian in Costa Mesa, CA.

Kitchen

This coastal kitchen opens to the rest of the main floor and the designer wanted it to feel dressed and tailored.

The countertop material is 3/4′ thick slab of white Quartzite. The material is as impermeable as granite. Equally resilient are the floors, covered in seagrass limestone. The lightly honed finish resists slipping.

The chairs and banquette are from A.Rudin. Barstools are from Mimi London LA.

The kitchen light fixture was very expensive, made with pure crystal globes and cost 20k plus. Would you pay this much for lighting?

Entertaining

The beach house offers a great patio, but if privacy is needed, the rooftop is the best place to be. The rooftop deck is practically self-sufficient, with its own kitchen, seating area, dining table, daybed and bath.

Railings

The railings in California need to have 4′ space clearance maximum. Here, the architect used a traditional rail and glassed it in with stainless steel support, that floated the glass from the railing.

Quiet Waters

Life can be a little calmer if we stop for a minute and appreciate what surrounds us. Watch the sunset, take a walk, stop to listen the birds in your backyard.

The week is just starting… how are you going to choose to live it?

Hi, my beautiful friends! How are you doing today? Did you have a nice weekend? I really hope you did!

I want to thank many of you for being so kind and taking the time to write and share your concerns, prayers and your wonderful tips on how to deal with my new lactose and gluten-free diet. Like I mentioned last Friday, my doctor asked me to not eat anything with gluten or lactose until August because of a stomach issue I am having for more than a year now. I couldn’t help but to feel helpless and totally lost but many of you left comments and sent emails explaining more about this and sharing some wonderful tips. I have read all of them and I will get back to you soon. I just want you to know how much I appreciate you taking the time to actually write to me.

This weekend was actually pretty good. I read a lot about gluten and lactose and I am a little more familiar with these diets. I still have to learn a lot because, if you know me, you know I am a bread-kind-of-girl. I grew up baking bread with grandmother and it’s hard for me to live without the real deal. I have tried a couple of gluten-free breads and it seems that I found one that I am okay with. In fact, I went to a local grocery store and I was happy to find some healthy snacks. Some were horrible but others were really yummy. If anything, this diet will help me to be more focused on what I eat, which is always a plus, especially when you get to your mid-thirties. How life is changing!!! :)
I will keep you guys posted how this goes, ok? And please feel free to share your recipes, books and your favorite gluten-free and lactose-fee products with me. I have so much to learn still.Have a Blessed week, my dear friends and thank you for allowing me to share my life here. I love being transparent with you guys… :)

with Love,
