Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas

You know I don’t post many contemporary homes because I love warm, welcoming and comfortable ones. Contemporary ones don’t usually have these qualities and I often think that many feel too cold. But from time to time I find a contemporary home that has been really well decorated and that proofs that a well designed home can feel welcoming no matter what.

This house, located in Montecito, California, has just been sold and the asking price was $8.5 mil. It has five bedrooms, five and half bathrooms, a beautiful cosmopolitan kitchen, gorgeous master with mountain views and plenty of outdoor space to enjoy the heat of California.

Take a look and let me know if you also think that modern houses can feel welcoming and warm.

Aerial View

It’s a very large home and it also has a beautiful guest house.


This entrance is fascinating. Love the door.

Living Room

This living room feels very uncluttered. Beautiful fireplace.

Ample View

This house feels really spacious. I really like the open space.


I can’t help but fall in love with a kitchen that has a fireplace. How nice is that?!

Family Room

This is one of my favorite rooms in the house. I think it’s welcoming for the whole family and the views are great!

Master Bedroom

This is a very spacious bedroom and I think I’d add another chair by the fireplace. Beautiful ceilings.

Master Bathroom

Wow! The huge shower and this bath are dreamy. Notice the beautiful wall for storage by the bath. Isn’t it neat?

Bring it Outside

So beautiful and private.

Guest House

I always wanted a guest-pool house and this one blends perfectly with its surroundings.

Back View

I love how the whole house seems to blend in perfectly with the area.

So, what do you think of this house? Do you like it? Did you think it’s welcoming and stylish at the same time?

Today, I’m planning on spending some time relaxing with my kids and organizing some things around the house. Tomorrow is my son’s last day of kindergarten. I just can’t believe how fast it went! It’s wonderful seeing your kids growing.

I wish you a peaceful, relaxing and very positive day!

  1. Love the entrance too…it has a lot of curb appeal. The inside is more “minimalist” than what I typically go for but is very well done, very calming and soothing and because of the courtyard like effect in the back, its a great house for entertaining and big bonus points for being in beautiful California!!

    *** G’ morning!!! This is so “NICE”~~~ it’s clean, fresh, uncluttered feeling is sooo charming to experience!!! (I’ll bet even the insides of their TRASH CANS looks “nice n’ organized!)…

    Thanks for sharing this with us!

    beautiful house! i like the outdoors and the fireplace. wonderful to hear from you, Luciane. I’m travelling for 4 months 🙂 I had a great time in Bulgaria seeing my parents and friends again. Do you already know a boy or a girl? great to have 3 kids soon…hugs to you

  5. Meera @ firstsense said,

    It’s gorgeous and I love the spacious feel, but I would probably end up messing with the existing symmetry of the decor and cosying it up a bit, being a creature of comforts 🙂

    Yes, it’s summer which for me actually means a very very busy time… struggling to find enough hours in the day for everything, even though we are having gloriously long days and evenings now.

    Hope you and the bump are doing well, sweet lady!

    This is so lovely! The outdoor space looks like a beautiful oasis.

    I love the open space – it’s necessary for dancing around, celebrating the purchase of an 8 million dollar home. It’s so simple and so beautiful. The outside is divine but I think more people should consider cactus gardens instead of grass because grass requires so much water and maintenance and cactus gardens are prettier anyway and they’re “greener” (in the eco-friendly sense). The animal print chair in the bathroom is such a stylish flourish.

    I like this home a lot. I like single story homes. This is a favorite of mine. I like everything about it.

  9. Nichole@40daysof said,

    I am loving this pool. We have entered the three months a year when I want a pool. I’m obsessed with them. I love how this one is mostly surrounded by grass. That’s my favorite. 🙂

    I like a more traditional home, but this home is lovely.
    Love the kitchen especially.
    Have a great day, Luciane.

  11. PriscilaPetersDecor said,


    Well, I like the open space & the natural light.

    Hope you have a relaxing day at home with your kids.

  12. michele@hellolovelyinc said,

    THAT ENTRANCE. for me everything else just sort of faded away after i glimpsed it. people underestimate the power of their front doors. these just beckon you to come closer.

    enjoy the outdoors, my sweet.


  13. All Of A Sudden Life Is Amazing said,

    Gorgeous, clean, and oh so inviting! Oh I would love to dip in that pool!

    Nice to meet you, as well! Thanks for dropping by my blog!

  14. for the love of a house said,

    I think it is a lovely, calm house, and I too, would put a chair or two in front the master fireplace;) Love the pool and grounds.
    how exciting for your sweet son! enjoy the day…

    I’m with you on contemporary but your right this is an exception

  16. Ann said,

    Love the animal print chair in the bathroom! And the bathtub is incredible. The house seems to have a very open feel which I like…thanks for sharing.

  17. Carrie @ Hazardous Design said,

    I agree with you Luciane, contemporary isn’t usually my “go to” style, but I can appreciate good design when I see it. If I had the cash, I’d move into this home in a heartbeat. I love the way it takes advantage of the views.

  18. designchic said,

    What a fun house…love the pool area – great for entertaining, and the tub to relax in after a long day…heavenly!!

  19. Barbara@HausDesign said,

    I agree on not usually liking contemporary homes but this one is positively fab! It is so open and classy – very, very nice….I’d live there for sure!
