If you knew me personally, you probably would know a few passions of mine, which includes the ocean… being by the sea makes me feel lighter and more connected with my soul. Featuring coastal homes tends to make me feel closer to this happy feeling, which I genuinely hope to extend to you today with this house tour.
Recently renovated by interior designer Raili Clasen (previously featured here), this home features interiors that feel comfortable and easy-going. Here, the designer shares more details about this renovation:
“Our clients, based in Boston, had just bought a beach house in California for their family to spend summers and asked if we would come take a look to just furnish and paint. From the outside, it seemed like an easy project… cute craftsman architecture, big windows, nice landscaping. When we opened the door, our jaw dropped. It had been re-modeled with just about every style of surface material that had trended over the last decade: steel countertops, contemporary tract lighting, four different pebble tiles in one bath, etc..
We were super honest with them knowing how much extra this project was going to be, but they decided they would go for it and do a brand new remodel. We named the project “California Craftsman” and wanted to make sure it felt like a beach vacation. Craftsman homes tend to run dark, so we kept the feel of the heavy wood beams and posts, but painted out everything bright white.
Overall, this house feels exactly like they dreamed about, beachy, cool and vacation-ready.” – Raili Chasen.
