Subdued formality drove the design process for this Southern California home for clients who loved being near the water but without the “display of shells and pieces of driftwood” according to designer Barclay Butera. This home was designed for year-round living with a casual elegance that befits its French styled decor in honor of the homeowners style.
Reflecting individual personality in the way interior spaces are designed is a solid decorating trend and when applied in a livable lifestyle is a beauty to behold. The combination of color, scale of furnishings, symmetry and accent pieces eases the formality of this classically designed interior which speaks to using and enjoying the things we love in our everyday living.
A touch of blue and white quietly make their statement from the entry to the master bedroom while being anchored by touches of glamour seen in the use of gilded finishes, crystal chandeliers and marble.
An inviting kitchen allows you to be yourself and avails you to enjoy casual entertaining with its double island or personal time enjoying the expanse of windows that fully embrace the flow of natural light pouring into the space.
Special touches customize this home with personal style, walls and mill work, decorative French-inspired furnishings, luxury sheers that embrace the glamorous ceiling height and many more indulgences that make this house a home. Not just a show house but a well-designed and comfortable home to relax in and enjoy for many years to come!
