Ocean View Terrace
Newport Beach, California
In the living room, the dark Barclay Butera Home “Regency” chairs create a more collected look and enhance the architectural space. The upholstered “Carmel” chair in blue-and-white ikat from Barclay Butera Home brings the colors of sand and ocean into this living room. Though only slightly formal, the room achieves a serene balance of luxury and relaxation. With the addition of a rustic mirrored chandelier and distressed dining chairs, the dining room becomes a cozy place to entertain. My affection for navy-and-white stripe extends into the guest bedroom of this serene beach home. The balance of the room is a thoughtful articulation of cream and sand. Repeating the color scheme of the guest room in a downstairs sitting room, a “Sussex” sofa, “Somerset” chair, and “Devon” storage ottoman, all from Barclay Butera Home, give the room a comfortable spirit. This might be the best room in the house, with views spilling all the way down to the beach. Even the master bath is finished with rich architectural detailing. Paneled wainscoting surrounds the room; marble tile covers the floor. Tall French doors bring daylight in and open to a private terrace. A vintage claw-foot tub delivers a classic silhouette, while dark wood cabinetry provides a striking contrast to the shimmery atmosphere. In the bedroom, vintage paddles and a surfboard mounted on ivory walls plus a blue paisley comforter enliven this guest bedroom. It’s fun to have one
room that pushes the strong nautical theme.
