Check out this Malibu cozy beach house total renovation from Barbara Grushow Designs. Oh mi goodness, am drooling.....
A room full of collected treasures mixed with crisp denim blue stripes, and natural elements of white seashells and a classic sisal area rug screams "coastal", and I think can be very welcoming.
Another glimpse of that glorious view! The wood elements in the twisted lamp bases and those fabulous honey-toned polished chunky wood side tables enhance the nature outside and warm up the room beautifully. Not too sure about the fringe on the lamp shades - I might have chosen simple natural textured linen...
Not so sure that I would have that many things on my coffee table, I really need a spot for books and my coffee cup, but I do like the blue and white pottery bowl full of mosaic seashell balls. And a beach room can always use a vintage model sailboat!
Using the same denim blue and white striped upholstery fabric on the dining room chairs does a good job of tying the two rooms together. It also gives the dining room a more casual inviting feel. Love that round bamboo mirror - very British Colonial!
Totally decadent and totally Southern California - can't you just imagine having a dinner party beside the sea with your very own outdoor fireplace? I think the hanging candle fixtures and blue glass Moroccan style lanterns just add that extra special element.
Or maybe we should dine out here with a gorgeous Pacific Ocean sunset? The tiny shell covered candelabra is a very nice touch!
You can see all of the interior portfolio shots of this gorgeous Malibu Beach home on Barbara Grushow's site - Barbara Grushow Design. Lovely work. Reminds me a little of Barclay Butera's style, but a little less formal.
Have a great Tuesday!
