House Tour: California Beach House

When Kim and Mark Dempster wanted to redesign their California beach home, the huge buoy light fixtures in Erin Martin’s window inspired them to ask her to become their designer. The unique nautical touches and coastal chic style didn’t stop there. We hope you love taking a peek inside this quaint, fabulously remodeled getaway as much as we did!

As if we didn’t have spring fever already… Are you dreaming of long days on the beach like we are? Thanks for stopping by today!

Things We Love: Paneled Ceilings

Anne Decker Architect
A few days ago, Mom and I were pondering a plain cathedral ceiling. The height was great, and we knew a statement light fixture would spruce the space. But that would only get us so far.

After a few minutes of deliberation, we decided that paneling was a must!

We adore the charm of paneling and how instantly it transforms a wall, especially that pesky, overlooked fifth one.
Jane Churchill Design
This kitchen is undeniably adorable. The splash of pink is so sweet, but it’s the ceiling that really caps it off for us.

Especially in a room that is paneled from floor to ceiling, we like the warmth of keeping the ceiling dark.
Roughan Interior Design
We are having a little kitchen envy. The copper vent hood, those gorgeous tiled wall. We think we might cook more in this room… Or at least make more tea.

Whenever we get in the mood that a totally white room will be boring, a picture like this brings us back to our senses.
Erin Martin Design
We generally think of painted paneling for beach homes, cottages and other casual spaces. This is a great reminder that it works in a more sophisticated spot as well.
Life of Polarn Per
We adore these floors! So gorgeous!

Could this room have any more character? A place for sleeping, eating, chatting and storing all our books… We think we could live right here. Who needs a kitchen anyway?

Everything Fabulous
A perfect way to end the post! Painted paneling, a chandelier, a white hide… these are a few of our favorite things 🙂
