House Tour: Peter Pennoyer

We don’t know about you, but we love a cedar shake house. We’re pretty much convinced that you could slap cedar shakes on the ugliest cinderblock building in the world and instantly make it charming.

On the flip side, we think everything that Peter Pennoyer designs is so gorgeous that it would be charming even if it were built out of cinderblock.

Fortunately for us, this home is cedar shake and designed by the peerless Peter Pennoyer. It’s a pretty unbeatable combination!

Just peeking inside this lovely home feels restful. We’re instantly transported to a seaside escape made for relaxation and spending long, lazy days recharging and taking a break from the fast pace of the rest of the world.

This beautiful bay window is perfect for taking advantage of every inch of view while still feeling completely traditional and totally lovely.

This dining room proves that architectural details don’t have to be ornate to feel luxurious. The simplicity of the woodwork and built-ins in this room is in keeping with the more casual tone of the house while still making it feel perfectly planned down to the last inch.

From the stylish built-ins to the heavy custom doors, the architectural details in this home give it the feeling of total quality. Antique accents lend that collected feeling to this newer home.

A modern range hood and an antique-feeling island lend a lovely juxtaposition to this large yet cozy kitchen.

There is nothing like a Dutch door to add that homey feeling to a space.

Open shelving and a gardening sink keep clutter out of the kitchen–and ensure that fresh blooms abound all year long.

If we could choose one thing that our homes absolutely have to have, it’s light! These intricate windows add that in high style.

There’s no better accent in a master that feels like a sanctuary than a cozy reading nook. It’s the perfect place for coffee and PJs!

For the ultimate in inspiration, this is the ultimate office! No clutter, just a fabulous view.

We love a garden seat in the bathroom! It’s the perfect spot for storing bath essentials.

A fun, eclectic bar area is perfect for entertaining!

But, if you’re like us, you’d agree that there’s no place like the perfect porch for savoring a beautiful beach day.

We hope you have a fabulous day!

Good morning, chic friends! We’re celebrating the very first day of fall today by taking a trip to… Laguna Beach! There’s no reason not to savor warm weather just a little bit longer, right? Although, we have to admit, the falling leaves are absolutely lovely, and a sign of the cooler weather to come.

 The leaves are falling… The pumpkins and mums are everywhere… The nights are getting cooler (and darker!)… We think it’s safe to say that fall is firmly here and winter is right around the corner.

 But that’s no reason to pack it up and head indoors. Especially if you have a fabulous water view! And adorable outdoor furniture!
