This warm and inviting Laguna Beach home takes it’s cues from the South. The clients, originating from Texas, wanted their home to feel relaxed yet sophisticated and a place their friends would always feel welcome. Warm wood floors throughout the house compliment the soft paint palette. The living room’s French doors open to a gorgeous koi pond surrounded by lush tropical plantings and a natural granite boulder waterfall. The dining areas required user-friendly round tables to allow guests to linger after dinner in long conversations. The furnishings needed to be comfortable, with traditional styling for a timeless feel. Classic hand-knotted area rugs and richly appointed window treatments completed the look.
