Party-Worthy Pantries

Oh what I would do for a walk in pantry!!!  I love this one above, the modern chandelier, white floor, dark cabinets -- everything is perfect.


You know how everyone congregates in the kitchen at parties?  I suspect with a pantry like these, people would gravitate toward it instead...  I know I would.

I love these semi-opaque doors. They would really make the kitchen seem more open and light.

Yup, this next one is a pantry, not a kitchen!

This one looks like it was built where a powder room might go...what a great idea if you have room for an extra little room in the floorplan.

California Coastal Beach Style in Interior Decorating

Thursday, April 28, 2011

I grew up on Cape Cod, a lovely beach community that retained its beachy feel even in winter.  I now live in another beach town about 45 minutes from the Cape, where the feel is exactly the same.  That feeling translates into all aspects of design around here -- the architecture, the landscaping, and of course the interiors.  So when I ran across these photos from various costal California residences, I expected to see more of the same beach style that I am used to.  I was a little surprised to see that the California beach style is subtly different from the East Coast beach style.  I haven't quite put my finger on how.  Maybe my fellow New Englanders can help me out!

Loving the free form capiz shells hanging over the bed!

The next four are by my design hero, Jeff Lewis. I would move into any Jeff Lewis house in a heartbeat, and live happily ever after!




How cool is the wavy flower mural in this next one? I love the colors and modern style of the flowers. A far cry from the pink and purple floral wallpaper (and shag rug) that I grew up with in the 70s!

I so want to do this to my family room, but I'd fall of the ladder FOR SURE.

Maybe these rooms have a bit more of an LA feel than the more historic feel of the Cape Cod area homes?  I don't know for sure what makes the two styles subtly different, but I'm a fan of both!
