A Sunny California Abode

Bright, clean interiors really speak to me as we inch into spring.  My house feels dingy and blah, so I’ve been looking for some inspiration to lighten and brighten.  And where better to look than Manhattan Beach, CA and this house designed by Lucas Studio in Luxe Magazine?  The cheery look starts at the front door too- just look at that darling picture! who wouldn’t be happy coming home to that?  (If you love that minty door, try Sherwin Williams Spirited Green!)

Lots of white with hints of yellow and blue make this space so crisp but not boring.  But you would need to get all that white upholstery treated if you have kids and pets!

The beadboard ceiling, built ins, windows and the lantern make all that white interesting.  Oh how I wish I had ceilings this high!

A cozier den in which I’d happily curl up for a Netflix binge.

I love this beautiful blue painted table paired with the hints of gold and the painterly lamp.

It takes a brave person to paint this many cabinets light blue but it looks lovely.  I’m not a fan of the island lights, they look like food warmers to me, but that”s just me :) I’d prefer something glass like these or these.

I love that long pendant fixture.

A sweet banquette, and I love the rosy tones mixed with the light blue!

I’m a sucker for a navy library, that’s for sure.

A simple, neutral master suite that looks relaxing. I may have added a nice long bed pillow in a color (green?) for a smidge of color.

These outdoor spaces are pretty baller.  I wouldn’t mind sitting here all afternoon!
