Bright Bay Front Home--Before & After

Recently, my friend, Cindy completed the renovation
 of her sunny, Newport Beach bay front home.
There are classic nautical touches throughout.
These girls are enjoying their new home 
(who wouldn't?).
This is a before photo of the living room.
They stripped and stained the wood floors, added decorative treatment to the beams and painted the walls and ceiling a gleaming Benjamin Moore Super White.
Here is a before photo looking the other direction.
Here it is after they installed a wall and 
cabinet for the television.
You sense the family's personalities.  
Cindy's husband plays the guitar and piano 
and their daughter is an artist.
Cindy collects star fish (notice above the television); 
real, ceramic, metal, glass-blown, etc. on her travels.
The fireplace was awkward before and

and lovely after.
A charming window seat was added.
This is the kitchen before.
Great vision, Cindy!

Here it is after Adrian, the contractor, worked his magic.  
I love the elements that Cindy selected such as the 
straight edge on the white marble and the slate floor.  
The counter stools are from Restoration Hardware.
The glass cabinets reflect a lot of light.  
Cindy chose polished chrome for the finishes.

Aren't these cool hand blown pendants from Cleveland Art?
For a door handle, they installed a 
polished stainless steel boat cleat.
Well, I think I will just join Cindy and Debbie 
on the porch for coffee...and never leave.

There's more to show you of this home...stay tuned.

I'm going to the 
in Los Angeles starting tomorrow.  Anyone else?
