UncategorizedLight Filled Bayshores Home TourMarch 2, 2012 By classiccasualhome 57 Comments My friends, Debbie and Claire, have great taste and I always enjoy showing you their work. So imagine the wonderful job they did when they collaborated on the design of Claire’s parent’s house! Meet Kathryn, Claire’s darling mom. They built this home in the charming Newport Beach, California neighborhood of Bayshores. Here is the entry of the single story main house. I like the elegant mix of the Louis Philippe mirror with the crystal sconces above an antique English table. Here is the comfortable but chic living room. Claire’s father’s antique book collection gives this room character. The high windows on either side of the fireplace bring in lots of light. Debbie custom designed the coffee table and the two club chairs are covered in Osborne and Little linen. Look at the detail on these pillows. The flat welt trim on the center pillow is made from the Fortuny fabric on the two side pillows. (Note to self: steal this idea). How about this jewel of a powder room? The shell on the mirror is in keeping with the beach theme. The wallpaper is by Old World Weavers, the faucet is from Waterworks and the mirror is from Schumacher. Kathryn’s children and grandchildren enjoy family parties here in the dining room. The chandelier is from Niermann Weeks and the table and chairs are from Ebanista. Here is more of Debbie’s attention to detail with Scalamandré tasseled seat cushions and trimmed drapes. The painting is by Ray Turner. This fabulous tea cart is one of Claire’s finds. The built-in side board in the dining room must be pretty at night in the candle light. Thanks so much, Kathryn. We’ll be back for the rest of the tour soon.
