Light Filled Bayshores Home Part II

We are back at Kathryn's house in Newport Beach, California
for the rest of the tour.
If you missed it, you can visit the living, dining and powder rooms HERE.
I am crazy about this wood topped island and
the flood of light from the skylighted ceiling.  Isn't it awesome?
The light fixtures are from Ann-Morris Antiques, Inc. in New York.
The veined Walker Zanger marble is gorgeous.

Kathryn's beautiful family is displayed on the gallery wall and you can catch a 
glimpse of the pretty powder room.  I brought those white tulips for Kathryn but that was 
the extent of our "staging."  Her home is always this lovely.

Adjacent to the kitchen is the family room decorated in chocolate and red.

The striped fabric is by Lee Jofa and the pillows are by David Eastman for Kravet/Lee Jofa.
Here is an alcoved breakfast area.  Charming Niermann Weeks light fixture and again
...lots of natural light.  The table and chairs are from Butera Home.
Such a serene master bedroom in neutrals and chocolate.
The fabric on the bed is from Old World Weavers and Fortuny with trim from Kravet/LeeJofa.

Behind the house is a separate garage with two guest rooms above it.  One of Kathryn's grandchildren asked "Ma, who lives in THAT house?"  Love the balcony and the flagstone path.

This hot tub surrounded by stone is a popular spot on chilly evenings.
Thanks, Kathryn, for the tour of your beautiful home.

Life is good
at the beach.

  6. Gorgeous! Love that wine fridge snuck into that island too. Have you helped some of your friends with the interiors of their homes? They are just beautiful. I love the striped Lee Jofa fabric on the couch too.

  10. What a great home. Did Kathryn decorate herself or did she have help. I love her choices on fabrics and color schemes. Red and browns look so inviting and she keeps things fresh. It definitely reflects the casual lifestyle of Southern California, a style I'm partial to.

  11. How stunning! I especially love her color choices. Perfect pops of red. I'm curious about the wood countertop and how she keeps it. Looks so pristine.

  16. Be still my beating heart! I knew when I saw Kathyrn's living room and powder room, that the rest of her home would be nothing short of magical....and it did not disappoint. Thank you Kathryn, for letting us peak into your beautiful home and thank you MaryAnn for another inspiring post. I always know that when I see "classic . casual . home" in my inbox that I'm in for a truly special treat and a great start to my day.
    P.S. Do you suppose Debbie and Claire would share the color they used on Kathryn's walls? It's the perfect neutral for any room.

  28. Kathryn's home is just gorgeous in every way and so warm. I adore the interior and the exterior equally as much. I love her Bevolo outdoor light fixtures...made in America.

  32. This is truly a stunning home. I loved the virtual tour. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I added yo as the source on the post and on pinterest, since the original source was google.

  33. Man...all of your friends have gorgeous homes!!! You could just do post everyday and wow us with these beautiful images!!!

  34. The composition is marvelous. I love that the marble was left off the island countertop. There, the lighting would have been too harsh in the sunlight. The right material in the right place. Lovely and human scale. Bravo.

    Thanks so much for the house tour. What a superb house!!! Light is so underestimated in so many ways and I really love to see it featured in interior design. I would gladly photograph that house any day! Next on my wish list...a skylight ;) xCathy
