A modern shoot in a traditional beach house was the goal of this Nantucket-style conversion. Courtney Thomas DesignLocated in Laguna Beach, California. The plan was to downsize heavy patterns and large format furniture and play with clean lines and simple, fun fabrics.
From almost every room in this house, including the roof terrace, this residence offers panoramic views of the sea, the coast and the Catalina sunset. Minor structural changes were made to enhance what was already there, but the house's open floor plan and clear separation of private and public spaces were the forces that took advantage of this.

Over: To obtain this compact 5 & # 39; deep 9 & # 39; To make long bathrooms functional, the designer lifted the vanity and folded it.
