Tour a Casual California Home Made for Entertaining

This empty-nest couple in Marin County, California, wanted their home to be the spot where everyone wanted to hang out — their college-age kids, their friends and their kids’ friends. To transform the classic cottage into an entertainer’s dream, the couple put together a remodeling team that included designer Jennifer Messina.

Messina, who used Houzz Pro software to manage the project, created welcoming interiors that look impressive without feeling too buttoned-up. Dark wood flooring, high ceilings and lots of windows and folding glass doors seamlessly connect indoors and out and establish a lively atmosphere. The couple’s artwork collection adds pops of color and personality throughout the home. And a spectacular backyard features zones for everything: swimming, lounging, cooking and dining.

It's certainly cheerful to be able to have guests over again, and renovate a house with the intent geared towards entertaining.
May lockdowns never happen again. Long live normal life!
