La Jolla Beach Cottage Beach Style Bedroom, San Francisco

This adorable beach cottage is in the heart of the village of La Jolla in San Diego. The goals were to brighten up the space and be the perfect beach get-away for the client whose permanent residence is in Arizona. Some of the ways we achieved the goals was to place an extra high custom board and batten in the great room and by refinishing the kitchen cabinets (which were in excellent shape) white. We created interest through extreme proportions and contrast. Though there are a lot of white elements, they are all offset by a smaller portion of very dark elements. We also played with texture and pattern through wallpaper, natural reclaimed wood elements and rugs. This was all kept in balance by using a simplified color palate minimal layering.

I am so grateful for this client as they were extremely trusting and open to ideas. To see what the space looked like before the remodel you can go to the gallery page of the website

6. Secure some sconces. Wall sconces are huge space-savers in bedrooms that don’t have room for two nightstands and table lamps. In bedrooms that do, they free up more space on the bedside table for books, reading glasses and drinks. Look for a type that has a rotating neck or extendable arms, as shown here. That way you can maneuver the sconce into perfect position. Make sure the arm is long enough to clear headboard obstacles, like the side wing on this headboard. Fabric shades diffuse light more evenly than metal ones.

3. Introducing a flamingo motif via a pillow, painting or wallpaper is a fantastic way to glamorize your black-and-white decor with a little Palm Beach style. It also makes for a more mature take on the old hot-pink-and-black teen dream.

3. Cool with blue. Natural light is cool compared with yellow-toned incandescent bulbs, so adding blue gives a pleasing crispness that reminds us of the sky. Plus, cool blue is neutral enough to work with nearly any accent color you want to toss in.
