Going Coastal....with Style
Do you dream of sunny days spent playing in the ocean waves; the sand gently buffing your feet into a perfect silky-smooth texture; being kissed by the sun as you snooze while a gentle breeze tosses your hair? Or, perhaps the waves call you to windsurf, jet ski, snorkel, surf, or take a boat ride during the day, while the evening entices you with a bonfire, complete with guitar melodies and a marshmallow roast, after a wonderful bowl of seafood jambalaya with family and friends? Whatever your idea of the perfect summer beach day, this home will conjure those memories, cocooning you in coziness as it embodies the nostalgic warmth of glorious beach days.
Homeowners, Ron and Barbara Burgess, who enjoy entertaining family and friends, longed to update the look of their living and adjoining family room, thus they enlisted the help of interior designer, Rejoy Marsella. Taking her cue from the ocean, Rejoy masterfully designed the interior of this Laguna Niguel, California home to reflect the beauty of the nearby sea. Inspired by the vibrant soothing colors of the water, Rejoy’s design talents made both rooms POP! Utilizing the soothing colors of the sand, vibrant shades of the ocean in a cascade of blues, and a variety of greens from the coastal lands, Rejoy brought the outdoors in for all to enjoy. Her ingenuity was displayed in the various shells and corals, used in surprisingly fresh new ways, giving homage to their natural home. Moreover, weathered wooden pieces finished the ocean theme reminiscent of driftwood found washed ashore.
Awed by the new look, the homeowners persuaded Rejoy to add finishing touches to other areas of the home. The dining room table invites guests to gather around, with its stunning blue plates atop seagrass placemats. Additionally, the master bedroom boasts a deep-sea blue accent wall brightened by the reflections of multiple mirrors, perfectly placed beside a relaxing ocean print scene, and the dark wood furniture anchors the room against its sandy colored carpeting. Truly a room to relax, unwind, and rest in. And, with Rejoy’s artistry... it is an absolutely epically designed home with the comforts of today’s modern beach living.
