Modern beach style reinvented in a Manhattan Beach house

Manhattan Beach House-DISC Interiors-01-1 Kindesign

This clean lined, modern beach house is a re-interpretation of beach style design, carried out by local studio DISC Interiors, situated in Manhattan Beach, California. This fabulously designed property was used as Sunset Magazine’s idea house for 2014. The finishing result of this striking home infuses tonal hues of the coast with the energetic art scene of Los Angeles. The design hinges on the idea of inspiring homeowners to update their homes no matter how far from the beach you live. The interior scheme was more about layering textures, mixing shiny things with items that are matte. With the stark architecture running throughout, the designers brought in warm textures to add comfort and style. Neutrals and soft gray window treatments were selected to dress the windows, colors a homeowner will not grow tired of.

The dining and living room spaces were switched. The living area is now a smaller, more intimate space, perfect for conversation. This space, as with the majority of spaces throughout the interiors is painted in Behr’s Ultra Pure White. The designer’s selected white because even though most people consider it to be uninteresting, it is much simpler to layer on top of.

The communal style dining table was inspired by downtown Los Angeles restaurants. The room features high ceilings, so the designer’s balanced the space with a lower table and stools. The vision of this space was to be a casual area to enjoy everything from entertaining guests to working late.

The double height entry creates drama and plenty of wall space for art. The designers filled the space with a ceramic wall hanging and designed the staircase with sheets of glass instead of standard balusters. The glass blends into the background, making the space more about the artwork. The wall hanging in the stairwell is a unique piece designed by artist Heather Levine.

This home office showcases a very inspiring idea, where the designer’s pulled the beach into the interiors by uploading an image to a website that prints photographic wallpaper. They also increased the exposure of the image, making the sky white so it would meld into the ceiling. The photograph used in the wallpaper is by photographer Laure Joliet.
