Beach House-Waterleaf Interiors-00-1 Kindesign

Homeowner and interior designer Jill Johnson of Waterleaf Interiors designed this breezy and stylish beach house that is located right by the ocean in Manhattan Beach, California. The two-story family home has a refined yet laid-back style, gracefully capturing the California cool lifestyle that is undeniably wonderful. The shingle clad home has been featured in the current issue of Coastal Living magazine, showcasing its simple holiday decorations and beach style vibe that makes you want to design your own coastal dream house! When its the holiday season, the designer likes to play off her coastal environment and enhance what is already existing. Natural elements of greenery are dotted throughout, beach-inspired ornaments brings in the coastal vibe, while a palette of hues drawn from the sea were used for both the home and holiday decor. Regardless of the season, she pairs creative details with comfortable and livable elements that are kid-friendly. If you happen to visiting in the neighborhood, the designer co-owns a lovely shop in downtown Manhattan Beach that is full of coastal collections for those that love beach style interiors.
