KAS Architect and Rita Chan Interiors collaborated to reimagine a laid-back beach house nestled in the Faria Beach Colony of Ventura County, California. Upon entering this welcoming abode, one discovers interiors brimming with a delightful ambiance. Crafted to reflect the owner’s personal taste and style, this residence effortlessly transitions from sandy toes on the Pacific shores to cozy evenings witnessing breathtaking sunsets in the living room.

By artfully combining vintage and found elements, the spaces seamlessly blend old-world textures with modern-day comforts. A noteworthy design feature of this home is the driftwood stair railing, each piece was collected by the owner.

Having rented in the same community for several years, we knew them personally which made our home purchase special. Mr. Archer was a master hobbyist in his retirement and hand carved this Whale Watching sign we kept in their memory.” — as stated by the homeowner @livingbonitastyle
