We added bold accents to this white boho bungalow with lime-green tiles, unique accessories, and Jet Black counters. The moveable island is a great addition to the space and doubles as a dining table.

Here’s a look at one of our favorite projects, Spyglass Hill in Newport Beach, CA.

Modern Kitchen Design Inspiration

Our client lives in the laid back beach community of Newport Beach, CA. When we met with her to discuss her vision – a sophisticated, modern style – we were thrilled to have the opportunity to bring it to life. We wanted to create the perfect place to host “girls night in” yet ensure durability so her two rambunctious boys could feel at home, whether doing homework or playing inside.

Design Elements:

Arteriors caviar adjustable medium cluster breakfast nook

When designing the breakfast nook, originally, we bought a table with a glass top to fit in this space – but it didn’t make much sense for our client. Like we said, she has two very fun (but rowdy) boys and wanted to opt for something a little more safe, to prevent the possibility of breaking anything. Also, the glass top would show fingerprints and smudges – not pretty. So, we encouraged her: don’t compromise…MODIFISE! (New term, do you like it?)

We modified the table using a honed black granite slab from Arizona Tile and paired it with brass table legs from CB2. The result? A one-of-a-kind, custom nook top that their family will love for years to come. To tie the whole look together,  we added black and gold pillows from Lee Jofa, Kelly Worsler Groundworks and unique cluster lighting from Arteriors.

Mixed Metals Modern Dining Room

Our client kept a few original design pieces such as the wood table, chairs and abstract art piece. We added a bit of luxury with this chandelier from Restoration Hardware Modern, to bring out the brass accents even more.

Bright and Beautiful Custom Wine Bar

Wine Bar Newport Beach

Just past the expansive entry door, we created a custom wine bar with a luxurious look that definitely does not disappoint. With a temperature controlled wine wall, waterfall edge bar, and funky lighting, even Carrie Bradshaw and her girl gang would feel right at home.

Design Elements:
  • Wine bar – Caeserstone waterfall edge, 3 ” square mitered edge detail, walnut veneer
  • Lighting – Tom Dixon: The Beat Family. Specifically the Beat Fat Pendant, Beat Tall Pendant, and Beat Wide, in white.
  • Stone behind the wine rack – Neolith, Calacatta Gold
