Traditional Cabana with Kitchen, Entertainment Space
While the design of this traditional cabana ties into the existing house, certain details lend it a more casual style. Columns that match the home's architecture give structure to the front of the cabana while contributing to its open feel. Meanwhile, lattice-work joining the columns is reminiscent of beach house design, as is the vaulted ceiling finished with white beadboard and exposed beams.
Modern Living Room Incorporates the Outdoors in Its Design
The modern living room of this guest house is reminiscent of a beach locale, with its relaxed furnishings, rugged tables and natural fiber rugs. To incorporate the modern, industrial design of the space, metal light fixtures were added to maintain the integrity of the design while helping to light the room. A sliding barn door cleverly conceals the entertainment center when it's not in use, and a Nano door opens poolside to open onto the patio where polished concrete floors continue out into the pool area help to make the seamless transition from indoor to outdoor.
Crisp white walls, sleek white sofas and a clean-lined coffee table create a contemporary look in this pool house. A sisal rug and aqua surfboard add coastal flair, giving the space some sea-inspired personality.

A Courtyard Terrace With Pillared Archways Overlooks A Garden Swimming Pool
The courtyard terrace of this Point Lorna, California, villa home features neutral furnishings that complement the simplicity of the architecture that encompasses them.

Small Galley Kitchen Opens Onto Outdoor Sitting Area
A small galley kitchen that is often used for a wet bar during the family's frequent pool parties leads from the interior of the pool house to the cozy sitting area that lies between the pool and the pool house. The concrete floors tie the space together, helping the transition from indoor to outdoor become a seamless one.
