Tucked into a narrow niche, the charming window seat is deep to accommodate two kids or several stuffed friends. The white base and gray cushion are ideal foils for the bright mix of pillows, toys and the cheery yellow shade.
Sinuous lines characterize the interior of this luxurious guest house bathroom. The custom-designed Kraken mosaic features a subtle octopus motif, with the mosaic tile continuing onto the rear shower wall. A glass chandelier dresses up the space.
Keeping the color scheme of this contemporary bathroom simple in black and white enhances the spacious feeling of the small room. The black octopus painted on the wall adds a fun touch while the contemporary sink and toilet give the space a European touch.
At the end of the mudroom, a door opens into the powder room. Because the home is near the water, the designers decked the space with wallpaper that features fish, octopus and other sea creatures. A large white-trimmed mirror and pedestal sink easily stand out against the blue and green.
Pale blue walls serve as the backdrop for this cheery gender-neutral nursery. A chandelier adds sparkle over the crib, which sits below an octopus triptych. A blue armchair provides a cozy seat, while a red trellis-patterned area rug ties in the throw pillow and canvas storage bin.
Below the door handles to Cevicheria, there are fish stamped into the door, while above the handle, birds are flying. This helps to create the beach ambiance that is carried inside the restaurant. However, the stamps in the metal create intrigue for passersby when they glance in and see an octopus suspended from the ceiling, making the doors more than just a pretty decoration.
Farm-to-table food in a lush, garden setting, this Todos Santos restaurant feels like eating in the garden of Eden with the beautiful landscape laid out before you. A wood-grilled oven means you can enjoy sea-meets-sand chocolate clams grilled in butter and green chili or wood-grilled oysters. Pastas and pizzas as well as grilled tacos, grilled octopus and chili relleno campirano play the field between familiar comfort food and local delicacies. There is an on-site shop to pick up some locally-made foodie items. The only downside of a lovely meal and location is a staff that seems slightly mystified by a woman dining alone, a strange reaction considering the cool, international hippie vibe.
