The double turquoise wood doors of this beach house open to a to allow cooling breezes and a spectacular view. There's a lime tree on the porch, saltillo tile on the floor, a wicker armchair in the living room and an ocean off the deck. Perfection.
This kitchen by designer Mark Dutka in his own home near the Northern California coast was designed to reflect the colors of the local sky, sand and forests. A gorgeous sky blue accent wall gives depth to this small, open-plan modern kitchen. Wood beam ceilings and saltillo tile floors offer a nature-inspired contrast to the metal and gray. Halogen pendant lights suspended from an overhead support above the counter peninsula offer a creative lighting solution.
Color is key to creating a lively Spanish-inspired outdoor dining area. The yellow pergola, Talavera tile behind the grill, Saltillo patio tile and cobalt-blue seat cushions all work to enliven this festive alfresco space.
