It’s Always Sunny in Carpinteria

There’s an energy vortex between the mountains and the ocean on this stretch of California coast, a place where the earth seems especially alive. The personality of this weekend home reflects that with upbeat orange complementing the green landscape and blue Pacific. We opened up the indoor space of this untraditional beach house and added floor to ceiling sliding glass doors and extended the deck to wrap around, so that breakfast truly is enjoyed outdoors. 

Classic cotton rugs, capiz light fixtures, a teak root mirror, unglazed California pottery and chocolate brown sofas that protect from beach tar give this retreat a relaxed and lived-in vibe.
