When I spotted this newly remodeled home in Manhattan Beach, California, on Pinterest, I knew I had to see the rest of it. It’s decorated with shades of blue in almost every room, but I especially loved the show-stopping turquoise tile in the kitchen. Let’s take the tour!
A Pretty Blue House in Manhattan Beach
Builder Boy is the full-service general contracting service in California that gave this house a new look. They say: “This complete face lift consisted of exterior paint, new windows, custom concrete driveway, porch, and paver patio.”
The staircase has shiplap walls and slate risers:
A girl’s room with aqua walls and a balcony:
Looks like they used Sherwin Williams’ Sea Salt paint (or something similar!) in the boy’s room:
The Master Bedroom may be the only room in the house that takes a break from the blue:
They designed a simple but eye-catching staircase railing for the house:
The family room is bright and airy with the high ceilings and doors that open for indoor-outdoor living:
They wanted the rooms to have a “relaxed coastal vibe.”
The house was decorated by Builder Boy designers Michele Leach and Nathalie Aguirre.
The kitchen has a dining nook with built-in bench seating inside a big bay window:
This turquoise tile is what initially grabbed my attention on Pinterest:
The tile is called “Tozen,” and it’s perfect for a beach house like this.
You can find the tile at Lunada Bay Design.
They matched the wall and ceiling paint to the exact white of the countertops “for a clean, cohesive look.”
The island has a sink and trash compactor “to make cleanup easier.”
If you look closely, you’ll see there’s a window behind the glass-front cabinet to let more light in:
The Dining Room opens to the covered courtyard patio:
The covered courtyard patio:
They matched the exterior paint color to the blue tones in the stone.
The frame around the Powder Room mirror matches the tile in the kitchen:
A small sunroom:
The back patio features a jacuzzi, grilling station and fire pit:
They worked with Jennifer Allison Design on the exterior spaces.
This was designed as a “getaway beach house” for the (lucky) homeowners. Visit the Builder Boy website, their page on Houzz, and an article on House of Turquoise to see more of it, including the finished basement! 🙂
