As we get further into winter, I find myself dreaming about the beach. All I really want to do this week is book a flight to California and enjoy a Pina Colada in the sunshine! Right now I need a healthy dose of summer. This is the perfect time to feature a seashore residence designed by Kelly Nutt. I contacted Kelly last week and she was nice enough to allow me to share this project with you! Kelly is known for her soft and sophisticated designs. She mixes modern materials with playful fabrics to create her signature relaxed style. After working for Ralph Lauren and Barclay Butera, Kelly changed directions to pursued a career in interior design. She started her own company in 2007, where she and assistant designer, Leah Bersuch create beautiful homes for their clients. If I owned a house on the ocean, Kelly would be the first designer I would call. The wrap around windows, light wood flooring and beachy accents make this Newport Beach home a sight to behold.

Horizontal white panels on the walls and ceiling add a cape cod feeling to this otherwise modern home.

Here, pink pillows in a fun textile pattern add a pop of color.

I love the softness of this bedroom. The nailhead detail on the bed is gorgeous.

Outside, the view is unobstructed with the installation of a glass railing.

   Look at that outdoor fireplace! Kelly has done an outstanding job of bringing the comforts of an indoor livingroom to this outdoor patio. Can you think of anything more picturesque than this? The owners are so lucky to call this little piece of heaven their own! I follow Kelly on Instagram and I’m always delighted to see her beautiful posts. Looking for more of her delicious designs? Check out her full Portfolio here. Writing this post gave me an infusion of happiness! I hope it helped alleviate some of your winter blues.

Happy Thursday!
