Quaintness to the Max

As we make our way down PCH we'll make a stop at the Emerald Bay community in Laguna Beach. Known for its artsy-ness, Laguna has long been a favored vacation getaway. Can you get anymore picturesque than this? A small artists cottage draped in vines and surrounded by blooming white roses is beyond perfection!
This painted floor is seriously the first one I have ever liked, and of course it had to be lime green. I think it adds a totally new dimension to the cottage by making it light and airy from top to bottom. Also notice the steel doors and windows! There are two dueling dinning areas that both vie for attention, one indoors and the other is situated in its own outdoor room.
Stainless steel. White cabinets. White marble countertops. Subway tile. HALLELUJAH.
This house, just steps away from the private community beach, just sold this past January for a cool $4,100,000. It seems beauty has a price and those in the know are willing to pay for it.


  1. Emerald Bay...I have always wondered what the houses look like within this exclusive gated community. Thank you for doing this post! Love this unique home - it takes a lot of confidence to paint your floors green, don't you think? I personally love it, but if you saw my house you would understand...I love green.

  2. The green floors in the kitchen with the subway tile = perfect!
