“Our clients were relocating from New York to Corona Del Mar and wanted to reflect the best of both coasts in their home,” Robin Strickler of DesignWorks says. “We had great discussions with them on how best to accomplish this and found the perfect balance in a design that melded mid-century modern architectural lines with finishes and furnishings that pay homage – with a light hand – to the home’s seaside location.”

Corona del Mar, which is  just south of Newport Beach and north of Laguna Beach, is a charming village community with plenty of restaurants and boutiques. This home is located in Cameo Shores — “Perhaps the most sought-after residential enclave within Corona Del Mar,” Robin explains — and many homes have great ocean views. This home is no exception! 

The interior designer collaborated with architect Gene Kiyotoki along with builder Luke Showalter of Showalter Construction to create an appealing, open feel throughout the home. Robin tells us, “As a result, the overall ambiance is casually elegant, very livable, and accentuates the stunning ocean views.”

In the slideshow, Robin offers insight on the home’s design. Of the space, she says “It’s hard to pick a favorite finish among the beautiful materials we used in this home!” She continues, “We’ll say that our favorite elements are just that – elements! We love the natural light that we were able to bring into the home and also love the water views. The light and the view orientation toward the ocean make the home feel happy, open, and inviting.” Take a tour below!
