Step Inside a Striking SoCal Home That Looks Anything but Beachy

When we dream of coastal living, we often picture the ocean views well before we get to thinking about the interiors. But in the case of Blackband Design’s latest project, the stunning views inside the home rival the seaside landscape. Built last year by SC Homes in Orange County’s Corona del Mar, the home’s modern architecture and warm contemporary style stretch across 8300 square feet with six bedrooms and eight bathrooms. Blackband Design’s renowned talent for coastal-chic interiors was a perfect match for the project, bringing a layered approach to the home that blended bright, airy, and clean finishes with more saturated tones and, of course, lots of texture.

The home called for dramatic, architectural pieces to create wow moments throughout, so designer Wendy Blackband and team designed countless custom furnishings for the different spaces to give each room its own point of view. In the end, this one-of-a-kind appeal proved to be Blackband’s favorite part of the final design. “I love how each space is very special and has its own unique style while still maintaining an overall cohesive vibe,” she remarks.

Oh, and did we mention that the home is for sale? Even if you’re not ready for the $13 million price tag (a girl can dream…), there’s endless inspiration in the design details. Below, take a tour of this striking SoCal home.
