Wood Windows Warm up a West Coast Beach House
Julie Laughton always starts with a good plan when working with her clients. In fact, she listens to their wants and needs and creates a free-hand sketch of their dream home before they even get started on the design of the project.
Beach House Style
This client was looking for a quintessential beach house, in Newport Beach, California that also had clean lines. Her design firm was selected because of their extensive experience in building iconic beach houses and their dedication to choosing high-end products that are on stylish, functional and easy to maintain.
Vintage Design Elements
The goal was to create an East Coast Cape Cod style home with a vintage California Beach feeling. Grey tone distressed oak floors, and soap stone counters achieved the desired look. They even designed authentic 1930’s vintage bathrooms.
Wood Windows and Patio Doors
Milgard® Essence Series® wood replacement windows and patio doors were chosen because the client wanted a warm traditional wood feel inside and the luxury of low maintenance with a fiberglass exterior. “I liked the fact that Milgard was local,” said Julie Laughton. “Plus, they provide a Full Lifetime Warranty and service before and after we install.”
A Stylish Classic
Julie enjoyed transforming a tired old home into a timeless, stylish classic. For those who are considering remodeling their home, Julie’s advice is to start with a good plan and choose a contractor/designer who has the proof, experience and truly understands both your functional and style requirements.
