Creating Vacation Villa Style

Decorating and furnishing your home can seem like a truly overwhelming task. Whether you are moving in to an unfurnished home, or are just in need of a design refresh, there are countless styles to choose from. Southern California Designers are frequently asked to create luxury, hotel-style living spaces on the coast of Orange County, wouldn’t it be nice to come home and be reminded of your fondest vacation memories?

Resort style design captures the essence of coastal California living mixed with the quality of a high-end resort. According to top designers, this trend can be achieved by incorporating beautiful hues, high thread count fabrics, and one of a kind pieces to the design scheme. Here are the essentials you need to know in order to create your dream home.

The entry way is your guests’ first impression of your home; welcome your guests in style. To create a high-end look, hang a conversation starting piece of artwork, or a photo of your favorite vacation retreat. To complete the space, pair the art with a unique console table and a beautiful floral arrangement.

You can almost hear the waves crashing outside your window as you fall asleep in your luxurious resort-style retreat. Most people believe choosing superior linens is all about thread count, which is a large part of the equation, but designers know it is also about the fibers and the weave of the fabrics. For that extra soft feel, choose sheets that use a long fiber, and a percale or sateen weave. Incorporating cool blues into a neutral scheme will create that restful retreat you are looking for. Try layering blue tones found in your feather-down throw pillows and ocean themed wall art.

Luxury linens, fresh flowers, and a polished vanity define resort style. Top Designers upgrade your experience by applying textured wallpaper in neutral hues. This subtle detail provides a statement in the bathroom without taking away from the relaxing atmosphere.

Soak in the view! The California coastline stretches through white sandy beaches, the epic grandeur of soaring sea cliffs, secret caves and sea-life abundant tidepools. To create an indoor-outdoor space that takes inspiration from our magnificent coastline, bring in a textured rug that will provide interest and comfort to the space. Layer that look with outdoor furniture that accentuates the relaxed lifestyle of California. Subtle prints and oversized cushions on outdoor furniture will give that resort feel, without distracting from the scenery.

Living in your resort style dream home is within reach. From a design perspective, find your inspiration from the abundant California sunshine, deep blue ocean and soft sandy shores.
