Clarkson Residence: Cheerful Modern Beach House in Santa Barbara

There is nothing like a relaxing beach house to escape the rush of mundane city life and enjoy a rejuvenating weekend with friends and family. Overlooking an idyllic stretch of beach and the vast Pacific in the distance, Clarkson Residence is all about a tranquil lifestyle wrapped in modern comfort. Designed by Neumann Mendro Andrulaitis Architects, the beautiful home has a refreshing gray exterior that complements the natural redwood deck outdoors perfectly. The deck and front porch become an integral part of the narrative of the house and extend the living space outdoors in a seamless fashion.

Bright yellow rug adds color and elegance to the clean living room

Large glass doors with metal frames connect the living area, kitchen and dining space with the lavish deck outside while providing unabated views of the distant landscape. The interior combines modern décor with a serene beach style, offering the best of both worlds. While the color scheme of the backdrop is largely white, additions such as the black accent wall in the family room, plush rugs, colorful couches and décor breathe life into the setting. The focus here is on loads of natural light and a breezy ambiance that seems like an extension of the world outside.
