A new Master Suite for a historical home.


This French style home on the coast of California gets a refreshing secondary Master Suite. Experienced designer, Rebecca Lincoln, took a tired bedroom, closet, very pink bathroom and created a beautifully designed and built space. Utilizing elements of air purifying natural clay plaster coating the walls and ceilings, a mixture of french limestone, metals, woods, antique light fixtures & hardware, custom designed & built cabinets, and warm inviting tones Coastal Dwelling gave this master suite a truly historic French touch. To finish the project with a true French feel, an antique  door imported from France was set on barn sliding iron hardware.


A stylish & cozy Coronado beach house gets a signature look.


Coastal Dwelling designed & managed the build of this Beach House. With a youthful and fun take on a true beach design, we took an existing 1970's home and created a beachy & vibrant home for this family of sailors & surfers. With a complete remodel needed, this home went from pink carpets to an open, true beach house. Coastal Dwelling personally worked with the homeowners throughout the design process, selecting all finishes, materials, tile, furniture, and customizing every cabinet and element of their home. The landscaping & hardscaping was also designed by Coastal Dwelling and built for the coastal environment of southern California.
