I first spotted this adorable Newport Beach cottage in Rue Magazine , and immediately fell in love with its pretty coastal décor . Designed by Mindy Lavin, the dated 1964 old-school layout was transformed to an open and airy updated beach house .
Walls were removed and finishes were modernized to create the perfect home for a young family with three small children. Now the house is opened up from front to back and takes full advantage of the views of the water. Distressed wood floors and a simple gray and white palette are the perfect choices for a home so close to the sea .
