Overlooking the shimmering waters of the Pacific, the beach houses of California are as spectacular as the coastal paradise they adorn. Their allure is one of relaxed glamour, their possession an American dream. California Beach Houses leads readers on a private tour of over 25 of the state's most fashionable homes. Enter a nautical-themed cabin perched in the coastal hills of Mendocino, a sprawling mansion on the beach of Malibu, or the chic, renovated motor home of a Los Angeles designer in Venice Beach. With over 200 lavish, full-color images by Architectural Digest photographer Mark Darley, an informative text by Pilar Viladas, and a foreword by Interior Design editor Stanley Abercrombie, this lovely volume captures the dreamy elegance of some of California's most stylish interiors.
