As part of a major redesign of their Manhattan Beach home, our clients wanted to tastefully furnish their newly renovated family room and dining nook. The house, which hadn’t been updated in decades, was dated with old carpet and chipped paint, and long overdue for a makeover. Our signature coastal color palette of blues and neutrals, showcased in a feature magazine spread, inspired them to reach out.
Seeing as this was a budget-conscious project, we remained loyal to the existing footprint while we worked to reimagine the existing finishes. We rejuvenated the brick fireplace in the family room through a few simple but prominent changes: the brick overmantel was removed, fresh paint was applied, and a new wood mantle was accompanied by blue built-in cabinets on either side. A TV, newly mounted directly over the fireplace and between the cabinets, accentuates the family room’s new sense of symmetry.
The custom-designed cabinets and carefully curated furnishings in both rooms foster a sense of openness throughout the home. The wraparound maintenance-friendly porcelain countertop in the kitchen provides a modest touch of grandeur, while the shelves above the sink give our clients a chance to showcase their decorative aesthetic. With new life breathed into it, this home will be a fun and homey sanctuary for years to come.

“We moved into a house built by White Sands and love the choices that were made and quality of construction. Brett and his crew have been great in continuing our journey to understand, as well as amend, interior elements. Hawlie designed the interior, revamping from a Hollywood vibe to a contemporary coastal style.
We are really pleased with them on every front. Brett is wonderful at responding in a timely manner with quality solutions. He is straightforward in setting expectations and doesn’t finish any project until you, his client, are happy and satisfied.”
“The folks at White Sands did a great job for us. We’ve built three homes and this was by far our best experience. We were relaxed during construction because we believed they were looking out for us, and they did. The outcome was terrific. Just what we hoped for. These are a talented group of professionals.”
“The entire company is a pleasure to work with, extremely professional, follow through is A1. Their design team is approachable and listens to the needs of their clients. Great company to work with.”
“Great people to work with, all promises kept and delivered on time.”
