Dreamhouse - Carmel, Ca. - Decorate a Dreamhouse

In my current Something Beautiful Journal entry, "Decorating A Dreamhouse," I'm imagining that I'm living in this Carmel Highlands, California house built in 1918 of native stone in Arts and Crafts style. Much of the furniture shown is from my Something Beautiful Shoppe or if not can be obtained through special order. Here is the URL for the Carmel Dreamhouse:

Dreamhouse - Carmel, Ca. - Decorate a Dreamhouse

The D. L. James House, as it is named, is a monument unique in the United States. This house is what I chose for my Decorate A Dreamhouse Carmel, CA #d_l_james_house_carmel_ca, #decorate_dreamhouse_carmel_ca

The stone structure seems to have grown out of its site atop the rocky cliffs. It is difficult at some places to " . . . ascertain just where nature's rock has ended and man's masonry genius has begun,"

My Carmel House sits atop the Pacific Ocean #carmel_ca_james_house_, #decorate_dreamhouse_carmel_ca

Carmel House front wall and gate - come on in! #carmel_ca_james_house, #decorate_dreamhouse_carmel_ca

The entryway is really just a niche but I wanted to still give it some prominence. The casualness of the Maison Chest combined with the antique-looking, albeit reproduction, elegant Vintage French Mirror are 'simplement beau,' (French transl., simply beautiful.) The Windsor Candelabra is just simpatico! #motif_maison_chest

he simple design of this sofa and coffee table is perfect in my earthen Carmel house set in the pine forest, above spectacular beaches. If you could see it up close, the Boho Cocktail Table, with its oversize, industrial style casters, is very simply elegant. #boho_cocktail_table,

To cultivate a comfort spot such as this one requires requires exceptional seating.Sometimes the chair or seating is made complete by its accessory piece, aka, the pillow. The Beaded Scallop Pillow from Anthropologie is shaped in that perfect delicious, kidney size. Rest your kidneys, rest your legs or rest your head - that's the purpose of this unique shape. It's ideal-sized and the pattern and design brightens up the sitting area. #sitting_area, #kidney_pillow

the "Circle Circle Bio Bowl," by Vaughan Nelson, that finds itself in visitors' hands. It calls to you 'hold me, touch me." #circle_circle_bio_bowl_vaughan_nelson, #vaughan_nelson_art

The dining room artwork are all one of a kind, original oil paintings by one of my favorite artists, Mary Hatch. From top to bottom they are "Shadows," "The Woods," and "The Cowboy And The Maiden." Hatch's work has been shown in over 30 one-person exhibits in as many years and is included in more than 300 public and private collections throughout the U.S. and Canada.#mary_hatch_art, #mary_hatch_cowboy_maiden

The Carmel house isn't large enough for the the luxury of a wine cellar, the unique Wall Wine Storage is therefor a practical piece.Wall wine storage - it's beautiful and convenient. #wine_rack, #wine_storage,

"Angels," by Brian Kershisnik, a lovely piece, is the sole artwork in the master bedroom. #angels_brian_kershisnik, #decorate_dreamhouse_carmel_ca,

Grand Tour Floor Mirror, 72" x 90" High - Okay, I don't know how, but somewhere I fell in love with full length, floor mirrors. They had me. This one is special because it is so quietly marvelous. (antique white)

The outside views from this room are so utterly amazing I endeavored to keep its decor subtle. On either side of the bed is an Alexandria Chest topped with the Boule Table Lamp. I chose this tall Celine Bed and bedding with those same thoughts, what is necessary but what is gracious.#decorate_dreamhouse_carmel,

Amazing and so unexpected (sole view is from master bedroom) hidden among the brilliance of Carmel, deep within the redwoods of surrounding Big Sur and of course, the Pacific Ocean, we have delicately carved and etched this grandiose garden and pond. Its very seclusion is magnificent. somethingbeautifu...
