Interior Designer We Love: Pure Salt Interiors

Posted by: Nellie Laskow

One of the things that I enjoy most about my job is working with our wonderful interior design clients. I'm always so excited to see our products in a real home! You can see all our posts in our Interior Designers We Love series here.

We were so excited when Pure Salt Interiors used Dotted Palm wallpaper in their client's home. Hear more from Pure Salt Interiors about this project and see pictures below. Photos by Vanessa Lentine.

"We love working on projects in the quaint neighborhoods of Eastside Costa Mesa as all of the houses have such unique character. We had swooned over this house before we ever got hired to do the design. We were very inspired by the house's architecture when conceiving the design, drawing inspiration from places like the Playa Grande Beach Club in the Dominican Republic designed by Celerie Kemble. The house was already fairly updated before our client's purchased it, creating a nice blank slate for us to add some special touches that would turn their house into a home. We made fairly minimal changes to the front porch, like adding the custom house numbers and modernizing the shutter dogs, but adding the rope to the existing porch swing was one of the more impactful changes that really tied everything together (no pun intended)."

"We had so much fun designing for their twin five-year-old kids. One of our favorite decorative elements we added that really brought this playful design to life was the wallpaper in both kids' rooms and their bathroom."

"Some minor changes we made were updating the flooring, stairs, and railing to brighten up the space and give it more of a coastal feel. Since the rest of the finishes were already updated, we just extended the kitchen island to add more storage and make space to fit their whole family, as well as painted the lower cabinetry, and updated their countertops to a more durable material that was more functional for young children."

"Just past the front entry 'drop zone' there was an open space that is in between the dining nook, and opens up to the front porch, that we weren't sure how to utilize at first, but knew it was a great opportunity to add something special that was functional and maximizes all of the useable space in this cozy bungalow. We landed on a custom dry bar that acted as a statement design element in the home but also adds something that is conducive for entertaining, or just having a glass of wine while sitting out on the porch swing."
