The design of this rustic French Mediterranean style beachfront house in Crystal Cove, Newport Beach, California is inspired by the architecture of Provence.
The elegant stone villa with rustic simplicity was designed by Richard Krantz Architecture and built by Corbin Reeves Construction. The interior design by Ohara Davies-Gaetano is a blend of contemporary and antique French country.
The front door is an 18th-century door from the South of France. The rustic country theme continues in the beachside dining space with stone walls and bleached Douglas fir ceiling. A blue-and-white sofa features the water and sky color theme in this indoor-outdoor setting.
A white curved staircase that looks like the swirl that tops an ice cream cone brings a contemporary touch to the main level.
