French Inspired Beach Home

I have seen some of these photographs around but not the house they belong to. I found them all together and think they are well worth showing in a single post. Interior designer Betty Burgess and architect Richard Barrett teamed up to give this Pebble Beach home its French feel. For the overall palette, Burgess chose grey, pairing it with taupe, white and black accents.

Rustic scheme for this part of the kitchen with a tailor made glass front cabinet and limestone flooring.

Flax-linen sofa, wool on 19th-c. stools, ottoman in suede and an antique barometer on wall. Beautiful herringbone floor.

French chairs in suede. Intaglios, 19th c. velvet on bench. Venetian chandelier and French lamps, all antiques.

Leather chairs. Door hides TV above the French mantel. I wonder if the TV isn't harmed by the fire. The flooring is antique limestone.

French 19th century table.

Gilded bronze table. Ultrasuede was used for curtains, upholstered walls, custom bed and bedskirt.

In master bathroom, Carrara bianco statuario marble walls, countertop and floor. Floating cabinet adds a modern touch.

Minimalist modern style — inspired by the Hôtel Le Bristol in Paris.

  1. Ha! I never would have guessed that house was there! I lived in Pebble Beach and so did my mom (separate homes) for about 6 years. Gorgeous home!

    It brings back memories of The Lodge and Spanish Bay during cocktail hour. The bagpiper..... so beautiful :)


  2. On the French 19th century table the fruits are ruined... its time to put som of this century :^P

  3. I'll take that first kitchen and the master bedroom, please. :)
