I’m fully entrenched in the California lifestyle and I love it.- Wendy Bellissimo
While browsing Lonny the other day, I came across the coziest California home. It’s white clapboard exterior accented with natural stone is the perfect embodiment of a West coast bungalow. And don’t even get me started on the front door!! The home belongs designer Wendy Bellissimo and her family which includes four young daughters. And although the home’s exterior hints at Wendy’s Connecticut roots, the interior is anything but East coast traditional.
Love that charming exterior!
Designer Wendy Bellissimo.
The interior is a charming mix of California bohemian style and ethnic pieces. Wendy has spent the last twenty years on the West coast and that relaxed aesthetic gives the home a cozy, casual vibe. The addition of rustic pieces like cow hide rugs and leather wing chairs are the perfect foil to all of the bohemian accents.
The house was a new build so Wendy added exposed beams to give it character.
The dining room has an antique Chinese sideboard that Wendy topped with honed Italian marble. So cool!
Many of the pieces throughout the home were custom designed by Wendy’s company.
Wendy’s daughter’s bedroom with custom beds and a moravian star lantern.
The master bedroom is an oasis of calm with a fireplace and mix of textures.
The master bath is airy and perfectly captures the modern yet bohemian vibe of the rest of the home.
I love everything about this eclectic California home!
