The name says it all, Bayshores Drive. It brings to mind images of taking it easy by Bayshores Drive in California, especially in Orange County by the beach. Bayshores can relate to many details of the home, including furniture style that is characterized by chic materials like brass, rattan, and colors like rosette. It is an outdoors feeling, a feeling of openness to the environment, especially during the spring and summer months. Of course, in Southern California, for most of the year the weather is sunny and beautiful.

The lighting of the house, and its enclosure by fences and landscape make a powerful statement. The concern for the environment is evident in the beautiful desert landscaping that is characterized by low water use in a drought-prone environment. The bright white look with dark trim make the house stand out from its neighbors. Likewise, the full two-level porch and three peaked roofs have a candy cutter look and appeal.
This is reflected in all the details of the home, from the front, to the backyard to little details in the bathroom. Think of a great bathroom. It’s the details that make it special and the careful combination of styles. Those antique handles on the bathroom sink are what get the oohs and exclamations from people who visit your house. The use of wood and brass call to mind the elements of the outdoors and the basic parts of the earth and environment. Likewise, the detail of the stars in the tile floor is impressive.
High quality traditional bathroom faucets make a difference. The brass/zinc alloy is a wonderful material. You feel yourself going back in time, and think of carefully made items. This sets the mood for the entire bathroom. There is a beautiful back-and-forth between the wood shelving below the sink and the faucets above the sink, and all of this is intensified by the use of mirrors.
To accent the interesting in furniture, it is necessary to bring in the exotic. That is why you should consider a Tooled Leather Wood Stool, with a Peruvian design. Something about the wood used and the inlaid carving and decoration is perfect for adding that attention getting detail to your living room or bedroom. This is important to make your home special. A mixture of styles is all right as long as you get the attention getting details that you seek. Wood can be very special when it is ornate. The traditional style is extremely powerful in grabbing attention also to the stretched out seating, and the low eye levels allows everyone to look at it.
Let us look at the setting of the entire house, including the backyard. Think of the outdoor chairs and rattan tables outside creating the perfect space for an evening party. The glow of the brass lamps create the lighting that is soft and alluring.
This gives you great ideas on how to organize your home and create the atmosphere that you desire.
