simple is beautiful

Monday Inspiration | Kelly Nutt Design

Monday, June 8, 2015

A couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon the portfolio of Kelly Nutt, a talented designer in Newport Beach, CA. Her work is traditional yet current with that edited approach that I love.  One of my favorite projects is Seashore Residence which features a timeless oceanfront home with splashes of ocean inspired colors, stripes, and lots of shiplap.

What do I love about this?  The contrasting island, the tongue and groove ceiling, the layered roman shades, and the hardwood floors.

Banquettes are always a good idea.  I really like how the seat cushion and throw pillows are of the blue and white ikat.

The wall mount faucet is a stunner!

Stripe stair runner & shiplap - check!

Can you imagine enjoying your morning coffee to this view?!  The colors within the home are a continuation of the ocean view blending the two harmoniously.

Fuchsia boho pillows, come to mama!

This combination of stripes works beautifully together.  To see the entire portfolio, go here.


  1. I agree - Kelly Nutt has a great portfolio of homes!! If only I had a spare $10+ million in the bank to buy one of these oceanfront homes, HA

  2. I love every space here. Kelly is so talented.

  3. Such soothing design. Minimalist and clean. Thanks for sharing!

  4. These are stunning images. I especially love the kitchen and first bedroom. What's your thought on outside mounted roman shades? I would have never given them a second thought until viewing these images. They seem to make more of a statement (and maybe soften the room), but do you give up the structure of the molding and clean lines?


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love your comments and read each and every one. Your questions will be answered here or you can email me at
