I love it when I find amazing inspiration in my own backyard. I stumbled upon the beautiful designs of Eric Olsen while doing research for a project. All of his designs are gorgeous, but a home he designed in the Eastbluff neighborhood of Newport Beach really caught my eye. Today, I want to share with you this inspiring dream home which is a great example of modern rustic style.

The entry of this home immediately introduces the homes modern/ rustic design with a framed wall of reclaimed wood. I love the way the abstract art contrasts with the warmth of the wood.
The kitchen of this home has so many cool details that blend to make a unique space. I love the rustic beamed ceilings in the middle of crisp white walls. The woven pendants above the island add great texture. The details in this space really stand out. Like the modern island with x-shaped, smooth light wood that exposes white cabinetry. It’s such a beautifully thought out kitchen.
You can see coastal influences throughout this home. The linen slipcovered chairs in the dining area invite a relax, casual vibe.
There is beautiful continuity between the kitchen and great room area of this home. Subtle differences like white shiplaped walls and beamed ceilings define the space, but hints of warmth from the fireplace mantle and doorway tie the spaces together. I like the large, facing linen sofas and wicker chairs that create ample seating to entertain.
One of the coolest features is the the indoor/outdoor flow. It’s created with disappearing doors that lead to a manicured backyard with pops of fun color.
This bedroom has such a relaxed, comfortable feel. The layered linens and textiles create a cozy feel in the otherwise modern space. It’s a perfect spot to rest and unwind.
The bathrooms maybe some of my favorite spaces in this home. I love the mix of light wood, clean slate tile and textured look from marble tiles. It’s modern without feeling stark or cold.
The powder room has unique personality with glass industrial pendants and geometric wallpaper. It’s the perfect space to have a little fun with design.
I hope you have enjoyed viewing this beautiful home designed by Eric Olsen. To see more of his work you can view all his projects here. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
