The pond yacht behind the sofa is a fanciful touch in this casual room.

Summer camp has always seemed like the perfect getaway — the sun, the fun, the breeze, the stars at night. Well, some people live like that all the time — at least in Laguna Beach, Calif., they do. Here, camp-style living is a year-round thing and the style Rich and Molly English chose for their home is a vibrant "camps and cottages" look that combines rustic living with whimsical seaside living.

The pond yacht behind the sofa is a fanciful touch in this casual room. Cheery, contrasting colors combine for a dynamic design statement in the small cottage. The Englishes have decorated the walls with their collection of early-California plein air art.
