Family Room by the Ocean

A living area gets a warm and inviting makeover to highlight its ocean view.

  • Kaci and John Bathurst and their son, Kai, moved into their three-story oceanside home a little over a year ago. Although their house has a picture-perfect view of the Pacific Ocean, the couple believes they need to focus on the interior now. Their main concern is the family room that needs to mirror their lifestyle, while leaving the beach at the beach.
  • After meeting with all the designers, the Bathursts choose the expertise of DeWayne Porter. Keeping their love of clean lines and their casual lifestyle in mind, Porter is given the task of creating a sophisticated refuge for this beach-loving family.
  • How do you streamline a family room so it won't cramp a couple's laid-back lifestyle or interfere with their fabulous ocean view? Those are the challenges the designer will try to answer.
  • Was the result worth the wait and the $30,000 price tag? Happily, Porter created a warm and intimate family room that's as inviting as its panoramic ocean views.
