Charming Coastal Home With Porthole Windows

Even at a distance, this single family home near Costa Mesa, Calif., is as pretty as a postcard, with a fresh white exterior and porthole windows. Inside, shiplap walls, neutral furniture and splashes of blue and green continue the coastal theme, while light wood floors evoke thoughts of driftwood -- and easily stand up to sandy toes!
