Tour a Malibu Dream Home

I wish I could steal that mirror and put it over my entryway table.  I love the blend of rustic furniture with lush green plants.

Interior designer Vanessa Alexander's Malibu home is the epitome of California chic.  From the rustic furniture to the clean fabrics, this dream home is comfy and beautiful at once.  What I personally love is that the entire house feels cohesive, yet each room has it's own distinct feel.  Function is key and each piece feels like it is meant to be utilized to its fullest by her family.

From the unfinished wood floors to the rustic drawers and potted white pitcher, this hallway is just beyond!

I can't get over how beautiful her unfinished wood floors look.  I've never quite seen flooring like this.  It's such an original choice and works well with a California casual style.

Rugs on rugs on rugs.  I love how the softness of a wool rug is layered over the texture-rich striped  rug.  The sofa table is so beautiful as well.

The fireplace is too cute.  And while I love the coffee table, I think functionally it wouldn't work in most homes.

I'm a sucker for worn in antique leather chairs and contemporary art.

The formal dining room is perfectly accented with a boucherouite rug and contemporary art.  She has great taste in art.

This family room is meant to lounge around in.  The coffee table is perfectly balanced with decorative accents breaking up the stacked coffee table books.

This is such a cute idea.  Instead of wall mounting a flat screen tv, try resting it on an art easel.

I looooove a bathroom with a dual vanity mirror instead of just one large mirror.  It's so much more stylish.  Add a plant in the corner and it's tre magnifique!

I love a beautiful weathered outdoor furniture set.  This feels like it could appear in a Restoration Hardware ad.
