Hykes Residence is the remodel of a 1970’s tract house turned modern and transitional beach cottage by Anders Lasater Architects, sited in Dana Point, California. The home was re-imagined for simple family living, brimming with light and happiness, California style. The interior design of this stylish yet minimalistically designed cottage was carried out by Exotica Design Group. Skylights and plenty of windows filter natural light throughout the interiors, while white walls helps to bounce light further into the spaces.
The hardwood floors are custom wide-planked wire-brushed French Oak with a custom silvery stain from Gaetano Wood Floors in Huntington Beach, California. The walls are Benjamin Moore ‘Pashmina’ flat, with ‘Swiss Coffee’ satin enamel at Ceiling, Trim and Cabinetry. The ceiling is 1×6 tongue and groove paneling. The back splash is Waterfall ‘Rain Pattern’ from Walker Zanger.

The island counter is honed black Zimbabwe granite. The pendant lights are from Arteriors, the Kilo collection by Stone Lighting.
The lighting in the ceiling houses regular 4″ diameter low voltage halogen cans, non sloping.
The fire pit is custom, poured in place colored concrete with cast glass chips burnished into the top. The flooring surface is colored concrete with blue glass pebbles sprinkled over the top and smoothed in. It’s a challenging process, but looks great! What do you think, did you enjoy this home tour?
