Modern Casual

California designer Tim Clarke outfitted this beach house with a fresh, laid-back look.

A sleek, 36-inch capiz shell orb creates a focal point in the airy dining room and casts warm, inviting light over the table—and identifies the house to passersby on the beach. “I always imagine my clients inviting friends over by telling them their house is the one with the giant glowing globe,” says Tim. “Every house needs an icon.”
