Beach-Chic Just in Time

Designer Sasha Emerson redesigned this Malibu beach house into a family retreat.

The sofa pairs with a round, ocean-blue tiled coffee table to accommodate big groups. Linen-wrapped poufs make for extra, moveable seating. Wood lamps and a wire-and-linen chandelier cast soft light on the space. Shelves lining the wall hold vintage fishing floats that evoke the sea, audible through wide-flung doors.

Products (June 2010): Madeline Weinrib rugs, ABC Carpet & Home. Coffee table, Plain Air. Pillow fabric (linen place mats), DwellStudio. Poufs, Crate & Barrel. Roost wood lamp, Orange and Pear. Wood lamp, Jonathan Adler. Chandelier and vintage fishing floats, Big Daddy’s Antiques.
