This idyllic beachfront home had the help of a talented team such as the architects Howard Backen of Backen & Gillam, interior designers Kathleen and Tommy Clements of Clements Design, and landscape architect Mark Rios of RCH Studios. With the goal of establishing a glamorous concept, you can see through Barry’s office, an incredible seating area that features a Bouclé-covered sofa, bamboo chairs, and a cocktail table by Jimi Zivic Design from Ralph Pucci.

There’s an amazing and richly landscaped courtyard, into the house’s massive social space, and from there out to the breathtaking embrace of the terrace and ocean view. On a terrace overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the sofa and Meridiani lounge beds and armchair are covered in a Perennials fabric.
