Joe Lucas goes the distance for an ocean-side getaway just 15 minutes from his clients’ main home, creating a fuss-free escape for surfing, family togetherness, and chilling by the beach.
Lucas chose bleached-white oak cabinetry for this Hermosa Beach, California, home. “It feels more modern,” he says, “beachy without being too theme-y.” Pendants, the Urban Electric Co. The rope-wrapped counter stools are from Lucas’s Los Angeles shop, Harbinger.
A Titanio Nero travertine-slab fireplace anchors the living room. The chair, in a Holland & Sherry fabric, console, and throw are all from Harbinger. Lamp, Visual Comfort.
For the room’s sofa, Lucas chose a Holland & Sherry outdoor fabric with a “terry cloth-like texture” he deemed perfect for a beach house. A custom armchair (left) is upholstered in a Fret fabric. The chair (right) and bench are from Lucca Home. Mirror, Harbinger. Walls in Portola Paints & Glazes Elizabeth I in Roman Clay finish.
Lucas designed the dining room’s live-edge walnut-and-bronze table; Soane Britain chairs in a Moore & Giles leather; chandelier, Apparatus.
In the master bedroom, the bed from Harbinger is topped with Matouk linens and a Coral & Tusk pillow. Wallcovering, Katie Ridder.
The powder room’s vanity has a custom walnut counter and a Lucca Home mirror; wallpaper, Adrienne Neff.
Beams add architectural interest to the low ceiling of the beach room, which leads to the sand. Mosaic House’s concrete hex tiles on the floor “only get prettier as they age,” Lucas says. Custom sofa in a Romo fabric. Nickey Kehoe chairs in a Zak+Fox print. Coffee table, Lucca Home. Rope tables, Harbinger. Artwork, Alex K. Mason.
A corner of the bunk room, which sleeps seven; the multicolored Mosaic House tiles in the adjoining bathroom, Lucas says, were “the ultimate sea-glass haul.”
A four-poster bed from Room & Board in a daughter’s room has a headboard upholstered in a Kelly Wearstler for Groundworks fabric; lamps, Visual Comfort.
