This is a very fun Top Ten list as I could have picked these were your top ten favorite rooms on my blog in 2023. I love that so many are new!
This year all of the rooms are in two locations: Ventura and South Pasadena. Of course, most are at the beach house!
I love the rooms that are my Top Ten for 2022.
Two-thirds are at the beach house which isn’t much of a surprise. It’s all so new!
Here are my Top Ten rooms from 2022!
The Beach House Kitchen
It makes me so happy that you all love our Ventura kitchen as much as I do. I get asked all the time about everything in the kitchen, from the island to the bar stools to the tile.
My favorite part of the kitchen is the beverage area on the right side of the kitchen with the water dispenser, ice machine, and hand-painted tile. Click the links below for a tour!

The Beach House Living Room
It took longer than we expected but we finished the beach house this past spring. It has been an incredible journey renovating the beach house and I can’t even begin to tell you how much we love it. Click the posts below to see the progress we made this year and the finished living area.
The Family Room in South Pas
Our family room is where we spend the majority of our time in South Pasadena. It’s located right off the kitchen and this is such a fun room to gather! Every season ?i change the decor accents and it almost feels like a new room!
The Farmhouse Kitchen in South Pas
The kitchen is undoubtedly the room where I spend a lot of time. We renovated it over twenty-one years ago and I still love it as much as the first time I walked into the finished project. It is also the most commented-on room in our home!
The Beach House Bunk Room
The Bunk room in the beach house will be a well-used room in our beach house in a few years. As our family grows, we expect to see a lot of grandkids sleep in this room. We still have to get a ladder and railing made for the top bunk so a guest can sleep here!
The Beach House Third Floor Deck
The new deck at our beach house is the best room ever! The view is spectacular and we love spending time up there with our family and friends.
The Wine Cellar in Ventura
We didn’t originally plan to have a large wine cellar at the beach but one day Dave and I were walking during construction and I had a revelation. What if we widened the hallway and added a wine cellar downstairs? The rest is history.
The Backyard Putting Green in Ventura
Before the remodel, we never used our backyard. It was small and just never had a purpose. Dave decided he wanted to add a putting green so we could be sure to use the backyard once and for all.
It might seem odd to consider our backyard a room, but with the amount of entertaining that we do outside, it definitely qualifies. This is one of my favorite places to entertain!
The Living Room in South Pas
This year I added some additional seating to our living room and it has made a huge difference. We now spend time in our living room almost every day. What a change!
