We couldn’t have selected a more synergistic interior design firm for The Isle at Mariner Shores. Blackband Design, based in Newport Beach, has the So Cal coastal aesthic down. Owners Wendy and Greg Blackband have worked and lived in South OC for decades. Wendy grew up on Balboa Island and they still call the quaint little inlet home. What started as a furniture store (as a way to escape corporate life) nearly 20 years ago, has become a thriving interiors business. One of their local claims-to-fame is designing one of the cottages at the Lido House Hotel. We partnered with them to create our Coastal Farmhouse Townhomes as the ultimate beach house experience.
The Blackband design team came up with three unique farmhouse styles to theme each of our model residences. Here we are going to share Residence 1X – The Bohemian. This home features natural/woven materials and textures (kitchen island pendants, strappy bed frame, rattan daybed, outdoor furniture), with a fun mix of sun-kissed colors and patterns (textiles, art, accessories). It’s bright, breezy, care-free and relaxed.
The best nugget of design advice that Wendy Blackband gives is, “Tap into the things that bring you joy. Create spaces that reflect your interests and that work for your unique lifestyle.”
Be on the lookout in the coming weeks as we highlight our other models – Residence 2X and Residence 3X. In the meantime, make an appointment to tour The Isle at Mariner Shores models by visiting our website:
