A Manhattan Beach Urban Chic 10 photos
A house build in the 90's with a Mediterranean look underwent a complete transformation into a casual but sophisticated home. With lighter walls and wood floors, an open kitchen with a quartz top and a turquoise island and new fireplace surrounds this house is now full of light and flair.
