Making It Their Own

From dark and drab to bright and fab


Published:

When Russ and Linda “Mac” Perlich bought this house, the style was Spanish, and the overall mood was dark. “It almost felt like a tomb,” says designer Rebecca Collopy of We-R-Home in Solana Beach. “It didn’t match their personalities.” With the help of John O’Brien from Flagg Coastal Homes in Coronado, they removed heavy wood beams along the arched entryway, traded the original Saltillo tile for a multicolored wood, and re-stained the trim in a distressed gray finish. After a complete renovation, the space is as light and airy as a cream puff. Hallelujah!
