    Default Nautical meets Japanese at a beach house in Laguna



    ( Christina House ) Andy Wolf ticks off his ingredients for the ultimate beach house -- a list that includes sunshine in every room, a casual place for dinner with friends and an outdoor shower, above. An attorney by profession and former president of the Pacific Design Center, Wolf got his chance to put latent design skills to work by remodeling a duplex at Victoria Beach in Laguna for himself and Carol Mendelsohn. "The area was beautiful but the house was an eyesore," says Mendelsohn, the show runner of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and executive producer of "CSI: NY" and "CSI: Miami." "It looked like a bad dorm with dirty linoleum floors and shag carpets and closets with those plastic accordion doors. But it had good energy."

    Hate the fish bathroom but the rest is nice.

    Yeah, the fish wallpaper would have to bid everyone sayonara, but I love it. It's not the biggest guy on the beach, but it has lots of character.

    My first thought was also "fishes gotta go". Love everything else.

    I've got the feeling this was taken from an Ikea catalogue, I don't know why.
    There's something I don't like about the whole place, though it's really nice, but I can't put my fingr on it.

    i'm with everyone else - the fish wallpaper has to go. i'd also take tone down some of the other japanese influences.

    I was looking forward to HATING this one. But, I don't. It has such a vacation home feel to it.

    Except for that god awful fish wallpaper.

    Not for me-inside or out. Just not feeling it. Do love the dog.

    Nice fusion of styles, minus the wallpaper, the tile in the shower and the straw-like pillows on the bed.

    I like the fish wallpaper and hate the throw pillows on the sectional sofa thing and the marble topped living room table.

    This, and I'd also throw out all the orange items.
    Like the building/architecture, too.
