BEAUTY: Interior--Steve Jones
Pacific City is a new oceanside village in Huntington Beach in Southern California that will include retail, office, and residential spaces. Since Pacific City is currently under construction, the only structure on the site is the modular trailer leasing office... but Steve Jones of bettershelter was brought in to eliminate that ugly-trailer vibe of temporary leasing offices. He created a marvelous space that feels like a funky beach cottage adorned with near-kitschy vintage lighting and fun retro objects and art that relate to Southern California, surfing, and Huntington Beach. I love how Jones took a commercial building and turned it into a fun get-away spot, warming and softening the interior with sisal flooring, Persian rugs, and comfy seating!
