Architecture is the focus in this modern marvel of a beach house with vistas of the Pacific Ocean and the Malibu seashore. These groovy digs are located in Manhattan Beach, California. This ergonomically designed residence has everything the home owner desires while maintaining the reflection of Southeast Asia in its design and execution.
The ground floor contains the covered parking area, a family room, home office, and a beach room. The middle floor is where the bedrooms are, and the top floor is the public area with the kitchen, dining room, and living room. That helps to maximize the ethereal views.
Different strains wood were used throughout the house including teak on the floors and for the staircase, mahogany for the doors and windows, and cedar slats for the ceiling.

Visit the newly opened models (model homes) by Beasley & Henley Interior Design!
The work was done for some outstanding builders of developments across Florida. The signature warmth, style, and comfort of Beasley & Henley can be seen in these rooms.
Builders may be cutting back on square footage to make homes more affordable, but designers like Beasley & Henley Interior Design are making sure that what they lose in size, they make up for in innovation.
That messy spot by the garage where backpacks, baseball gloves, and shoes were dropped on the floor used to be a problem area. Contemporary designers have transformed this so-called “stop-and-drop” into a main feature of floor plan design – and it helps sell homes.
Shelving, built-in storage, and lots of hooks give the space a defined purpose, and in the hands of the right designer, this small nook can take on a high-end look. Beasley & Henley Interior design recently won the award for “Stop-and-Drop as Best Feature” for their Mattamy Homes model in Central Florida. Located in Azalea Coves and priced from the mid-$100,000s, the model features the best of a small floor plan, including an indispensible stop-and-drop for organizing a busy family.
Kitchens are a pivotal selling point for homes at all price ranges. Beasley & Henley’s Gold-winning kitchen upgrade of the Rivertown model of Mattamy Homes in Jacksonville, FL, included a combination of painted and stained cabinets, usually only seen in higher-end homes. Of particular note was the designer’s use of glass cabinet door insets instead of solid wood cabinetry doors. The custom and fresh look of glass was the turning point from a typical kitchen to a “wow” kitchen.
Another hot commodity is the family gaming room often seen in loft homes. Beasley & Henley won the top Gold Award for another Mattamy model, The Laurel at Greenleaf Village in Jacksonville, FL, where the designers created a fun and comfortable gaming room with dedicated space for electronics, different sizes of controllers, specialty TV equipment, and a very large-screen TV for gaming and movies. Through their gaming room, the designers were able to address the modern family’s media needs while offering a space where they could spend time together.
The “flex space” is a recent idea seen incorporated into family home plans. The flex space is a room without a pre-determined purpose. Giving homeowners the freedom to do what they want with it is a great idea, but it can also be confusing. In a recent model, Beasley & Henley turned a small flex space at the front of a house into a “Chat Space”, a room with just a few comfy chairs and vibrant artwork where neighbors or friends can have a short chat instead of standing by the front door. Flex spaces can also serve as home offices or as rooms dedicated to schoolwork, hobbies, exercise, or any number of family needs.
There are a number of good builders vying for the business of entry- and mid-level homebuyers. It takes a good designer, with innovative ideas, to set these homes apart from the rest.

Here’s a press announcement about our new office in the gorgeous Naples!
Renowned interior design firm Beasley & Henley Interior Design, is pleased to announce the opening of its new studio location in Naples at 2241 Tamiami Trail East near 5th Avenue.
Beasley & Henley will be close to southwest Florida’s renowned architects and builders, as well as industry vendors close at its new location.
The award-winning interior design firm has been in the forefront of design in southwest Florida for the past 15 years. They have designed some of the region’s most important homes for their clientele of discerning homeowners, luxury homebuilders and architects.
Until this point, they have not had an office in the area, instead working at a distance from their offices in Central Florida. The firm works all over the country and even internationally, so servicing clients in southwest Florida was never a problem.
“Still,” says Design Principal Troy Beasley, “it was always in our minds to set up an office here, closer to our clients.”
In fact, the firm has been looking for a studio space in Naples for many years.
“We could never find the right spot, in the right location, with the mix we really wanted,” says Principal Stephanie Henley.
Luckily, their patience finally paid off with a studio space coming available on Tamiami East, just minutes from 5th Avenue.
Beasley & Henley’s is excited to open its new office. They are confident their current and future clients will benefit from the firm’s renewed commitment to their business in southwest Florida.
For more information on Beasley & Henley’s new offices, direction and hours, please call Stephanie Henley at 239-774-1005.
Beasley & Henley Interior Design is currently working on private residences, luxury builder models and condo common areas in Naples and Bonita Springs.
