Laguna Beach, California


When the founder of Moya Living purchased this Laguna Beach home, she reveled in the open layout of her kitchen which flowed into their living room and outside patio. The home was built in 1932 and called for kitchen renovations so O’Neill made the space contemporary by adding black lowers and white uppers. She was drawn to black, but knew that all black cabinets would make the room feel heavy. The wall cabinets were designed to encapsulate their Sub-Zero fridge. A minimalist kitchen with ample storage, that is well suited for big dinner parties. Their 1954 restored O’Keefe and Merritt stove demonstrates how well steel pairs with old and new. Wood shelving was sourced from The Vintage Wood Company, who discovered these beauties at an old tobacco mill. This home is the perfect example of how something unexpected can look perfectly at home.
