A new development from Planet Home Living, VITAE is a community of coastal residences located in Costa Mesa, home of surfer dudes, tech-y professionals and beach-loving families alike. It's a laid-back mix of lifestyles -- and Madison Modern Home was called in to stage two units to reflect these diverse tastes. We responded by pulling together two different styles. VITAE I is based on beachy blues, high-touch textiles and a fresh color palette. All photos by Christopher Lee

We found tie-die and Shibori linen pillows from etsy sources like WanderHomeCreations
A custom-made linen slipcovered sofa speaks beachy-fresh while inviting swimsuit-clad kids -- and even dogs -- atop its washable fabric. A tree stump side table from West Elm and a potted cactus bring the Eastside cool.
Tom Dixon-style pendants oversee a white quartz-topped kitchen island. We added industrial bar stools. Outside on the patio, a living wall of herbs and greens fresh for the picking.
Pier One's Eastwood dining table pairs with wishbone chairs for a global play on beach house style. Blue and white pull the look together.
A view toward the kitchen reveals a blue hex tile backsplash and warm wood cabinets. Our schoolhouse-style counter stools evoke industrial charm.
Details, details. Because they matter.
The pillow is from Living Spaces and the side table is a Home Goods find.
The master bedroom sports a mix of white and blue linen bedding from sources like H&M Home and etsy sellers. A Living Spaces trunk has a beachy weathered wood feel and a rattan lounge chair from World Market adds laid-back style. It all sits on a Moroccan shag rug from RugsUSA.
A sliding barn door telegraphs relaxed living.
Recipe for success: Plants, plants and more plants. And even more plants. Did we mention that we love plants?
In a guest bedroom, a blue ombre lamp from Urban Outfitters echoes a blue ombre pillow, found on etsy.
We love sourcing interesting items from unlikely sources like overstock.com, site of this end table find.
