 When Claire Hooper first fell in love with the location of her Laguna Beach home, she knew the 2,000 square-foot house would require some serious space adjustments to make room for her family of six. Hooper’s family had been comfortably ensconced in a bigger home, but it was the convenient beach access that drew her to the new property. Instead of dreading the task of fitting everyone into the new space, she considered it her own personal project, and began the renovations, putting herself in the role of not only homeowner, but also designer. After refurbishing the home from top to bottom and overhauling its look, she was able to find room for all of her family’s favorite things by using built-in cabinetry, dual-purpose items and other clever storage solutions. Come back next week as we dive in with Claire and share her tips on organizing with custom cabinetry! By Torrey Kim and Sarah Jane O’KeefePhotos by Bret Gum
