raili clasen's kitchen of the month


From beginning to end, this month’s issue
of House Beautiful is stunning.

Very rarely am I this excited
page after page after page.

Starting with this farm-house inspired beauty 
designed by Raili Clasen of Raili CA Designs.


Here in Newport Beach, many of us are familiar 
with the Raili's (pronounced Riley) Designs
because several of the homes 
she's designed have been 
part of the Newport Harbor &
Corona del Mar Home Tours.

We've seen these homes inside and out,
up close and personal,
and they do not disappoint!


This huge kitchen is as big as a barn,
according to Raili, and measures 20 x 25 feet,
and that Caesarstone topped island measures 
in at 14 feet in length.

Three huge pendants from Urban Electric Company 
add drama and much needed scale over the island and
a single row of eleven bare Edison bulbs light 
the dining room table.

Ann Sacks cement tiles are the perfect visual aid 
for the backsplash behind the cooktop and 
on an adjacent wall at the dry bar.


The outdoor spaces are just as important as the indoor ones,
so architectural designer Eric Olson designed a huge
fireplace to be the focal point
and gathering spot for the outdoor lounge area
that's framed by two matching pergolas.


Several of Raili's homes have been featured on the
two that were her own private residences.

Her first design project, which was her own home, 
was featured on the Newport Harbor Home Tour in 2013.


It may look familiar to you because it’s been
in Better Homes & Gardens magazine
and on pinterest a lot!


Here’s her other private home that was featured
on the home tour in 2015.


I love how her style evolves,
but she still brings out the fun in every room. 


You can tell from this overall shot of the
kitchen, living room and dining room
how spacious the entire home is.



What do you think of this kitchen?


This outdoor space is just a peek at Raili’s design for
this home that was in the Corona del Mar Home Tour.  


Here’s a tongue-in-cheek little detail from a house
that’s a few blocks from mine, also featured in print.


How about a little floor-to-ceiling cement tile?

Raili’s not afraid to take chances! 


Hoping your Monday is moving along smoothly…
have a good one!
