Beach House full with flea market finds – a happy home in Santa Cruz, California
When Jennifer Hodges built bought this House in Santa Cruz, California, in 1950, that everything should be renovated. As the first walls in the kitchen were demolished, so that it is larger, then a new parents bed room was built in the rear. The main concept of the owner is to buy what she loves. Without thinking about where it should be and why it fits. This adjustment was even avoided.
Look at the House:
Who lives here: Jennifer and Mark Hodges and her Bulldog Mack
Location: Santa Cruz, California
Size: 170 square metres, 3 bed rooms, 2 bathrooms and a Studio
Elegant living room in the eclectic style
The House is a mish-mash of things that represent the family, says Hodges. All things are popular here and have their own history.
The sofa with Slipcover from her grandmother is one of the Favorites. The reference is about the dog – he may even lie on the sofa.
The artwork is up by a local artist Carol Bowie, she got the friends as a gift, because the image has liked her very much.
The picture above the fireplace is of Suzanne Etienne, it’s called “Three amigos”.
I would define my style as “urban junk”, says Hodges. I am inspired by my mother, who died seven years ago. She had a knack for incredible style with limited budget and has constantly moving things back and forth, painted the walls, frame for children works made.Hodges has found two armchairs and a coffee table at Alameda Point antiques shop, she necessarily visited every first Sunday of the month.
Sunny living room
The family spends the weekends in the sunny living room and reads newspapers. Jennifer loves to drink their coffee in the big white Chair.
The Green cupboard in the corner of the living room is also popular
The Green cupboard in the corner of the living room is also popular, he was found in the antique shop. She asked every month for a year how much it will cost, the starting price was $2000, at the end she bought him for $500.

The dining table and chairs in the dining room are from a garage sale of the neighbour, the Interior Designer LORRI Kershner. “They are old, worn out and hard, but I love her. Garage sales and flea markets are our weekend excursions. This is the best recycling.”The mother-in-law of Hodges has made this mosaic in the dining room.
