At Home With Rocky Barnes

A blue beach cottage sits firmly atop the gorgeous La Jolla cliffs as the waves crash against the shore below.

Out walks Free People swim model, Rocky Barnes, barefoot and beaming. The California native has energy so electric you can almost touch it. She has graciously opened up her home for us to shoot the new swim collection on the beach below, only steps away from her front door. After the initial hugs and hellos, she takes us on a tour of her beautiful abode, which she and her husband just recently finished renovating. It’s peaceful. Bright. Natural. Everything you would expect from a California beach house.

Huge windows and sliding glass doors open up to the patio on one side and the ocean on the other, the beach air dances through the house in the cross breeze. Bright green plants are perfectly placed around the house and the color pops brilliantly against the white walls. Seashells, sand dollars, and sea glass are a regular occurrence on tables and shelves. Rocky collects them from all over the world and brings them back home to add to her ever-growing and gorgeous shell collection. (She even had all of us searching for shells and sea glass on the beach while we were shooting!) I notice stunning Moroccan rugs, vintage maps on the wall, and wellness cookbooks in the kitchen. A surfboard leans nonchalantly against the wall next to the front door. A bed of succulents hang on the wall on the large open patio, overlooking a fire pit, where she and her friends frequently hang. This home is what relaxed California living is all about — comfort and ease. Read on to discover more of Rocky’s inspiring beach dwelling:

As we were packing up to leave, the most breath-taking sunset I have ever seen, gave us a jaw-dropping and heart-stopping show. Thank you Anthony, our photographer on the shoot, for this next set of photos. Wowza.

Adding beach life to my home is so important. I don’t live near the see but feel strongly connected to the ocean. I have a collection of shells from world travels, driftwood on mantels, ppaintings of my favourite beaches, beautiful objects I happened upon primarily a beautiful green glass bottle. This cottage is seriously inspirational

A dream house so fresh and airy

Gosh…that fiery sunset…

I love seeing the inside of people’s homes, sometimes it can tell you more about the person than a face-to-face conversation. You can tell from these photos that she not only lives a beautiful life but also a happy and healthy one too! Nice work:):)

Awsome!
I hope to live!

A dream home near beach side is awesome, she organizes the decors in her home wisely and neatly. I like her room interiors and seashell collections. The renovation of my kitchen space is going to be done by <a href=”http://www.ridgewaydesigncentre.ca/services/kitchens/” a well known home design centre in Oakville . I am super excited by the demo of my restyled area. I will meet my designers for the same purpose as soon as possible. Green plants around my home, would look lovely. The sunset shots are amazing!

So inspirational!

Too bad they are over now. : ( Fame always messes with people’s heads.

Her and her husband got divorced??? I always wondered why she never had photos of him and vice versa. Makes sense with the recent pics on IG of her and some photographer together.

Kayla

Such a beautiful home. I like she’s not skinny and more of a masculine type model, because so many are bone thin. She is more muscle build and healthy a lot of people say she is too manly? I don’t think so just more athletic. Looking great to me!

Diane

One of the single-most beautiful ladies around! Stunning home! Gorgeous sunset. Exquisite taste, all around!
