It's no secret that Christina Anstead is an expert designer—she's constantly turning drab spaces into dream homes on both of her hit HGTV shows, Flip or Flop and Christina on The Coast. All of that experience can mean one thing, and one thing only—that the hard-working mom of three has an incredibly designed home of her own. In the October issue of HGTV Magazine, Anstead opened up her doors to show off her dreamy bohemian modern farmhouse in Newport, California that she now shares with her new husband, Ant Anstead, and their blended family of five children.

When Anstead and her husband were looking for a new place that could house their new blended family, they both new exactly what they wanted. "Single level, preferably farmhouse style, and I've always loved a black and white home," she told HGTV Magazine.

The grand living room is where most of the family spends most of their time. It has high ceilings and large windows that let in ample amounts of natural light, and a perfect view of the backyard pool (which also had to undergo a pretty serious renovation). "I had this sectional made for my last house, so I was excited when it fit well in this space," she said of the charcoal gray sofa that acts as the room's centerpiece. Numerous comfy throw pillows and wooden chairs add a farmhouse feel to the industrial-style architecture.

The newlyweds' master bedroom marries both of their styles together as one—a mix of bohemian and industrial. The steel bed frame and light were actually both designed and handmade by Ant himself!

"We saw a similar light at a store, and I commented that it was cool, and the next thing I knew, Ant was building it," Anstead said. Talk about husband goals, am I right? Ant Anstead's handiwork also appears in the kitchen, where he handcrafted an entire metal and glass wine cabinet that can hold around 180 bottles.

Besides the impeccable styling, the Ansteads didn't have to do much for their black and white master bathroom. According to HGTV Magazine, the room was basically move-in ready when the house was purchased—and it goes perfectly with the master bedroom's theme.

The Anstead family's backyard (or should we say personal waterpark?) was an entirely different project on its own. The previous owners had built a pool on top of a pool, which ended up being disastrous for the Ansteads. The designer said she wanted the outdoor space to seamlessly flow to the indoor areas, so she used similar furniture on the patio that was featured in the living room. The giant pool also has a Cabo-inspired cabana, as well as a fun waterslide and spa area for the blended family of seven.
