La Costa home transformed into interior designer’s dream

For eight years, Renae Farley and her husband, Richard Pommer, spent weekends looking for their forever home, a place that was conducive to entertaining and had a downstairs master suite. They were thinking about building a home when Pommer was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. He died in January 2018.

The home, in a quiet La Costa neighborhood abutting the golf course, fit her requirements. So she decided to take a look.
