A three-bedroom, two-bathroom Long Beach home, on the market for $1.195 million, is filled with European touches.

The previous owners hired an Italian designer who worked exclusively on the house for a year and a half, bringing in such artistic touches as Venetian plaster walls with marble dust in the main living area and a carved wood front door with thick squares of colored glass.

"The front of the house faces directly south, so when the sun shines through, the entry room lights up like a Mondrian painting," says listing agent Jean Sondergaard of Petrey West Realty.

There are panels of glass from Italy in the open kitchen, and the pebble flooring in the master suite shower was hand-picked from multicolored pebbles to weed out any except blues, greens and whites.

Many rooms overlook Reynolds Channel. Outside are two decks, a pier, a floating dock and an outdoor shower.
