If I ever lived on the coast, be it east or west, this is the house I would choose if money were no object. Today’s home is the epitome of the perfect beach house. Let me know if you agree!
Blue and white mixes with sandy wood tones throughout the coastal style house. And remember what I said about windows earlier this week? This home has plenty of custom windows to let in oodles of natural light and sea air.
High ceilings throughout the beach house creates lofty appeal and a sense of spaciousness. I’m crushing on the natural wood ceilings!
A hallway enjoys a wall of windowed French doors to the right, with sliding barn doors on the left.
And look what’s revealed when you slide the barn doors open! A beautiful office. You can step out from working and right around the corner is a handy bar. So if you like to work in Mad Men fashion and grab a cocktail in the middle of the day – you’re in luck!
A two-toned stairway leads to the upper level where you’ll find beautiful bedrooms. You don’t need a lot of wall adornments when you have textured walls like shiplap. And there’s those wood ceilings again!
I don’t use a lot of blue inside my home, but I love the subtle washing of the color throughout this beach house. It’s just the right touch of color – it doesn’t fight with all the fabulous architectural elements.
The beach house bathroom is a dream with its painted wood work, stone tile, and free standing soaker tub – not to mention the walk-in shower.
While most people might not like sleeping a room with so many windows, I find it to be my dream. First of all, you can open the windows and enjoy the sea air and the sound of rolling waves. Secondly, you can always pull the curtains shut if need be, but I would probably leave them open and wake with the sun.
Throughout the coastal style home you’ll find plenty of nooks and crannies all beautifully yet simply decorated. What’s not to enjoy?
