A symmetrical landscape and minimalist design combine to create this lovely two-story beach house in Miami. Floor-to-ceilings windows on both levels allow plenty of natural light to filter through the rooms during the daytime.
This Miami Beach swimming pool is surrounded by lush tropical plantings, including palm trees, on one side and a contemporary covered deck on the other. The modern aluminum trellis connects the open outdoor kitchen and dining pavilion with the dock.
The large dining table in the dining area of this beach house pulls in the feel of the sea with the intricate detail in the backs of the dining chairs, while the fixture above the table adds elegance to the design of the space.
This classic beach cottage in Santa Barbara was in need of an update and expansion. The exterior had to meet specific guidelines for the neighborhood: warm wood materials, low-slung traditional forms and a style appropriate to both the ocean and adjacent natural salt marsh.
Beach Flip contestants Martha and Alex installed new wood flooring, painted the second floor master bedroom with a refreshing light blue color and installed new curtains and a sliding barn door at the renovated Comfort Breeze condo.
Bring the natural beauty of the coast inside by incorporating beach-inspired elements, like this driftwood-toned wooden table and sea-colored glassware. The seascape painting above the mantel reminds you that the water is never far away.
