The entryway is a simple, homey landing pad. We reframed the raw silk floral art we found in another part of the house to give it the presence it deserved - front and center! Natural materials and candles and the vases that look like beach glass, give this entry the feeling of the ocean.
This Contemporary private beach bungalow features clean white bed linens, black metal canopy, exposed beam ceiling, covered white armchair, sliding glass walls with neutral linen curtains, polished concrete floors, and a white desk space
This beautiful master bathroom is outfitted with custom cabinetry and mother-of-pearl tile from Marrakech, Morocco. Green glass vessel sinks add the perfect finishing touch to the beach-inspired space.
The spectacular shore view from this beach house is all the art that's necessary to complete the living room. It's gorgeous! Overstuffed upholstered chairs reflect a casual feel, and hardwood floors make for easy clean up. The coffee table with the rotating top is a unique and functional piece of furniture -- and conversation piece.
When the ocean's shore awaits just outside, do everything possible to highlight that amazing feature. A large glass door is a must! Here, uniquely arched ceilings reflect the shape of the door and allow light to rise, creating a lofty, open effect.
This creative concept used a variety of clear glass jars and vases to display colorful ornament balls, red berries and tea-light candles. Starfish and sand-filled jars keep the beach in mind during cold winter weather.
Glass lamps from Circa Lighting are filled with sand from a nearby beach for a coastal touch. Beyond the seating area, a 30-foot-wide telescoping glass door allows for an unobstructed path to the pool.
The glass fence creates soft screening between the front yard, pool, house and the public sidewalk. It also provides shelter from the salt-laden wind for the veggie beds and a couple of small fruit trees. Salvaged grape stake fencing keeps dogs out of the veggie beds, without discouraging a neighborly chat or exchange of produce.
