Driftwood accents and wall art that's as subtle as seafoam trailing over sand tie this coastal living room to its seaside setting and layer it with interesting texture. Window treatments and furnishings are neutral, drawing the eye to the peaceful ocean view beyond. Sheer draperies add to the room's ethereal feel.
Piled boulders create an organic boundary between the beach and this charming fire pit, but keep the views on full display. Beach glass and shells are incorporated into the custom-made concrete-and-teak furniture.
Vaulted ceilings, a crisp white color palette and incomparable ocean views make this bedroom a dreamy retreat. Slide back the glass doors and step outside to the terrace to soak up the sun and seaside air.
Nestled at the mouth of Little Harbor, this Cape Cod-style home includes breathtaking seaside views. Four lawn chairs in the backyard offer the perfect front row seat for watching the sunset over the water.
With the addition of a new kitchen, the space is highly suitable for large family gatherings. The new structure was designed to not detract from the existing space––but to seamlessly transition from old to new. With thoughtful selection of finishes and materials, the designers were conscious of the overall aesthetic of modern seaside living.
The homeowners wanted a beachy feel in their space, so designers incorporated seaside elements wherever they could. In the dining room, photographs of beaches and a sunburst mirror help to bring that feel to life.
With a private pool, pavilion and tropical garden, this lush backyard designed by Carl Gilley becomes a serene retreat in the backcountry of the Florida Keys. Two canals nearby give the owners a safe space to stow their boat and provide a clear route to the ocean.
