At just under 1,000 square feet, designers had a lot of function to fit into a small space. The homeowners wanted to keep the original structure of the home their grandfather built, but they wanted it updated to include a functional kitchen, living areas and bedrooms, so designers created living spaces with an open concept on the beach side to take advantage of the home's magnificent beach view. Then, they tucked as many beds as possible in the second half of the house so that the entire family would have a place to sleep when the family visited the house.
As seen on Beach Flip, Contestants Lucy and Daphney removed all evidence of the old enclosed kitchen and created a large dream kitchen with lots of cabinetry, a huge island and stainless steel appliances on the first floor of the renovated Southwind condo.
The owner of this bedroom—a 4-year-old little girl—knew exactly what she wanted: a surfer girl theme with bright colors. A wash of blue, orange and yellow, plus a mix of bold patterns and fun accents deliver in an epic way.
Colorful glazed concrete blocks brighten the wall as visitors approach the front door of this modern beach house. Underfoot, large concrete pavers are situated in a bed of loose river pebbles, carving out a walkway.
This living and dining area provide a playful air of visual stimulation; lively punches of tangerine and kelly green merged with varying shades of cobalt and indigo blues. A heavy dose of woven sea grass added to the distinctive maritime air while an assortment of sea shells, blue-and-white pottery and a colorful collection of art came together to create a place of delight in this low-key beach cottage.

Various textures and coastal tones add beauty and interest to this open concept family room. Shades of blue, green, yellow and orange give the space a warm feel, making it a great place to relax and unwind. The custom sectional sofa divides the room into two seating areas.
Shiplap walls and white built-in bunk beds pair with sisal-style flooring and nautical light fixtures for a coastal look in this kids' room. A lifeguard chair and surfboard complete the whimsically beautiful design.
Crisp white walls, sleek white sofas and a clean-lined coffee table create a contemporary look in this pool house. A sisal rug and aqua surfboard add coastal flair, giving the space some sea-inspired personality.
A surfboard and lifeguard chair give this bunk room a punch of coastal style in a fun, kid-centric way. The life ring attached to the chair adds a vibrant splash of color to the otherwise soft-hued space.
Instead of going more traditional with this beach house's look (shells, surfboards, sea birds, oh my!), the designer let the ocean views and plentiful natural light set the coastal mood. Furniture and layouts are simple so as not to compete with the setting.
This beachfront beauty takes advantage of the abundance of natural light that rushes in from the windows at the front of the space. The white walls reflect this light, while pops of color add vibrance to the space. The yellow surfboard and blue accent highlight the colors of the surf and sand, seamlessly inviting the outside in.
