Weathered woods combine with sleek stainless steel and concrete to create a backyard retreat that's cool and stylish. With multiple seating areas, the space can comfortably host an intimate gathering or larger party.
Weathered wood floors, light-hued walls and artwork in shades of blue and green combine to give this cottage a coastal aesthetic. Large windows allow in plenty of natural light for a bright, breezy atmosphere.
Twin columns stand at the front of this outdoor space, with weathered wood that evokes a sense of history and place. As guests descend the stone steps towards the pool, they can hold tight to a custom handrail that was designed to mimic vines.
Heavily distressed flooring and ceiling beams turn the hallway of this Austin home into a standout space in its own right. Dark trim pops against the off-white walls and ceiling, and a row of lanterns mimics the lines of the arched openings.
A framed print of ocean coral adds a subtle pop of color, which is echoed by the decorative coral on the nautical white dresser, in this neutral bedroom. The weathered wood bed frame and bench also nod to the room's coastal theme.
Tucked beside a luxuriously furnished bed, this vintage two-drawer chest in distressed gray wood provides ample storage and just the right amount of space on top for a small lamp, an alarm clock, and a mercury-glass vase of flowers.
The Norwegian lifestyle is laid back and low-maintenance, preferring a more natural approach. There’s no need for stain when the sealed wood weathers to a lovely silver-gray patina over time. And cottage guests love stepping out onto their own private deck in the mornings with coffee.
