Paper lantern lights hang at staggered heights from the exposed ceiling beams in this covered patio. A jute area rug, rustic wood coffee table and driftwood sunburst mirror add texture and warmth to the space.
One side of this pool house remains open to look out into the yard and let in a cool breeze. The gray sectional couch, barn pendant lights and built in cabinets make this outdoor space make feel as comfortable as an indoor one.
An eclectic bedroom features formal elements such as the crystal chandeliers, yet is made casual and inviting with the addition of the exposed beams, lush white linens and Flokati rug. The primary design element, though, is the ocean outside: It's brought in visually by the expansive windows that surround the room on three sides.
The outdoors leap in -- and vice versa -- in this stunning midcentury modern home. Large glass doors slide aside to open an entire wall between the patio and living room. The white and neutral tones in the comfortably decorated room allow the colors of the lawn, shrubs and pool to be the vibrancy in the space.
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.
Designing a room that's mostly or all white ensures you'll have a room that always feels streamlined and clutter-free. This modern eat-in kitchen features expansive counter space, hardwood floors and a cozy round kitchen table for four. The landscape just out the large sliding glass door brings nature and color into the room.
