Coastal Stairway With Sisal Runner and Blue & White Railing
White shiplap covers the ceiling and walls leading up the home's second level. The staircase features a sisal runner that stretches over the stairs and landing. A white railing topped with blue handrails completes the look.
The turquoise front door opens into a bright airy foyer and stair space. This space sets the tone for the modern coastal style of the home. Thanks to wood paddles for wall decor, white shiplap walls and ceilings, a simple black railing and three brass, coastal-feel light fixtures, there is a definite beachy vibe when you first walk in.
By simply changing the millwork, this entry and stair space got a huge refresh. Shiplap walls greet visitors to an immediate ‘by the water’ feel. That combined with the watery painting featuring bold turquoises and greens (that reminded designers of lily pads) drives home the coastal feel. A LED light in the glass ball on the newel post is set to a photocell - so it comes on each night when it gets dark!
Modern Coastal Foyer Sitting Area With White Bench
Treated and stained driftwood stands on display as a sculptural piece of art that adds an organic textural element to this coastal modern foyer. A refurbished antique bench gets a bohemian update with indigo tie dye pillows. The photo of rippled sand calls to mind again the coastal inspiration for this space.
The open entryway of this Cape Cod-style waterfront home features whitewashed, paneled walls, a curving banister and a rattan console table that speaks to the home's casual, coastal mood. Pale hardwood floors and a neutral carpet runner on the stairway combine with the white walls and trim to create a clean, crisp, neutral backdrop that's both restful and stylish.
The white paneling throughout this home's main floor interior is a subtle nautical nod to its lakefront location. The coastal theme is continued via the artwork and custom vents designed to look like fish scales.
The house's attic gets fresh new life as a colorful sitting area with a small dining table and cozy spots to curl up with a book. Cheery patterns brighten up the armchairs and window. The wood floor gets a shipshape coat of nautical blue.
