Coastal Home With Gray Exterior and Bright White Trim
A cool color palette perfectly suits this beach home. Blue-gray siding is accented with thick white window frames, columns and trim. Covered porches on the first and second floor add depth to the exterior and create a space to enjoy the ocean air in any weather.
Coastal Home With Stucco Exterior and Roundabout Driveway
This gorgeous coastal home features a neutral stucco exterior paired with a Spanish tile roof. Paver stones cover the roundabout driveway, while palm trees and other tropical plants dot the front yard.
To give the outdoor dining area a coastal touch, the designers layered the reclaimed wood table with plates and linens in warm tones, like teal and coral. Starfish accents and a seahorse centerpiece further evoke thoughts of the beach.
As if this outdoor space weren't alluring enough, an accent wall with a TV and bar makes leaving nearly impossible. A metal chandelier draws interest to the textured ceiling overhead, while curtains can be pulled out to block the wind.
Beach House Balcony Offers Panoramic Views of Sand Dunes, Atlantic Ocean
A public beach access walkway creates additional space between this New Hampshire beach house and the neighboring one and opens up more panoramic views from the two upper levels of the home. Glass safety walls were chosen for the balcony, limiting the interruption of the views of the sand dunes and Atlantic Ocean.
Small Patio With Seafoam Blue Striped Rug Under Woven Bubble Furniture With Yellow Throw Pillows
In a small outdoor space, an outdoor rug can play multiple roles, creating a seating “island” as it does here, adding color and style, and making the area appear larger thanks to the introduction of an overall pattern. Designer Annastasia Mitchell chose this rug carefully for its seafoam blue color, which repeats the apartment’s interior color palette, “providing a sense of visual flow,” she says, and to repeat the horizontal pattern of the louvered windows.
The design of the pool deck mimics the front porch, which ties the spaces together. Synthetic turf between the lounging space and the pool allows the surface water to drain and creates maximum flexibility in the use of the tight space for entertaining. The flooring is made of a tropical hardwood.
White and Turquoise Guest Bedroom With Black Metal Framed Windows
Natural light illuminates this coastal guest bedroom. Black metal frames the windows, while white bed linens cover the gray upholstered bed. Turquoise pillows and a striped rug add pops of color, while white nightstands with glass lamps are positioned on either side of the bed.
Perched 10 feet above the ground, this 600-square-foot deck, clad in durable garapa wood, is an outdoor extension of the home's great room and provides a cinema-like experience of the natural surroundings.
The swing bed underneath the pergola provides views of the resort-style backyard. Annual planters offer seasonal color nearby. Lighting around the yard ties the space together to create an at-home resort getaway.
