The owners' love of the sea and all things natural are showcased in vibrant style in this Floridian dining room. Handmade cane seat chairs and a matching Asian-inspired table provide a fashionable seating arrangement for guests. A shell embellished mirror adds drama and depth to the space.
Cozy up hard outdoor furniture with pillows and throws to make kicking back in your great outdoors even more enjoyable. But, to prevent damage and a musty smell, don't use indoor (especially down-filled) cushions. Instead, opt for durable outdoor-rated fabric filled with water-resistant polyfill inserts and swap in a Turkish beach towel, which dries super fast, for a standard throw.
Tropical Backyard Pool With Rope Swing and Waterfall
This tropical backyard features a rope swing from an artificial tree, a large slide that takes you underground before you enter the pool, a large grotto for staying cool, a rope bridge over the pool, a spa and a tanning ledge.
Capiz shell chandeliers, soothing blue walls and bright blue and green accessories lend a beachy feel to this living space. Exposed wood beams and hardwood floors add warmth to the room, while a large white sectional is the perfect spot to cozy up with views of the sea beyond.
This heavily carved four poster bed with mosquito netting drapes takes you to the tropics. The bed and nightstands are mahogany and ornately carved to reflect the colonial influences in Caribbean decor. Soft gray walls lighten the heavy furniture.
Wood and Blue-Glass Tile Staircase With Modern Railing
A variety of materials are used to make the staircase in this gorgeous coastal-style home. Dark wood steps and blue-glass tile risers complement the horizontal metal railing and the white wood posts and baseboards. The blue tile lends color, texture and protection against scuff marks.
Striped awnings shade this stone tile deck from the Caribbean sun. Potted topiary, potted citrus and a palm tree bring tropical lushness to the space. Striped chairs allow you to sit awhile and enjoy the view.
Breezy Covered Porch With Tropical Waterfront View
This relaxing covered porch boasts blue and neutral accents throughout nestled under a wood paneled ceiling. A glass coffee table sits at its center, while arched doorways give way to a tropical waterfront view.
Just off of the grand main staircase sits a luxurious great room, complete with hand-hewn walnut flooring that continues over to the adjacent gourmet kitchen. The large stone fireplace extends from floor to ceiling, while two wicker sofas and matching ottomans boast neutral cushions. Blue throw pillows add a pop of color.
