While it’s getting chiller now this is the time when I actually get a lot of requests from clients on helping design their beach houses! I love working on beach houses. One of my happy places is by the ocean so, it’s nice to pretend for a little bit and design a second home with a water front view!
Normally all of the beach house projects gets done during the Fall/Winter while the homeowners are away. It’s a little strange to be sourcing beach related artwork while there is a chill in the air, but it’s amazing to see everything come together and ready for the family to enjoy once summer hits.
Here is a style plan I started work on for a colorful entryway last week:
No.1 Is this not the most perfect piece of artwork for a beach house? I just love the whimsy of it. It’s fun and happy and has a nod to the summer without being cheesy. Best part is that it’s from Minted and can be blown up to 44″ x 60″ if I wanted!
No.2 I wanted something to balance the artwork and I really like the idea of symmetry. Robert Abbey is always one of my favorite when it comes to colorful lighting. I’m really enjoying this new design. It’s available in a rainbow of colors!
No.3 An entertainment console always a lot of storage in it and can be used anywhere not just under a TV! I love this peacock blue console. It’s 60″ and can easily hold baskets that you can fill with sunscreen, googles, flipflops and you can even roll up some colorful beach towels in it.
No.4 Tassels on pillows make me so happy! This striped beauty is only $45!
No.5 My main inspiration point was this vintage kilim runner. Sadly since it is vintage it’s already gone, but I do love a bunch of the options in this shop.
No.6 A bamboo or rattan chair is normally really pricey. I wanted that vibe in this space and was very happy when I found this chair. Love that the lines of it, love that it has an Asian inspired nod to it and I love that there is a cushion on it. It can easily be recovered in Sunbrella fabric! Now I’m just trying to decide if I want to get a pair of them to continue the symmetry or the flank the console with one chair and a ceramic garden stool.
