The 2012 Coastal Living Ultimate Beach House took place in quiet, sophisticated Rosemary Beach, Florida. The home is just the right size for family living and entertaining small groups.
The distinctive features of the architecture — clean lines and solid materials — are celebrated throughout the home. The light-filled living room opens into the kitchen. The flow between the two spaces is reinforced by a common neutral color palette which blends with beach house furniture for coastal living. Overall, the style could be characterized as transitional.
A guest bedroom is elegant and gender-neutral, with a mix of wooden and painted pieces. The soft greens in the soothing painting over the bed are echoed in lamps and pillows. In a smaller room like this, it is a good idea to exercise subtlety in color and pattern. The room features a classic four poster bed with side tables so don’t be afraid to mix in coastal nightstands.
The Florida sun is celebrated outdoors with a cheerful umbrella and apple-green pillows. You can find more inspiration in our outdoor and garden collection.
