Middle Ground: Doorways lead from the bright entry and the cozy den into the dining room, which takes notes from both: Plates trimmed in gold reflect the metallic sheen of the entry chandelier; the driftwood gray table mentions the den's white-washed wooden walls.
Have a Seat: A settee upholsted in outdoor fabric fits perfectly into the carved-out dining alcove; the dining chairs can be added or taken away as needed.
Durable Goods: An outdoor-friendly rug and striped slipcovers on the chairs stand up to everyday wear.
Smooth Move: Bullnose doorway trim adds a sculptural feel to hallways throughout the house.
Set in Concrete: The sand-colored floors are a natural choice in a beach house, thanks to their durability and minimal maintenance. Here, they balance out the more formal qualities of the kitchen (like the marble backsplash and countertop).
Mixed Metallics: Combining different hardware finishes—such as the brushed bronze faucet, industrial steel range hood, and vibrant brass lamp shade lining—helps prevent the space from looking overly matchy and makes the room feel as though it evolved over time.
Sleep in Style: A traditional wooden four-poster bed establishes the master suite as the most formal bedroom in the home, while coastal accents like a sea grass rug and bamboo-shaped lamp keep it from being overly so.
Wonder Wall: Grasscloth walls provide just enough textural interest without being distracting.
Water Colors: A single, ethereal painting ties together the beachy blues and greens throughout the first floor.
Modern meets traditional: The vanity's contemporary qualities (square drawer pulls, floating installation) pair well with traditional Calcutta gold countertops and brushed brass faucets that match the bedroom's classic style.
Discreet screen: A casual woven window shade adjusts from the top and bottom, allowing outside light to enter the room without sacrificing privacy.
Pretty Inviting: The guests rooms riff on the palette of the neighboring master suite with shades of mustard, turquosie, and pea green. Linens are kept solid and simple, allowing the patterned bed frame to shine.
On Edge: Curtains crafted with solid-colored outdoor fabric are dressed up a tad with linen trim in a Greek key print.
Color Family: Painting everything in this room a variant of one color (the walls and beds in Pratt & Lambert's smoky gray Dependable, the ceiling a shade lighter, and the ladders in between ) gives the space depth.
Dual Purpose: The top bunks' safety rails double as tracks for ladders that slide along the beds.
Shine a Light: Each bunk has a privacy curtain and a sconce controlled by an individual switch so kids can stay up and read or snooze as they please.
Earthy Accent: A subtle tan stripe on the bunk curtains picks up the natural hues of the concrete flooring and woven shade.
Soft Approach: Cozy carpeting, curved linen chaises, and grasscloth walls soften the room's angled ceiling.
Set the Mood: Sconces at each end of the seats imbue the room with move-theater style—keeping all lighting on a dimmer makes it feel that much more luxe. (And the home's generator means stormy-day movies never get interrupted!)
At Your Service: Industrial-chic concrete garden stools beside each of the loungers bring an edgy touch to the space and give every moviegoer a personal place to keep soda and popcorn close at hand.
All Ears: Surround sound goes undercover with hidden speakers built into the grasscloth-covered ceiling, providing all the cinema experience in a much comier setting.
We've Got the Blues: The stormy gray-blue painted doors and window frames give the white stucco siding a face-life, and hint at the serene cerulean and light gray hues inside.
Coastal Roots: Indigenous grasses and walkways made of crushed oyster shells make for a textured, beachy poolside landscape. Native palms provide scenery and shade from the afternoon sun.
Tough Stuff: The contemporary lounges are made of wicker designed the withstand extreme sunlight and have midew-resistant cushions that shed water. Lime accessories pep up the deeper shades of the plantings.
