Design Quandary Solved: How To Do Beachy Without Being Overly ... Beachy.

When people think "beach house" their minds often go straight to nautical themed art, faux distressing, wood paneled signage with cheesy slogans and a whole lot of blue and white ...



IMO the best beach houses are a bit more subtle in nature. They utilize natural materials like linen, jute and wood to visually remind us of the tones found at the beach without being so ...direct. Mixing natural materials with collected pieces like vintage textiles, sun hats hanging on a wall, gathered shells from a day of beach combing, or a beautiful photo of the ocean creates an unfussy laid back luxury that is inherent in coastal living. It's all about balance!
