{Beach House Tour} A Relaxing Georgia Beach House

Designer, Jim Howard was recently interviewed by Mimi Read of House Beautiful Magazine and his words show that he truly understands what a beach house should be!


Let the beach house be relaxed. Nothing too dear. I’ve done fancy beach houses, but when I go there, I see people walking around in shorts and flip-flops: a disconnect. Beach houses should be places where everyone can kick back. Open windows, people coming and going, grilling and spilling cocktails — it all has to be okay.

~ Jim Howard

Jim designed this relaxing beach house with a Nantucket-style kitchen, a spa-like bathroom, and kept a casual beach cottage style.



Our favorite part of the home is the kitchen; which is described as “Nantucket meets Spanish Revival.”  The pendant lights are an especially brilliant addition.



The bathroom isn’t too shabby either.  I think I’d end up spending the rest of my life soaking in the divine bathtub!



Every beach house has to have a dreamy canopy bed, right?
