Shingled Beach House: Designed by Mitch Wise

Beach House Tour by HomeBunch

I’m not sure if you’re noticing with my posts but I’m really missing summer lately. It was supposed to be warmer this weekend, but it was not. We had our fireplace on the whole time, which made everything feel much cozier and nicer, but I’m still missing the sunshine, the beach, the water.

Seeing this beach house bring good memories of hot summer days, when we all go to the beach and enjoy a couple of hours hearing the waves.

Well, I guess we’ll have to wait a little longer for that, but at least we can enjoy this beautiful beach house and dream with summer. Shall we?

Beach House

And this is my dream porch… :-)

Shingle Style

Wouldn’t you love to call it “home” and have the beach only a few steps away?

Star Light Star Bright

Stunning architecture.


Beautiful outdoor light fixture.

Living &  Dining

Bright and sunny.

My Kind of Living Room

I love when the furniture is placed closer together in a living room. It makes any conversation feel more intimate.



Dining Room

The dining room feels very informal. The rug is from Pottery Barn.


Perfect for a beach house! I love the splash of color added by the butcher block.

Sources: The potrack is from Howard Kaplan. Countertops: Carrara marble. The cabinets are custom- a cabinet shop in Green Bay,WI called Cabinet Masters. The paint color is also custom, but Sherwin Williams SW 7028, “Incredible White” is close. Backsplash: The tile is by Anne Sacks-a 3×5 crackle glaze subway tile. The pendants are Restoration Hardware.


The ceiling material used is traditional tongue and groove beadboard (not plywood). It is paint grade hardwood and two inches wide. According to the designer, this was a very high-end project, with quite detailed craftsmanship, and the individual tongue and groove boards give a more traditional look.

Family Room

 The family room feels cozy and so close to the water. I love the windows.  They’re beautiful!


Formal yet welcoming. Wall color is Sherwin Williams-”misty”.

Light Fixture

the light fixture is from Home Depot.


The floors are hand-scraped oak, with a slightly beveled edge. The stain is a water popped chocolate brown.


This space is all about timeless architecture.



Curves & Turns

 I love seeing people getting creative, but I can’t own something like this in my house. I’d look at this every time I passed by and I’d probably forget about the stairs… :-)

Guest Bedroom

Lovely. I adore the plates on the wall.

Favorite Flowers

My favorites…


Gorgeous furniture-like built-in.


The master is very spacious and has incredible views.

Wall color:  Sherwin-Williams Ancient Marble.


I love everything about this bathroom, especially the tiles– an octagon-dot, in satin finish, with dove gray grout. They’re by Daltile.


Bath is by Kohler, Wall Color: Sherwin Williams-Ancient Marble.

Shower Tiles

You can mix carrara marble with subway tiles to balance the expenses in a space.

Kids’ Bedroom

The desk is an antique piece purchased by the designer and the framed arts are nautical charts.


The balcony from the master.


Beautiful architecture, beautiful view… perfect home!

For Two

Who would you like to share this swing with?

Thank you so much for being here today! :-)

Wishing you all a very happy, healthy and blessed week.

Share some positivity with the people you meet this week and remember to always let people you love know how important they are to you.

with Love,

    My family ARK in Tiburon, California. This ARK is 100 years old and floated in the San Francisco Bay before the Golden Gate Bridge.

    I would not say no to it if it was offered but its much to ostentatious for my taste. Not a cottage, its a oversize mansion to the extreme. No one needs rooms that big! It seems very cold and un used. It has a obvious cold decorator stamp but nothing that says this is a home. I like my little 750 square foot beach cottage with a cozy feeling of home.
