Home at Beach Retail Store in Long Beach Washington

Home at the Beach for Coastal Home Decor


I’m picky…yep, I said it! What am I picky about?  My beach house decor stores!  What happened to cause this reaction in me, well for starters I use to own a retail gift shop so I know the effort it takes to run one on a day-to-day basis.  The second reason is because I live in a beach town where kitschy nautical gifts are the standard fair. Last but not least, I’m a DIY gal so if it isn’t a cherished gift, hand-me-down or handmade by me then it’s probably not in my home.

…which brings us to today’s article about Home at the Beach.  Yes, I have a “home at the beach” however this is actually the name of my favorite Long Beach, WA. coastal home decor store!  This store checks all my boxes in a positive way and I wholeheartedly approve of the job their doing.  Their store is a 25 minute drive south of my home (which in these parts is nothing!) and I was pleasantly surprised when I ventured into this amazing and friendly coastal home decor store.  The owners let me visit with them last month and I had a wonderful time taking photos and chatting with them about their venture.

Owners, Karyn Zigler and Kathy Mathews, share a passion for excellence… and it shows in everything they do! From the moment you walk through the doors of Home at the Beach, you feel warm and welcomed.  A beautiful smile, warm greeting and extraordinary home decor does it every time!  Kathy is an accomplished artist and has graced one of the store’s walls with a welcome beach scene.  The scenery immediately draws you right into their coastal home store and sets the mood for the uplifting experience that you’re going to have.  There are recycled furniture pieces by Kathy for sale throughout the store too.

Although small in square footage, Home at the Beach, is chock full of merchandise from numerous decorating categories, but all with a Northwest Coastal feel!  It’s quite apparent that products are displayed with true artistic flair and special thought has gone into each display.  Although bursting with coastal home accents, the stores floor plan doesn’t feel crowded, which I personally love.   I can also guarantee that you’re not going to find any “kitchy” gifts here.  Karyn and Kathy have tastefully selected coastal decor and art pieces for your enjoyment.

One of my favorite store sections is the wondrous pieces of Beach Jewelry which they offer.  See the starfish necklace pictured below? (top right of the collage).  Yeah, it’s pretty fabulous so I had to take it home with me!

One of the main reasons for my visit to Home at the Beach is their one year anniversary celebration AND the official opening of their design center.  That’s right, these ladies are multi-talented!  They not only have one of the most beautiful coastal home retail shops around, but they are also interior designers with a full-service design studio.

Karyn & Kathy saw a need for this type of design service as numerous retail customers kept asking for interior design advice.  The rest is history and a new business division was formed!  The ladies are great at selecting carpet and tile, however they really excel at assisting homeowners with finishing touches.  “We’re great at suggesting how to pull a room together.”  The ladies keep busy as they travel to local homes for design estimates and customers now have the opportunity to do some shopping and come relax in the design center directly.  Carpet, floor, wallpaper and ceramic tile samples abound and more samples are coming soon.

If you currently reside in SW Washington or the North Coast of Oregon, I can attest to the fact that it’s well worth the drive to visit this store and interior design center.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you
    can do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog.
