This quaint coastal cabin sits on False Bay in South Africa.  The cabin features relaxed design elements for the laid-back lifestyle of coastal living. These photos were our favorites from the home tour.  They express our favorite go-to color palette of white and blue and enough shabby chic to keep it comfy.  We could spend a long while here, how about you?

Discovered on My Paradissi!

Beach House Windows: 10 Amazing Views!

 

You are NOT going to believe the amazing Beach House Windows we found for you! Each room features windows that showcase wondrous views of the ocean and many are also architecturally stunning. You’ll quickly notice that although each beach house is different in style, that the window and/or treatments are meant to draw the eye to the view; not the design or curtains.   Essentially, I’m trying to say “keep it simple” and let the view take center-stage!

Don’t forget to PIN your favorites and if you aren’t already, give Sally Lee by the Sea on Pinterest a follow!

Modern Beach House Tour: Caribbean Style

 

Amsterdam’s architectural firm, Piet Boon has created a beautiful Caribbean Beach Villa interior design. The villa features a distinct personality and attention to detail.   Piet Boon Architecture comprises an expert team of architects led by Piet Boon and Chief Design Officer Roland Kokkeler and beach villas are one of their specialties.

Selecting sustainable materials was important when designing the interior of the Caribbean Beach Villa. “As the house has an open structure, the materials used had to be able to withstand the salty air but also age beautifully. Living spaces like the open kitchen are placed on the top floor in order to get the best breathtaking sea view. The accents in the natural color palette are derived from the cacti and aloe vera in the living spaces and outdoor. Local materials, characteristic for the island of Bonaire, Netherlands, are used for walls and floors. Lying in the gazebo gives you the illusion of floating on the clear water. As the panoramic seascape is beautiful, we arranged the outdoor furniture so it could be enjoyed in all its glory late into the evening.”  Enjoy the tour!

Matthew Perrys Beach House

Modern Beach Home: Matthew Perry’s Malibu House

Matthew Perrys Beach House

Former Friends star, Matthew Perry, purchased a beach home in Malibu, California two years ago, for around $12 million. The four-bedroom home sits so close to the water that at high tide, the ocean actually rushes underneath the cantilevered structure – -that’s what we call beach front living at its finest!

According to RadarOnline.com, “The home measures at a spacious 5,500 sq. feet, with four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. Amenities include amazing views of the Pacific Ocean, a wood-crafted kitchen with impeccable stainless steel appliances, and giant wood beams that overhang for a modern look complementary of the location. A golden wooden floor makes for the foundation of this contemporary classic.”

Northern California’s Stinson Beach Home Tour

 

Growing up, my mother and I often frequented Stinson Beach along the Northern California coast.  Anytime I happen upon a beach house in this area of the world, it always catch’s my attention.

San Francisco firm , Butler Armsde Architects shares the story of the Stinson Beach House project. “In 1950 a family bought a lot on the ocean at Stinson Beach, but it wasn’t until 1982 that they began to plan a house for three generations. Besides the natural challenges of the coastal environment, there was the additional requirement of having the house carry forward the spirit of a William Wurster designed house built for the same family in Santa Cruz in 1935. The William Wurster house was well known as his only real courtyard house, and also for the large outdoor living room that was very unusual for its time.”

“The house plan evolved into an H shape, with a living room at the center, and the wings creating outdoor spaces facing both the Pacific Ocean, and the coastal range, in either direction. Rather than having an outdoor living room, the traditional living room has large sets of sliding doors that open to a position that matches the adjoining windows exactly, creating a distinctly outdoor experience. Depending on the weather, the doors can be open to the ocean, mountains, or both which provides great flexibility for enjoying the outdoors, indoors. ”

An Autumn Beach Escape to Fire Island via Apartment Therapy 5

Fire Island Beach Shack: An Autumn Escape

 

You’ll know his website but probably not his name.  Maxwell Ryan, founder of Apartment Therapy, left teaching in 2001 to start the successful company as a way to help people make their homes beautiful.   He’s certainly succeeded!  He even shares some of his personal adventures with readers, including an Autumn Escape to Fire Island.

“We were visiting old family friends and planning on a rest-filled retreat on this unusual island with no cars and very little in the way of amenities. It’s all salty beach shacks and simple interiors that usually get shut down during the winter months.” ~ Maxwell Ryan, Apartment Therapy.

This quirky “beach shack” is just fine with us and we’d gladly stay a few days if given the opportunity.
