Nantucket beach home tour designed by Workshop/apd

Redefining Nantucket Style with Modern Sensibility

Andrew Kotchen and Matthew Berman of  workshop/apd are two of the most innovative designers of their generation.  Based in New York City and Nantucket Massachusets, the firm specializes in high-end residential renovations as well as new home construction, and commercial development.  Projects have an emphasis on the integration of sustainable methods that can help to identify and solve the challenges of the built environment in the 21st Century.

This week’s Beach House Tour is actually a complex of six shingled homes, each 3,500 square feet, and located in historic Nantucket.  Each residence was sited to maximize privacy while taking advantage of outdoor living areas.   You’ll find that each home offers coziness and 19th century cottage details; however they are full of technology and every convenience imaginable.

A Long Island Beach Cottage Tour

 

A darling little white beach cottage! Sculptor Elena Colombo has created a lively getaway in a turn-of-the-century Long Island beach cottage.  The cottage is packed full of found objects and eye-popping colors.  As an added bonus, the cottage is surrounded by the Peconic Bay shore.  Elena has an incredible sense of color and amazing ability to improvise and create unique pieces that complement her furnishings.  You’ll be fascinated by the cottage’s “pops of color” which surprise and delight the eye.  If you love inviting and happy cottages, then you’ll fall head over heels for Elena’s place.

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.”
