This beach house will have you singing the blues… and whites…

Living on the coast of North Carolina lends itself to nautical decor themed homes and interior design. If you’re not careful, it is easy when trying to achieve a coastal feel to end up looking like the inside of a bad beach gift shop. In my opinion, simple is always best. Tried and true colors such as blue and white lend themselves to beach homes, coastal decor, and even traditional southern design.
I particularly love a white kitchen. I know this too shall pass, but the clean crisp white cabinets against a simple white backsplash make my heart happy. By adding the dark blue island with the wooden top, it breaks up the white and anchors the space with a warmer cozy feel. When designing any home, regardless of style or size, my goal is always to make it feel like home for both the homeowners and their guests. These gold bar stools were actually one of the main inspiration items for this entire home.
When it comes to dramatic impact, don’t fear the dark colors. When added to the appropriate space it can make such a statement. I love trim details, and when planning this space, I knew it needed to be special. We decided to paint this office Sherwin Williams Mt. Etna SW 7625 and combined it with the brushed gold light fixture, mirror and golden birch floors. This room, located just off the great room, tucked behind dual glass pocket doors makes any actual work that has to happen in here that much more enjoyable!
