Beach House Inspiration

As soon as I saw the featured photo of this beach house on Coastal Living, which showed surfboards I had to tour the house. The house itself is located in Washington and has a gorgeous view and a coastal interior design. I say "coastal" instead of "beachy" because when I think of a beach house I think of an overwhelming amount of beachy items, including shells, starfish, blues and whites, etc. This coastal house incorporates the beach without being overwhelming. I love the rustic details, the calming paint colors (grays, tans, lavender), the big windows that let in the natural light, and the overall comfort of the home. See the photos below:

The great room is my favorite room in the house. I love the rustic feel with the hardwood floors and dining table, the light fixtures and natural paint color. The fireplace adds to the cozy feel of the home and I especially love the built-ins. I also love the living space with the natural light and bamboo shades and the reading area. I love the pop of purple in the wing-back chair and the use of a garden stool as a side table. The pink flowers in the background also add color to the room.

I hope you can find some inspiration in these photos to incorporate into your home!
