Who wouldn’t love to live on the beach? I would love to be able to sit in my home and gaze out over the ocean, watching the waves crash against the sand. Just writing that makes me feel at ease and calm. To get up each morning and take a stroll on the sand would be heavenly. How about a nighttime walk watching the moon reflected on the water?
Beach House Architecture:
You can’t go wrong when you are near the beach and surrounded by palm trees like this sweet little beach cottage.

This grand beach home has classic low country style. This was the Southern Living Idea house for 2019 on Amelia Island, Florida.
Shingle style homes are a classic along the coast in the Hamptons.

Beach House Interiors:
There are so many ways to decorate a beach house. One thing everyone wants in a beach house is places to relax and enjoy the beach lifestyle. A comfortable swing bed is just begging for you to take an afternoon nap after a morning of fun on the beach.
The high ceilings in this room give it such a feeling of expansive space. The windows look out over the water, just lovely.
…lots of extra beds for all those guests that are going to want to come and visit when you live by the beach! I hope to have a bunk room built into my new home to house my grandchildren. A bunk room just seems so fun, tucking into your own cozy little space.

This master bedroom is dreamy. Wainscotting on the walls, the plantation shutters on the windows and the shuttered front on the armoire all add to the coastal feel of this room.
A beach house bathroom with trompe l’oeil painting is just for fun!
