Coastal Cool

Coral-hued accents define the sofas and chairs gathered near the fireplace in the great room. Soft shades of blue highlight the custom paneling and complement the warm hickory floors. A separate seating area seems almost nestled under a large oak with the intra-coastal waterway just beyond its branches.

Oyster shells dangle from the custom chandelier that casts an inviting glow in the dining room.

Grand, yet inviting, the coffered ceiling in the foyer seems to float above the wrought iron railing. A whimsical nautilus shell helps to capture a fun and casual look to help welcome guests.

Perimeter cabinets in tones of ivory frame the light mocha finish of the kitchen island. A travertine backsplash and floor keep the look light and relaxed.


Muted colors are used in this guest suite and mingle with the rattan and pine furnishings to create a cool, coastal ambience.


The broad barrel-vault ceiling of the master bedroom is painted a rich blue and partners nicely with sandy tones of the walls and silk striped drapery. With a touch of a button, remote-control black-out shades descend from behind the roman valances to ensure a good night’s sleep.


Generous windows enable everyone to enjoy views of the pool, dock and boats from the comfort of a cushy sofa, swivel chairs and mammoth ottoman.


Connecting the dining room with the breakfast nook and kitchen, a curved, paneled ceiling makes this much more than a butler’s pantry!


Marble-chip mosaics are used to depict an under-water theme mural on the outside wall of the master bathroom shower.


As a nod to a porthole found on a ship, the mirror above the chest in the elevator vestibule conveys the coastal theme of the interiors.

  1. Absolutely stunning!
