Florida Beach House Style

Living and working the amazing gulf coast area that we do, we have seen our fair share of quintessential beach homes over the years. Ultimately your home will always reflect your personal style, but we have found that there are always some common features that can be found in a beach lover’s home. Here’s a peek at some of the key aesthetics you can expect to find in your future beach house in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. There may even be some looks that inspire you to make a change in your current home.

COLOR

A true beach-inspired home can mean different things to different people, but you can bet that you’ll find plenty of whites and blues throughout. Some may go for a more muted palette – the sophisticated side to beach-house living. Others may opt for adding blue tones throughout to reflect the gulf itself. *Photo credit – Mike Kelley Photography*

OUTSIDE

Having a fun place to play outside is key – from a pool area to the best BBQ hangout in the neighborhood, the exterior is just as important (if not more!) as the interior of your beach house. *Photo Credit – Tria Glovan*

FURNITURE

From wicker to white, you’ll find that the beach lifestyle exudes simplicity and ease. White slipcovers not only flow with the color scheme, but can also be easily washed – perfect for the occasional sandy smudge. *Photo Credit – Blackband Design*

Distressed furniture and glass accents are also the perfect pairing for this laid back look. Both go seamlessly with the textures of the beach.

FINISHING TOUCHES

Forget the fussy window treatments and take advantage of the natural light. Use your beach view as your “artwork”. Simple roman shades provide plenty of coverage, but why bother when you can enjoy a crisp white molding and trim with noting to obstruct your view of the water?
