Our goal for the design of this beach home’s interiors was to create a refuge from the all-too-predictable Northwest weather. We used the natural hues of our environment for inspiration in décor: nature-inspired tones infused with splashes of welcome color. This cheerful palette, when combined with unique choices of furnishings that showcase natural materials, helps create a perfect weekend getaway…rain or shine. The warmth of the dark bamboo flooring helps ground the space and hides a multitude of dirt and sand. The fireplace was previously an old yellow brick with mauve-tinted mortar, but we switched all that out for simple and modern porcelain tile on the bottom half, while the top half is smooth, hand-sanded plaster.
