Overview

Step inside these homes to see how the coastal way of life dictates the décor-from thoughtfully designed porches that are an extension of the home, punches of citrus green and seaglass blue in a whimsical room for children, to kitchens and living rooms that are casual gathering places in the truest sense. Get ideas for infusing your own home with a similar laid-back sense of style. See how simple updates like the choice of paint color or lighting can truly make a room, and gather ideas for your own redo with our inspiring makeovers.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The editors of Coastal Living magazine briefly review decorative styles of New England, the South, Key West, Southern California, and the Pacific Northwest. The bulk of the book shows how the various styles of beach decor have been incorporated into kitchens, dining and living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, and porches. Accompanying the over 400 color photographs is brief advice from designers on color, decorative accessories, and materials. In addition, five homes are featured in before-and-after photographs. Readers desiring a different approach to interior decorating and those living on the coasts will find plenty of ideas here.
