Overview

This treasure trove of decorating inspiration showcases coastal homes from the shores of New England down to Key West and the Caribbean. It explores the unique design of seaside homes along the rugged coastline of the Pacific Northwest down to the sunny beaches of Southern California, letting readers experience how the architectural vernacular of a region influences the design of its homes.

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.

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.
