Notre Maison

Beachside living with a contemporary vibe. A touch of ethnic chic, lots of warm natural materials against clean whites. Crisp and fresh like the sea air. No seaside cottage cliche here. Hand crafted materials, found objects, organic elements. The perfect retreat. Beth Dillard of Notre Maison in Rosemary Beach, Florida.

P.S. Check out her blog too.

This place has every little element that I would like to incorporate in my own home someday! Amazing!

Fan of her work. Apparently her training at Le Cordon Bleu and love for cooking inspire her amazing kitchen designs. I also like how she makes the most out of natural lighting.

Firs thing i notice as i scroll thru these layouts...white.....white...and more...white. Where's the color? I don't mean the accents put in as accents. I mean color. Does this person not realize that real people live in this setting? Real, dirty people.
And who gets to clean this pristine setting, cause i predict a lot of smudges and stains.
Color. Don't be afraid of it.

These are all very nice looking rooms, but very blank and rather inexpressive. The minimalistic, clean-lined look is nice for magazine pics but I think they look unlivable. If I lived in one of these types of homes, I'd add a little personality. Great pics though. Thanks for sharing!

This home's decor has a very calm and soothing appeal to it. I like it.

It is gorgeous! I have no idea how I would keep all that white clean though. \

The bones are beautiful, the furniture is classic. But I'm afraid I like bohemian an colour drenched spaces a lot more than white/blue/neural aesthetic!

I like this layout just like I would like what the runway models wore at a fashion show. For its artistry. It's use of color(though sparse in the design... because of the light the atmosphere provides and the less color the more the light can pour in and bounce off of itself...), pattern, texture and creative style.
You have to take into account all of the contributors to the design. No one goes to an antique car show to scoff and bring up something negative such as poor gas mileage. The cars are there to be beheld.
We are supposed to behold what the artist put together. What they designed and took the time to plan and create.
And I don't mean to say that this design, or any for that matter, is merely just for art and display. Designs like this are plausible in reality. Unlike wearing an extravagant Gucci work of art of an outfit (odd that they would be referred to in the industry as "pieces") to work or driving an antique Chevy as your everyday car- these are things we just don't do.
But do we use pieces like the one above as a template to decorate our homes?
Yes.
Especially if the design and creativity matched your personality or sparked your own creativity.
Someone with this kind of home or that rents out a beachouse at least could really give it a greater sense of beach property.
Or something.
Either way, the clean lines and space created with the white, complemented by the downplay of colors- nothing too loud or sharp.
The use of texture is a lovely touch (hint: the table in the last picture on the right).
So if you didn't like it, it's not because it's bad.
It just didn't suit you.

The house is full of lights from nature, very eco-friendly, and I just like that!
