Summer appears to be sticking around a little longer here in Ottawa with temperatures reaching 40 tomorrow. FINE BY ME! In the meantime I am trying to enjoy every moment I can outdoors…and then I came across this beach house in Malibu and was blown away by how beautiful it is inside and out. I would give anything to be able to enjoy a climate like that year round and be so close to the ocean. By Ignacio Rodriguez Architects.
Polar opposites of the previous home, this beach house is ultra-modern where the other was traditional. Somewhat OTT in its sheer expanse of space, I appreciate that the interior has earthy, natural elements to remind you of the location, with gorgeous views of the Atlantic ocean.

This is everything a luxurious beach house should be. Located on the dunes of East Hampton, this shingle style beach house is nothing but neutral and perfect for ocean-side living, with striking views of the Atlantic Ocean and Wainscott Pond. Off white, some more off white and then just a bit more off white, the spaces evoke a tranquil energy with a casual, natural vibe. Architecture and landscape design by Sawyer | Berson.

There’s something subliminal going on with my posts so far this week. Beach houses and holiday rental accommodation, accommodation and houses by the sea. Perhaps I need some time off? A holiday in a beach house? Or perhaps it’s just where the interwebs have taken me this week. Like this beautiful home at Onetangi Beach by New Zealand design firm Sumich Chaplin Architects. Open the doors and drink in that view.

For all those mid century aficionados out there sometimes a dream can come true. You may never get to own a classic 60s beach shack on Cape Cod but you can rent it for a week. Hatch Cottage, an experimental house designed by Jack Hall. An almost untouched time capsule with panoramic water views and modernist simplicity. (Perhaps some of the photos could have been styled better but that’s a minor quibble if you have a major crush on modernism.) Via The Modern House.
