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.
You may be able to get away with anything in Malibu, but what this home lacks for in typical Malibu OTT style or modern to the extreme is made up for in retrolicious funk. I would prefer this any day, anywhere. The Archers making spaces deliciously good once again.
I just love Cortney Bishop and her creative, eclectic, edgy style. We have featured several of her projects and each time I gasp in delight. Yes, YES, YAAASSSS!!! This beach cottage is another stunner. Bright white walls and ceiling to create a simple, bright backdrop to funky furnishings and graphic patterned curtains and pillows. The art in the living room could not be more perfect in this setting. What a fantastic little cottage!
