Rustic beach house

Posted on Thu, 29 Jul 2021 by midcenturyjo

I remember seeing this house many many years ago. It’s a beach cabin in East Sussex by Bartlett Coote. It was the standard bearer for the pale and interesting vintage movement. Granny chic meets shabby chic meets reuse and recycle. Flashy and trashy were an anathema. It was all about slow living and a down to earth aesthetic. Fast forward a decade if not a bit more and it’s as interesting and inspiring today as it was back then AND it seems it’s more than survived the test of time. Australians LOVE a beach shack and it seems the Brits do too. This one is rich with the promise of easy summer days filled with family and friends. For sale here via The Modern House.

Serenity now! These spaces by Jaime Zehner of JZ Interior Designs are so relaxing and serene. California casual is her scene and I’m digging it. A bit Scanid, rustic, beachy…. perfect for warm weather living.

This modern beach house in East Hampton is tons of fun. Loaded with tropical colours and wallpaper, it is coastal vacationing with a chic, graphic twist. Such uplifting energy in these spaces. Designed by Ghislaine Viñas. (Photos: Jaime Viñas & Mick Hales)

Stylish by the sea

Not too many photos but more than enough to let me know that this Jupiter Island house by architect firm Thomas Melhorn with interiors by Betsy Brown is not your ordinary beachside home. Stylish and sophisticated yet relaxed and welcoming. Just right for getaways or even better for a forever home.

Sophisticated seaside living

Posted on Wed, 12 May 2021 by midcenturyjo

“With incredible views towards the southern wild ocean and northern views to the enclosed and stunning pool lawn and flourishing vegetable garden, we wanted to create an ‘Australian’ villa in the landscape by the sea. Internally, we aspired to creating spaces rather than surface, creating atmosphere rather than rooms; creating both a generosity of spirit and serenity as a background for happy family life.”

As stunning as its rugged setting this sophisticated contemporary beach house is definitely no shack with its expansive views through large glass windows, open plan living and a sheltered oasis of a garden behind. Flinders House by Melbourne-based Susi Leeton.
