Sophisticated and achingly cool but relaxed and seemingly effortless. The perfect mix of old and new, sustainable and bespoke. Shelly Craft’s Belongil Beach house by Jase Sullivan.

From the American countryside we are now off to the French seaside at Saint-Jean-de-Luz. This family vacation house by Paris-based Sophie de L’Epine epitomises the laid back sophistication of the French beach style. So evocative of warm breezes, the smell of salt in the air and the hum of insects. There is sand on the floor, towels draped on stylish yet hard working furniture and the promise of an endless, carefree summer.
Relaxed and understated with a colour palette as soft as the sands that surround it. A nod to Scandinavian mid century classics but as unpretensious as a worn wooden table. A complete renovation of a Danish summer house that allows for modern living but reconnects the home with its past. DM Beach House in North Zealand, Denmark by London-based Pernille Lind Studio.

I love the warm, relaxed and uplifting feels this weekend home in Southampton exudes. Without being tongue in cheek beachy, the decor by designer Meg Braff was kept light with tropical pastels and such beautiful patterns throughout.
“Gracing the edge of Port Phillip Bay, this coastal haven exudes a sense of seclusion, comfort and relaxation. Simple forms and restrained materials nod to holiday homes of the past.”
Pared back and beautiful. Soft yet hard. Private yet open. It’s not your typical beach getaway. Sorrento Beach House by Pandolfini Architects.
