Every part of this house is clean, crisp and has the feeling of a chic escape.

Nothing adds a casual, put-your-sandy-feet-up feel quite like a slipcover. It makes for easy clean up at the end of the season too!

This sleek countertop is reminiscent of the sand outside the door. A recessed sink makes cleaning a breeze–and entertaining a cinch!

Open shelving lends to the perfectly undone vibe of the beach house. Earth tones are a perfect fit.

Wood paneling is a necessity for a beach house! It juxtaposes beautifully with this fabulous tub and creates a totally custom look.

An outdoor shower is the perfect finishing touch for this incredible home. And the kayak? Icing on the cake! With Spring Break right around the corner, do you have plans?
