The shore… It’s a phrase we don’t use enough. I’m going to the shore. We’re spending the weekend at the shore. Sigh…
But when your home is as stunning as this one, “beach” or “coast” just doesn’t cut it anymore. You’re officially summering at the shore.
We don’t know about you, but we’re pretty excited to get spend our Wednesday at the shore ogling the work of the inspired (and inspiring!) Austin Patterson Disston Architects.
(And Mother Nature, of course!)
This is the kind of living room where we could really live. It’s all lovely, but we have a soft spot for those crystal obelisks!
Stunning. Stunning. Stunning. This room is simple and classic, but totally decadent all the same. Don’t you just love that exposed bulb? It’s the perfect touch!
There’s eating and then there’s dining. And, when you get right down to it, life’s too short for rushed takeout over the kitchen island. What a gorgeous spot for fresh catch and catching a sunset!
A hint of something fresh only adds to the beauty of the architecture in this room.
We know without even finishing the tour that we would absolutely live in this sunny spot. The bright light, the view, a little bit of raw wood, a little bit of paint… Top it off with a couple of cozy chairs and it’s too dreamy for words!
These steel and glass doors are an ideal complement to this delicious kitchen.
Oh. Wait… Did you think those cabinets were the best part? Think again! When you’ve got a view like that you’re crazy not to flaunt it! Wow!! Yards of white marble are even better with the sun reflecting off of them!
This is a perfect, warm paint color that corresponds so nicely with these gorgeous wood floors. These add so much character and just the right amount of age.
Balconies are one of the best bedroom ideas we know of. I can picture myself sipping tea in my bathrobe, taking in the view…
There’s nothing better than an all-white bathroom…
Except, of course, an all-white bathroom with a to-die-for soaking tub and an even better view!
Of course, whether you’re at the beach, the coast or the shore, porches and patios are the must-have, most-loved rooms. From dining to lounging to fabulous entertaining, we think this patio achieves the very difficult task at being as fabulous as this house’s interior.
Thanks to all of you for being a part of this home tour and to Austin Patterson Disston Architects for sharing one of the gems in their vast portfolio. It was so much fun and made a regular Wednesday feel like, well, a weekend at the shore! We hope you’ll come visit again!
