Rooms to Inspire by the Sea …by Annie Kelly, Tim Street-Porter
This is a gorgeous book full of gorgeous beach houses!
‘Freed from the frenetic pace of daily life, a beach house is a place to express your playful, adventurous side: white floorboards replace thick carpets, rooms are accented with jaunty nautical touches, and the palette ranges from pastel tones to shots of vivid color.
An unprecedented tour of breathtaking beach community and waterfront properties in idyllic settings such as Southern California, Florida, the Hamptons, and Puerto Vallarta is showcased in this alluring volume. The select houses-ranging from casual weekend retreats and charming cottages to luxurious family compounds-are the personal homes of decorators and tastemakers such as Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan, Juan Montoya, Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, Matthew Rolston, Linda Garland, and Michael Bruno.
This beautifully photographed and inspirational book encourages one to explore the design opportunities available at the beach with flair.’
