A brand new week is starting and how about starting it by seeing a new beach house with coastal interiors designed by Old Seagrove Homes? Trust me, you won’t come out of here disappointed!
If you’ve read this blog for quite some time now you know how much I love coastal interiors and how often I share them here. Located on a sought-after location, Seagrove Beach, Florida, this home carries a subtle coastal motif, mixing nautical decor with transitional elements. The house has 5 beds, 7 baths, approximately 4,626 square feet, and was built in 2014.
There are so many stunning spaces and great interior ideas to be inspired by, but I have to admit that my favorite room is the kitchen. I love white kitchens, but this kitchen comes to show us that a kitchen doesn’t have to be white to take our breath away. This home features a kitchen that beautifully mixes rustic and polished elements with Cypress cabinets and backsplash. The wood was kept natural and the designers decided only to seal it to keep it protected.
This beach house is bright, happy and has a monochromatic color scheme that will stand the test of time and stay in your memory for some time. Take a quiet break and dream away…
The kitchen by the designer: “One of my favorite gathering spots is the kitchen. In our home, it’s always the center of activity. Our first consideration was to give the space a ton of natural light. So, we put windows to either side of the range as well as three windows above the kitchen sink. The whole space is awash in sunlight and feels so airy. The kitchen design incorporated elements such as inset cabinets, Bianco Macaubus Quartzite, a cypress island, curved kitchen hood, floating shelves with inset lights and a beautifully designed cypress cabinet for extra storage. Perhaps the most striking element is the cypress feature wall behind the sink. Alex (her husband and builder) handpicked each piece for it’s color and texture. The polished chrome pendants and the sconces above the sink, top everything off as the perfect polished complements”.
The cypress wall in this kitchen came out perfect, and the custom floating shelves are simple yet stunning. If you look closely you can see lighting built right into the bottom of each one!
The farmhouse sink is Rohl 36″.
Faucet can be found here.
So, how about we take a break from white kitchens and go with natural wood for instance? I am loving this kitchen with natural Cypress cabinetry. The designer didn’t apply any stain on them. She only sealed to protect the wood.
Built with Care
The cabinets were custom built on site. Alex (the builder/designer) hand selected the cypress from the mill and oversees all of the log cutting to find this gorgeous black pecky cypress.
The countertops are Bianco Macaubus Quartzite. The quartzite is so great! Quartzite looks like marble and wears better than granite!
I love how rustic and modern this kitchen is! The cypress wall and accents are the perfect counterpoints to the sleek quartzite and lantern pendants!
The pendants are Regina Andrew.
The range is Thermador.
The breakfast nook features an U-shaped built in bench, surrounded by a wall of windows. The designer built a custom pedestal table and added sconces between the windows to add a special touch. A classic navy color scheme completes the look.
Sconces are Thomas O’Brien Bryant Sconces.
The living room features a coffered ceiling accented with a fan over slipcovered furniture as well as a round glass and brass coffee table atop a navy and white rug.
The rug is Serena & Lily Charing Cross Rug.
The living room features a tabby shell stucco fireplace. Isn’t it a beautiful idea?
Besides using tabby shell stucco, this fireplace also features a reclaimed cypress lumber as mantel.
Main Floor Paint Color
The paint color is “Benjamin Moore Winds Breath OC-24″.
Home is Where the Heart is
This is what the designer has to say about this home: “Alex and I designed this home from the ground up. We wanted it to be traditionally classic, but also to be filled with the charm and character of Seagrove Beach. Because this home was built with a large family in mind (kids, cousins, grandparents, friends…) we made sure to incorporate plenty of entertaining and gathering spots.”
The framed sea fans are from Horchow.
Hardwood Floors: The floors are red oak. The designers got them locally. They’re wire brushed and stained in a multi-step process.
In this entry, the designers made a pecky cypress, antiqued, wall mirror. It absolutely completes this space!!!
The staircase, leading to the bedrooms, feature a driftwood sphere pendant.
This guest bedroom is inviting and timeless. I love the soothing color palette.
The bunk room by the designer: “This bunk room was part of a much larger space. We designed and built these great bunks with four twin beds. I wanted it to be a space that would be comfortable for all ages and both boys and girls alike. A navy and white color scheme is both classic and crisp. The fun Otomi embroidered pillows add that fun pop of color on a sea blue cabana stripe.”
The designers added this cute sitting area by the windows for additional sitting. It also serves as a nice spot for books and games. Because this room is on the second floor and partially in the roof line, they were able to build built-in closets for extra luggage, hanging clothes and shoes- a real rarity for most bunk rooms.
The chairs are from Serena & Lily. Books are from Barnes and Noble.
Comfy & Coastal
A slipcovered sleeper sofa was added for even more sleeping spots. Isn’t it adorable? I’m loving these pillows!
Pale Blue Guest Bedroom
Gorgeous guest bedroom with pale blue cypress wall and gold sconces.
Wall sconces are from Horchow.
This guest bathroom features a footed dual vanity topped with grey and white marble countertop. I am loving the gold arch mirrors and the arched shower.
Isn’t this sitting area breathtaking? An arched doorway leading to the master bedroom is flanked by built-in bookcases with distressed plank boards.
Beautiful bookcase with coastal decor.
The master bedroom also features an espresso stained vaulted ceiling with Cypress wood beams over a bed facing a flatscreen TV.
Table is Wisteria Rustic Trestle Console Table.
The master bedroom paint color is Farrow and Ball Light Gray.
This bright and timeless master bathroom features a vaulted plank ceiling lined with rustic wood beams and a French candle chandelier illuminating a long seamless glass shower with marble wall tiles and marble diamond pattern shower floor.
The custom footed dual vanity is topped with grey and white marble countertop with his and hers sink. Notice the curved mirrored sconces.
Master Bedroom Bar
This bar is located just off the master bedroom and features mirrored upper cabinets and white lower cabinets with a glass front beverage fridge. Handy!
This backyard is perfect for a beach house! Low maintenance and with a pool!
Gorgeous curved in-ground pool. This design is ideal for a narrow backyard.
Florida Beach House
This beach house is stunning inside and out! Notice the tower view.
Inspiring architectural details.
The tower is a fun spot! You can see the whole coast from up here.
Wouldn’t you love to spend an afternoon admiring the ocean and feeling its breeze?
We’re Going to the Beach
Forget where you are… right now you’re at this beach. You’re barefoot and you’re feeling the warm sand and hearing the calm waves…
Take a deep breath and start this week in peace.

How wonderful it is to have you here today! We’re so blessed for receiving the gift of being alive, being healthy and for giving the opportunity to take a minute of our time to relax, to dream and to feel inspired. Aren’t we lucky? We sure are!
Did you guys have a good weekend? My weekend was really great. My grandfather’s 96th birthday was a blast! He was feeling good and had more than 20 close family members with him. Unfortunately I couldn’t go since he lives in Brazil, but I saw many pictures and talked to him for a long time. He wanted to wear a shirt I sent to him not long ago and that made my day. 🙂
The kids were great this weekend also! My daughter scored 6 goals on a hockey game, and we’re all very proud of her!
The only thing that was not very good during this weekend was my food choices! We were busy and we mostly ate fast food and I so regret it. It’s funny to see how our body changes with time. In my 20’s I could eat a Big Mac and be completely fine… I could even add a “Sunday” to the “mix”. Now, I can’t eat any kind of fast food without feeling completely gross-out afterwards. Do you guys feel the same way? I think good part of it is the fact that I am gluten intolerant and anything can upset my stomach. I guess I have to work a little harder this week on our meals. I know it’s not easy, but nothing compares to home cooked meals, right?
Oh, let me know if you guys have any good, easy and fast dinner ideas. I will be busy again this week but I want to make sure we ate at home. So, please share them with me. Any idea is welcome! 🙂
Okay, everyone… I better go now but we’ll talk again tomorrow.
Big hugs to all and Big Blessings! We so deserve that!
