Renovated Beach House with Rustic Coastal Interiors

Beach Cottage. Beach Cottage Front Porch. Traditional Beach Cottage with front porch. #BeachCottage #Porch #FrontPorch #TraditionalBeachCottage
 
The complete renovation of this beach house was meticulously done by Caroline Lechaux from OutinDesign. This Beach Haven, NJ cottage is the culmination of Caroline’s work as it successfully marries her French and American coastal roots (Brittany, France and Norfolk, Virginia) and achieves an architectural meshing of the indoors and the outdoors. The house reflects her two cultures while being firmly anchored to its locality.

Take a look at this beach house and I am sure this home will refresh your mind about the rustic coastal style. You can’t help but feel inspired!

Let me know your thoughts on this one!

This neutral coastal living room features a custom-made console table with sea glass. Here the designer explains how she designed the console table: “This console was made from two reclaimed wood planters that I filled with sand from the beach, then laid with beach glass found at Barnegut Light House Beach at the top of Long Beach Island. I covered the two planters with a piece of tempered glass to make a console.”

It feels so good to be here today and share this new post with you all! How are you feeling?

I spent my weekend and yesterday finalizing a project for a client and I am very happy with the results… take look at what she wrote to me this morning after seeing the project:

 
 

“Luciane, 

Absolutely beautiful!  There is so much to look at and lots of decisions to make. All the options are so light and lovely, easy on the eye, while at the same time have a finished elegant look. 
(…)
I am so impressed with your hard work.  The work and details you put into the email project design alone is very impressive, both with the kitchen project and this one. You choose things that I love and when I see something that stops my breathing, I know that is the choice.  It happened with many of the items: couches, chairs, fabrics, lights, mirrors etc.
I can’t imagine ever designing a home without your expertise!  Thank you.  Thank you.
(…)
You have left me with a big smile on my face.  What a great way to start the day!  Thank you!!!!!!”
 _ B. A. from California.

 
 

It makes me so happy to see my client feeling this way about the project. I won’t lie, I am a perfectionist when it comes to my work. I take pride on the carefully choices I make and I immensely value my clients’ trust. Nothing makes me happier than seeing that my work is making someone living a littler better and finally finding their true personality expressed in their homes.

I just thought of sharing a bit of my day with you guys and how happy I am right now. :)
I hope you have a lovely day, filled with sunshine and good surprises!
We’ll talk again tomorrow!

with Love,
