Sometimes all you need to do is to look outside to know how to decorate your home. This is exactly what the homeowners of this brand new Tequesta, Florida beach house did. As soon as the couple purchased this ocean-inspired home, they contacted the interior designer Jackie Armour from JMA Interior Design to transform their vacation home. The house, designed by architect Scott Disher of Architectural Studio and built by Joseph Pease, had really good bones but it was in need of some personal touches.
The designer captured the relaxed, elegant essence of Florida through its coastal interiors by adding a mix of vibrant blues and neutral elements – a classic color scheme that can work especially with stunning water views as this home exudes.
Take a look and let this place relax you…
Florida Beach House with Classic Coastal Interiors
The custom front door with herringbone brick patio is welcoming and grand at the same time.
In the foyer, artworks from Wendover Art Group float above Century Furniture chests from Designers Buying Group.
According to Luxe magazine, when it was time for the designer to design the living room, the rich tone of the wood flooring provided the ideal contrast for attention to be placed on the living room fireplace—a tour de force featuring an overmantel that the builder had studded with seashells during the home’s construction. “I mimicked the effect of the water washing over the shore,” he says. This paved the way for Armour to infuse the room with coastal inspirations that further supported the focal point. “Instead of going with a stronger palette here, we used texture and softer colors to allow the fireplace to stand out,” Armour says of the room’s sandy hues. “The area rug is a beautiful, nubby wool-and-sisal combination, and the wool-and-linen fabric on the sofa has an almost tweed-like feel. As a reference to the riverside location, one of the accent pillows has actual pieces of driftwood sewn on as appliques.”
A rug from The Natural Carpet Company grounds the entire space. Hickory White benches in Kravet stripes is set around an Oomph coffee table. A Visual Comfort chandelier completes the room.
Sofa is by Lee Industries.
Coffee Table Decor
Neutral and natural decor brings some charm to the coffee table.
A pair of sleek Lee Industries armchairs work beautifully against the coastal motif of this room.
This chic dining room features Hickory White side chairs in a Romo textile, a Somerset Bay Home dining table and Duralee fabric dresses the Lee Industries head chair.
Living Room Decor
Against a Phillip Jeffries wallcovering, a mirror from Pineapples, Palms, Etc. anchors the dining room, while seafoam-hued glass lamps reference the water outside. Underneath the setting is a cabinet from Asian Accents of Palm Beach.
Blue and White Kitchen
In this blue and white kitchen, Lee Industries stools surround the Carrara marble island top. Gorgeous Roman shades in Duralee fabric brings softness to the windows. The cabinet and the Restoration Hardware pendants already existed in the home.
This ocean-inspired family room blends indoor and outdoor spaces together and I love that!
The accent pillows on the Lee Industries sofa sport solids and patterns by China Seas. River views can be enjoyed through windows and sliding glass doors from PGT Industries, accented with Duralee drapery fabric and Samuel & Sons trim. The rug is from Flor Source.

Cottage Guest Bedroom
This sweet cottage guest bedroom is charming and carries a vintage feel.
A bevy of furnishings in the master suite was acquired through Designers Buying Group: the Pearson bed and chaise, Somerset Bay Home bedside tables, Hickory White ottomans, and a Visual Comfort chandelier. A Kravet wallcovering and a mirror by Global Views lend a neutral backdrop; Raoul Textiles’ shams and a Duralee print on the ottomans bestow shades of blue.
