Classic Coastal Home

Classic Coastal Home. Inspiring Coastal Home. #CoastalHome #CoastalInteriors #Interiors #Coastal


This, once a Coastal Living Idea House,  is a home that displays a unique blend of architectural innovation and classic style. The house is sited to capture views of Narragansett Bay, in Portsmouth, RI; embracing its site with all rooms pointed at the sea.

The classic shingle style incorporates technological advances to make it unabashedly modern. Due to publishing concerns, the designers worked closely with the owner to complete this home in 6 months from start of excavation in 2006.

With 5,300 sq ft, this classic coastal home has exquisite carpentry and millwork features that surely will inspire you. I hope you enjoy!

 Once again we find a room that is casual, but well-designed. My favorite thing here is that balcony that opens to expansive ocean views.

This is why I love coastal homes… they’re a celebration of summer! Their interiors are always bright and alive. Nothing is too serious or too formal… just the way I like to live!

I hope you had a fantastic time here! I am feeling incredibly happy and veryyyyyy anxious because my sister is having her baby today and I can’t wait to hear from her! :-)

We will talk again tomorrow!
