Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


For me, there isn’t a better place to be than by the ocean and it gets even better if the house is built and designed by Marnie Oursler of Marnie Custom Homes. She really knows how to design beach houses and this new beach house tour is here to prove just that.

This 7,600-square-foot modern coastal home is located oceanfront in Bethany Beach, DE. Inspired by modern California design, the four story beach house fits right in along the Delaware coast thanks to its more old fashioned pointed roofline. To capture every ounce of ocean view, the back of the home features wall to wall windows that leads to an additional 1,400 sq feet of deck space. Furnishings from Restoration Hardware complete the home’s clean yet cozy aesthetic. If you love modern coastal design, this home will leave you dreaming of beach house living.

“The homeowner wanted a crisp modern white, offset with black windows so we chose weather resistant James Hardie Cedar Shake and Board & Batten siding in Arctic White that gives the appearance of cedar without the maintenance. Steel framing was key in this build to ensure it withstands the wind and waterfront conditions.”

Blue Horizon

Awww… the ocean!!! My beloved grandmother used to say that the ocean clears all the “bad energy” and frees our soul, and I feel this way every time I look at the waves and the blue horizon… I hope this post brings this same inner peace and that you can feel lighter, more relaxed and happier.


As you enter the home you are immediately welcomed by a view of the ocean.

All Furniture/Lighting is from Restoration Hardware – I’m linking similar products (and more affordable options) for your shopping convenience.

“With the ocean as the backdrop, Marnie wanted to create a light and airy kitchen large enough to accommodate family and friends. To create this modern coastal kitchen, Marnie used a mix of countertop materials to break up the all white kitchen while also creating multiple seating areas. She designed two 12.5-foot-long islands with three different countertop materials—a four-inch-thick walnut countertop provides a seating area for six and mimics a kitchen table, while the Atlas Plan Boost Smoke countertop creates an additional seating area for four. It gives the look of concrete but it’s actually porcelain which she chose for it’s durability. Finally, Atlas Plan’s Calacatta Extra Porcelain slab was chosen for the remainder of the countertop, backsplash and sides of the islands for a modern sophisticated look that mimics the look of marble. Complete with two refrigerators, multiple freezers and two Galley Sinks. This kitchen is an entertainers dream.”
