Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


A shingle-style beach house is always so appealing and it gets my attention right away, especially when the house is beautiful like this one. This home was recently named to Ocean Homes magazine’s 2011 ‘Top 25 Homes Available for Sale” and you probably will agree with it after you see the interior.

Located on Kiawah Islands, this house was designed by Christopher Rose Architects LLP. With lower energy and water bills and reduced greenhouse gas emissions, this is truly a green home and the first Silver LEED (Leadership Energy and Environmental Design) certified one on Kiawah.

Not only is the house spectacular, but its location also is. Enjoy the beach through the private boardwalk that offers direct access to the beach. There are 8 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 7363 sq Ft, gorgeous formal rooms and a backyard with a very special view and delightful pool.

I hope you feel inspired by this home.


Beautiful foyer with a grand circular staircase and dramatic light fixture.

Family Room

This is just perfect for a beach house! I adore the blue and white.

Dining Room

I really like the simplicity of this room. It feels breezy and light.


Space! Lots of storage and I like those with the pendants.

Master Bedroom

Everything feels really relaxed in this house, including the master bedroom.

Sitting Area

The sitting area is comfy and it offers ocean views, also I really like the heart pine flooring.


Gorgeous architecture! This is to inspire.

Neutral Guest Bedroom

This bed brings some formality to this room.


Neutral colors and fabrics make this bedroom feel very calming.

Views Bedroom

This bedroom feels too empty for my taste but I love the ocean views.

Cozy Bedroom

This is a great example of a very cozy bedroom that feels incredibly charming and welcoming.

Lucky Little Ones Bedroom

I fell in love with yellow after I saw this bedroom. I never really pay much attention to this color, but it works so perfectly in kids’ rooms. The combination of creamy walls, light furniture and upholstered chairs are pure perfection and not too hard to get the same look in our own home.

Cottage-y Bedroom

I want this guest bedroom in my house! Isn’t it great? Every single detail here compliments the next.

Black & White Bedroom

Great ideas for black & white lovers! I really like the light gray walls. The bed and chairs are just fantastic!


This room was done right! Totally relaxed, how a sunroom should be and feel.


Nice place to enjoy your meals al fresco.

Vamos a la Playa!

A short walk to “paradise”.

Guest House

The guest house is also very charming.

The Right Path

The pathway to the beach and the beautiful views.


Nice views from the pool.


The pool area has the perfect connection with its natural surroundings.

Home Sweet Shingled Home

Shingled homes belong to the beach.

I can’t wait to hear your thought on this house!

How your day is going so far? I’m going to be a bit busy today. We’re having an ultrasound every week now and also seeing my doctor after that. We just want to make sure my baby is gaining the right amount of weight. Everything is perfect, thank God and it’s always amazing seeing my little guy. So, today we’re going to see him once again and I’m very excited for that. We’re also almost ready for his arrival. Now all I really have to do is relax more (if I can!) and wait. It’s amazing that we’ll meet him so soon. So, prayers for an “easy” and fast labor are very welcome! 🙂

Have a great day, my dear friends!

    So excited for you that your baby will be here soon! Prayers are definitely being sent for you!!

    I’ll take the cottage guest bedroom with the master bathroom, please. I also really love the spacious, yet simple dining room. And, of course, the architecture and grounds are amazing. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Have a great day!!

    Luciane since I’m a new follower I didn’t know you were expecting, how wonderful for you and your family!

    As for these homes they look like places from New England. That first home is gorgeous love how simple but elegant it looks. Enjoy your day and take care of yourself and your baby boy!

    Lovethe house itself, loads of curb appeal and love how high it is and the way its elevated.
    BUT I do not like those mint green walls at all, and am not very impressed with the furnishings…this could be a real showstopper but needs some livening up, the kitchen is pretty but lacks any real appeal or warmth. Lots of potential and certainly a beautiful home. Hope you are feeling well sweetie!

    Sending you HUGE prayers for an easy, safe and fast delivery Luciane… I think about you each day and am looking forward to the day Matthew joins the rest of us!

    And this house. Wow, it’s so beautiful. I love the last photo so much. The light shining through the windows is so welcoming, and it just makes this house that much more beautiful. If I could make one change it would be to liven up the colours in the bedroom just a smidge. The rooms are gorgeous, for sure, but they feel a little too neutral compared to some of the other rooms in the home. But would I say no to this one? No way!

    I hope your day goes well and that you do find time to relax a little bit.

    This is a fabulous house in a beautiful location. I love all the blue in the interiors…very suitable for a location such as this.

    I love this one Luciane! So many beautiful rooms. The picture of the family room has totally convinced me to go with a blue+white theme for my sitting room… but I know you’ll go and show me something completely different and equally gorgeous tomorrow… and then I can’t decide!!!
    Relax if you can Luciane xx
