Located on the shores of Port O Connor, TX, this beach house by Heather Scott Home & Design is a place you won’t forget. Make sure to pin your favorite coastal interior design ideas and keep reading to learn about the many details shared by this talented team:
“When our longtime clients purchased a vacation home along the Texas coast, they wanted their home, particularly the kitchen, to have an inviting and memorable feel with punchy colors that fit the playful nature of the summer beach locale. As one of the anchors of this coastal home, the kitchen’s mix of watercolor hues, organic elements, and other beach house essentials helped define the design of this dynamite beach home kitchen. Ingredients like an eye-catching backsplash with a complementary painted island, woven accents, and lots of white create a combination that feels elegant while still casual enough to suit its coastal setting.
Our goal for this beach house kitchen was for it be as stylish and functional as it was practical for the locale. With concerns from flooding and everyday wear and tear from salt water and sand, we had to make sure everything in the home was beach-friendly and durable. After selecting a light wood flooring, we decided it was in the best interest of the client to switch to a luxury vinyl plank flooring option with the same look, but that offered so much more peace of mind in case of any weather emergency. With the pool area located directly beyond the kitchen, hardwood floors would’ve been less than forgiving on wet feet. It looks like real wood, but in a beach house, it’s a lot more practical. Another influential design element in this kitchen is the striking glass mosaic tile that is equal parts beachy and bright. It also was a key to solving the design puzzle of this space. It is playful yet sophisticated, and it ended up informing not only the color palette but the overall aesthetic of the home. With its striking geometric pattern, subtle sheen, and spectrum of watery blues, the glass mosaic backsplash tile reads more like a work of art than a surface material. Extending the tiled backsplash to the ceiling allowed for the architectural range hood to really pop; translating its distinct blue hue to the kitchen island also helped the whole room flow. The uniformly dressed cabinets, walls, and ceilings in a warmer white hue takes advantage of the kitchen’s ample natural light and makes the room feel even brighter. While soaring ceilings were among the kitchen’s most attractive assets, the height coupled with the sparkling backsplash and all-white cabinetry called for something more grounding. Additionally for an appropriately organic touch, a trio of oversize woven light fixtures add warmth while also being substantial enough to really make a statement in the space. When it comes to the kitchen’s barstools, a stylish quartet draws the eye with a frame clad in woven nylon rope (a nod to the husband’s love of fishing). The crisscross pattern reflects the geometric motif in the backsplash, while the natural materials pay homage to the casual, coastal setting.”

“Our client’s master bedroom needed to have a soothing simplicity that highlighted the room’s natural light, dramatic vaulted ceilings, and sprawling water views. The bedroom has the perfect combination of restful and rejuvenating qualities, thanks to its soothing neutrals and fiery splash of bright pinks and coastal textures.
The stately platform bed in a casual linen fabric is dressed up with a splash of custom hot pink pillow accents to pep up the sophisticated bedroom retreat. To add texture to the space, a pair of driftwood sticks above the nightstands also pay homage to the locale of the beachside home. In front of the window nook, a pair of custom spindle chairs in a hot pink performance fabric offer the homeowners another seating area to relax and recharge while enjoying their scenic water views. The home’s interiors are layered with sophisticated choices that reflect the homeowners’ tastes, while also staying cognizant of the casual temperament of the beachside home. The bedroom in particular has a comfortable “lived in” feeling and a warm familiarity for the couple to rest and recharge in while vacationing along the coast.” – Heather Scott Home & Design.

An oversized chandelier with loosely draped beads play up the casual yet glamorous feel of this space. It also adds the perfect centerpiece to the room.” – Heather Scott Home & Design.

“Our design team was brought in the early planning stages so that we could provide guidance for all of the building selections. This of course included selecting all of the bathroom details like plumbing fixtures, tile, lighting, etc. For this guest bathroom, we took a step on the wild side with a gorgeous palm leaf wallpaper in bright green and blue, which really helped set the tone for the guest suite. The wallpaper paired with satin brass fixtures elevates the look of the bathroom. Classic white subway tile with a wavy/irregular look surrounds the shower walls and small marble hex shaped tile dresses the floor timelessly. To make the bathroom even more bold, the vanity cabinet is painted in a refreshing kiwi color. The vanity mirror is framed with a faux bone tile detail for added texture and interest. Gold bamboo sconces dress up the space even more. The bathroom is a jewel- box offering guests a place to escape and vacation.“
