Family Reunion Beach House


It’s FREEZING here (well, as far as Florida weather goes) and as much as I love the cold weather and getting to break out all my cool winter stuff, I’m kinda over it at this point. I’ve been craving warm weather and flip flops and ocean breezes and all that.

So, I can’t stop thinking about this beautiful home. It was featured in Coastal Living Magazine as the 2002 Idea House and it’s definitely one of my favorites. I know I’ve featured the home before but I was finally able to convert some pics I had from bitmap to jpeg so I’m finally able to share more of them with you.

Here’s a shot of the front of the house as seen from the road. Remember this house was built on Bald Head Island, NC and actually was featured as a rental property at one point though I think it is now privately owned.

I think this shot of the foyer is my favorite. As previously mentioned, I love porthole windows and I just love how this one is featured as you go up the staircase.

This shot of the living room shows the great expanse of windows facing the ocean and I love the color scheme. I especially love the couch where they used a silk fabric that looks like burlap (very nautical) but very soft and comfortable.

Take a look at that kitchen! I’m sure that some of y’all either love or hate the blue subway tiles … but I’m in love. I think they provide a great accent and bring the outdoors in.

The upstairs bedroom has that wonderful wainscoting and features a beautiful Tommy Bahama – Island Tropics – Lexington bed that I just adore.

Here, in the downstairs bedroom I love how they’ve used the window area to create an alcove for the bed which makes the room that much more intimate.

I just wanted to share those photos with you today to help brighten your weekend a bit … it definitely brightens mine to day dream about this beautiful home on the ocean … someone want to buy it for me? 😉

  1. LOVE IT! We are sitting in snow so I’m right there with you in dreaming of warm, sandy beaches.

    I am excited about this year’s YMCA Dream House that I help design each year. It’s going to be a lake house on the shores of beautiful Lake Erie. I’m hoping we get to do a house that looks like this one – just smaller and in Ohio ;o)
