We just got back from our last vacation of the summer, and like most migratory Atlantan’s we went to the beach, visiting a much touted master-planned community, Seaside, designed by visionary Andres Duwany, who also designed the community I live in. Although it’s fairly close and only a six-hour drive, I never like to vacation where you see the same people, and Atlantan’s flock there in droves.
Truthfully, I found Seaside charming, and not quite as frenetic as I imagined. I know much has been written about this picturesque coastal town- so I don’t want to go down that same path to coastal chic. But, after spending a week at the beach, I’m feeling inspired to share some of my favorite coastal interiors…

This design is for the Lark Hotel. Of which, should be on everyone’s bucket list. The perfect example of how not to look like a hotel, and more like a coastal retreat. The pattern mix is simply refreshing.

Calming neutrals for miles in a sea of blue. Subtle coastal references such as grasscloth wallpaper add textural warmth.

I love wall treatments, and a simple “1×2” board repeated on a wall is classic.
Designer/ Studio M
A graphic rug anchors this updated coastal space and pillows in vibrant hues bring in the perfect amount of color.
The architectural detail in this space is utilized to perfection, and the furnishings are the perfect accompaniment…

Who doesn’t love a sea of blue?

I think this is the perfect porch, layered in living, old and new, texture and pattern.

Don’t forget to follow us on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook & Twitter for more design inspiration…Starting next week we will be starting our bathroom renovation. We partnered with Kohler so it’s going to be an exciting design collaboration (with a lot of fabulous products including a custom designed dual vanity). I’ll be sharing pictures of the progress along the way.
Be Inspired. Be Amazing.
