Dropping temperatures this week as we move to the new place have my heart daydreaming of warmer temperatures and white waves. Take me to the coast! Is your beach house available for shivering-overdue-for-vacay blogging guests? Til then, the loveliness of Coastal Interiors: Sophisticated Design Ideas are here to soothe and inspire your schemes.
Coastal Interiors: Sophisticated Design Ideas to Inspire Now
This first exceptionally luxurious coastal property on Charles St., Alys Beach, FL was designed by Domin Bock Architects whose work has been published in Veranda and BHG.
Isn’t the finish on the cabinetry unique and full of character? I imagine it would be easy to live with that atmospheric grey with the grain of the wood coming through.
Luxurious White Entry & Rustic Wood Accents
How about an entry with the most minimal rustic shelf for keys or mail?
This wood clad statement wall reminds me of my own bedroom wall (still one of my favorite DIYs because it was easy as pie!).
Are there rules about placing a bed in front of bedroom windows? I think it’s important to follow your heart (and possibly feng shui advice).
Warm Minimal Modern Bathroom Design
Driftwood grey shows up again, and notice the amazing sconces and minimal design.
How about a beachy feel for the shower each and every single day?
Serene & Neutral Coastal Kitchen
I’m shopping for over-the-island pendants, and these would be swell!
Even though the color story here is muted and chalky, I think I would feel very much at home here.
What would you add in this space to make it your own?
Driftwood Grey Tones in a Luxurious Kitchen
I don’t care what “they” are saying about gray being over! Bring on the driftwood greys, mama!
Luxurious Courtyard With Water Feature
Lord have mercy, I could get used to this outdoor lounging situation!
That pool is plenty big for me!
White Coastal Home Exterior
Also inspiring us is a magnificent property at 74 Butterwood Aly, Alys Beach, FL, also designed by Domin Bock Architects and built by J.D. Scott.
My summery heart is ready for greening!
Classic & Traditional Coastal Kitchen
Are you more of a coastal blue person?
Lush Courtyard Living in a Coastal Florida Home
Aren’t the pops of blue amazing in this lush, relaxing oasis? Read more about trending paint colors HERE.
Aren’t the courtyard doors divine? Making a mental note. For all those beach house plans doncha know. 🙂
Fine. I can at least acquire those garden bench/side table things.
Magnificent Architecture in Alys Beach
Custom Coastal Backyard Retreat
A different flavor of coastal, albeit a more laid back yet very much bespoke and luxurious hails from Australia.
This inspiring backyard retreat came together with the help of gorgeous oak and fine craftsmanship from Loughlin Furniture.
Isn’t the warmth of the wood doors and awning glorious?
That wall inside this cabana barn reminds me how much I love board and batten! Can you imagine going white board and batten wild in a beach house like Ashlyn did below?
Ashlyn used SHERWIN WILLIAMS Extra White which is so clean and pristine:
Warm Minimal Design Style for the Bath
I think you’ll agree Loughlin creates breathtaking designs, including custom vanities such as these:
I can’t stop staring at these minimal yet warm and inviting bath designs!
More Coastal Decor Inspiration
Whether a sprawling classic beach house like this is in the budget or not, it’s possible to evoke the emotion and mood of a coastal property with furniture, decor, smart color choices, and art.
A painting like this glorious example from Shelby Dillon Studio below can inspire a room’s decor direction in one fell swoop! There’s just nothing like original art.
And if you have ever wondered how to paint a simple ocean seascape…give it a whirl!
Coastal Escape for “Research”
Is there a better excuse to book a coastal cottage for vacation than ‘because I need more inspiration for beachy decor?’
I stumbled upon Corolla, North Carolina’s Summerfell Cottage and was smitten with the ease and serenity of its blue and white simplicity.
More difrtwood grey, white, and blue.
An Exceptional Coastal Property on the Market in FL
This beautiful sprawling coastal home on the market HERE is brimming with design inspiration.
Shiplap + blue + white + bunk room = ahhhhhhh
Need ideas for pretty blue-green paint colors? See THIS.
Neutral with brown tones…
and what a ceiling!
I have always dreamed of designing a room like this for our home. In lieu of a sofa, four club chairs in a conversational circle…
Also loving the island-y yet elegant vibe in this kitchen:
How about a pristine white working kitchen, “dirty” kitchen, scullery, or butler pantry.
Ooooh, another awe-inspiring ceiling!

Oh gosh, so much inspiration here. From the kitchen counter with the simple rectangle cutting board and simple plant on top…to the serene bathrooms that make me want to clear ALL COUNTERS RIGHT NOW, to the DIY painting I’m about to go watch and may copy. Lovely indeed!
Hahaha – I hear you. That is how beautiful design affects me as well! Thanks for reading!
I felt like I could open my MN front door and walk into some warm breezes! Oops! It didn’t even reach zero today. Oh well, you helped me dream! I appreciated that there weren’t a lot of beach signs, towels etc in those beautiful homes..
hahahaha – ya know nothing says ‘sophisticated’ like a ‘life’s a beach’ sign, right? Shivering with you, friend. xox
The white on this exterior is beautiful! What color and brand is it?
Wish I knew – I linked to the architect in the post, and maybe you could reach out to them with the ask! Thanks for visiting. 🙂
