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).

Driftwood grey shows up again, and notice the amazing sconces and minimal design.

Even though the color story here is muted and chalky, I think I would feel very much at home here.

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!

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.

    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!

    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..
