A cheery palette and comfortable furnishings keep generations of the same family coming back to the beach in easygoing style.
Three grown sisters continue a longstanding summer family tradition in a new beach house built where their grandfather's no-frills cottage once stood. The charming home captures the memories of the original structure, while providing more space and creative comforts.
The bright, inviting screened porch is a favorite place to cool down after a day at the beach. Furnished with mod wicker seating, the space dons a breezy blue-and-white scheme punctuated with cheery yellow.
Playful pops of sunshine yellow are cooled by gray in the kid-friendly bath. A painted desk and chair serve as a simple vanity.
Bold hues, lounge seating, and a chalkboard-top table make the upstairs living area a favorite hangout for kids. Airy rattan-style furnishings are a great small-space choice, as their see-through arms and legs never stop the eye.
