Book Description

April 10 2012
An unprecedented tour of breathtaking beach community and waterfront properties in idyllic settings such as Southern California, Florida, the Hamptons, and Puerto Vallarta is showcased in this alluring volume. The select houses—ranging from casual weekend retreats and charming cottages to luxurious family compounds—are the personal homes of decorators and tastemakers such as Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan, Juan Montoya, Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, Matthew Rolston, Linda Garland, and Michael Bruno. Freed from the frenetic pace of daily life, a beach house is a place to express your playful, adventurous side: white floorboards replace thick carpets, rooms are accented with jaunty nautical touches, and the palette ranges from pastel tones to shots of vivid color. 

Innovative ideas for indoor-outdoor living are richly represented, from garden and swimming pool areas to sunny patios. Since outdoor entertaining is a hallmark, a range of stylish decorating and design possibilities is included. This beautifully photographed and inspirational book encourages one to explore the design opportunities available at the beach with flair.

This book is a dream. Readers of this work will see many familar houses which have appeared in fine quality decoration magazines. The photographs are to die for! If you own a house on the coast or would like to own one this book is for you.

"Rooms to Inspire by the Sea" was not as inspirational as I had hoped. Unfortunately, there's really nothing new here...

3.0 out of 5 stars NIce book. Not relevant to most people. Nov. 1 2012
By SC Garden Gnome - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a nice book with pretty photos. I was looking for ideas I could use but these properties are so far outside my reality that it was pretty useless to me. I am going to pass it on to a friend. It was nice to look through once but not interested in looking again and again.
