This waterfront home oozes curb appeal from the sliding barn doors over French doors to the colorful flower bed and stepping stones leading to the entrance.

Wood beams, a shiplap ceiling, open shelves and a farmhouse sink add warmth to this white kitchen. I love all the texture from the woven pendant lights and striped rug.

The natural wood bar and shelves tie in nicely with the old wood beams and the fun detail of the peek through window is such an unexpected touch.

Everything in this dining room makes sure the star of the show is the water view.

I love the old screen door that opens to a walk in pantry, also with a stunning view.

White walls and trim are the perfect backdrop for colorful art and sliding barn doors.

A massive stone fireplace is a beautiful focal point in this cozy family room and a simple piece of artwork mimics the view outside. I love a sectional sofa in a cozy room like this. Built in bookcases flank the fireplace and are the perfect place for showing off unique finds.

A built in window seat with storage underneath means there is no wasted space in this home and it’s the perfect place to curl up with a book.

Blue bedroom accents mimic the ocean view. Nicola uses texture so well … notice the turned wood bench, bamboo curtain rods, woven chair webbing, rattan headboard and sisal rug that all blend beautifully together.

Bold pops of color in the master and guest bedrooms makes these spaces anything but boring.

It’s all in the details in this small bathroom with a live edge vanity, unique lighting and hardware.

The lighting in the family room reminds me of fireflies and is much more interesting than typical recessed lights.

The best seat in the house overlooks the water.

Nicola says, “At every step of the design process, I put myself in the environment. If it feels right, I go with my instincts. If it doesn’t, I step back for perspective. I know my work is done when it feels like a space I could embrace as my own.”

I think she hit the design nail on the head with this home! I love that it’s not your typical “beach house” filled with whale decor and seashells!

  1. Well that was jaw dropping! An ocean view outside every window!! An amazing home. And I loved the vintage screen door on the pantry.

  2. Love this beautiful layered home, with wood, white and rock and then that view. I could spend a month there for some R&R, heavenly!!

  3. Barn for an office please??? My office is a corner of upstairs rumpus room, with a view of….our court! At least I can double as a security cam as I type.

    The views, oh the views! And wood beams? I dream of wood beams for my beach house (which currently exists only in my mind).

    Thanks for sharing, it was like taking a mini vacation, but I didn’t have to worry about packing 😉

    1. I hear you Karen! Oh what I wouldn’t give for those ocean views and every detail inside. Look on the bright side – if you ever decide to quit blogging and painting furniture, you have a future as a security guard – watch out Paul Blart!!

  4. This might be the most beautiful space I’ve ever seen. The palette is one I love and have used in my house (which looks nothing like Nicola’s!). Thanks for sharing. Can you suggest the best way to save posts like these on my iPad for future inspiration? Thank you Kelly. Is it my imagination or are you posting less these days? Have a good week, and stay warm!Jeanne

    1. I could move right in too Jeanne! Do you use Pinterest? If so, just pin your favorite images to a special board for future reference. I have been posting much less frequently and only when I have something worthwhile to say!! Hope you have a lovely day and thanks so much for taking the time to comment – I appreciate it!

  5. Your home is done beautifully. I would give anything to have a fraction of this beautiful home. If I had that bed I wou.d never get out of it with a view like that. And eating at your kitchen table I was in awe it was looking into a painting. Your going to stay young forever.

  6. This might be my favorite tour! The wood aspects are amazing plus the water! Wow! Thank you for sharing!

  7. Why can’t I be rich and live in houses on the beach or in the mountains, oh well I will just have to wait for your tours and dream.
