As most of our loyal readers already know back in late June we finished designing the Coastal Living Ultimate Beach House. The project is featured in the October issue of Coastal Living, which may still be on newsstands. Of course, publications never really do a project justice, and likely neither will these photographs that I’m going to post… but hopefully some of you were able to visit the house as it was open for tours all summer. The new homeowners have moved in now and it is so nice that a real family is enjoying the space… and what a lucky family they are!
Over the course of the next few days I’m going to post photos of the house. A little more background info on the project: the house is 5,100 heated and cooled square feet, about 7,000 square feet total under roof. It is located in our neck of the woods, in the quaint coastal beach town of Rosemary Beach, Florida. The architecture was designed by Lew Oliver of Whole Town Solutions, the house was built by Benecki Homes, landscape architecture was designed by Alec Michaelides of Land Plus, all three of which are located in Atlanta.
The Master Bedroom walls are covered in Ralph Lauren’s Erin Line Herringbone grasscloth in color Natural (available through Kravet). Ralph Lauren was extremely generous in that they donated the wallcovering for this space. It softened the room and was the perfect balance between coastal and elegant. The beautiful Mahogany bed was designed and built by Andrew Reid of Reid Classics. I am sure he hated to see that I had two chairs placed at the foot of bed, as the mahogany piece he used for the footboard was exquisite. The bed is his D Post Bed with the 200 Headboard. All of the lamps throughout are from Circa Lighting. The bedside tables are the Litchfield Chests by Somerset Bay. Upholstery throughout was provided by Lee Industries, they were gracious enough to let me send a Travers trim that I thought would accent the back cushions of those chairs. . The painting above the bed was one that Allison and I found when we went to Miami and couldn’t pass it up, it managed to tie the whole room together with shades of gray, gold, green and blue. The linens on the bed are by Traditions and Mela & Roam, in my opinion two of the finest linen lines out there. The floors throughout the first floor are Peacock Pavers which we layered seagrass rugs over to soften. All of the seagrass rugs were ordered from our friends at Fibreworks.
This dresser is a piece that I had a local cabinet shop build, the color is a little off in this photograph, but the body of the chest is a vanilla color (same as the bedside chests) with details in an antique gold. The mirror above the chest is the Agnes by Madegoods. The deer bowl is vintage. All lighting by Circa.
The developer worked closely with the cabinet shop to design the cabinets throughout. They were a little more modern/trendy than our usual aesthetic, which ended up being a fun challenge, marrying a softer more traditional look we’re comfortable working in with clean-line contemporary cabinetry. All cabinetry was provided by Karpaty Cabinets.
Guest Bedroom 2
This bedroom’s walls were painted Pratt & Lambert “Moss Lake”. The bed is by Lee Industries, linens by Traditions. The bed is upholstered in Enchanted Baltic, which coordinated perfectly with Kelly Wearstler for Groundworks trim which we trimmed the accent pillows in.
Sunbrella was a fabric sponsor so we used them as often as possible, these draperies above are in a Sunbrella fabric with a Barbara Barry for Kravet trim. All the draperies throughout were fabricated and installed by Drape 98. The bathroom mirror is from Anthropologie and was the perfect solution for a window-behind-the-sink scenario. All of the beautiful bathroom apothecary items were donated by Patchouli’s in Rosemary Beach… a favorite amongst all of us at Urban Grace. The house smelled so wonderful.
By the time I made my way to the back of the house with my camera I forgot to photograph this bedroom’s adjacent bathroom. I also only took one photograph of this room. I was tired. The natural woven shades throughout were sponsored by B&W Window Fashions by Horizon Shades. Lamps by Circa, bed by Lee Industries, linens by Mela & Roam and Traditions. The wall color here is Pratt & Lambert’s “Ever Classic”. Drapery fabric is Thibaut.
The seagrass rug in this room was from Fibreworks new collection “Bakari” and is such a gorgeous pattern.
We chose to paint Bedroom 4 walls and bed the same color… Pratt & Lambert’s “Manchester”. We knew they would read differently in different finishes and it was the perfect understated combination we were hoping for. The bed in this room (like the Master) is also by Reid Classics. Andrew and I worked together on this custom design, and as a result he decided to name it the “Powell Bed”, I was honored. I’m sure it pained him greatly to paint a Mahogany bed, but it sure turned out gorgeous. The linens are Mela & Roam with a custom coverlet and shams in an ivory cane pattern matelesse by Fabricut (Nauru in Magnolia), with accent pillows in Peter Dunham’s Udaipar. Lamps and chandelier from Circa Lighting. The antique tree prints are some that Leigh Ann and I found at Scott’s Antique Market in Atlanta a few months back. Bedskirt is Lulu DK’s Tulah in Navy. The bedside tables are skirted in Fabricut’s Pelfrey in Navy. The bolster on the bed is Fabricut’s Renaissance in Patina with trim by Samuel & Sons.
If you are interested in any furnishings, fabrics, rugs, art (etc) you see in this post, or the posts to come in the next few days feel free to contact us via our website or you can email Allison at allison(at)urbangrace(dot)com .
I’m not sure if these are “pinnable” from this page, but if anyone wants to pin them on Pinterest I’ll be adding them to a “Coastal Living Ultimate Beach House” board as I update these posts.
