A Beautifully Renovated Beach House

We love a beach house and we love a great renovation and when you find out it was all done on a shoestring budget it somehow makes it all the more special. This 1930's beach house ticks all the boxes, spotted over a year ago on Design Sponge and saved as a favourite, I recently came across it again and was struck once again by how cool this house was and what a beautiful renovation job the owners have done. The idea of a beach house is always going to be appealing but this one has a certain feel you don't see every day. The strong, stunning paint colours make the images of the interior initially feel like you could be looking at a series of paintings. Bought by Matthew Preston, an urban planner & his friend and business partner, Nils Wiesenmüller, an architect, the pair decided they really wanted to keep the character and feel of a beach house as opposed to modernising the house's interior and it losing its character and history. stairs & wall colour The strong colours chosen for the wall paint throughout the house were created by Kremer Pigment in New York and was the one area where the owners decided to ditch their shoestring budget. windows & eames rocker Kitchen & fire place books, storage & lamp daybed & quilt Dining table The table was made from a single slab of elm and was designed by Matthew Preston's friend Janis Melone, Matthew liked it so much he commissioned a second table. Beach House - Shelving & wardrobe Throughout the house Matthew & Nils have used salvaged materials wherever possible. The shelves above were created using materials from a local lumber yard. Best thing is, should you want to stay in this beach house and experience it first hand then you can as it is available to rent through Airbnb.
