Florida beach house big on style, small on size

I wanted to share with you some photos of a beach house I designed for a family who wanted a vacation place on the Florida Gulf coast. This is near Seaside and Rosemary Beach, if you’re familiar with that area. While the home is only around 2,000 square feet, my wife Susan (interior designer) and I were able to create an elegant and livable home that welcomes guests all through the year.

This is the street view of the beach house--the pergola you see is over their driveway, which makes a nice entrace to the home.

Here you can see the home from the beach side--the verandas give it Southern charm yet with a bit of European elegance.

A View from further down on the beach.

Here's the small but efficient kitchen.

And the elegant and cozy living room. Susan is a master interior designer.

Here you can see the fireplace on the other side of the room.

And al fresco dining on the lovely veranda. I wish you could see the view from up here--I'll need to find a day shot of this!
