Urban Approach










What a joy this house is. So often beach houses stick to a very prescribed look. Bleached timbers, stripes, and light colour palettes. And why not, it is a perfectly gorgeous look.

But at last, here is a fabulous example that the safest look need not be the only one that works. Here they've applied a more urban approach, and isn't it a killer look. Still lots of natural elements of timber and found treasures {{seriously, how good does that collection of brush wood look}}, but all dressed up in a dark mix of black paint, shadowy corners and a touch of velvet. Loving it.

That's quite the beach house! Love the purple bits. Very different from any beach house I've ever photographed, that's for sure.

The wide-openess of it is soothing. But those limbs are wicked. Love the drama.

I'm not feeling the graffiti art, but I do love that deck/kitchen
