Built on an elevated site on the North Coast, with an ocean view for miles, this family home has a dream outlook that rivals any coastal property. However, there is not a whitewashed wooden fish, shell art or a ‘Gone to the Beach’ sign in sight! This carefully designed and crafted sanctuary by the sea had a light interior touch applied in order to complement its minimal style and streamlined architectural features. The different hues of green and blue used not only subtly relate to the surrounding landscape but also inject the warmth and personality of the clients, while creating a flow between the open split level living areas. With the widespread use of glazing in this style of build it is important to maintain privacy, so sheer window treatments allow for this while preserving the luminosity provided by the natural light streaming in.
