Coastal Living Idea House 2010 in Seabrook WA

The Coastal Living Idea House 2010 has opened its doors!

idea house Coastal Living  in Seabrook
The home is located in Seabrook, WA, an idyllic resort community on 300 coastal acres, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Seabrook sounds just like small town Europe -homes close together, groomed parks, playgrounds, a restaurant, a grocery store, all connected with pedestrian paths. That's how I grew up in Switzerland, except for the breathtaking ocean view of course!

The views can be enjoyed from this comfortable porch.

Seabrook House
The Coastal Living Idea House itself is sparse with coastal theme decor items. But the color palette comes straight from the sea. It shows that coastal theme decorating does not have to be so literal.

Color Palette Seashells
I love the muted purple of the mussel shells they used in the house.

An expressive piece of art in an unexpected location, providing a beautiful ocean view.

shell colors for decor inspiration
The soothing grey-blue color palette of the bathroom was inspired by oyster shells.

I'm loving how warm and coastal this room feels.

driftwood color palette inspiration
The inspiration came from driftwood which they have plenty of.

And I love this fun shot! Erin and Jacob of Meadow Lake Cottage toured the Coastal Living Idea House and treated themselves to a bike ride through the Seabrook community during their Coastal Cottage Getaway. Head over to their site to see the Coastal Living Idea House through their lens!

I would love to tour this house, but don't know if that's possible before the end of this month. It's just gorgeous, and I love the images that show how they derived the color palette. The inside looks incredibly calming... not to mention, the view!

This is my favorite one they have done-- so many wonderful touches and I love that they're sharing inspiration for the paint colors. Thanks, Maya :)

I have a bathroom to remodel that already has beadboard, and this bathtub picture is giving me some new ideas for the front of it!
Beautiful home.

I live in Washington state, not far from this lovely house. The setting is spectacular and one of our favorite places to go. I've visited this home and it is amazing! So many great ideas. A must see:)

We are on the same wave length. I just copied all the Seabrook beachhouse photos into a folder last night to post on my blog this week. This is the house I mentioned in a post last week that I love!! Now, when I post about it I will add a link to you for everyone to 'see more'. You do such a better job than me of posting all the details anyway. :)

Before my Husband's family bought a house in Cannon Beach, OR they checked out Seabrook. It is super cute. A very East Coast feel which I love. I even saw an HGTV house hunters on one of the houses!

I love seeing these homes and dreaming about them. This one is really far from me...I won't be visiting in person, but loved the pictures.

Sherri said...

I want to live in that house-LOL!!! It is so gorgeous!!

Enjoyed the Erin and Jacob's tour of the place, what a cool idea about using the bikes too. For some reason, I never knew you could actually tour the house in person, that's nice to know in case they ever have one in Maine again. Also, I'm in love with that marine painting hanging above the bathroom tub, and of course how they picked out all the colors. ~Lili

I like the zen feeling, but not so much the style that creates it. Gorgeous color choices, but the living dining area seem a bit urban. That's just me... pay no attention.

I love it! Really wish I could go and tour it! Unfortunately, since I live across the country ... that is not going to happen! Thanks for sharing!!

Beach Vintage said...

I just picked up the new Coastal Living today. It has a spread about this house in it. They have glass fishing floats in the bathroom!!! Wonder if someone got them from me??? :)

Love this house, but I'd settle for a quaint little beach cottage on the Oregon coast. Maybe someday! :)

Thanks for sharing, Maya!
