Alys Beach is a planned community in Florida's panhandle that boasts many elegant homes.
With their white stucco walls, elements of wrought iron combined with dark wood and private courtyards, Alys Beach homes might remind you of Greek, Caribbean, even Moroccan architecture.
Let's start with the Alys Beach Designer Show House from Traditional Home. To make it cohesive, the designers involved agreed to use a neutral beach inspired palette with accents of color. To no surprise, most designers chose to bring in a fresh Ocean Blue. Natural materials abound, and an innovative driftwood wall shelf that is used to display art is part of the scheme.
The Alys beach home by GCI Designs was featured in Veranda magazine. All these homes are great examples of how to decorate with white walls, as well as white furnishings.
What a show piece this driftwood table is. I like the frames high on the wall in between windows.
A capiz shell wall hanging decorates the space above the headboard. You could make this with wax paper circles. Take your inspiration from the Faux Capiz Shell Chandeliers!
Then, another Alys beach home by the same group. The wood ceiling gives this living room a completely different feel.
I love the Wall of Beach Treasures that are Scientifically Displayed in trays. And the large Albatross painting is unique and fun. It is available via Outer Banks Trading Group.
Then, the bedroom. A warm sea inspired retreat. Seahorse art sold by Outer Banks Trading Group.
This is one of the Alys beach homes that you can rent. I had to include it because of the Octopus Art!
A peek into a courtyard, also from the rental page. The courtyards not only provide privacy but also shelter from winds.
Last of the tour, an Alys beach home featured in Atlanta Homes Magazine, with playful pops of orange.
