Take for example coastal-style homes. A lot more goes in to effectively achieving this style than simply locating your home near the coast. The look is sophisticated, but that does not mean it is difficult to pull off. Picking the right color palette, along with the right accessories, and you can capture coastal style no matter how far you are from the beach.

Setting the tone means picking colors that adhere to a palette based in whites, neutrals, grays, blues, and blacks. Couple that with large windows that let in lots of natural light. That natural light is the perfect highlight to the accessories that round out the coastal feel. Finishing coastal style homes involves introducing pieces of coastal art, or even just specimens collected from that last walk on the beach. There are any number of ways that they can be made a part of your new home’s decor, and they round out that coastal feel.

No matter the style, we have designed and built dream homes that double as works of art for our clients. If you are looking for someone to perfectly transition what you have in your heart in to reality, contact us.
