Light and Natural Florida Beach House

This relaxed and refined beach house in Rosemary Beach, Florida was designed by architect Bobby McAlpine and interior designer Susan Ferrier.

Here are a few details about the house:

Style: Dutch Colonial-inspired home with elegant but casual interiors that stand up to family life

Space: 4,800 square feet spread over three levels, with five bedrooms, six baths, an open living/dining area, and a downstairs den

Setting: The white sands of Rosemary Beach, Florida, just off scenic Highway 30A between Panama City and Destin

View: The shimmery blue-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico.         

Excerpt from Coastal Living

Instead of nautical stripes, kicky colors, or shell-themed accessories, Bobby and Susan are known for a refined mix of muted shades with gradations from room to room; layered textures such as distressed wood and soft, organic fabrics; and clean lines found on everything from gridded panes of divided-light windows to pared-down versions of traditional furnishings.                          

The use of distressed woods and farics resonates big with me during the fall season.  I love their view on beach house design and think it's a nice change from the norm.  Do you agree?
