Like midcentury modern loves clean lines and boho boasts layers of textures, every popular design motif has its tried-and-true trademarks. That goes for beach house style, too, the vernacular of which is defined by spaces that feel light, bright, and (perhaps above all) like a permanent vacation.
In our all-new Style Issue (available for order online now, and on newsstands August 30!), we’re celebrating everything that makes seaside design the ultimate eye candy. From the dreamiest outdoor spaces to pattern-filled bedrooms, we’ve rounded up ideas to inspire a redo in every room.
In the Sunshine State, we found stylish in the form of a fashion maven’s Palm Beach pied-à-terre, which packs an Old Florida-inspired mix of texture, pattern, vintage scores, and loads of pink into 1,460 square feet. On the west coast, beach style is reimagined with a palette of pared down neutrals punctuated by organic textures and statement artwork.
Since coastal homes are perfect canvases for the bold and beautiful, we’re also spotlighting our favorite ways to pull off eye-catching displays of beachy patterns (flamingo wallpaper—why not!?). And as the perfect complement to statement prints, we’re also revealing a sneak peek of our new Coastal Living Home Collection, Escape, featuring a line of timeless mainstays from a white-painted wood pedestal table to a sculptural rattan accent table.
Whether you’re shopping for a vacation home or a permanent home, beach house style is often inspired by the literal escapes we love—and in this issue, we’re celebrating some of the chicest new getaways we’ve found from California to the Mediterranean. We’ve also taken a page (or a few) from celebrated photographer Gray Malin’s latest book, Italy, featuring his dreamy snapshots of beach life along this stylish (and oh-so-colorful!) stretch of European coastline.
