Home Tour: Bold & Playful Fire Island Beach House

Alexandra Angle | Photography by Lucas Allen
After yesterday's colourful home I felt inspired to find other seaside homes that broke the trend for whitewashed, nautical-inspired schemes. With a colour block approach to decorating, this Fire Island beach house certainly fitted the bill. I love how simple shelving and bookcases have been made into interesting features with a quick coat of paint. The vase vignette is manages to be a striking piece despite its simple stripe nature. This is telling of much of the house: although bright hues are used, they are used in an understated, gently playful manner. And don't get me started on that adorable mini surf shack area, complete with an outdoor shower and a summary yellow hue means I can't get enough of it!

  15. Playful, indeed. I especially adore the outdoor shower--much as I love them, most are a bit dismal and in desperate need of a sunny coat of paint.
