Windmark Beach home living room
Antoine Bootz

Welcome to the Beach

Beach house style just got a lot more interesting. "Don't be afraid of color," says designer E. Dale Trice. He proves his fearlessness in the living room by incorporating a vivid sectional sofa, curtains the color of a Gulf sunset, and accents of ocean blue.

Windmark Beach home living room seating
Antoine Bootz

Take a Seat

Versatile seating allows the living room to function as comfortably for two as it does for a crowd. A coffee table on wheels can be moved out of the way to accommodate a large group.

The sectional is manufactured using green practices, with organic fabrics and sustainable wood construction. Photographs of cypress swamps framed in black add definition to the room and bring a hint of the Florida landscape to the interior.

Designer Detail

Trice turned the tops of the law cabinets, flanking the built-in entertainment center, into window seats. Soft cushions and pillows create cozy reading nooks.

A contrasting flange detail introduces another color into the room scheme. Orange trim on the cream wooden blinds adds a custom touch and complements the tangerine sheers.

Entertain Me

Louvered shutter doors conceal the television in the living room. Trice hung a large photograph of Northwest Florida swamps in the space over the cabinet to draw the eye upward.

Dining area in the living room
Antoine Bootz

Dining Area

A long, narrow table against the wall of windows serves as a library table when not in use for dining. A lamp and tall vase provide focal points against the windows.

The mahogany trestle table base supports a wrapped aluminum top. Water hyacinth chairs are an economical alternative to wooden chairs and pick up the black tones of the room's picture frames.

Coffee table made from a pigeon basket

Creative Furniture

An old basket originally used to transport pigeons serves as a coffee table and conversation piece in the living room. Trice filled the basket with shells for its new life in the beach house. Industrial wheels add a functional design element.

Table Setting

Irregular-shaped stoneware (in shades of chocolate and blue) set a chic but casual table. Natural woven place mats contribute a contrasting texture, and bamboo-patterned flatware adds another reference to nature.
