Wow-Worthy Walkway

"Head-turning" doesn't even begin to cover this one, folks. The ultra-chic white exterior, black trim and tropical palms of this beachside estate are sure to leave passersby with mouths agape. Tall green hedges and a wide, checkered walkway of pavers herald a grand welcome to this handsome home.

Natural Beauty

Life is easy at this lovely, laid-back beach bungalow. We’re smitten with the way the gray-green exterior allows the home to blend seamlessly into the surrounding landscape of tropical shrubs and trees.

Posh Pools

A healthy green landscape speckled with shrubs and trees makes this snow-white beach home really stand out. But the most striking feature of this modern home? A set of sleek, shallow pools that frame the front walkway.

Twice As Nice

We’re obsessed with these contrasting beachfront abodes. On the left, a modern beach home showcases ocean views at every turn with its floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors. On the right, their next-door-neighbor boasts a stately, southern-inspired coastal home complete with dreamy columns and charm that goes on for days.

Style Meets Function

Presenting: gorgeous garages. No, that’s not an oxymoron. This contemporary, tropical beach home in Florida proves the impossible is possible. The exterior features clean lines paired with crisp white and rich, warm wood to accentuate the custom, three-car garage.

Warm + Welcoming

Classic lanterns line the front walk to this ultra-charming, island family home. The soft glow serves as a subtle spotlight to showcase the architectural beauty of the home, day or night.

Native Landscape

Located just outside of Charleston, S.C., this beautiful beach house features a front lawn defined by native sweetgrass and dwarf papyrus. These plants not only soften the home's exterior but also evoke the texture and movement of the marsh in the distance.

Shoreside Symmetry

Two words: seaside stunner. This bright, happy home serves up some serious, symmetrical curb appeal with the perfect balance of pretty, palm trees and potted plants lining either side of the front steps. A rich, chocolate wood door creates cool contrast against the airy, pastel exterior and adds a delightful touch of drama and dimension to the beachfront facade.

Designer Disguise

Palm trees stand tall at the entryway of this Balinese-inspired, contemporary beach house. Our favorite aspect of this home? The jaw-dropping, checkered wood details along the facade that serve as an oh-so-chic disguise for the home’s garage.

Seaside Sweetheart

This blue-gray beach house is sweet as pie with a shrub-lined front garden and the American flag proudly on display. A peaked and gabled roof adds to its charming design and we witness the power of paint, with snow-white trim that pops against the stormy exterior paint.

Maintain Materials

Continuity is crucial when creating killer curb appeal. Stick to a simple color palette and remain loyal to your statement-making materials. Stacked stone and blue shingle siding create a one-of-a-kind look for this beachside home. The same stacked stone is used to create the front wall for a result that's equal parts unique, unified and head-turning.

Lighting the Way

Imagine waking up in this dream beach home to the sound of crashing waves. The front elevation of this grand home, inspired by classic New England lighthouses, gives guests priceless views of the beach below.

Sleek, Seaside Stucco

There’s nothing “charming” about this cool, contemporary beachfront home. A sure standout amongst a sea of bungalows, this home features double glass-pane balconies and an exterior made from slate-gray stucco and warm, redwood accents. A gray and white grid adds sophistication to the side garage door.

Charming Cottage

There’s something undeniably homey about this petite, pale-blue beachside cottage. Cozy Adirondack chairs offer a spot to soak up the sun on the lush, fenced-in front lawn. Traditional white wood and brick columns flank the front porch where a bold, cherry-red door adds a pop of color and oodles of personality.

Sleek + Sweet

A custom copper gate and towering, tropical trees ensure that this coastal Carolina home leaves a lasting impression on all that pass by. On the second-story balcony, a piece of cheery, sunshine wall art adds warm hominess to the otherwise ultra-crisp, contemporary design.
