New Beach House with Coastal Interiors

Designed by Christyn Dunning of The Guest House Studio, this new beach house feature coastal interiors that will surely inspire you.

The home borders a man-made lake in the sought out community of Daniel Island in Charleston, SC. and it belongs to a young family of four who recently relocated from Texas to Charleston. The wife always wanted a coastal home but the husband wanted something that was not the typical “beach” house but a classic home with strong trim details and modern features with just a dash of coastal flair. The couple had already chosen the Yarmouth Blue from Benjamin Moore for the exterior of the home so the interior designer used that as a starting point for the design of the interior.

Featuring large and spacious rooms, in which most of them feature custom trim and millwork, the designer felt that it was important that the house felt clean and seamless, therefore she brought in rustic white oak floors so the trim and floors could really complement each other. Painting the majority of the house in a crisp white paint color, Sherwin Williams Extra White, and mixing it with pops of navy, yarmouth blue, and gray added warmth and interest to the coastal interiors of this beach house. To bring texture the designer stuck with classic neutral furniture and natural rugs and add more color through art, softgoods, and drapery. The finish result is a stunning, well built home that feels timeless and effortlessly coastal.
