Dining Area and Grill on Terraced Back Patio

Slate Backsplash Compliments Stone Countertop

As seen on Vacation House For Free, the slate backsplash in the kitchen compliment the stone surface of the kitchen island.

Bedroom with Coastal Design

Host of Vacation House for Free, Matt Blashaw, designed this bedroom with the beach in mind. The coastal design is carried out through the natural, beachy colors he uses, such as the aqua blue of the ocean and the coral of the reef. He then used natural materials, such as the wood framing around the windows and the wood end tables to bring the outside in even more. The finishing touch is the picture of the sand piper above the bed.

Back Deck Overlooking Marsh and Lake

As seen on HGTV's Vacation House for Free, Matt and his team created a relaxing oasis for these homeowners with a back deck that overlooks the marsh and the lake beyond it. The succulents and other plants in the large planters help to add the feeling of a luxury escape.

Nautical Themed Sitting Room

As seen on Vacation House For Free, the sitting room off the living room is a space that utilizes the abundance of natural light that flows through the window bank. The additional seating makes the space great for entertaining. The nautical theme is well presented here with lots of seaworthy details.

Removing Wall Adds Light and Space

As seen on Vacation House For Free, the previous door was knocked down and the wall was opened up to allow light to flow into the rest of the house. The wall was evened out, which allowed for the vaulted ceiling in the dining space.

Small Kitchen with Sea Green Backsplash

As seen on HGTV's Vacation Home for Free, Matt uses neutral colors with a pop of green to make this small kitchen feel lighter, brighter and larger.

Natural Colors and Materials in Kitchen

As seen on HGTV's Vacation House for Free, Matt's design for this beautiful coastal kitchen incorporates the natural colors of the ocean and sky, as well as material that can be found naturally, such as the wood for the ceiling.

Neutral Tones and Natural Textures in Living Room

As seen on Vacation House for Free, host Matt Blashaw used a mix of neutral tones and patterns throughout the living room of this lakefront home in Oakland, Maine. The natural stone fireplace and natural wood mantel adds texture and warmth, while the wooden slats on the ceiling help to add a rustic feel to the space. The plush furniture and colorful pillows add a bit of chic to the living room.

Neutral Sitting Room with Lake View

As seen on HGTV's Vacation House for Free, Matt Blashaw has designed a sitting room for the homeowners that provides an excellent view of the lake. With plenty of seating, this space is a wonderful place to entertain or simply enjoy your morning coffee.
