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.

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.

Formal Dining Room with Backyard View
