Dining Area and Grill on Terraced Back Patio

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.

The finishing touch is the picture of the sand piper above the bed.
