The cool, nautical blue style of this custom home on the Lake Huron beach looks like something from a movie. Taking inspiration from a lodge in Nova Scotia and the Kincardine shores, this couple called on Beisel Contracting Inc. to capture the elements of the beaches they've visited across the globe in their lakefront home.
Every inch of this home screams- or rather softly whispers- the beach. A hickory floor from House Rules Design Shop mixes with other wood finishes to add warmth to the kitchen, living and dining areas. The impressive two-storey fireplace by West Shore Stone & Brick is the perfect spot to warm up after a cool evening walk on the beach.
A love for the colour blue and a passion for design is seen through the tasteful pieces found throughout the home and it's exterior façade. The home is keeping with a clean, coastal vibe with neutral paint colours from Benjamin Moore that allow the brighter beachy colours to hold the spotlight. Some of the couple's favourite features include the luxurious, elegant ensuite bathroom, the garage and a short path that leads straight to the beach.
Looking forward to travelling to more of the off-the-grid locations that inspired their home and entertaining family and friends at their own beach property, these "beach bums" (and their cat, Zoe) have created a place to enjoy all of the things they love.
