The relaxed vibe in the living room is created with warm colours and bright furniture.
Kitchen | Colourful beach house
The kitchen is the sunniest room in the house and, with windows on three sides, has the best vantage points, too. The blue shade helps blend in with the sky outside.
Living room corner | Colourful beach house
Fun, unexpected touches, such as this mermaid lamp from 1stdibs.com, can be found throughout the house. The owner customised it herself with an inexpensive white shade and fringing.
Snug | Colourful beach house
The surf-themed snug is a playful, colourful room, ideal for children.

The chandelier is from Moth Design in LA.
Bedroom | Colourful beach house
The pop-art style bedroom is bold and quirky.
