Coastal Living Idea House 2017 Sneak Peek

Happy 4th of July festivities! I’ve thought and thought about today’s postings and decided to show you a sneak peek of one of the most beautiful show houses ever designed. This year, Coastal Living Magazine celebrates its 20th anniversary and is marking the occasion with a very special Idea House set in historical Newport, Rhode Island. For this project, Coastal Living has teamed up with designer Mark D. Sikes for the interiors, A. Tesa Architecture and Horan Building company to design, build and decorate a stunning bay-front home that will be for sale soon after the showhouse visits end. The grounds were designed by Infinity design group, landscape and architecture firm.

One of the special things about this home is that it is entirely decorated in blue and white. Pattern on pattern and lots of natural textures add interest to the blue and white color scheme throughout. Stripes, gingham and floral prints feel right at home and create a preppy New England nautical feel.

The showhouse is open until September 4th so if you’re anywhere near Newport during the summer, make sure to check this beauty out. I’m not sure we’re gonna make it to the east coast this summer and since I can’t wait patiently for Coastal Living’s September issue, I did some Instagram sleuthing and found several shots of this lovely house. Rather than spoiling this home for you, I think it is going to make you want to get to Newport asap!
