Life's A Beach: Homes, Retreats, & Respite by the Sea


Life is better by the beach. The smell of salty sea breeze, the sound of crashing waves, and the feeling of release that encircles coastal living are altogether mesmeric. Taking cues from their surrounding ecosystems, seaside abodes manifest relaxation, beauty, and a heightened quality of living. In this vein, Life's a Beach takes readers into remarkable coastal dwellings around the world--from humble cottages to ornate, modern bungalows--to explore the many ways to inhabit, and relish, a home by the sea. Through the use of traditional techniques, natural materials, and eclectic decor, the interiors depicted in Life's a Beach imbue a sense of well-being and a connection to the coastal areas that surround them.
