A WELCOME THAT WOWS
You want guests to feel welcomed and drawn to your home's entryway. There are many ways to do this, but a brightly painted door is a quick way to garner the attention it deserves. Other ways to bring color to your doorstep are to use potted plants, flowers, and furniture that is eye-catching.
NICE NAUTICAL DETAILS
You've heard the saying, "It's the little things..." and indeed this is true when it comes to the small accents you choose for your beach house. We love the blue color of this Topsail beach home perfectly accented with the decorative gold-yellow sun on the exterior.
COASTAL COLOR PALETTE
Pulling your color inspiration from a coastal palette is an eye-catching way to draw attention to your home. The exterior of this home draws from light and airy beach colors of the ocean, seashells, and makes you feel like you're at the beach by just looking at it.
PLAY UP THE PRETTY POOL
If you have a pool, be sure to give it the spotlight it deserves. Whether you keep it simple and inviting or you decide to make it resort-style and surrounded by lounge chairs and umbrellas, you'll definitely want to keep your pool looking its best. People notice!
TOTALLY DECKED OUT
Ah, we love coastal homes with amazing decks! How else will you be able to soak up all the beautiful views that surround you? Making sure your deck is clean and clutter-free to be looking its absolute best, and you will have envying eyes admiring your beach house from every angle.
LOVIN' LAID-BACK LIVING
Many people associate beach life with a more laid-back lifestyle that we all crave. Decorating your outdoor living spaces to highlight a coastal, calming, cozy space to enjoy the beach and all its wonders is great way to convey the joys of beach living. Don't you want to sit here all day long?
NATIVE & NATURAL LANDSCAPES
Using the natural plants and flowers available to you in your area is a wonderful way to bring beauty to the outside of your home. Your curb appeal is increased by the great outdoors! Making your yard and outdoor living spaces inviting and keeping them well-manicured are two essentials for optimal curb and beach appeal. Too little landscaping and it can look sparse; too much landscaping can be a distraction. Aim for just right!
