Ponce Inlet, FL

Effortless transition from indoors to outdoors.

This coastal Volusia oceanfront home started like most beachfront homes: Create a tranquil, relaxing environment that will be a magnet for family and friends. Then add in a home office and an additional living room on the second floor, and pair it with an area for a pool table and bar. Now the stage is set for a fun retreat, which enables entertaining space on two levels while also capturing fantastic views of the Atlantic Ocean.

The color palette mimics the colors of nature immediately surrounding the home. White, blues, and greys provide an effortless transition from indoors to outdoors. The kitchen, dining room and first-floor family room all open to each other. Together they create a large gathering spot that spills onto a spacious covered lanai overlooking the pool and ocean. Paradise found!
