An oyster shell was the inspiration for the 2017 Coastal Virginia Magazine Idea House, a partnership between Coastal Virginia Magazine and Stephen Alexander Homes and Neighborhoods. Located in Ashby’s Bridge near Sandbridge Beach in Virginia Beach, VA, the Nantucket-inspired dream home is all about a relaxed beach lifestyle! Interior designer Susan Wilson worked with the architects to create a cottage retreat feel with character and details around every corner. I love how the wide white oak planks with a driftwood finish and crisp white shiplap give the home a lived-in vibe, despite it being new construction with all the amenities that go along with it! The soothing sand and sea palette is the perfect backdrop for the natural elements and coastal-inspired accents woven throughout the home. And can we talk about that kitchen?? The blue island is definitely the focal point, but I love the wine bar that leads to the pantry too. And how gorgeous is that dining room?!
