This dining room was designed to accommodate a crowd. The 12-foot long table, neutral colors, and backless benches leave a clear view of the beach, while the strong architecture makes the room interesting without complicating, fussy fabrics.

When decorating this Mexican hideaway, designer Myra Hoefer wanted the house to look like it had been abandoned years ago, and the sand and sea had swept over it. All of the items in the house would have been washed up from a shipwreck on the beach. "Spanish settlers would have brought these beds over with them," Hoefer says of this iron four-poster bed with an almost colonial look to it. (Photo: Lisa Romerin)
Aged Appeal Rapisardi loves signage reminiscent of bygone days in beach towns. Two lanterns flank this custom sign, while underneath a fireplace constructed from weathered granite and bricks from an old mill gives the new home instant character.
The master bath opens to an oceanside deck. "It's very white and very simple," Espley-Miller says. "I wanted nothing to detract from the incredible view and the light."
Tied Together Open floor plans present a decorating challenge: balancing the need to unite spaces while giving each zone a distinct vibe. Try tying spaces together with a soft accent color. Here, a soft blue from the living room's ottoman and throw pillows flows perfectly onto the stools lining the kitchen's breakfast bar.
