Shingle Style Beach House Tour -- Seabrook

Have you ever had a dream house that you just couldn’t get out of your head, one that you just connected with? This shingled coastal home in Seabrook on the Washington coast is mine. Well, it’s not mine. I feel like it should be mine, but it’s not. It’s just my dream house. Ha! It is for sale, though, so don’t think that it hasn’t crossed my mind that maybe it really should be mine!

Today I want to take you on a photo-tour of this coastal beauty, which currently belongs to my friend Susan. She and her husband had this lovely home custom built! They generously invited me and my family to stay in their home for a few days this summer. It’s a dream home, for sure. But it’s also full of inspiration we can take away for our own home or future home!

You might remember that I did a post on this house last November, back when it was empty! I hadn’t been to the house, Susan shared her photos with me for the post. Now that I’ve actually stayed here, I can tell you it is better than I even could have imagined it would be. It felt like home.

I took so many photos while I was there, there are just SO MANY BEAUTIFUL ANGLES and sooo many things I want to show you! But as to not crash the blog or the internet with thousands of photos in a post, I’m going to narrow it down.

Today I will take you on an abbreviated tour of the first floor. Then I promise to share the other floors in a follow up post next week, and I will do a post on the Seabrook neighborhood (which is completely charming and everything I’d want in a new neighborhood). I will also do a list of sources, but I’ll share some at the end of the post, too. And don’t miss part two of the tour at the end of this post or by clicking right here!

The exterior is stunning, with it’s guest house and garage to one side and a view of the ocean to the other, plus a beautiful open space park in front with a gorgeous home across from it.

Just to show you that I was actually IN the house and the scale of the room, haha, here I am in Susan’s kitchen. Happy as can be! I mean, does it not look like I belong there? LOL! When Susan designed the home she used many of the elements that she found in my homes and on the blog for inspiration (like my brass faucet and sink). So I definitely think that’s one reason why I feel so at home here, it’s like elements of my own style came to life in this house!

Also, speaking of style coming to life, you can also watch my video tours of this home if you follow me on Instagram (it’s in the story highlights under Seabrook). If you don’t have Instagram, you might want to get an account just to follow me! It’s where (due to the capability of Instagram) that I am able to show more “in the moment” or “behind the scenes” videos from day to day life…or tours when I’m invited to stay in dream houses :).

One thing that struck me immediately upon entering the home is how cozy it felt. Even though the home is large, brand new and their family has only lived here a few months, it still felt warm and inviting.

I promise to do other posts where I will give you lots tips to get the look of this home, share things I loved about the layout if you are planning a custom build, and give you some remodeling ideas that I saw here for adding character to a home!

But for the rest of this first floor tour today I’m pretty much just going to let you look around and enjoy without my commentary! (I’ll share some sources at the end of the post and lots more in future posts!).

    Ah such a beautiful home and so sad to read that they are selling when they haven’t been in it a year…. I sure hope their family is okay.

    Melissa, that is an amazing house. Wow. You are lucky to have been in it! I’d have left drool marks all over it haha.

    Can’t wait for the rest of the tour – could spend hours looking at these beautiful photos.

    May I ask if you could pls share the name of the color of that bedroom with the black tube metal bed? It looks like the color of sea glass on my monitor. Thank you.
