A Distinct Vibe of a Coastal-Style Home.

When you visit a coastal town you notice the interior design difference from the Midwest the minute you walk in.   It just feels lighter and more open and spacious. Coastal style homes have an unmistakable vibe – light, airy, open, and always warm and welcoming. But a coastal-style home in Minnesota? Why not?

Homeowner’s Vision- Bring the Beach Vibe to the Home

When Julia and Craig Tice of Tice-Hause Design/Build decided it was time to remodel their home, they knew they wanted more than updated design and function.  They wanted the new space to feel like beach-home living, aka coastal-style living. Their thought process was if we can’t get to the beach as often as we’d like then why not bring the beach to us? They created a new design with  characteristics of a beach style home, from color to texture to open space, it just feels beachy. 


Defining Mediterranean/Coastal-Style Design Features

Love of travel inspired them to create a Mediterranean/Coastal design with that beach home feel. They define this newly renovated design/build as much more than seashells and nautical décor.  It is about structural design—architecture with wide arched openings. A design that is enhanced with rich wood and a light and airy cream finish, whitewash ceilings with large cream beams. They enhanced the open floor plan with nineteen raining pendant lights, a stately stone hearth, and natural colors. The center of the great room features and a flat natural stone floor to ceiling fireplace. The style they were looking to achieve has some traditional characteristics but with a coastal, modern/contemporary Mediterranean twist.

Coastal Style Living in the Midwest

Another characteristic of the Coastal/Mediterranean beach style is a distinct focus on indoor-outdoor living, with a spacious open floor plan and Spanish and Italian influences. The four-panel 14×10 expansive Marvin glass patio door that overlooks an outdoor pool and beautiful landscaping gives the home an even more “beachy” feel.

When designing your new home or remodeling project it is important to think of the day-to-day way you want to live. If the beach is your thing, then creating a home with a coastal, beach-style feel is the next best thing.
