I lost my home on the shoreline during hurricane Sandy....

It was a dream living with an ocean as my backyard but what made it not so attractive was the salt water mist all over the windows, especially those breezy days/

 

Loved that house and was very sorry when Sandy took it out to sea , but glad my window cleaning days were gone, nearly everyday!

Re: New England beach house with a view

Great view and I love the house, but I don't get a "beach house" vibe from it.

Re: New England beach house with a view

I love the view and the room but it is not beachy to me.

The roaring fire with the boats in the water like it is a hot summer day is a bit confusing.....other than that I would just probably change the furniture.

Even just changing the tables, adding lamps, and larger greenery would do it for me. I don't see any lighting.

This space looks neat, which leads one to believe the house is probably pretty neat as well. The view is wonderful. As for the decor, assuming you can call this decor, well no. Everything goes out and I start from scratch. What a pedestrian look to the room when there's so much potential here.

Re: New England beach house with a view

It's a beautiful view.

 

I'm not getting beach house from this at all.  The fireplace with the heavy stone work is more suited to a cabin, IMO.  

 

I don't care for the furniture.

Re: New England beach house with a view

Actually I like this entire room, but the view is spectacular.

It can get fairly cool and foggy near the Ocean even in the summer time, so I can see the fire place being a practicality.
