Seabrook and Coastal Living Magazines Ultimate Beach House Preview Party.....

Hi Everyone!
First of all let me start this post by saying a gigantic THANK YOU to Seabrook and Tim for inviting us to the Preview Party..It was one of the most amazing, thrilling, exceptional nights I can remember in a long time.

I was honored.
So, here we are..

The entry to the Ultimate Beach House was done so perfectly-imperfect with native mosses and groundcovers. The cement pavers were done with an oyster shell exposure. Gorgeous! Simplistic cedar planters with boxwoods top it off as you enter into the cute little gated courtyard. is none other than Tim Clarke, himself! He was so wonderful ...when he saw my mom coming down the breezeway, he said...Oh, she came!! He is a true gentlemen, sweet and so approachable.
And I am a huge fan.
--hello, look at that darling belt buckle..

shall we get started??

Fireplace and outdoor barbecue-party space. Look at that magnificent oystershell mirror.

The whale was so perfect in its spot outside..

This basket with the blankets came from Grand Heron.

Amazing fireplace in the living room set the tone for the whole home, the lighting as made me feel like I was visiting the treasured home of a young sea faring captain.

The kitchen was simplistic to a T..No over the top granite or marble here. Totally refreshing. I craved the space. Martha would love this kitchen. The photos dont do it justice.

These orange twin beds were stunning with the dark blankets and then a blue and white cotton rug from Dash & Albert.
The Master Bedroom suite.

On to the dinner party..Yes, I think I was the last one in..silly girl, to dilly dally in that house so long.
(totally worth it)

This is Stephen Poulakos, landscape architect, among many things.. and the towns go-to guy speaking in the perfect green sweater...

Casey and Laura Roloff..The dreamer-uppers and town founders of Seabrook..(also high school sweet hearts)
Laura is going to have their 4th baby girl in a few weeks!

Tim Clarke here below on the left..Coastal food done to perfection. Crab legs, oysters, steamer clams..It was all delicious and so simply and perfectly displayed.

This is downstairs, large media room and workout room.
I feel like my photos arent all they should have been, but I was completely drunk with excitement and high on design--decor.Please forgive me...

It really did my soul good to be at this lovely occasion. May I speak for my family and say thank you again to Tim Clarke, Coastal Living Magazine and the wonderful Seabrook Family for the terrific hospitality and forward thinking you all have put into our little corner of the world.
It is deeply and profoundly appreciated.
we GET it!
Thank you sooo soo much!

If you are interested in coming and seeing the Coastal Living Ultimate Beach House at Seabrook

What a fabulous house Lisa, in such a beautiful part of your town! The Master B/R & that awesome firebox in the Living Room are my 2 absolute favourite features. You & Mr. BV looked right at home at such a star-studded event - I think this definitely makes you A-Listers.

Hi! We were so honored in 2006 to have been invited to the Coastal Living House at Pacific City, OR (we had quite a few of our products featured in the house) - so I can really understand you excitement. Loved this post, loved the preview pictures of all the unique architectural details and fun colors.

Looks like you had a wonderful time - hope you don't mind that I am sharing on my fb page!

Mrs. G. said...

When do I sign the lease! That kitchen!!! What a fun event. Mr. Clark is a cutie (as are you).

Girl About the World said...

I had an opportunity to tour the house, too, and it really was awesome -- loved the fireplace, flooring, French mirrors in one of the upstairs bathrooms, and the sauna/steam room near the gym. And of course the view! Sounds like you had a great time at the preview party!

Curtis said...

Wow what a beautiful home!!! Love that it is simply perfect, not overdone like so many homes featured on sites. I could walk in and relax and that is what a coastal home should be about!!!
Blessings to you and yours
Curtis & Sherrie

Simply Gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!

Martha said...

Oh Lees. I just LOVE that house! The decorating is so comfy! All of the Grand Heron items look right at home there :)

I wonder who the architect is? Not the decorator, but the architect. The design, room layouts and exterior elevations make this house what it is

Amazing...just amazing:)
