Step Inside a Stunning Home Makeover With Bermudan Architecture and Beachy Vibes

The beachside town of Alys Beach boasts white sand shores and equally bright white homes with a distinct flavor of architecture—from Mediterranean to Moroccan influences—sure to inspire wanderlust. Among the luxurious buildings of the Floridian escape is a stunning beach house featuring Bermudan architecture, built in 2016 and designed by Eric Watson. The airy, 3145-square-foot home offers a spacious open floor plan connected to a sprawling courtyard and showcases four bedrooms, four and a half baths, and a bunk room for the little ones. Working closely with the owners, Chelsea Robinson of Chelsea Robinson Interiors sought to transform the space into a dreamy second home for their growing family.

"My directive for this beach home was for my client to feel completely transported and instantly placed in a state of tranquility," says Robinson. "The interior provides a feeling of complete understated elegance." Natural, unfinished woods and coastal elements are abundant throughout the light-drenched home, so the task felt appropriate. "All of the many uses of different textures, elements from nature, and the mix of modern and Old World throughout the entire home accomplish this goal of a peaceful, understated elegant retreat," she explains.
