Stinson Beach House by ScavulloDesign

Architecture & Interiors

You’ll notice we don’t post about a lot of “beachy” stuff. Frankly the look often seems worn out to us — and can slide into cliche, done-that-before territory really easily. But, every now and then a beachy-looking place will come across our radar that perfectly respects the spirit of the look and does so in a surprisingly modern way.

ScavulloDesign’s behind the interior design of the Stinson Beach House, and while a quick glance might leave you with the impression this is a traditional-styled space, look closer. You see that? Modern details! And not modern details shoved in to create an “eclectic” look, but modern details expertly chosen to look perfectly with the more traditional items in the space already. A really fun look, if you ask us. More on ScavulloDesign’s online portfolio.

What do you think about this mix of beachy + modern?

    The Stinson Beach House is lovely. I agree that at a quick glance my first impression was of a traditional-styled space but there are modern touches here and there.

    Love the detailing on the walls, sort of like a 3-D board and batten. The different shades of blue against the color of the wood walls and floors makes it feel beachy. Beautiful!

      Yes! Great details you’ve picked out. I hadn’t noticed the walls yet, but you’re totally spot on. Thanks for the comment!

    Wow, great beach house. Fireplace is my personal favorite. It just fits in perfectly as modern yet still “old” warm.

    The big window design is very helpful in keeping your house bright with the help of natural sun light.
    I also like the combination of cushions used in all the rooms.
    Overall the interior is very nice of this stinson beach house.
