Coastal Modern: Sophisticated Homes Inspired by the Ocean
COASTAL MODERN shares Tim's aesthetic of breezy elegance in more than 250 transporting photographs by award-winning photographer Noah Webb (Dwell, Vanity Fair, Travel + Leisure). These pages feature dozens of seamlessly connected indoor/outdoor spaces (many with jaw-dropping views) and sprawling rooms with clean lines, organic shapes and materials, a mix of textures, and colors inspired by the sea and the sand.
COASTAL MODERN is more than a portfolio of Tim's work; it’s an inspiration book filled with breathtaking imagery of the coast and interiors as well as tangible ideas that illustrate how any home can emulate the ideal beach house. While captivating readers with both gorgeous oceanfront properties and beautiful inland gems, he details how to connect a home with its natural surroundings, and in doing so, achieve the relaxed feeling of a beach house, regardless of size or location.
I believe that designing a coastal home is not necessarily about proximity to the sea but about conveying the carefree vibe of life at the beach. COASTAL MODERN: Sophisticated Homes Inspired by the Ocean (Clarkson Potter; April 3, 2012) is the culmination of my fourteen years of designing interiors that are deeply personal to the owners yet evoke that “perfect beach house.”
