Beaulieu House by the SeaCountry Entrance, Wiltshire
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Discover the beauty of symmetryThere’s something about a perfectly symmetrical doorway that adds instant grandeur. A pair of matching lights, plants or accessories flanking the door create a look that’s refined and preened to perfection. Keep it simple and elegant by choosing shaped evergreen plants, like the bay trees here.
Smarten up coastal style Fresh, light-reflecting white woodwork is an key element for creating the coastal look – and this seaside home does just that, while swerving all the clichés. Rather than adding decorative anchors or plants potted in beach buckets (though there’s a place for both), the owners have gone for grown-up elegance. There are matching bay trees, smartly potted; classic beach hut wood panelling, but painted in a neutral shade for a grown-up twist; and hurricane lamp-style lights, but paired and wall-mounted for a more classic look. The result is crisp, fresh and smart.Explore more ways to transform your home’s kerb appeal
