Carillon Beach Private Residence

A Cozy home surrounded by brilliant ocean views!

Natural light determined the outcome of this dreamy beachside home in Carillon Beach. The collaborative enthusiasm of Chris and Erika Himes was a refreshing experience as Mrs. Himes named all the rooms for their children and defined vital details for her “dream beach home.” Impressive visual features are mirrors reflecting the stunning southern light and panoramic coastal views, a dining room custom cabinet displaying the extensive coral collection with natural wood beams accenting the ceilings while augmenting the cozy welcoming atmosphere.

The living room’s lime-washed brick gives the home a feeling of warmth and rustic appeal, while the sloping curved lines of the fireplace mimic the home’s architectural style inspired by the West Indies and Cape Dutch influences. Special touches of Venetian plaster walls give a soft reflective quality, in contrast to the visually spectacular ceiling oak wood beams. In the master bedroom, additional placement of the stained wood-hipped beams defines the ceiling, and the painted wood ceiling adds a coastal elegance along with the master bath of pristine white marble and fixtures facing the ocean views. From the interior undulating acid-washed iron railings to the minute detail and patina of the brass fountain fixtures affected by the ocean’s salt air mist sets off the dipping pool and view to the emerald-blue ocean.

This home’s architectural lines and details create a gathering place for fun-filled memories!
