HARRISON HOUSE – West Gulf Beaches
It’s as though seaside colors are washed by sunlight to their most delicate hues: palest aqua, purified azure, translucent mint green. In the window-walled great room and kitchen, these accent colors against white and sand-beige set a serene spell. Richly natural are the tabby-faced fireplace, reclaimed pine dining table with wall-bench seating, and distressed oak floors (vinyl, unbelievably). Through the glass, a covered deck invites with deep-cushioned, curved-back rattan seating. And beyond—green lawn, blue bay, boardwalk, boat. The master suite and one guest master are downstairs. Upstairs, elegant simplicity still prevails, with pleasing color departures in a navy wall, bold stripes, and a red-white-and blue bunk room. Lovely bath details include herringbone tile, multicolor iridescent tile, pale smooth-pebble shower floor. This is a house for deep, tranquil, happy breaths.
