Inhale deeply: no, that’s not the smell of a book, that’s the delicate scent of the ocean’s breeze. You have been whisked off on a journey through the world’s loveliest seaside homes and perhaps (no promises) you’re never coming back... Relax into the lazy pace of living by the water while you soak up our selection of delectable coastal interiors from all five continents. Highlights include a Martha’s Vineyard mansion, a Knokke apartment designed by minimal architect Vincent van Duysen, the Kjærholm house in Denmark, the domicile of Fiona Swarovski in Capri, the Lautner-designed Marbrisa residence in Mexican Acapulco, and a house in Iporanga, Brazil by architect Isay Weinfeld. From minimalist to cozy, from ethnic to modern, these homes all share a love for the deep blue.
