looking for: great summer beach houses

Please excuse this quick morning interruption but we’re gathering homes for a limited-edition summer project here at D*S and I thought it would be fun to do a call out so we could include more readers’ homes! Amy, Kate and I were inspired by something we saw during design week at NYC and decided to create a last-minute, special-edition summer project. We’ll be announcing/releasing it in July but until then, we’re on a super quick deadline to gather some last minute elements. One thing we could use your help with is finding a few perfect beach houses to tie everything together. So, if you own a beach home that hasn’t been published yet (or if you’re a designer and have an unpublished beach project) we’d love to see it! Our deadline is two weeks away, so we need homes that could be photographed quickly, but if you have one that fits that bill please drop us a line at SUBMISSIONS at DESIGNSPONGE dot com. Thanks so much! Can’t wait to tell you more about it soon, we’re so excited! xo, grace

    Hi there,
    Sounds like a very tempting project. We own a very small beach house in the netherlands. Actually it is a trailer on the beach, but then styled and kind of luxurous. If I can help you, let me know!

  2. Sadly, no beach house for me ;( Hehe…but I can’t wait to see what you round up for this special edition. The “teaser” shot above already has me hooked!

    We have an old summer home in Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard.

    my mother died last year and we have to sell :(

    I would love to help out. I’m a Naples, Florida interior designer & have several great beach projects I could share with you. My clients information would have to remain confidential, of course, & depending on your time frame I could possibly get you in for a photo shoot or two.
