Visit an Interior Designer’s Beautiful Beach House Retreat

Interior designer Karen Wolf spent her childhood visiting Long Beach Island, New Jersey, with her family. Now with kids of her own, she’s been keeping up the tradition. “It has a really soft spot in my heart,” she says.

To ensure the nostalgic destination stays in the family, she recently designed a relaxing new beach house retreat for everyone to use, including her parents. She embraced local coastal colors like sandy beiges, watery blues and creamy whites to give the vacation home a soothing ambiance. She then turned to durable materials such as porcelain and glass that can hold up to beach life. A cohesive color palette, layers of organic textures and timeless details create a welcoming getaway for generations to come.

Absolutely beautiful and calming. Loved the gorgeous color palette, so subtle. Beachy, but definitely not cutesy. You do gorgeous work.

I would like to know who makes the counter stools as well! Gorgeous remodel! So special that Karen Wolf was able to create such a beautiful space for her parents. I loved hearing her story!

So many things to like about this home! Only wish to have seen the bathrooms too! Wondered about source of bedspread, throw pillows, color and type of carpet in parent bedroom?

Great idea for painting a color in cabinet backs- dishes stand out more!

Love all of the hanging light fixtures- so fun!

Can you tell me who makes the back splash tile and your dining chairs - we have a lake house in Nebraska.

I simply love the 4 chairs that are next to the kitchen island! So beachy but so stylish. Can you tell me the manufacturer? Thank you!

If you were going for “beachy + restful” you nailed it! Every room is inviting and cozy. It should be in any design book under “How To Do a Beach House.” Bravo.

Really beautiful and relaxing space. I'm obsessing over the swivel chairs! Can they be purchased?

Absolutely wonderful space. Fantastic job Karen! The colors are so calming. Love the open concept and your taste in decorating. We recently built a beach house in the Caribbean - open concept as well. Friends and family love the fact that during visits, we are not quartered into into individual rooms. Because of our love for the blues of the Caribbean Sea and the beautiful yellows of the sunset, we opted for a combination of blue and yellow accents with wicker furniture. Great ideas from Karen for two unfinished suites on the lower level. Thanks for sharing Karen! Wish you success with your on going projects.

Where did you get the bar stools, dining chairs, and the weathered wood side table in the living room? I have been looking for items like this, and cannot find anything.
