Irresistible interiors that capture the essence of seaside living.
Everyone dreams of a house by the sea, and this book presents the best examples of homes for escaping to the serenity of the seaside. Beautifully photographed interiors, exteriors, gardens, and patios offer a peek into these appealing homes, including Martha Stewart’s Seal Harbor, Maine, residence, Donna Karan’s Zen-like East Hampton retreat, Tommy Hilfiger’s Pop art–inspired Miami house, and Giorgio Armani’s Antigua getaway. Such top designers as Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Steven Gambrel, and Ken Fulk have decorated these lovely and inspiring homes—in quintessential seaside communities, including Block Island, Harbor Island, Malibu, and Martha’s Vineyard.
A seaside house is a place to unwind in a relaxed setting—white floorboards, whimsical nautical touches, pastel tones, and vivid colors. Indoor-outdoor living is the norm. Yet it is also a place to entertain friends and family in style and can express a range of chic decorating and design tastes. From clean, modern beach houses to traditional-style cottages, these breathtaking interiors—presented by a team known for style and taste—will inspire homeowners, designers, and anyone who loves a water view.

Subject is a perennial favorite, with the success of such titles as Cottages by the Sea, Rooms to Inspire by the Sea, and Tropical Modern.

“Even if you’re not yet furnishing a deluxe waterfront getaway, you can still incorporate a little coastal zen into your life, right? And this book highlights houses you don’t want to miss, including those belonging to Martha Stewart’s getaway in Maine and Tommy Hilfiger’s Miami villa. So whether you’re seriously into nautical knick-knacks or just want to zone out to some pretty pictures of blue water, get this book.” 

A look inside each property will have you dreaming of taking a vacation…or perhaps making a permanent move. In the meantime, here are five things you can incorporate into your current home—whether it’s on the water or landlocked—to make it feel like a blissful beach house.” 

“Photographer Douglas Friedman perfectly captures the allure of waterfront living in this recent release, which includes beachside homes in La Jolla and Malibu.”
California Style Magazine

“In his first-ever book, The Seaside House: Living on the Water (Rizzoli), he [Photographer Douglas Friedman] gives us a glimpse behind the doors and hedges of some of the most luxe retreats in the world: the beach homes where members of his A-list tribe (Martha Stewart, Kelly Klein) go when they’re looking to unplug.”
Tory Burch Blog

“Simplicity — or at least a desire to escape the complexities of city living — often leads homeowners to the sea, as richly rendered in Douglas Friedman’s photographs for “The Seaside House: Living on the Water,” by Nick Voulgaris III.”
The New York Times
