Designed to keep sand and soil outside, a secondary entrance located conveniently adjacent to the driveway and garage opens into a laundry room, where one can clean up after a day at the beach.
Hard-working yet stylish, the laundry room makes a designer statement. Vibrant green walls connect to lush side yard views and a Jacksonville Beach, Fla., street light banner doubles as artwork.
Energy-efficient appliances are tucked conveniently under counter; the muted titanium finish lends a modern sensibility.
A window bench offers a cozy spot to stop and kick off flip-flops and stow them in hand-molded rattan baskets before entering the kitchen. A garden stool may double as a laptop computer stand.
A series of black-and-white photos, captured by photographer Eric Perry, features local Jacksonville Beach surfers.
A pocket door opens to reveal an adjoining pantry/closet, which offers space to store beach gear and accessories, plus cleaning supplies and dry goods.
Both stylish and functional, polished quartz countertops offer ample space to fold laundry.
A touch of luxury on the countertop, a mercury-glass table lamp shines a spotlight on projects and hints at the home's luxe Hollywood regency design details.
