Shop This Home’s Design – The Big Easy

This summer has been amazing for Marnie Custom Homes with so many exciting projects in-progress and on the horizon. For those following our builds and interior design work, I wanted to share another “Shop This” post, detailing the furnishings and selections for one of my favorite luxury beach retreats: The Big Easy.

This home was built in the heart of Bethany Beach just one-and-a-half blocks from the ocean. It’s decorated in a California contemporary style with six bedrooms (three of which are king-size master suites with their own private baths), five-and-a-half baths and two outdoor showers.

The Big Easy features many unique design elements including custom built-ins and molding throughout, reclaimed wood accents, an under-stair relaxation nook and two bunk bed rooms for all the kiddos. The open and bright gourmet kitchen features a Wolf range and oven and two Bosch dishwashers. This house makes family beachside vacations fun and easy.
