Idea House 2017 | Second Floor Tour

Heading upstairs, visitors will find an open, airy common space that branches off into two distinct guest bedrooms, and a shared bath with laundry en suite

Light-Filled Landing

Expertly crafted Chippendale railings lead upstairs, creating a grand entrance to the second-floor common area of the 2017 TOH Beach House. Plenty of windows and bright colors work together to create an inviting common space, and a surprising pop of bubble-gum pink in the hand-woven rug adds a fun vibe. Watch the time-lapse video and see Sweenor Builders create these gorgeous railings here!

The “Pink Room”

The Bohemian chic bedding was the catalyst for the design of this room. Taking a cue from the arrows and feathers motif, we incorporated arrow stencils and feather art, along with plenty of pillows and brightly colored accents to create a fun, funky vibe.
