This brand-new house gets lived-in personality from walls covered in horizontal shiplap planking. Whitewashed for a casual look and coated with polyurethane to protect the finish, Tarpon Run’s planked walls evoke the ageless character of old Gulf-front beach houses. The horizontal lines mimic the outside railings and add texture to the large living spaces.
A window-filled alcove functions like a dining room with a casual table, two slipcovered end chairs, and a pillow-topped banquette. The built-in bench and wall of windows make this small space seem much larger. Two vintage light fixtures, hung with nautical rope instead of standard chains, illuminate the space.
