Whitstable Travel Guide
With a cool breeze blowing on your face, sun setting over the ocean and a drink in hand, beach house life is easy.
Nina Tolstrup of Studiomama has created a beautiful pared down beach chalet that embodies the essence of vacation. With the house's simple lines and stripped down aesthetic, you can slow down and solely focus on relaxing and getting away from it all. An hour from her home in London, Tolstrup designed this house as a place for her family to escape the city and spend time with each other surrounded by only sand, surf and the ocean view.
At a 388 square feet, the chalet is small, but stocked with all the essentials for living. The interior is constructed of sawn softwood and contains a kitchen, bathroom, spacious living/dining room, sleeping loft and bunk beds for the kids. The exterior is clad in cedar shingles and a large glass window in the back connects indoor to the outdoors.
The Studiomama beach chalet doesn't have a lot of opulent amenities, but sometimes, getting back to simplicity can be the greatest luxury of all. All we need now is a few dozen more of these to enjoy.
