Belgard is proud to once again partner with Coastal Living magazine as a sponsor of the 2017 Coastal Living Idea House, located in the historic New England town of Newport, Rhode Island. The bay-front home boasts amazing panoramic waterfront views and is packed with classic style, smart decorating ideas and a trove of seaside inspiration. As the official hardscapes sponsor, we are excited to offer you this virtual tour of some of the home’s more than 1,000 square feet of outdoor living spaces.
Step up to this welcoming front porch by way of the lovely Belgard walkway. The featured paver chosen for the Newport Idea House is our new Provence® Slab, which utilizes the innovative Satura™ color technology to offer the most realistic look and feel of natural stone available in a manufactured paver. To complement the blue color theme used throughout the interior and exterior of the home, the designers chose the Shenandoah Blue paver color, which emulates the look of natural bluestone and includes variegations of brown tones to coordinate with the home’s taupe siding. The paver sizes were varied and laid at a 45-degree bias to add a formal touch to what are otherwise casual outdoor living spaces.
Next, step onto the rear terrace, which includes multiple lounging areas, a dining area and a pool. Striped fabrics and vibrant blue pillows pair with crisp white wicker to create a nautical ambiance.
Lastly, join us on the charming fire pit patio. A circular design of rustic Bergerac® pavers centers on a Countryside Fire Pit, beckoning guests to gather and share fireside chats while taking in the breathtaking view of Easton Bay.
The home is currently open for tours Thursdays through Sundays through September 4, 2017. For more information on dates and times, click here. To virtually explore the interior spaces of this amazing home, visit the 2017 Coastal Living Idea House web page.
Today is National S’mores Day, so get ready for some ooey, gooey, chocolatey goodness. In honor of this delectable treat, we picked today to kick off our contest to win a fabulous Belgard Fire Pit!
Fire pits have become one of the fastest growing trends in outdoor living design, and with good reason. They appeal to people of all ages and instantly become everyone’s favorite gathering spot. Fire pits have the magical ability to break down generational barriers as everyone gathers around the flames, sharing remembrances while creating new ones. It just so happens that many of those memories include roasting marshmallows, which is why we chose to celebrate National S’mores Day with a fire pit giveaway.
As part of the fire pit giveaway contest, we’re collecting s’mores recipes and fireside memories from people around the nation to share with our blog readers. We all know the classic s’mores recipe of a roasted marshmallow sandwiched with milk chocolate and graham crackers, but maybe your family has come up with a new twist — like using Andes mint chocolates or peppermint bark. If you’ve tried a fun variation, we’d love to hear about it. We’d also love to share some of those fireside memories that make gathering around a fire such a meaningful pastime.
The contest ends August 31, so click the link below to enter today!
This year’s Southern Living Idea House is located on picturesque Bald Head Island, North Carolina, a car-free barrier island that is accessible only by boat — located about 35 miles south of Wilmington, North Carolina, and 70 miles north of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. A true coastal retreat, the island is bordered by the Cape Fear River to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. Nearly 10,000 of the island’s 12,000 acres remain as a preservation easement. The porch-surrounded homes on the island rest quietly on sand dunes beneath a canopy of trees and moss. Located on a wooded homesite bordering The Common in Cape Fear Station on Bald Head Island, the Idea House is just a short walk from the island’s distinctive Southern Living community.
Designed to have stunning views from every room, the interior of the home focuses on comfort, with an emphasis on natural materials and pops of color that continue to the outdoor design. The open floorplan boast a wall of double doors that open to the back porch to create a seamless integration between the indoor and outdoor living spaces. Bifold windows also open from the kitchen out onto a bar on the porch as a continuation of the indoor/outdoor experience.
Over 1,300 square feet of outdoor living space is provided by ample porches that span both floors of the rear of the home, plus an adjacent outdoor deck and a welcoming fire pit patio.
The home is currently open for tours through October with tours available on Wednesday through Sunday each week through the end of August, and Saturday or Sunday tours available during September and October. To book a tours of the Idea House, visit Ideahousebhi.com.
