Sand floors, seriously, I am so into it! On my way to the beach and back home with a truck full of sand! A sand covered floor is great for many reasons, well for one you don’t have to worry about mopping or tracking dirt in from the outdoors, who needs a rug? All you need is your bathing suit, a good book, the sound of waves and a heat lamp voila your at the beach! Okay, obviously daydreaming. However This is a great and inspirational project featured in the international projects issue of Elle Decor, “Beyond the Beach”, photography by Gaella le Boulicaut. I would love to stay at this cool and chic Beach front home in Lisbon Portugal but alas it’s a private compound. Design is by architect Manuel Aires Mateus for client Joao Miguel Rodriguez.
