Days by the beach mean relaxation and a chance to swim and sunbathe. It's a laid-back existence, far from the pressures of modern living. Although life is more casual in the luxury beach houses of this lavishly illustrated volume, it's still very sophisticated. These select ocean-side living spaces show that you really can have it all. A sumptuous array of interiors and exteriors will inspire you to create an idyllic beach retreat, or give your own waterfront abode an overhaul. Of course, this book is also for daydreamers content just to imagine their own castle by the sands? Cristina Paredes lives and works in Barcelona, where she graduated with a degree in Fine Arts.
