The Spirit of Family
SEASIDE HOUSES is a gloriously illustrated homage to family summers by the sea around the world, capturing the romance and nostalgia of life by the ocean.
SEASIDE HOUSES is a celebration of the casual, relaxed way of life at the seashore, the Sunday picnics, the beach barbeques, the croquet tournaments, the traditions passed down through generations, within the comfort and charm of family seaside homes. From the beaches of California to those in the South of France, on the English coast and Scandinavia, a timeless way of life has evolved around those homes, where children, parents and friends come together year after year. All have been built and personally decorated with comfort and simplicity in mind. Jerome Darblay's evocative photographs and the very personal text recreate life as it is lived by those families in revealing detail.
