Like anything else design-related architecture has its own trends and one that I have been noticing more and more lately are Alys Beach inspires rooflines. Alys Beach is an upscale beach community in Florida that is best known for its European feel -thing Santorini, Greece with tons of white homes, peacock pavers, and crystal blue water. Is sounds pretty dreamy doesn't it? One of the architectural styles that is consistent in the homes in Alys Beach are sculptural rooflines and doorways. The roofs are often time "front facing" with an almost scalloped detail that lends itself to a moroccan-style influence. Pair that with a very neutral (mostly white) color palette and you have yourself an undeniable signature trend.
I was driving through a residential area here in nashville earlier this week and noticed a new home (still under construction even) had the Alys Beach signature roofline detail. Once I noticed that house I started noting this trend more and more on newer homes throughout the week. It is interesting to me that this beach house style would have made its way beyone the shore to the suburbs of Nashville. I think this new trend in architecture is absolutely gorgeous and I am excited to see how some of these homes add their own "Nashville" touch to this style.
