Rosemary Beach in the Florida Panhandle

Location

Eight miles from the town of Seaside on northwest Florida’s gulf coast.

Painting the town



Named for the wild rosemary that grows throughout this 107-acre project, Rosemary Beach eschews typical Florida pastels in favor of earthy tones. “Our natural color scheme is taken from the landscape,” says town architect Richard Gibbs. “The gray and brown homes are the colors of native scrubs and indigenous trees.”
