The VIE Beach House Debuts

Discover Our 2021 Show Home

By Lisa Marie Burwell

Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. —Psalm 127

When Suzy Accola, the owner and designer of Q Tile + Design Studio, approached me over a year ago to team up with her and her husband, Jim Accola, the owner of Coastal Elements Construction, for a second VIE show home in Seagrove Beach, Florida, I was excited about the possibilities. Our first show home partnership in 2013, Maison de VIE: The House of Life located in WaterColor, Florida, was memorable and impactful for the magazine as our readers love a show home for inspiration ideas. With a Great Gatsby–inspired cover photo shoot and feature complete with a themed party channeling the 1920s, we celebrated the home’s completion in style. We branded the 2021 show home “The VIE Beach House” as it truly is a celebration of the lifestyle on and around Scenic Highway 30-A, and the Accolas had a clear vision for what they wanted to create. The home feels very fresh and new with an interesting perspective on living by the beach, as you will see when you turn the pages of this issue.

We held a ground breaking and house blessing in January of 2020 to consecrate this endeavor under the wings of Psalm 27. We were blind to the fact the worldwide pandemic would arrive only six weeks later.

The grand plan to present a show home to our readers with an opening party and tour was derailed as COVID-19 made its presence known, creating unforeseen challenges for all of us to endure. We were also met with delays thanks to the virus, but we forged ahead to bring you the VIE Beach House. Now we get to marvel at the craftsmanship of the architecture by Greg Jazayeri, the construction by Coastal Elements, the spectacular custom tile, lighting, and design by Q Tile + Design Studio, the furnishings and decor by Lovelace Interiors, Betsey Mosby Interior Design, and Summer House Lifestyle, the photographic art by Jonah Allen Studio, the copper lanterns by Bevolo Gas & Electric Lights, the indoor and outdoor furnishings and accessories by Maison30a Home + Garden, the windows and exterior doors by Frank’s Cash and Carry, and much more. The home is truly a stunning collaboration of art and design.

James Watts with The Beach Group represented the sale of the home, and it was with great pleasure that the developers were able to donate a portion of that sale to community nonprofits Food For Thought and The Sonder Project. We are thrilled to know that the family now residing in the home completes the story we began—from an idea through construction to the completion of the home that will now be lived in and loved. We hope and pray that the new owners have a special blessing on their home as a testament to all the hard work and love that went into making it.

We have chronicled this journey through film—from the ground breaking to completion—with a documentary entitled The Making of a Show Home. Look for it soon on VIEmagazine.com and our social media platforms.

We thank and appreciate the many other sponsors and participants not listed here who are found within the pages of this issue. We could not have done this without you!

To Life!
