If you love all things shiplap, dutch doors, and stripes then this nautical beach house is for you! I’ve expressed my love of dutch doors before in this Coastal Home post, and just like my love of tiny houses, my love for dutch doors is never ending. I think my love for this style door comes from the fact that you really need to live somewhere warm and sunny if you plan on getting any real use out of it. Also if I’ve never told you how much I love shiplap, let me take a minute… or two. Being the nautical lover that I am, I gravitate towards stripes. I feel like shiplap is the stripe lover’s architectural equivalent. The bonus of shiplap, if you happen to love stripes too, is that it’s a sort of neutral stripe. Therefore, you can layer other stripes (think pillows and fabrics) on top of stripes (aka shiplap). It’s an abundance of stripes, and I’m loving it!
Dutch door love!
