Sardinia Beach House Tour

Sardinia, a small island off the coast of Italy is home to this amazing rustic beach house.  Almost every room in the home has a 180 degree view!  (With pretty fabulous views I might add)  Depending on what room your in, you might get a look at the beautiful turquoise waters, or growing grape vines by the in-ground pool.  The owners spared no expense with the furniture, importing doors from India and sofas from other parts of the world.  There’s even a sofa made entirely of rustic logs that you must check out below!

Doorways had to be expanded to fit the antique doors from India

Confession : I’m obsessed with these antique turquoise seltzer bottles! I even have one in my own home.

Tropical Brazilian Home Tour

There are some homes when you first walk, you know are going to be special.  Needless to say, that this Brazilian home belonging to none other than the Anderson Cooper is one of those homes!  My heart skipped a beat from the very first time I laid eyes on it.   Weathered kitchen cabinets, exposed beams, and pops of blues and turquoise are just a few of the things that had me “oooh-ing” and “awing”.  Enjoy the tour >

Tour this Summer Island Home

This charming island home is located on Stradbroke Island, Australia.  (also known as “Straddie) It’s filled with coastal vibes and seaside treasures.  My biggest obsession with this home however, sits right on the front porch.  It’s a distressed and painted wooden bench.  (see below in pictures 3 + 4)  There’s just something about distressed wooden furniture that makes me swoon!   Take a look:

Tour this Nautical Beach House

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!

A Very Tiny Beach House

Over the past several months I’ve been sharing my tiny house obsession with you.  Whether it’s a house boat or just a tiny seaside home, it’s safe to say I’m in love!  This latest tiny house that I’ve come across is a little more rustic than the last two.  It’s located in Uruguay and it’s so far off the beaten path that there really is no path or driveway for that matter.  You literally have to go off-roading to get to your front door.  For some reason this makes my heart swoon even more.  I imagine you don’t have too many neighbors in an area where you have to cross sand dunes to get to your beach house!  Oh and did I mention that it doesn’t have any electricity? but it does seem to have plumbing and there’s always candlelight and bonfires.  Take a peek:

I have my eye on that hammock!

How to Style a Coastal Thanksgiving Table

I’m so in love with this coastal Thanksgiving table from Sand & Sisal, that I thought I would show you how easy it is to recreate!  Not only is it incredible easy but pretty low cost since most items are natural.  Take a look:

I linked the items I had a harder time finding but you could pick up most of these items at a craft store.  Also check out this coastal wreath I’m obsessing over!

Southampton Coastal Home Tour

There are many words that can be used to describe this home in Southampton; nautical, coastal, beach chic but the word that keeps popping into my head is grown-up.  This is something I feel I’ve had a hard time achieving in my own home.  Not to say that my home looks childish, just that it looks very on point for a young woman in her 30’s to be living there.  When I say that this Southampton home looks grown-up I think what I’m really saying is that the decorator of the home has a very mature decorating style.  Something one day I hope to have!

There is so much in this photo that I love! Dutch doors, driftwood table, secret bookcase/door!!!

One thing I’ve noticed about “grown-up” homes is that they usually have substantial sized frames around their artwork.

I love the nautical ceiling lights in this space paired with shiplap ceilings and bay window!

Are you beginning to see what I mean with the frames?

I love this little dressing room to have before or after you pop out to the beach

I’m not sure what these floors are made of but I love the color and smooth texture of them!
