California Beach House Tour

One thing I really love about a good beach house is the simplicity of it.  Who needs a lot of “stuff” when you are surrounded by such amazing views?!  Take for instance the teeny tiny office in this space (picture 5).  It is literally a desk, a chair, a plant, and a laptop squished into something the size of a coat closet, BUT it works!   It works because there’s a floor to ceiling window looking out onto the waves that beautifully lets the light in.  I could easily do a closet sized office with views like that.  Take a peek below at what the rest of this California beach house has to offer:

Coastal Thanksgiving Inspiration

Who else has already started planning their coastal tablescape for Thanksgiving?  I actually started planning three or four weeks ago.  I blame this on my type A personality and some weird need inside me that wants everything to be perfect.  ugh!  Any-hoo, I thought I would share my coastal Thanksgiving inspiration with you because tablescapes are hard or at least I find them challenging and it’s nice to have something to guide the whole process along.  Take a peek:

Tiny Beach House Tour

Once again I’m sharing my love for a tiny house.  This one is like a mini beach cottage on wheels!!  It stands with only a mere 150 square feet of living space but all 150 square feet are adorable.  I spotted this tiny beach house on Tiny House Town.  You can actually rent it (click link to see rental details).  Which might be a good idea  to test drive, if you were seriously considering buying a tiny house.  Scroll down to check out this tiny beach house!

Sullivan’s Island Beach House Tour

I’m in love with this beach house located on Sullivan’s Island in South Carolina!!  I especially love all the coastal details, like the acrylic trunk in the living room filled with large seashells and driftwood.  This idea would be so easy to include in your own home and would make an amazing coffee table!  Check it out:

I love the use of natural elements, i.e. lots of wicker furniture and plants in this beach house.

7 Coastal Fall Tablescapes

I always love to try and put a coastal spin on holiday decorations.  That way the decorations fit right in with my turquoise home instead of sticking out.  For a little added inspiration this year, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite coastal Fall tablescapes!  Check ’em out:

Pink Beach Cottage Tour

Because what girl doesn’t want to live in a tiny pink cottage on a beach in the Bahamas?!  This place is so adorable.  I’ve long advocated my love of tiny homes and while I wouldn’t call this “tiny” it does have a small home feel.  There’s a coziness here that’s created with a variety of textures (lots of wicker!) and beachy shades of aquas and blues.  Scroll down to take the tour!
