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:
This bench has my heart!
Another obsession I have is with inlay furniture. This blue and white piece is too good!
I love all the blue and white pottery!!
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!
a little closeup of the entry way – notice the rope-like mirror, this is a theme throughout the house
In love with these rope mirrors and lobster wallpaper!!
This simple set up makes my heart swoon
I love the coastal blue walls and shiplap ceiling
My new life’s mission is to find myself some anchor sheets stat!
If you love coastal living rooms as much as I do, this would be a very easy one to recreate. There’s only a few key elements but they make magic when they come together!

Last month I shared a Winter Beach Wedding with you, which I loved! It was filled with wintery whites and coastal blues. It was a simpler kind of wedding which is completely different from this one I’m about to show you. This Hawaii beach wedding has a lot more glitz + glam. Imagine lights strung from palm trees, oodles of sequins and let’s not forget the glitter! Oh and you can’t beat that amazing Hawaiian back drop. Take a look:

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!
I love the Spanish feel of this home
A very tiny oven for a very tiny home!
I could easily survive rustic and no electricity for a view like that!
Like I said, no neighbors in sight!
