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:

Beach Babe Style

I know it’s only February but already I’m spotting so many cute Summer dresses and beach cover-ups!  I’ve been noticing a trend of the loose hanging dresses / cover-ups that give off a laid-back beach vibe.  (see pics 2 + 4 below)  I’ve also spotted some shorter ones that I fell in love with.  I’m going to try and find more to show you because this look is so cute!  These pics are from a recent photo shoot for Grazia Australia that I found on FGR.

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!

Dutch door love!

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!

Hawaii Beach Wedding

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:

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:
