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:
You can’t be unhappy with a kitchen like this!
It’s all in the details
Teeny tiny office space with a view!
Once again, loving the details!

I’m in love with this romantic beach wedding I spotted on A Coastal Bride. The wedding took place on Driftwood Beach, located on a small island off the coast of Georgia. True to its name, this beach does not disappoint in trunk-sized pieces of driftwood (that I would love to get my hands on and turn into a coffee table! but that’s besides the point). I love how the bride used oysters throughout the wedding, especially as part of the runner for the table setting! Check it out:
Oyster table runner for the win!
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.

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!
There are so many beachy/nautical details like the posts on this bed
Check out the mermaid knob on the bathroom door!
Loving this bathroom sink!
I love the idea of keeping colorful bowls and glasses out for display
I love the beachy slates and tiny deck on this tiny house!
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.
That trunk is my favorite!
I love the simple coastal details in this bathroom
Island shutters for the win!
