Recently a good friend made the move to Maui (from the east coast!) and ever since then I’ve been Hawaii dreaming. You can bet your bottom seashell I’m going to go visit her. Apparently she has avocado trees growing in her backyard. Anyhoo, her newest adventure got me thinking about what life would be like living on Maui. So I decided to do a little research into what a Maui beach home is like. (And it did not disappoint!)
Talk about curb appeal!
I’m swooning over that light and those views!!
I’m in love with the beach boho vibes of this home. Oh yeah, did you notice the driftwood table lamp? I’m in love with that too
Can they Air Bnb their home? I need to stay here!
Views you can only get in Maui!!

One thing I love about a good beach house, besides the ocean views, is the salty breeze that gently flows through your home. This minimalist beach house in Malibu takes full advantage of not only the views but salty air as well.
I’ve said this before, and I’ll probably say it a million more times, I always prefer a beach house with less stuff. You don’t need a lot of stuff when you have a home on the beach, because who wants to take away from the ocean views? Now that I’ve said my peace! Feel free to take a tour through this gorgeous minimalist beach house.
Making the most of the views!

I’ve talked before about my love for all white homes and I think this one really hits the spot! The designers purposely added white ceilings, white walls and white floors as a chance to allow the furniture and design to pop. Natural wood pieces were added to keep the feel of the home warm. Located on the island of Nantucket, this coastal Summer home offers lots of easy breezy beach feels. Take a peek:
all white, all day
I don’t think there’s one thing about this room that I don’t love!
I feel like the all white room really makes this nautical painting pop. Also I’m in love with that barrel planter! DIY?
I love that this bathroom is bold and and colorful but still feels airy and light
I think this is one of the rooms you really notice how the wood tones warm the room
