Maui Beach House Tour

Take a tour of this artist’s beach house on the island of Maui!  It’s a dream of a tropical home, complete with loads of palm trees, swan floats in the pool, and a tiki four poster bed.  Take the tour >

Summer Island Home Tour in Mexico

Get ready to swoon over this Summer island home in Mexico, located on the small island of Holbox or rather Isla Holbox!  I’m sure by now you’ve realized how much I love all things white, especially when it comes to interior design BUT did you also know that I’m a sucker for built in furniture?  Yup, true story!  Built in bookcases and little spots to simple put a vase or family heirloom send me into a heart-eyed stupor.  Not only does this beautiful island home have all of that but it’s available to rent out on Airbnb!!  And aren’t we all just sooo ready to plan that next vacation??  I know I am!

Swooning already!!!

Sydney Beach Cottage

If you like a good open floor plan then you’re going to love this beautiful beach cottage located right near the water in Sydney, Australia.  I especially love the simple wall art crafted from natural materials that the beach cottage is decorated with.  Take a look to see what I’m talking about:

Pool views from the bedroom? Yes, please!!

You can never go wrong with a good window seat!

Check out the wall art, but we haven’t gotten to my favorite piece yet…

Notice the wall art in the far background, don’t worry we’ll take a bit of a closer look later in the post.

I love how this open floor plan allows so many rooms to have a pool-side view

Do we think it’s possible to recreate this wall art with drift wood?

Nantucket Inspired Beach House

This Nantucket inspired beach house is easy breezy with a side of fun!  From swings in the living room to the family motto tiled into the bathroom floors, I love it all.  Oh yeah and lots and lots of white, my personal favorite.  I also have a deep appreciation (being serious!) for the lack of window treatments in this space.  Why obstruct the views?  Do we really need curtains in our kitchens?  I say let the sunshine in!  Check out what this beach house is all about >>

 

Nantucket Inspired Beach House

Really obsessed with those chairs and that ceiling fan!

The kitchen is all white but still feels homey

more curtains, more problems, that’s what I always say…

DIY Nautical Rope Decor : Top 5 for Earth Day

This year I’ve really been trying to reuse, reduce and recycle my home decor in an effort to be kinder to our planet.  With Earth Day around the corner and the whole mess with being quarantined, I thought it would be a good idea to share some DIYs with items I already have laying around the house.  Rope is the one thing I seem to always have since I heavily gravitate towards nautical decor!  Two of my DIYs even use the same batch of rope but in two completely different ways.  Check ’em out:

 

 

DIY Nautical Rope Decor : Top 5 for Earth Day

DIY Nautical Rope Mirror – such a cute way to revamp an old mirror

 

DIY Nautical Rope Decor : Top 5 for Earth Day

DIY Coastal Rope Planter – this one uses the same rope as the tray!

 

 

DIY Nautical Rope Decor : Top 5 for Earth Day

DIY Nautical Knot Rope Garland – this one is Christmas inspired but I honestly would have this garland up in my home all year round!

California Bungalow – Beach House Tour

I’m loving this beach chic California bungalow located in L.A.!  Not only is this beach house beautiful and chic but so is its owner.  I love how clean this house feels while still adding lots of earthy elements like driftwood and wicker.  I also spied some pampas grass which I’ve been meaning to get my hands on.  Take the tour >

Loving everything about this room!

Australian Abode – Effortless Decor on the Water

I love a good white-on-white home!  Especially one that has a few rustic elements, and even better if it’s on the beach!!  But there’s something else I really love about this Australian beach house, which is that it has a court yard with a huge palm tree growing up through it.  Because court yards let you have really big trees in your home without having to worry about silly things like ceilings and roofs.  Check it out:

GORGEOUS!!

I love how there are only a few decor items in this space but it still feels incredibly relaxing

I also wouldn’t mind a bedroom that opens up to the beach, just saying!

Mediterranean Beach House Tour

This Mediterranean beach house is super laid back but still has some lush feels thanks to the gorgeous views.  Every spot looks perfect for napping (fyi the nap factor although rarely mentioned is very important to consider when shopping for a new home or decor!).  Oh yeah and did I mention the ceiling?  You’re like, “what’s up with the ceiling??”  The best way I can explain it is some kind of straw thatching done in a beautiful pattern.  So you have something pretty to look at when you wake up from your nap.  See what this home is all about >

I think I may have mentioned the views!

All White Nantucket Home Tour

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:

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?

Australian Beachside Apartment

I think what I love most about this Australian apartment and what really made me want to share it with you, is that it doesn’t feel like an apartment.  It feels like a very chic beachside bungalow.  Which is really just design at its best!  Because at the heart of it, isn’t design really about making your home feel a certain way?  Whichever way that is for you.  I personally like my home to feel open and breezy, so it’s no surprise that I’m drawn to a lot of white, a lot of windows and more minimalist designs.  This is another reason I love this home!  I would say this apartment hits the coastal minimalism nail on the head.  Take a look:

Loving these beachy bedroom vibes!

I like big plants and I can not lie…

Have I ever mentioned how much I love oversized framed mirrors especially when they have a bit of a rustic or old world charm to them? Well, I do!

I love the kitchen trend of different upper cabinets and lowers

If I ever have open shelving, I pray that it will look this clean and beautiful all the time. Amen.
