I’m excited to share this Hawaiian beach cottage with you! It’s nestled in among age-old trees and tropical fauna. Before you even walk through the front door, you know this is going to be a beautiful home. Take a walk through:
You’ll notice there are plenty of areas in this home to lounge around with friends or use as reading nooks
Like this one for example, such a sweet reading nook!
I’m obsessed with the pitched ceiling!
I think I need some oars hanging on my living room walls
I spy another reading nook and a gorgeous antique safe
Lots of gorgeous brass fixtures in this home as well
Today I’m sharing this Texas beach house with you. It’s located in Galveston, Texas which if you’re not aware, is an island city off the coast of the lone star state. This Texas beach house presents itself with a clean beachy vibe. It’s filled with lots of white, lots of shiplap (swoon!) and loads of natural elements. The owners did an amazing job at renovating and redecorating!! I even love that they used wood tiles in the bathroom. Check it out:
Did you notice the shiplap island?
and that insane shiplap wall?
and of course more shiplap in the bedroom…
LOVE this sitting area!
Notice the floors?
Driftwood mirror? Yes, please!
Lately I’ve been in the mood for less; less stuff, less clutter, just less. Give me more air to breathe, more space and more white. Oh yes! Bring on white everything!! White for a new year and fresh start. Which is probably why I fell in love with this minimalist home in Montauk. Who knew a place like this even existed in Montauk? This beach house has a little something for everyone! Even if you’re not a minimalist, you are bound to fall in love with the bathroom. Don’t miss it! >>
Loving these door handles!!
OBSESSED! This is the shower of my dreams!!

As we approach the New Year I thought a countdown seemed appropriate. So today I’m sharing a countdown of my top 5 favorite tiny houses. If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time, you’ve probably noticed that I have a penchant for these little homes! If you scroll down to #1, you’ll see the tiny house that started my love of tiny houses. Also click any pic to take the full tour of your favorite tiny house!
#4: Tiny Beach House – This one is filled with lots of nautical decor, Wait till you see what the bed posts are made out of!
#1: A Tree House in Brooklyn – This is what started my love of tiny houses. Technically this isn’t a “home” because there’s no bathroom or kitchen but this was the house that alerted me to the tiny trend.
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 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!

I always love to try and put a coastal spin on holiday decorations. That way the decorations fit right in with my turquoise home instead of sticking out. For a little added inspiration this year, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite coastal Fall tablescapes! Check ’em out:
via Breezy Designs – this chick really knows what she’s doing and I’m always in awe of her lovely home
Painted pumpkins are always a good idea
I love the mix of coral and turquoise at this table
All white with some pops of greenery, I love it
Using small pumpkins as place holders is such a sweet idea
Last year these pastel pumpkins were a huge hit, I’ve already started looking early for them this year
Blogger of livelaughrowe.com shares this simple fall tablescape with rustic flare and offers a free printable bookmark to use at each place setting.
