It’s probably no surprise to you that I became obsessed with this small Spanish seaside home! with its turquoise shutters and turquoise doors. #GiveMeAllTheTurquoise I love the bold doorway against the bright white stucco exterior. What more could a girl ask for? Take a look:
This kitchen has me dreaming of open shelving and I’m kinda obsessed with that curtain? too!
I love the mixed prints and patterns of the pillows
Straw hats and baskets oh my!
Rustic headboards will always have a place in my heart ❤

By now I’m sure you’ve realized how much I love a super casual home (and if not, now you do!) I love my home decor to have natural fabrics, pieces that are easy to clean and still look beautiful. I don’t enjoy living rooms that I can’t just plunk myself down in or dining rooms that are only reserved for special occasions. These reasons and many more are why I wanted to share this Australian beach home with you! Take the tour:
This outdoor space is everything!
Bamboo dining chairs? Yes, please!
White kitchens with rustic old cutting boards have my heart.
These straw baskets?/vases? are AWESOME
Bathrooms views of cactus never get old

My latest style obsession is something I like to call, “coastal minimalism”. It takes a minimalist’s approach to the whole coastal home style. Part of why I’m loving it so much is that it’s effortless and allows for more space and light in a home. For that very reason I’ve taken on a huge Spring purge, in order to try and live with less. I started with my closet and literally went through EVERYTHING and was able to get rid of sooo much stuff that I just wasn’t wearing. I’m currently on part 2 of my purge, which means attacking the basement. I’m about half way through it and I’ve already found loads of home decor pieces that just aren’t my current style. My goal is that once I’m done purging my home of the things I don’t care for anymore, I’ll be left with everything that I truly love. When dealing with coastal minimalism, the main focus is on love. Only having items in your home that you adore and tossing out the rest. So if you love it, keep it but if you bought a vase just to fill a space on a shelf, then it’s time for it to go. Check out some more examples of coastal minimalism and gather some ideas from this beach home in Costa Mesa, CA.
Gain more space on an entryway table by placing sconces on the wall instead of table lamps. Also having just a few items that you love instead of filling the entire table, gives you room to unload as you walk in the door.
Placing plants in white or glass containers allows you to bring in pops of color while still leaving the room with an airy feel.
Don’t overcrowd a space with more places to seat than you really need. Being able to walk through a room without bumping into furniture can be a luxury in today’s world.
Bringing in elements like wicker, sea grass and rattan help incorporate a coastal feel with minimal pieces.
Not overcrowding the kitchen sink. When was the last time you only had one or two items surrounding the kitchen sink? I’m completely guilty of hoarding plants and fun antiques in my kitchen! oops!
An island that you don’t have to clear off before cooking, sounds nice!
You’ll notice that the colors don’t change much from room to room. Lots of white, pops of sea blues, mixed with greys and natural elements.
Stripes are a must in a coastal home!

It’s that time of the year again, to repot or newly pot our lovely little plant babies. I personally like to give them some cute outfits to wear. Which is why I recently picked up one of these seafoam pots from Anthropolgie. (see below) It fits right in with my coastal turquoise home and I love the combo of polished and rough textures that this pot offers. Check it out along with some of my other top coastal planters for Spring!
So technically this isn’t exactly a “shack” but it is a gorgeous white beach house that you won’t want to miss seeing! I love the openness of the space and how light-filled it is with just a few pops of yellow and aqua. This is a really fun and simple beach home. I’ve spotted a few pieces that I’d love to have in my own home and even some ways that I can rearrange the items I already have to up my beachy home vibes! Take the tour:
That fridge is the cutest!!
Aqua lights in the kitchen? Yes please!
I love using cutting boards as practical decor
This instantly got me wondering if I had any chairs I could spray paint aqua…
