Today I’m sharing this très chic beach house located on Long Island, NY. It’s a 70’s bungalow located right on the water and I love how the owners used a navy and white color theme throughout! Also did I mention the super cute Adirondack chairs?? Check it out:
Crazy in love with this wallpaper choice!!
Eyeing that bench!
and those views!
I love how the sunflowers make this room really pop
I love these chairs! They remind me of the ones in french cafes.
The cuteness is real!!!

This little beach house on the Amalfi Coast hits all the right spots in a big way! The interior design of the beach house is kept light and open, punctuated with wicker vases and sea creatures. Oh yeah, and did I mention the views?!! Get ready to fall in love, as this beach house is chiseled into a cliff overlooking the sea.
I love the woven shades used throughout the home
& all the open shelving!
Get ready for the views!
Petite bedroom located upstairs overlooks the sea from above the tree line.
This sweet little outdoor space with tree and hammock
You can’t beat those views!
Now we head down to the pool
I love how beach lovers know no bounds when it comes to building homes seaside! “Oh what’s that? A super dangerous and rocky cliff, yeah we can chisel into that and build you a beach house no problem”.

Today I’m going to walk you through step-by-step how to beach-up your home. Even if you don’t live by the sea, it’s super easy to get that breezy beach vibe flowing through your house. Chances are, if you’re anything like me, you already have a lot of the elements needed for a coastal design. It’s just all about how you put the look together and finish everything off!
Let’s start with fabrics. Using more natural fibers like linen and wicker around your home can make it feel more connected to nature i.e. the sea
Incorporate sea shells as trinket dishes on coffee tables or in bookcases.
Bring in the scent of the sea through coastal soaps, candles and essential oil diffusers.
Weathered wood fits perfectly into a beach home and it’s super easy to distress a piece you already have with some white wash and sand-paper.
The bedroom is another great place to add more natural fabrics, a linen throw and simple striped pillows add just the right touch.
If your beach home doesn’t have beach views, consider adding beach prints instead!
Soft blue hues on cabinets offer reminders of the sea
Now let’s take a look at the outside of your home. If you’ve got room for outdoor seating make sure you take advantage of it!
A cozy spot in the shade, surrounded by plants and still maintaining that breezy-beach vibe through striped pillows and wicker seating.
Dutch doors and weathered stoops feel super coastal. If you rent or are afraid to saw your door in half, don’t worry! Just add a beachy doormat and some plants to beach-up your entrance.

Have you ever seen someone’s home and wished you could shop it? Like, “Hey girl! How much for that sofa and those lamp shades?”. That’s the feeling I got when I first saw Heidi Correa’s beach house in Palm Beach. I wanted one of everything! Let me walk you through my shopping extravaganza…

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 >
Loving all the colors in this bedroom and of course also loving that tiki bed frame!
the artist’s studio
Is it even a pool if you don’t have a couple of swan floats???
I love the idea of having plants in your fountain!
a Buddha to bid you hello and goodbye

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!
No matter where you look, always a gorgeous view!
Built in kitchen cabinets? Yes, please!
I spy a built in bookcase…
…and there it is in all it’s glory! Also really loving the rustic closet ❤
rustic + white = love
The perfect wine/reading nook
Also hammocks are my joie de vivre!
rooftop hangs at sunset
And what island home would be complete without a beach?!
