A Beach Home in Maui

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!

Minimalist Beach House – Home Tour

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.

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:

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.

A Very Tiny House in Palm Beach

I am in love with this very tiny house located in Palm Beach, Florida!!  I want to go and visit (it’s a rental!) and then when I’m ready to go home, I want to pack it in my suitcase and take it with me.  This adorable tiny house is only 400 square feet and the quintessential Palm Beach home, which has lovingly been dubbed, The Pineapple Pad.  Take a look and I think you’ll see what I’m talking about:

This is what I meant when I said quintessential Palm Beach!
