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

Nothing but good vibes in this court yard!

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 >

Beach Chic Tiny House Tour

I haven’t been very quiet about my love for tiny houses.  And let’s say you happen to put that tiny house by the beach, I promise my love for it is compounded by 100!  This tiny house is located at Laguna Beach, California and offers some serious beach chic vibes that have been very thoughtfully laid out.  How hard have I fallen in love with this tiny house?  Let me count the ways…

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 feel like the all white room really makes this nautical painting pop. Also I’m in love with that barrel planter! DIY?
