Beach Cottage Tour

I use the term beach “cottage” lightly because this home is definitely on the larger side but still filled with effortless coastal style!  I’m trying to decide between the master bedroom and the kitchen as my favorite room in this house.  The kitchen is one of those gorgeous white kitchens that I could never be trusted in with a glass of red wine but still dream about none the less.  While the master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with its own private deck and one of those cute round windows!  Take the tour:

Tour this Boho Beach Bungalow

I’m in love with this California beach bungalow!  It’s filled with lots of natural materials, fun pops of color and gorgeous textures.  No doubt about it, the owner is definitely an interior designer.  I haven’t decided which room is my favorite.  It’s a toss between the living room and the bedroom (the bed is swoon worthy!).  On another note, I’ve always found it challenging mixing and matching prints and patterns but this designer pulls it off effortlessly!  Check it out:

Corsica – Outdoor Living

I’ve seen some amazing outdoor spaces in my day but nothing quite compares to this seaside desert oasis!  If you’re a lover of cactus and ocean breezes then you’ll want to check out this place.  Corsica is an island located off of France’s coast that’s wedged nicely in between Nice and Rome.  You can imagine the views!  I have to say that if I lived here, I would just live outside.  There truly is no need for indoor living when you live in a place this stunning.

DIY – Colorful Rope Baskets

I love this fun and super easy DIY I spotted on honestlywtf blog.  It requires very few materials and it’s very easy to get started.  Lately I’ve been on a search for baskets to put my plants in, one because I love the look and two because I think it might help keep the dog out of my plants!  Got to protect my plant babies from their furry nemesis!!  I’ve never been one to shy away from color and I love that this DIY allows you to add as much color and pattern as your heart desires.  Take a peek:

Materials:
rope basket
assorted acrylic paint

Seaside + Tiny : A Home Tour

My obsession with tiny homes all started with this house boat and how could I possibly fit everything I love into a tiny space that I love.  Both this seaside home and the house boat are packed with amazing seaside views!  Could I give up a closet filled with shoes for ocean views?  I like to think so.  This tiny home is only 350 square feet and located on the Mediterranean Sea.  I’m in love with the rustic painted floors and the brass finishes.  The brass pulls in the bathroom and kitchen caught my eye because they offer a nautical and clean feel to the home.  The owners use brass throughout with really ties in their tiny space.  Check it out!

DIY Nautical Rope Mirror

I love adding nautical and beachy details around my home.  It always makes me feel like I’m never far from the beach.  This DIY I spotted looks fairly easy and doesn’t involve too many materials.  I already have some rope, now I’m just on the look out for the perfect mirror!

DIY Nautical Rope Mirror

 

MATERIALS

1/2-inch-thick natural-fiber rope (from home-supply stores)
Unframed 10-inch round mirror
Cement glue
Painters’ tape

STEPS

Measure and cut 2 segments of rope, one to fit around the mirror’s outer edge, the other to fit just inside the first.
Glue rope to mirror, lining up the ends for a neat seam.
Secure with painters’ tape until dry.
Once dry, make a knotted hanger: Cut a 45-inch length of rope, and tie a knot on both ends (we used a variation on the figure-eight knot; see diagram).
Glue knotted ends of rope to sides of mirror; one knot should cover the seams. Secure with painters’ tape until dry.

Tiny House Tour in Copenhagen

For the past several years I’ve been slightly obsessed with the tiny house movement.  I always love seeing inside them and the creative and beautiful things that people do with their tiny homes!  This tiny house really caught my eye though because it has more of a cottage feel to it with creeping vines and rustic benches.  My favorite part is the enclosed patio.  Take the tour:

Not sure if I could sleep up there for fear of rolling off in the middle of the night but I do love that the “bedroom” has it’s own skylight

My one grief with tiny house tours is that they almost never show the bathroom. Unfortunately this tour is no different. I’m over here like, “Hello? Can I see your bathroom? I’m nosey!”
