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:
This is the private deck off the master bedroom
That gorgeous white kitchen I was telling you about!
I love how the kitchen has little pops of turquoise and aqua!
The master bedroom, isn’t it dreamy?

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.
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:
assorted acrylic paint
1/4″ flat paint brush
Instructions: Paint away!
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!
Outdoor space to swoon over
Notice the brass fan, brass wall sconce, brass fixtures (insert more swooning here)
La Mer Veille (the old sea) is a running theme throughout this home
itty bitty closet space
Let’s not forget about the rooftop!
more nautical brassy goodness
notice how the plates say, “La Mer Vielle”

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!
1/2-inch-thick natural-fiber rope (from home-supply stores)
Unframed 10-inch round mirror
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.

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:
517 feet of cuteness!
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!”
My favorite spot!
