Tour this Nautical Beach House

If you love all things shiplap, dutch doors, and stripes then this nautical beach house is for you!  I’ve expressed my love of dutch doors before in this Coastal Home post, and just like my love of tiny houses, my love for dutch doors is never ending.  I think my love for this style door comes from the fact that you really need to live somewhere warm and sunny if you plan on getting any real use out of it.  Also if I’ve never told you how much I love shiplap, let me take a minute… or two.  Being the nautical lover that I am, I gravitate towards stripes.  I feel like shiplap is the stripe lover’s architectural equivalent.  The bonus of shiplap, if you happen to love stripes too, is that it’s a sort of neutral stripe.  Therefore, you can layer other stripes (think pillows and fabrics) on top of stripes (aka shiplap).  It’s an abundance of stripes, and I’m loving it!

A Very Tiny Beach House

Over the past several months I’ve been sharing my tiny house obsession with you.  Whether it’s a house boat or just a tiny seaside home, it’s safe to say I’m in love!  This latest tiny house that I’ve come across is a little more rustic than the last two.  It’s located in Uruguay and it’s so far off the beaten path that there really is no path or driveway for that matter.  You literally have to go off-roading to get to your front door.  For some reason this makes my heart swoon even more.  I imagine you don’t have too many neighbors in an area where you have to cross sand dunes to get to your beach house!  Oh and did I mention that it doesn’t have any electricity? but it does seem to have plumbing and there’s always candlelight and bonfires.  Take a peek:

I have my eye on that hammock!

Southampton Coastal Home Tour

There are many words that can be used to describe this home in Southampton; nautical, coastal, beach chic but the word that keeps popping into my head is grown-up.  This is something I feel I’ve had a hard time achieving in my own home.  Not to say that my home looks childish, just that it looks very on point for a young woman in her 30’s to be living there.  When I say that this Southampton home looks grown-up I think what I’m really saying is that the decorator of the home has a very mature decorating style.  Something one day I hope to have!

There is so much in this photo that I love! Dutch doors, driftwood table, secret bookcase/door!!!

One thing I’ve noticed about “grown-up” homes is that they usually have substantial sized frames around their artwork.

I love the nautical ceiling lights in this space paired with shiplap ceilings and bay window!

Are you beginning to see what I mean with the frames?

I love this little dressing room to have before or after you pop out to the beach

I’m not sure what these floors are made of but I love the color and smooth texture of them!

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.

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!
