Happy April! I’m kicking off this month with a bright white beach house. Which seemed fitting because it’s officially Spring and a white refresh feels spot on for that! Not to mention, you all know how much I love myself an all white beach house! This beach house happens to be renovated from an older one but I can’t even tell. I swear it looks brand new! Take a peek:
It’s all about the views!
I love how clean and refined this kitchen is!!
I love how they made the most of the views by having the living room and dining area together!
Swooning over that bath tub!!

It’s a bit of a mouthful, minimalist modern san francisco bungalow, but it couldn’t more accurately describe this tour! It’s like a really clean surf shack with a laid-back minimal vibe (which I’m totally digging!). It’s a space with few items but the ones that are there make an impact. I especially love the wooden surf boards! How awesome is that?! Check it out:
Now do you see what I mean when I say this is a minimalist modern surf shack / bungalow in San Francisco?
In love with the striped shower curtain!
Every space needs some vintage/antiques
Don’t you just want to jump into that bed?!
I love the idea of having a tray in the bathroom to gather your items in

My latest style obsession is something I like to call, “coastal minimalism”. It takes a minimalist’s approach to the whole coastal home style. Part of why I’m loving it so much is that it’s effortless and allows for more space and light in a home. For that very reason I’ve taken on a huge Spring purge, in order to try and live with less. I started with my closet and literally went through EVERYTHING and was able to get rid of sooo much stuff that I just wasn’t wearing. I’m currently on part 2 of my purge, which means attacking the basement. I’m about half way through it and I’ve already found loads of home decor pieces that just aren’t my current style. My goal is that once I’m done purging my home of the things I don’t care for anymore, I’ll be left with everything that I truly love. When dealing with coastal minimalism, the main focus is on love. Only having items in your home that you adore and tossing out the rest. So if you love it, keep it but if you bought a vase just to fill a space on a shelf, then it’s time for it to go. Check out some more examples of coastal minimalism and gather some ideas from this beach home in Costa Mesa, CA.
Gain more space on an entryway table by placing sconces on the wall instead of table lamps. Also having just a few items that you love instead of filling the entire table, gives you room to unload as you walk in the door.
Placing plants in white or glass containers allows you to bring in pops of color while still leaving the room with an airy feel.
Don’t overcrowd a space with more places to seat than you really need. Being able to walk through a room without bumping into furniture can be a luxury in today’s world.
Bringing in elements like wicker, sea grass and rattan help incorporate a coastal feel with minimal pieces.
Not overcrowding the kitchen sink. When was the last time you only had one or two items surrounding the kitchen sink? I’m completely guilty of hoarding plants and fun antiques in my kitchen! oops!
An island that you don’t have to clear off before cooking, sounds nice!
You’ll notice that the colors don’t change much from room to room. Lots of white, pops of sea blues, mixed with greys and natural elements.
Stripes are a must in a coastal home!

Lately I’ve been in the mood for less; less stuff, less clutter, just less. Give me more air to breathe, more space and more white. Oh yes! Bring on white everything!! White for a new year and fresh start. Which is probably why I fell in love with this minimalist home in Montauk. Who knew a place like this even existed in Montauk? This beach house has a little something for everyone! Even if you’re not a minimalist, you are bound to fall in love with the bathroom. Don’t miss it! >>
Loving these door handles!!
OBSESSED! This is the shower of my dreams!!
