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!)

All White Mediterranean Inspired House

I love a good all white house!  Just give me all white everything and I would be so happy.  This lovely Mediterranean inspired home made me realize something though.  Could I live with open shelving in my kitchen?  It’s been a big trend this year and when it’s done well, it looks really really good!  But realistically could I maintain an effortlessly styled open shelved kitchen?  Because the open shelves in this kitchen are on point! but not so overly styled that it looks impossible.  In fact, it looks very achievable.  Take a look:

I love this dining space! All the white and plants

An Aussie Beach House

What’s better than a beach house scattered with anchors, pops of turquoise and vibrant plant life?  Nothing!  Absolutely nothing!  Which is why I fell in love with this Aussie beach house located in Newcastle, Australia.  Between the kitchen backsplash and the anchored entryway, I’m not sure what I love more.  Check it out:
