This home doesn’t look like it belongs in Venice Beach but it does! and it has the most amazing outdoor space I’ve ever seen!! Not going to lie, I have a bit of garden envy. Which is why I’ve broken this post up into outdoor and indoor pics. The home itself has strong Moroccan influences (hence the reason I say it doesn’t look like it belongs here). There’s lots of weather wood, a personal favorite, mixed with smooth cement walls. Check it out:
I could float in this pool all day!
I love the tile work in this pool!
Love those rustic cabinets!

I love this beachy home in Charleston that I spotted on Domino. Even though it’s not actually on the beach, this home in South Carolina has a laid back good vibe that’s not to be missed! The owner, Amanda Greeley, brings in a lot of natural elements (which is so my style!) and I love every room of it. There are a lot of rattan and wooden elements from floor to ceiling and did I mention she painted her floors and ceiling a beautiful shade of aqua?! Check it out:
The wall color! Those chairs! That pool picture!!
I’m obsessed with the lighting!
There’s no replacement for a good ol’ claw foot tub!
Today I rounded up my favorite 5 beach houses! They’re located all over the world and in some of the most beautiful and tropical places. These home tours are not to be missed! Check ’em out:
What I loved most about this beach house was the pops of turquoise throughout, the fact that it’s surrounded by palm trees, oh and the gate in the backyard that leads to the beach! Click the pic to take the tour
This beach house in Australia has a more serene and calming decor. I love the soothing aqua and natural wood elements in this home. Click pic to see more!
The best thing about this beach house is the backyard with a stunning pool and the most amazing outdoor shower I’ve ever seen. Click pic to check it out!
You can’t tell from the picture but my favorite thing about this beach house is its size! This beach house is teeny tiny, proving that you don’t need much square footage just great views! Click pic to take the tour.
The decor in this beach house was my favorite! I mean just take a look at this dresser. Click pic to take the full tour!
Take a tour of India Hicks’ beach home in the Bahamas! It’s filled with history and antiques and I love it all. From the tropical greenery growing outside to the coastal fish prints inside, this home has captured my heart. Also did I mention they have a pet parrot named Jenga? You’ve got to take a look:
I’ve always thought of libraries as the heart of the home! I love the nautical touch to this one!!
Who wouldn’t want to dive into this bed?!
I’m obsessed with this distressed desk!
Because who doesn’t need an adorable playhouse for their backyard?
Sardinia, a small island off the coast of Italy is home to this amazing rustic beach house. Almost every room in the home has a 180 degree view! (With pretty fabulous views I might add) Depending on what room your in, you might get a look at the beautiful turquoise waters, or growing grape vines by the in-ground pool. The owners spared no expense with the furniture, importing doors from India and sofas from other parts of the world. There’s even a sofa made entirely of rustic logs that you must check out below!
Doorways had to be expanded to fit the antique doors from India
Confession : I’m obsessed with these antique turquoise seltzer bottles! I even have one in my own home.
Amazingly this log sofa still looks incredible comfortable!
ahh those views!

There are some homes when you first walk, you know are going to be special. Needless to say, that this Brazilian home belonging to none other than the Anderson Cooper is one of those homes! My heart skipped a beat from the very first time I laid eyes on it. Weathered kitchen cabinets, exposed beams, and pops of blues and turquoise are just a few of the things that had me “oooh-ing” and “awing”. Enjoy the tour >
Are you in love yet?
I’m so in love with that wall color!
Did you spot the weather kitchen cabinets?
Rustic wooden benches are a current crush of mine.
That macrame chair is the cat’s meow!
If you love this shower, head over to Architectural Digest to see the outdoor shower that’s inside a carved out tree trunk! as well as more photos from this Brazilian home.
This charming island home is located on Stradbroke Island, Australia. (also known as “Straddie) It’s filled with coastal vibes and seaside treasures. My biggest obsession with this home however, sits right on the front porch. It’s a distressed and painted wooden bench. (see below in pictures 3 + 4) There’s just something about distressed wooden furniture that makes me swoon! Take a look:
This bench has my heart!
Another obsession I have is with inlay furniture. This blue and white piece is too good!
I love all the blue and white pottery!!
