monday at the beach

When warm weather arrives, my mind and soul wander off to the beach. (Unfortunately, my body doesn’t always get a chance to go!) Whether it’s New England or the Gulf Coast, I am physically and emotionally drawn to sand and surf.

So welcome to my new blog series…
‘Monday at the Beach’
Let’s go...


Long Beach California Entertaining Cottage

The party element is throughout the house and on the rooftop deck with features like a hot tub, refrigerator, and ice-maker.

Durable Living Room

The living room features nautical elements and a sea-inspired color palette. Durable cotton-duck slipcovers and a cotton rug in the family room make cleanup easy in case the party—or the dogs—get out of hand. *NOTE: the homeowners' name is Miller.

Tranquil Bedroom

The master suite is decorated in a soothing blue, reminiscent of waking up in the clouds.

Nautical Dining Room

The dining room also features nautical elements and a patriotic color palette of red, white, and blue. The hutch and table were designed, along with other furnishings, to fit the space and needs.

Well-Stocked Bar

A fully equipped bar situated next to the family room allows for easy access. Cheery yellow directors’ chairs add a pop of color to the ocean-inspired space.
What do you think of this cute little cottage?
Is it move-in ready for you?

Many thanks go to my friends at Coastal Living for their help with this.
