monday at the beach

When warm weather arrives, my mind and soul wander off to the beach. (Unfortunately, my body doesn’t always get the 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...

Charleston South Carolina Island Living

For many, the choice to pack up and move to an island paradise happens only after lifelong dreaming and years of searching. But for this home, it was an instant decision.

Warm and Cozy Living Room

The home's open floor plan, original parquet floors, and West Indies-style vaulted ceilings stained dark brown are more than just appealing, they are absolutely beautiful.

Tropical Punch

The family room—with its slipcovered sofa, bold coffee table, and patterned pillows—exemplifies a simple design trick: Start with neutral sofas, because you can do anything with them, you can change out the pillows, side chairs, or tables in the room and the sofa still works.

Soothing Master Bedroom

In the master bedroom, the existing headboard was given a makeover with soothing blue fabric. The natural vibe of the home is reflected in the warm wood furniture, bamboo blinds, and seagrass rug.

Outfitted Outdoor Space

The porch accommodates a family's daily activities, including seaside siestas in a quilted hammock.
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.
