To get us all in the mood for warm weather, how about we take a fun home tour today?
Apparently I have a thing for profiling other people's beach houses on my blog. I'll change that as soon as I acquire a beach house of my own, so...that would be...never! Ha! In the meantime, please enjoy this amazing beach bungalow which belongs to friends of ours.
This is the main living area. You enter into the kitchen, and if you keep walking you go through the dining area (and this cute bench) and then the living area. On both ends of the house are decks to enjoy the beachy breezes:)
This place truly inspires in terms of what you can do with a small space (this entire house is 832 square feet! Believe me, it feels MUCH bigger!) Note the clean surfaces, clear chairs at the dining table, the use of white and the eye-catching pops of color--all expert methods of making a small space feel bigger.
Check this out: they purchased their home after the previous owner passed away, and all his stuff was still inside. I know, they are fearless.
|I *love* that items found on the beach make it into the decor, even when those items are plastic soldiers.|
|Run down, dingy...and the decks are falling apart.|
|Yay! Clean and fresh and gorgeous in green!|
