Cozy Beach House: Get the Look

Country Living

I know it’s summer right now, but I love beach houses all year round. Do you? I love spending time at beach houses in storms, warm weather, mid-week, holidays and vacation days.

That’s one of the reasons I love to incorporate beach house elements in my own home. It’s the atmosphere I love to be in every day!

I don’t even think of “beach house” as a “style” as much as a way to inspire a cozy relaxed vacation mood, you know what I mean? That’s probably because vacationing near water is my favorite!

My girls and I just returned late last night from our trip to Utah. We weren’t near the coast all week, so I really missed that sea air! And I guess that is why I came home all inspired to do some beach house posts. :)

Also, I missed YOU while we were gone! Are you still here?

I didn’t have a moment to blog while I was away, so I’m excited to get back to it. Even with all the social media options available these days, this blog community is hands down ALWAYS my favorite place to hang out and chat about our mutual love of home.

Has anyone visited any charming beach houses this summer? What are your favorite coastal towns?


    • Gail

      LOVE your porch! This is definitely on my wish list.

    • Jo Jo

      I love your porch Linda! We have a back porch as well, covered but not windowed or screened. It is where I meet the Lord for quiet time of praise and devotional time. Such a blessing to be able to design spaces such as these!

      • Linda Stoll

        What a sweet place for quiet reflection …

    I’m here Melissa, and oh so happy to be so!

  4. Jo Jo

    My favorite coastal towns are the one I live in and also 2 that I live nearby! Milton, Rehoboth and Lewes, DE! We always feel as if we’re on vacation here. I have incorporated just enough coastal
    Elements in our home to give it a feel of being on the coast and beach without it looking ( at least to me) kitchy or themed. The beach, the sea is our happy place for sure!

      What a blessing to get to live in such a relaxing happy home by the sea, Jo Jo! Enjoy every moment.

    I love the beach and grew up going to Charleston, SC all the time, but I love the mountains. We are in Park City right now and summer in the mountains is almost as good as winter in the mountains. I love the crisp, cool air at night and don’t miss the humidity one bit!

    Hi Melissa,
    Hands down Edgartown Massachusetts on the charming Island of Martha’s Vineyard.

  7. Kerry

    Hey there – happy to be here and so glad you’re back. Can’t wait to hear about the Utah trip!
    Favorite costal town is any one I get to spend some time in!! The beach is definitely my happy place.
    I’ve had to opportunity to spend some time in Carolina Beach NC this summer as well as Sosua and Puerto Plata Dominican Republic. Hoping to return to the NC coast again before summer’s over.

    • Melissa @ The Inspired Room

      Thank you, Kerry! Oh, how fun to get to travel so much this summer! We’ll fit in another trip or two ourselves in August so I’m excited to do some more exploring and enjoying the sea air!

    I’m very blessed to live on the beach on Vashon Island. It’s old and a cottage and your inspiration has and continues to help me as it’s a project that never seems to be done…
