Cozy Beach House: Get the Look

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 subtle 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. :)

We had a great time (I’ll share more about our trip soon and you may have seen some behind the scenes on our Instagram) but it’s always so nice to be home.

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?

I‘ve been so happy to have practically summer weather here lately. Is is sunny where you are? The warmer weather has been inspiring me to lighten and freshen up my decor for this season (well, and to be ready for summer which is coming up so quickly!).

You know I don’t do actual “spring” decor, but I do love to lighten things up, switch out a few accessories and add in lots of greenery! A little tropical or coastal vibe is always a fave of mine this time of year, too.

I’ve shown you my updated dining room, master bedroom and a bit of my kitchen recently (and you’ll be seeing a lot more of our outside spaces soon), but I’m still really pondering what I’m going to do in my living room.

I definitely feel like changing things a bit (and I’m ready for a new sofa since the sectional we have currently in the room was just there for the winter, it’s going back downstairs). I’m zeroing in on some ideas, but I guess I’m still  “not positive” what I can or want to do yet. I’ll do a post on what I’m thinking soon so we can chat about that.

But in the meantime, I need a little decorating inspiration so I thought I’d share some pretty rooms I found with you, too!

Did you see the Home Again movie? I didn’t, but the last two photos are the house from movie! Do you recognize my daybed (here’s mine, and here’s a less expensive similar one), right out in the living room just like mine!

What room are you working on right now? I’d love to hear what you’re up to!
