Light and breezy beach style

Light and Airy Beach House Style 

Here's 4 tips to create a serene and natural look in your beach house:-
1. Keep walls bare, when using art and prints keep them understated and minimal in style
2. Add a soft, light coloured carpet or rug
3. Inject texture with cushions and throws
4. Opt for soft lighting.

Danish Summer Style

Wednesday, February 10, 2016

Relaxed weekend style.

 I love the rustic simplicity and 'back to basics' nature of Danish summer houses. 

For the Danish it's all about paring things back, keeping it real and honest ...
exactly what a beach house or a weekender should be.
 The focus is all about family, friends, relaxing, good food and
getting back in touch with nature.
Their summer houses are cute, cosy and full of character ...
a wonderful mix of vintage furniture, family treasures and flea market finds.
The colours are always restrained in a simple palette
of black, white and grey with light timbers to add warmth and texture.

How sweet is that kitchen with the curtain detail!

Relaxed American Beach House

Tuesday, February 9, 2016










Loving the subdued palette in this relaxed, coastal retreat.

This beautiful home in a color palette of grey and white with some hints of color is designed by Charleston-based interior designer Cortney Bishop. Cortney’s design vision runs the gamut of style and structure, balancing creativity, comfort, and functionality with a dose of modern flair. She attributes her innate ability to mix patterns and hues to her love for travel, art, fashion, and music. I love the extra wide limewashed floorboardrs, the wall panelling and the concrete finished fireplace.

White & Wood

Monday, February 8, 2016

The perfect patnership - white + wood

For me, this is the ultimate beach house duo ~
white and natural timber.
It's light, bright and breezy.
The white keeps the look fresh and crisp and 
the timber adds warmth to the scheme - 
bringing a natural, organic feel to the palette.
Add a splash of your favourite colour in accent pieces
and you have yourself a winning combination!
