Fall Favorites {Guest Post} Tina from The Enchanted Home

Words can not express how happy I am that Tina from The Enchanted Home is sharing her fall favorites with us today! I met Tina almost a year ago when we were both very new at this blogging hobby of ours.  Right from the start, I learned that Tina is probably one of the most sincere people you'll ever meet.  Her faith and kindness is contagious and I am blessed to have her as a blog pal! We visit eachother's blogs everyday and always make time to leave comments.

Tina, her husband and her three sons are almost ready to move into their new home and it's breathtaking! You must stop by and take a peak! She does a beautiful job taking pictures and showing her readers every nook and cranny of her newly built home that is yet to be decorated! Yeah! More fun awaits us all!  Thank you T! xo


The Enchanted Home

I am sooo happy to be here with Desiree and at one of my favorite blogs, Chic Coastal Living, where life is all about happiness, beauty and chic living! Its always like a breath of fresh air and isn't she just the best and sweetest? I will not talk about how jealous I am though of her many 13 mile runs, actually "in awe" is the better word!   Anyway when she asked to talk about some of my favorite things for fall, I jumped at the change as it might be my favorite season. So here we go...

Coastal Island Retreat


This home was built by Herlong & Associates.  The firm provides clients a full range of architectural and interiors services for custom homes. I would have to say that this outdoor room is the most beautiful room I've seen in a beach house!

Have a wonderful Saturday!

Casual SoCal Home


Hi everyone!  I hope you are waking up to a beautiful Tuesday (here...it's been raining and raining).  Today, I found this gorgeous and casual, beach house styled, southern California home.  It's perfect for entertaining and has plenty of space for guests to unwind.  I love all the coastal details that you'll find here and there.  Subtle and not over done, which is the way I like my beach houses lately.  What do you think?

What I'm Loving Now {Guest Post} Liz of Sequins & Stripes

I'm so fortunate to introduce the lovely and talented Liz from Sequins and Stripes to share with us what she's loving for fall!  I just recently found her fashionable blog through Pinterest and I've been hooked ever since! Her blog is fresh and full of chic ideas for living a stylish life. I must say anyone who names their blog, Sequins and Stripes, is definitely on the top of my list! Thank you Liz, for being here today on this beautiful Saturday!

..........................................................................

Hi! I'm Liz from the style blog Sequins & Stripes and I am super excited to be taking over Chic Coastal Living today! As you already know, Desiree has an impeccable eye for style so you can image how thrilled I was when she asked me to share a few things that I am currently loving. Living in Chicago, the winter months tend to last forever, and with fall out in full force, you better believe that I am stocking up on things to keep me warm while remaining {hopefully!} styled and chic. Aside from my cozy knits, long sleeve layering pieces, the perfect winter coat, and snow boots - here are a few of my favorites for fall...

Fall in Love


I got an email yesterday from J.Crew alerting me that they have new items in store and online. Wow! Love so many new things...here are a few {mixed in} with some others that caught my eye on Pinterest. If you haven't had the pleasure of trying Pinterest yet, you must! It's absolutely incredible all the inspiration that you get just by entering a simple search. I just learned how to {pin} my favorite images from the fabulous sites that I visit. It's a lot easier than cutting out photos and storing them like I used to do in the old days. Hope you have a great Friday! Before I get to work this morning I'm going to treat myself to a venti pumpkin latte from Star Bucks! Yum!

The Hamptons Curb Appeal

I'm working on the landscaping at my home and have been searching the internet for inspiration on curb appeal. I've always loved the simple landscaping approach of Hampton's homes and these photos are inspiring me to take that route (although, I will have to pick something comparable in looks, because I live in the south).

Happy {1} Year Blog Anniversary {To Me}


I had such a busy day yesterday....I forgot that it was exactly {one year} since I started, Chic Coastal Living! Thank you everyone for stopping by, reading my blog and sharing it with your friends throughout the past twelve months. It means the world to me to have blog friends that are inspired by design, as I am. This has been an incredible journey so far, and I'm looking forward to the next year where I can continue to work on some of the plans I have for this blog. I would also like to thank God for giving me the desire to design and create since I was a little girl. It's a gift that helps make my blessed life even more fun!

Taming My Hair


I have curly hair and you would never know it, because I work diligently on a daily basis to get the curl out.  Lately, these tools are helping me do just that.  I've also been thinking about doing a keratin treatment, but I've heard mixed reviews.  My friend Marty, suggested that I ask my readers what their thoughts were on getting an anti-frizz treatment.  Please share what you think! Thanks!

Light and Natural Florida Beach House

This relaxed and refined beach house in Rosemary Beach, Florida was designed by architect Bobby McAlpine and interior designer Susan Ferrier.

Here are a few details about the house:

Style: Dutch Colonial-inspired home with elegant but casual interiors that stand up to family life

Space: 4,800 square feet spread over three levels, with five bedrooms, six baths, an open living/dining area, and a downstairs den

Setting: The white sands of Rosemary Beach, Florida, just off scenic Highway 30A between Panama City and Destin

View: The shimmery blue-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico.         

Excerpt from Coastal Living

Instead of nautical stripes, kicky colors, or shell-themed accessories, Bobby and Susan are known for a refined mix of muted shades with gradations from room to room; layered textures such as distressed wood and soft, organic fabrics; and clean lines found on everything from gridded panes of divided-light windows to pared-down versions of traditional furnishings.                          

The use of distressed woods and farics resonates big with me during the fall season.  I love their view on beach house design and think it's a nice change from the norm.  Do you agree?

What I'm Loving Now

In the last two years, I've bought stylish coats from J. Crew and I'm looking into getting a few more this year.  It's nice to have a small collection that you can turn to year after year to keep you warm.  These chic coats made the top of my list and will definitely do the job!




Jennifer Lopez's Chic Hamptons Home

Jennifer Lopez will be spending more time in the Hamptons now that she purchased this $18,000,000 beautiful home in Water Mill. The home is 14,000 square feet, has seven bedrooms, nine and a half bathrooms, a pool and may I add....a gorgeous view.

I {heart} Kate Spade

Today, I had the pleasure of shopping at a premier outlet mall near my home and I loved many accessories and shoes at the Kate Spade store.  Honestly, I could have purchased one of each of these above! So chic.
