Photo of the Day...


Beach-Chic

...love the look of this boho, beach-chic room. Extra long sofa with mix-match throw pillows, definitely a vacationers dream. Oh and how can I forget...the view.



What I'm Loving Now...

Nothing says that spring or summer is around the corner than bright crisp stripes...preferably in navy and white.  Would you agree?

What I'm Loving Now...

Run a Marathon...check.
I did it! I survived my first marathon and if you would have asked me yesterday to run a marathon again one day, I would have told you no way.

...but, today's a new day and I would love to be crazy and run 26.2 again!!!  I think...

Looks I love...

 Sequin-Stripe V-Neck Sweater

Oh my! J.Crew sure knocked it out of the park this Spring! (my family is in baseball mode right now...can you tell?) I just about fell over, when I got an email from J.Crew this morning announcing new styles were added in-stores and online.  I couldn't wait to get home and pour over all the lovely pieces online that are intended to make us all smile.

...all I can say is that...I think I'm going to need a second job!

Things That Make Me Happy...


Good morning!  With all the things that fill our lives each day, I always try to remember the small things in life that make me happy. A beautifully set breakfast, roses from my husband, a box of delicious chocolates from my students, a tasty grilled sandwich from a bistro and a visit to Starbucks.  These small things I never take for granted...

Beyond the Beach...



A few weeks ago, I came across this traditional Portuguese fishing hut that was renovated for modern living by Aires Mateus and Assoc. The unique sand floor is warmed by a radiant-heat system and the kitchen island is made of white corian.  This home does seem different from the normal beach homes in that....there is sand on the floor.  It took me quite a few trips to the website to decide that yes, I can appreciate a true coastal home that is beyond the beach.



Wood walkways connect the two cabanas to the main house.

Dreamy Coastal Rooms


Good Morning! I hope that you are in for a great weekend!  We have another three day weekend here with school being out on Monday.  It's nice to work four days...wouldn't you agree?!  I've been searching the internet for inspiration on beach houses and I came across these lovely images.  All of which, I would do in my home.  Some of you may know me by now, I love a white backdrop and some color added and I think these coastal designed rooms have just that.  Enjoy and Happy Friday!
