Laguna Beach Retreat



It's so refreshing to find a new featured beach house online...this one located in Orange County, California reminds me of a resort with its rustic design that includes California, Mexican and Mediterranean styles. An added bonus...there's an ocean view from every room.

Desiree's Beach House Picks...

Richard Taylor Scallop Shell Bowl

I've had a  few friends tell me lately that they were inspired to add a few coastal elements to their home.  This, of course...always makes me want to do somersaults! Yeah! Now let's see what ideas I can come up with...well, here they are. Fun, naturally-hued beach house picks.

Love this Dress...

Tory Burch

I love this embroidered dress that Tory Burch is wearing! Does anyone know if it was something she sold in the past? If so...I hope she makes them again!

Cabo San Lucas Get-a-Way



If you ask my husband where I want to go within the next year, he will say Cabo.  I love Mexico!  It's where we honeymooned and I would love to visit there and stay at one of these two places!  



Have you ever been and which would you choose?

I've always loved this elegant simple bathroom. It's from Coastal Living's 2010 Ultimate Beach House in Seabrook, Washington. 

Love beach houses like I do?
