Inspiration Friday- Beach House Style

I will likely never own a beach house or any home on the water, but it doesn't keep me from dreaming of what it would be like if I did. For me the idea of a home on the water conjures up images of peace and tranquility. A home with natural textures, light colors, an airy atmosphere and a relaxed but elegant attitude. It would mean little time spent with cell phones, televsions and computers but more time spent with books, games, thoughts, lively discussions and family. For any of you lucky enough to have such a home, I envy you. For those of you lucky enough to even be able to visit such a place this holiday weekend, I envy you too.

  11. I recommend a beach house over other bodies of water. We have lived on to different rivers east/west coasts, and there are critters galore, when you live on rivers! I love your pictures and I too look forward to coastal living! Maybe someday!

  20. The pics are beautiful. Being smack in the middle of Georgia makes you yearn for such! I especially love the window seat, get a nap, read a book and probably work on a tan all in one spot, glorious!!!!!

  24. Gorgeous pictures. I definitely dream of having a home by the sea one day. I particularly love that picture of the bed by the windown through the arch. I would lie for hours there reading and occasionally looking out to sea.
