Escape to the Beach


For those of us living in the Southern Hemisphere, our beach holidays are fast becoming a distant memory and I thought we could use a few visual reminders, and I'm sure our friends in the North have been dreaming of a beach holiday, to get through a long winter, so .....

.... I have compiled a post of enticing beach and beach house pictures for you to enjoy, wherever you are in the world.

A driftwood lamp and some sea green bottles lend a coastal vibe.


White washed wood - perfect for a beach house.

Must-have holiday reading.

Blue striped slip covers - perfect for sandy bodies.

Muted colours and natural fibres.

Window seats for sea gazing are imperative

Beachy bathroom

 The colours of sea and sand brought indoors.

Doors flung open to let the sea air in.

Bedrooms must be airy and comfortable

Shaded outdoor area for lounging and dining

Early morning beach comforts.

Just calling for an afternoon nap...

Maybe even a morning nap...

Inviting guest room for friends.

Dining with sea views.

(Bath)Room with a View

Dappled shade and endless views

The colours of beach sand

Perfect for breakfast.

There are no words....

The colours in this bedroom perfectly reflect the surrounding view.

Another gorgeous bedroom...

...and another.

Beach picnics, preferably with wine included, are compulsory.

Add some beachy brights...

....or let the view add the colour.

So keep dreaming and your day at the beach will come.

Till next time

  1. I cant wait for summer and a vacation...but I love the feel of these homes and would like it all year around.

  2. Sharon,
    With these interior shots and their views, even people who rarely get to the beach will be delighted. I love some of the rooms you've shared. The little driftwood lamp is wonderful I like the neutral rooms, allowing the ocean to steal the show, :-)

  3. Sand, sun, and beautiful beach interiors are the perfect escape for this foggy morning! Thank you!
