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
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...
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
Till next time
