I can feel the wave, love the surfboards! Relaxation with a gnarly twist and two big guns! Luanne

A nap, under a ceiling fan, with the sound of the waves just outside the open window. Oh me.

Erin said...

Doesn't get much better than this!!!

Stephanie Clayton said...

the turquoise floor is great!
i love the use of surfboards in decor. my friends just built their house here in the virgin islands; they're used a couple of vintage surfboards on their balcony to help block afternoon sun. what a creative idea!

Chris said...

At this point, I really think it would be easier (and quicker) to say what I don't like about those pictures! Everything is so darned dreamy! That FLOOR is perfection!

Kathy said...

Surfs Up!!! Love the floor color, perfect for the beachy home...Excuse me but I could find the Margaritas??? xoxo~Kathy~@ Sweet Up-North Mornings...

Deborah said...

So yummy...love the wall of glass looking out to the ocean. I still have not recovered from the outing for your mother's birthday! Have you seen The Fish Who Shall Remain Nameless lately? Happy 4th! **blows kisses** Deborah

How could you NOT with those amazing images?
Personally, I'll take the cozy banquette.

Melissa said...

I love the mirror in the first photo, and the four light blue vases (?) on either side of the sink. I'm tired of construction--I want to start accessorizing!!

Frugal Fine Living said...

Love the one with the surfboards! We're leaving for vacation at the shore tomorrow. Looking forward to feeling beach sand between my toes. I just hope it stops raining here for a few days.

Love the bathroom, the skirt on the sofa, the iron jacks in front of the mirror (used to have some, but think I sold them...),the striped fabric and that painted floor in the last photo! Yummy!

p.s. hope your staying cool!;)

I love that wood vanity, and I love the worn-ness of the wood. And I LOVE the liquid turquoise floor - it's gorgeous!

dec0r8or said...

Why not indeed?! Is it OK if I fall in love with every picture you post? I'm feeling a little bit like a slacker as I look at that lovely pleated edge on the sofa slipcover. Why didn't I do something like thaton mine!? I'm a bum!

Sixpence and a Blue Moon said...

Yummy and Delicious...all of them. I'm not that picky, I'd take any of them.

The more I see capiz chandeliers, the more I'm convinced that I NEED one!

Transparent Mama said...

I LOVE those surfboards for shutters. Can I move in?

Linda/"Mom" said...

* What's NOT to love??? THANKS! *

Dagny @ Beautiful Living said...

Love it! Especially the dining room table with benches and the bathroom vanity :)

DesignTies said...

Oh yeah, love that beachy look!! The wood vanity in the first picture is great, and love the round mirror and turquoise accents :-)

I also love that room with the turquoise floor -- it'd be like walking on water :-)

Ms. Tee said...

So beautiful! I love the dining table and the living room with that view. *And* that turquoise floor. :) Happy 4th!

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

Terry said...

The turquoise floor - yeah. I want to eat in that booth.

Linda Lou said...

I wanna hang out in this pad!!! Surfboards are a very versatile decorating item aren't they?? Have a great 4th!!

Ivy Lane said...

Love that turquoise floor..that pic is going in my "I GOTTA HAVE SOMEDAY" file!!! great inspiration! Wish the sun would come out here today!!!!

Flower Patch Farmgirl said...

I love that picture of the boy's room (I guess?) with the globe and textured window shade. I'm getting ready to do a nursery and my only inspiration so far is a similar globe. Thanks for the additional inspiration!

Joan@anythinggoeshere said...

I am adding you right this minute to my Summer Reading: Day at the beach bloglink list. Fabulous

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

Ahhh. Beautiful! What gorgeous pics.

Great choices - I especially love the first one - just gorgeous.

katiedid said...

Cool and beachy is right! Have a happy beachy 4th!

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Beautiful pics, Linda! Thanks for stopping by to see me. I wonder why it is that we are all so enthralled with beachy these days. I mean, it's been around forever, but it seems that style has just captured everyone's fancy, myself included.

Blue Muse said...

Well, I have several surfboards you can have! LOL.
That first picture sent me to the MOOOOON. I want! The rest of course, all gorgeous. Ahh. Heaven.
