If I had a beach house...

In an exotic tropical locale, it would look something like this (you know, if I also had lots of cash, which presumably I do if I own a beach house in an exotic tropical locale):

Lots and lots of white, warmed with golden tones and splashes of pink to complement the outside greenery. I can feel the ocean breezes...lounging in my caftan...sipping something good.

I must say that when I peeked at Andrew Raquet's portfolio last week for a post, my jaw hit the floor incredibly hard. His portfolio is AMAZING and has given me new images to obsess over. Go take a look if you haven't seen it yet. This space designed by him is clearly one of my favorites.

Mostly because it helped me escape the chill of winter, if only in my head.


  1. I couldn't see the images in your post, but I followed your link to his portfolio. I love the pink pillows on the sofas!

    Stay warm!

  2. Now that is a chic beach house! I really like those end tables.

  3. Wow, what an elegant beach house! I love it. I posted something similar here if you want a few more ideas - although mine are a bit more rustic. :) Thanks for a beautiful post and the lead on Andrew Raquet - very inspirational!

  4. Sorry, by "here" I meant on my blog. :| It's late here in Munich! :)

  5. This is a great scheme for this room. The striped curtains really add a fun and fresh look for the somewhat formal yet comfortable decor.

  6. Absolutely ideal!!! Anyone seen the pink/green/white/yellow suzano type fabric on the pillows before?? They would be perfect in my family room...I love it!a

  7. Pretty! Have you seen the new Coastal Living with the house in the Bahamas (I think)? So fab- you would love!
