It’s only Tuesday, and we’re dreaming of a weekend at the beach again already… It’s just that time of year I guess! From sailboats to sea shells to a hint of nautical rope, we’re celebrating those tiny touches that take a home from chic to beach chic. We hope these photos make you feel like you’re on a mini-vacation today!
Hi, friends! We hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We still have a ways to go with the Beaufort house, but we wanted to give you a little sneak peek of a few things! As my husband delicately pointed out, my photography skills are abysmal. I think I should take a class or something… Anyway, we still have a some painting to do, curtains to hang, etc. etc. But we’re so excited for progress!
These gorgeous Kerri Shipp drawings make a great statement wall coming down the stairs!
My sink! These mirrors are some of my favorite things in the entire house!
A beach house isn’t complete without a sea turtle!
We thought this guy was going on the screened porch, but we love him here!
This is just a little taste of our progress, and we can’t wait to show you more! Happy Monday, everyone!
Few places on earth compare to Palm Beach when it comes to fabulous, over-the-top design.
But, if loud colors and bamboo furniture everywhere you look are all you equate with Palm Beach style, think again.
This stunning Palm Beach place is crisp, clean and even a little subdued at times.
This neutral palette with pops of blue is, to us, the ultimate in soothing shore decor. And we love the bamboo silverware.
These chairs are so pretty and add such a delicate feel to the room. We’re big fans of dark floors for contrast against a white table and chairs. Plus, bare dining room floors are just practical. Easy sweeping!
It really is those thoughtful touches that take a morning meal from simple to sublime.
Fresh vegetables are always a part of a well-appointed kitchen, ready for laid-back entertaining.
Twin beds are so chic, from kid’s rooms to guest rooms.
We love a chaise, but a comfy chair with ottoman can be just as good.
These lovely ladies prove that true fashion never goes out of style. And few places know style like Palm Beach. We hope you enjoyed today’s home tour. Thanks for visiting us!
It has been awhile since we gave an update on the Beaufort place, and we’ve made great progress! That awful mantle in the dining room is in the process of being revamped — wish we could say the same for the tile! And the new paint looks amazing! We don’t miss the pea soup green even a little bit.
Here’s another view of the dining room paint and the molding. It’s so fresh!
Delicious fresh paint in the living room as well. One day that tile will be gone…
The first coat of the stain has been put on the kitchen floors, and the paint looks great too. The new cabinets should be in later this week. Woo hoo!
Here’s another view of the floors.
The first coat is on the new floors in Mom and Dad’s bath…
And their room and bath are the most soothing blue! We think we’re four for five on paint colors, which really isn’t bad.
A little more blue with the pretty gray grout and fresh, clean tile.
A couple of the fixtures are set in our upstairs master.
And the bathtub has been framed.
This pretty egg and dart molding matches the molding on the stairs.
In the most exciting news…
The third floor construction has begun!!
Here’s the little window in the third floor…
Which is going to be replaced with this huge new window!
Here’s the new entrance to the third floor…
And the affectionately named stairway to heaven! Oh how we’ve waited for you…
In other news, Will’s sound system is wired up and looking good. Here’s an example speaker.
The floors outside of little Will’s bathroom are finished. They look way shinier here than they are.
So that’s where we are… The upstairs floors are finished, (but we haven’t seen yet so no photos) the kitchen cabinets will be here this week, and we’re making progress slowly but surely. We hope we have a lot more to show soon! If you want to go back to the very beginning, it’s here and here. Sometimes it makes us feel better to see how far we’ve come!
We hope you all have a wonderful day. Thank you for visiting us today!
