A Blissful Beach House Tour

You're in for a treat today! 
Our friends Joan and Bruce have graciously allowed us all
to visit their absolutely fabulous, serenely beautiful beach house.
This is a Before and After Miracle.  
I'm not kidding.  Wait til you see what they have done with this house!
It's pure Bliss.

Come on in!

The entryway.  
Love the mirror, love the bench, love the pillow.
Color, Scale, Texture, Pattern.
Joan is a master of the mix, as you will see in the rest of the house.
This is just the beginning....

The entry leads you to 
the living room.

Everywhere you look, there are wonderful pieces,
a feast for the eyes.

Clean, crisp, warm, comfortable and so stylish.

This living room space has been completely transformed.

Joan and Bruce were able to see the potential in this room...
Here's a before shot-
hard to believe it's the same room.

Nice space, with a great ceiling and gorgeous views, 
but the windows didn't open.  At a beach house.

They found a way to rebuild the wall and add those gorgeous new windows.
Love the blinds, too.

I'll show you the outside transformation in another post. 
It's amazing, too.

The fireplace was redone and built-ins were added.
Even the built-ins have perfect new windows. 

Another fabulous mix of fabrics, colors and patterns.

Four different pillow fabrics, perfectly combined.
I am absolutely stealing this idea...

Love these blue chairs.

  A little modern, yet still comfortable.

And these bird pillows- beautiful!

More charming things...

everywhere you turn...

It's just sublime.

There's lots more to see of this beautiful home.  
Stay tuned for future posts.

Thank you, Joan and Bruce!

  1. This is so me . . . in the, "I love this and I could live here."
    Gorgeous, better yet, looks drop dead comfortable, stylish, and easy . . .
    Liked the mixed fabric pillow idea . . . (Love each fabric.)
    Like the grey, shuttered like piece with the lamp.
    Fireplace . . . the book cases with windows . . .
    And the transformation . . . the window wall! Excellent . . .
    THANK YOU ERIN for the tour . . . so many ideas are swimming in my brain!

  2. Oh wow. That is beautiful. I love the colors. I REALLY love the pillows thought. What a beautiful transformation they made. I'm jealous of all that beautiful natural light.

  3. Good Morning Erin, My word, you will have to say a big thank you to your friends Joan and Bruce, for allowing us to take a peek inside their house.... it is stunning. I love the fact that the room is filled with interesting objects but is so calming. It would be a joy to live there.
