BEACH CHIC

today it’s suppose to be 80 degrees in la- almost beach weather!

for those of you not having this kind of weather i thought i’d spread the beach spirit and share with you a few of my favorite beach houses.

my dream is a beach house in malibu- all white, everything slip-covered in ivory Belgium linen, whitewashed wood floors, wicker and rattan furniture sprinkled throughout. spare walls, lots of windows, open doors. simple, easy, comfortable- beach chic!

i also love a little ethnic or hippie vibe in a beach house- think saint barths! and i love all shades of blue in a beach house- think hamptons!

there is something about the beach- clean, crisp, fresh air, not a care in the world, a great escape! i’d like to think life is a beach!

think malibu, think saint barths, think hamptons- think chic! beach chic! enjoy!

  1. I was heaVily influenced by meg Ryan’s mix of Beach chic and inDustrial and sparse utilitarian Style when we were considering ideas for our new home. I ended up with white walls, industrial lighting L, dark wood floors anf mid ceNtury rattan piEces mixed wiTh white slipcovered couches and I’ve never regretted it once! Loved all the eye candy!

  2. Mark,

    I love Meg ryan’s summer house on the vineyard. Perfect!!`mss
