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!
