A beach house that will make you SWOOOOON!

Ever since we left our beloved vacation home, this is all I have been able to think about.  This home was a dream home for Shanna and me.  It had the perfect paint colors throughout, pottery barn furniture and accessories which you know just made us crazy, I am surprised we didn't rent a moving van and just empty that place out when we left!  Lucky for us we will be going back next year and in the meantime, if any of you have a cool 1.5 million bucks that you are not using and want us to have so we can buy this beach house, we will be more than happy to have you over for a fabulous dinner...and maybe a card game as a thank you (warning we get competitive, but if you ever play with our father in law, watch out, he is dangerous and will win the entire game before you know what happened!!).

Most of the pictures I took were of the walls, I was trying to capture the paint colors which after a little snooping we found to be Sherwin Williams Morning Fog and Benjamin Moore Carrington Beige.  After coming home I ran to Lowe's to get samples of course and they seem a bit dark for the lighting in my house. I may have to add some white to lighten them a bit because these shades are to die for, I will find a way to make them work.  Check it out:

This beige is what I wanted in my bedroom all along, we will have to see if it actually ends up looking like this but folks, this is it.  Now for some real eye candy pro picks from the listing.  I know my pictures leave you wanting more:

Isn't it so much fun to feel like you lived in this home (or any vacation home) if only for a week?  I am still in love and this may be the only thing that gets me through the nasty, cold winters here in PA.  Anyone take a vacation this year?  We would love to hear about it!  And for my own pleasure if anyone has any amazing pictures of beaches with blue water please send them my way :)

See you swoon,


  1. Beautiful! I love beach homes with a pool. This already makes me miss summer and it's not even fall yet.
    I have to say, I LOVE LOVE LOVE those kitchen countertops. I have white cabinets in my kitchen (with ugly formica counters we are dying to replace) and the counters in your beach house are what I would pick if I had an unlimited budget!

  2. I would love to live at that beach house! What beautiful photos you shared!

  3. Heather - they were marble! We were kind of stunned they'd put it in a rental, but they were gorgeous and only a little stained where the coffee pot was. I so want marble too. Until I can get my own, I will live vicariously through the beach house.
