Beach House Love

Have you ever been to Water Color, Florida? It is a planned beach community on Santa Rosa Beach (close to Destin, Fl) They have the cuttest beach houses, in fact I found one for sale for a mere 3.3 million. Take a look.......

Love those HUGE vases!!

and those drapes on the top porch

Great beachy colors...calming and relaxing!

Amazing blue glass tile backsplash

Rattan headboard...perfect for a beach house bedroom

I Love the aqua colored paint!

Check out that sink

Imagine sitting out here with candles lit and a glass of wine..awe!

Crisp white linens keep this bedroom serene

Amazing detail in the ceiling of the lookout tower of the home

Cute nautical bathroom

Is this adorable or what?!

Hope you enjoyed the tour!

Now excuse me while I go get my checkbook!

What a great house, and thanks for featuring it, as I picked up a few ideas for our family beach house! Lovely home... but ouch! That's a lovely price tag to match.

Yep, I have been there. It's gorgeous. And this particular house has such nice beachy and nautical features too. More an more of these communities seem to be emerging, in many other states as well.

Ok. SOLD! I'll check the petty cash drawer and see what I can come up with. Whew! Got my creative juices flowing though as I've been trying to get a beachy theme going in my bedroom for a while now.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Ah. If only I could win that lottery somehow that I don't buy tickets for. I bought some painters drop cloths to use as curtains for our covered deck, must get those installed soon, love the look!

I can recommend a place near where I live. The Castle Hill Resort (Hotel + Cottages) in Newport RI, which has a lovely private beach, where lounge chairs and umbrellas await. And Newport is famous for its mansions and cliff walk. It's got lovely piers with restaurants and shopping... You can find it on this post(last picture): Seaside Cottage Rentals

Also..., would you consider a link exchange? I went ahead and added you to my blogroll..., and now, of course I'm curious where you'll end up going!

What a beautiful home! Since the village is name Water Color...must all the homes be painted in cool, watery colors!?!?!? That sounds beautiful and so beachy
