Monday Musings: Beach Chic

The Fuller View
We hope you all had a wonderful weekend! It was a gorgeous one here in NC, and, frankly, we aren’t ready for it to be over! Are we ever really ready, though?

The Beaufort house is finally looking like it might come together! The paint color samples looked great, and the door and window frames and moldings are mostly up. Next comes the paint, floors, kitchen, etc.

We are shamelessly daydreaming of the days when it will all be finished, although, this really has been one of those times that the journey has been as amazing as the destination will hopefully be. We’re getting inspired just looking at all these beautiful photos!

Natural beauty is the best!

Binoculars are a beach necessity. If they’re antique, all the better!

Love the shabby chic!

This color scheme is quintessentially coastal.

Who says silver needs to be polished to perfection? Between boat rides and sunbathing, who has the time?

The ties on these drapes are perfection. So casual, yet chic.

A chaise is great anywhere!

We hope we nailed this fantastic water blue for the backs of the dining room bookshelves.
Old buoys are almost as good as the water behind them! 
We hope your Monday is as fun as your weekend was!

    I can only imagine how gorgeous Beaufort will be!

  12. Happy long weekend ladies! I have so enjoyed an extra day of having my kiddos and hubbie around. They did a day ski trip (one advantage of living this far north) and I’ve gotten a few things done around the house.

    Starting to work on the “interior decor” phase of our renovation…I have been waiting patiently for the “green light”. So inspired by your project and these photos!
