Certain types of homes simply take your breath away and shingled cape cods are like that for me. Now, add a beach as a backyard and you know we have something special here.
Designed by Wendi Young Design, this home show us why so many dream about living by the ocean. Views, breeze and light, this beach house is the kind of place that makes you feel relaxed and at ease.
Coastal influences are subtle but defining. Elegance and timeless materials are used in various spaces, making this home feel balance from room to room.
Take a little break and let’s start this week feeling good!
Shingled Cape Cod Beach House
Front entries are so important to decorate. It shows that you care and love your home.
Adding planters on both sides of the door, makes this entry feel inviting and welcoming. The tall plants are Camellias.
Front door was custom made by a local craftsman and flooring is slate.
The foyer is charming, uncomplicated and subtly coastal.
I love the idea of adding a lightweight rug and a round table.
Coastal Living Room Design
The decor is impeccable, but I would love this room even if it was empty… that view is what you really want!
A pair of Charles of London style sofa faces each other bringing comfort and plenty of space for family and friends.
Light fixture is by Circa Lighting.
This is a beautiful kitchen with a very practical floorplan — perfect for narrower homes.
Pendants are “Acquatinta Pendant Light” designed by Michele de Lucchi.
Coastal-inspired Family Room
The symmetry and colors in this family room are very soothing.
The cabinet pulls are made by Gado Gado.
Furnishings are by “Baker Furniture”.
I love spaces that you don’t get tired to look at, and this powder room is just like that! Calm and oh, so pretty!
Sconces are “For Town by Michael S. Smith Wall Sconce”.
Laundry Room Design
This laundry room is practical, pretty and not too serious! Let’s have fun where nothing fun happens! 😉
I really like the yellow wallpaper, floors and the full height cabinets.
Sunny Coastal Bedroom
This bedroom is cheerful and very comfortable. I love the idea of having a built-in daybed in my bedroom. It would be a nice place to read or daydream.
The walls are covered in Madagascar wallcovering, available through Kneedler-Fauchere in Los Angeles.
We’ve found a perfect bathroom! It’s like taking a bath in heaven! Look at that view! 🙂
Isn’t this adorable? If you have enough space, always place a dresser between twin beds. It will offer more storage and it looks better than two nightstands.
Artwork is by “Swan Papel”.
Many thanks to the designer, Wendi Young Design, for sharing the details above.
You guys know how much I love coastal homes, right? I really enjoy preparing posts about spaces I am passionate about… can you feel that? 🙂
During this entire weekend I tried to be a little calmer and more focused. I was so tired and down last week and to be very honest, I was feeling a little overwhelmed and sad. My grandma has Alzheimer’s and although she’s doing okay, I know she’s not the same towards me anymore. She raised me, so it is being really hard for me. She stills remembers everyone and everything, but some days she seems to be colder, others she’s like how she used to be. It’s just confusing and painful sometimes.
So, I took this weekend to think and try to understand my heart. I was feeling very lonely and I couldn’t understand why. Now I know it’s because I haven’t had one of our talks for months now. My grandma always knew me so well, and she would see me and know if I was happy or if anything was wrong with me. She can’t notice that anymore and I miss that between us.
Being able to say this, or better, to think this is not easy, but sometimes we need to put our guards down and say what is in our heart. The moment we start wanting to understand what’s inside, is the moment we start to heal.
Everything changes in life. Nothing stays still and the only thing that will never change is everything she once did for me and my sister. I am always trying to remember how she treated me while raising my own children. I hope to be a good mom as she has always been to me.
When you see things changing, you realize that you must do more in life than simply let the days go by. You start understanding that time is limited and you have to wake up.
Perhaps, we shouldn’t waste our time with small problems or making them to be bigger than they really are. And this is an important one, don’t spend time with people that belittle you. Know how important you are. Life is short and this moment is too precious to be wasted.
Love and allow yourself to be loved. Share the best you have, share your gifts… and make sure to live this life showing how much you care about those that are always supporting you.
Pay attention on how you make the people you love feel, because that–my friends — that stays forever.
