Beach Cottage in the Bahamas

Beach House. Dream beach house ideas. #BeachHouse #DreamHome

 

Many of us try to take some weeks off during summer to relax somewhere far away from work, errands and that nosy neighbor. Imagine being able to pack your bags and get on a plane. Your destination? A tiny beachfront cottage in the Bahamas!

With simple neutral coastal interiors, this beach cottage is dreamy from beginning to end.  An open concept floorplan makes this small cottage feel more spacious while high ceilings bring an airy feel.

The decor in this cottage is yet another positive factor in this place. Subtle coastal decorative pieces are displayed in many areas, but what really predominates here is the clean and timeless architectural appeal found in details such as plank walls and wide plank wood flooring.

If the ocean brings peace to you, as it does to me, you will probably love to sit on the front porch and watch the sunset while hearing the waves crashing only a few steps away.

Now, go close the door (or your ears) to any noise outside. For the next couple of minutes you’re away for a virtual vacation… and we’re about to arrive in the Bahamas.

I hope you could take a break and relax for a while. I am trying to take it slow right now, just enjoying summer with my family and not many errands on my to-do list. I am not sure if we’ll travel, but just the fact that I don’t have to hear the alarm clock every morning is already a big plus for me. Summer is definitely my favorite time of the year!

Wishing you all a sunny, happy and healthy day!

We’ll talk more tomorrow!

with Love,
