Traditional Old Greenwich Beach House
The moment you open the front door you notice the beautiful knotty pine plank flooring and millwork, which surrounds the circular window by the staircase.
This coastal living room has breathtaking ocean views and a cozy feel that I love.
In the dining room, an antique farmhouse table is beautifully decorated with vintage silver pieces. Simple and lovely!

Nothing is better than a classic white kitchen! This kitchen features clean lines, honed white marble, white subway tile as backsplash and warm hardwood flooring.
Pendant Lighting above island are the “Clemson Classic Single Pendant” from “Restoration Hardware”.
Located at the end of the room, the eating nook accommodates a simple decor that doesn’t distract or block the main feature of this space, which certainly is the view.
These beautiful doors lead out to an inviting deck.
Lobster & Champagne
Can you picture yourself having a delightful dinner overlooking the water?
Deck is made of natural mahogany. Mahogany might not be the cheapest choice for decking, but it is extremely durable and beautiful. Mahogany is practically splinter free – a plus if you have small children or like to walk barefoot on the deck.
Who would be happy to wake up to that view (and this decor) every day?
I am loving the blue and white motif in this room. It’s simple and not overwhelming… it feels beachy and relaxed!
… And this is why I can’t resist to a coastal home! This peace… this beauty… heavenly!
This home feels balanced and timeless.
Isn’t this a special place? The house is the first one from the right.
Sunbathing and dreaming. This is the best “medicine” for any kind of stress!
Home Sweet Home
Surrounded by blue hydrangeas and the beach… how not to fall in love with this place?
I also found a video of this home that shows how special this place is. Take a look if you have some extra time!

Isn’t this place dreamy? I can appreciate many interior styles and feel inspired by them, but coastal homes always have a special place in my heart. Living by the water, with neutral colors and comfortable furniture, this is how I really like to live!
