Beach Cottage White

Hi All
I had planned to style, shoot and blog about a blue and white tablescape today, but the Beach House Brat rang me from school to say he was getting an award at assembly this afternoon and was I coming?  'Yes of course I am coming darling boy....what do you think I am a forgetful shrew who would rather foof around the house preening in the dining room, than coming and watching you receive an award.  All the while sitting through yet another one of those school assemblies, where the guy sitting next to me has to sing the second verse of the National Anthem at the top of his voice that is never generally sung in Australia and no one knows anyway.  Yes my darling of course I'm coming.'

Well I went and I must say they had all the best bits the school offers on show today and I don't know why but the medley of Queen songs played by one of the school bands made me well up, as did the school song.  Not sure why, but there you go!

The Beach House Brat then convinced me to sign him out for the afternoon.....because 'Everyone else is doing it mum'.......  I relented, but the fact that he has just missed a week of school cause of our ski trip did not sit so well with me.  But a little boy hugging me and crying into my belly button in the playground just sucker punched me!!!!  I said yes as long as he read Club Penguin for 15 minutes before he did anything else....which, God love him, he has just duly executed.

Anyway the up shot is that I am not bringing you the blue and white tablescape, but rather this gorgeous little white beach cottage that oozes casual beach cottage style.  An all white house is just a dream for me, but I love to look in any case.  This one looks like there are kids involved with this tepee in a playroom.  And don't forget to check out the bunk room in the last shot.  I would love one of theses in my beach house.

The large light fittings are also my kinda thing.
This gorgeous home is currently for sale in Palm Beach.  Click here for more info if you like.

Hope you are all having a great week.

Postscript:  I got around to the blue and white tablescaping and also made over my porch.  You can see that here if you like.

  6. Love each and every photo...so much seen in these rooms would be in my dream beach house. We just came back from a beach vacation...in a condo that had many clashing colors. All I could do was think to myself, "I would change...". In spite of the colors, it was a lovely place...especially the view!!! (I did restyle the shelves. :-D )
