Chic Beach House

Hello world, I am back to reality!!! I was out of the country for 10 days on vacation! I set up my July 4th post ahead of time and scheduled it to post in my absence, so I am glad that worked!!!

As I get back into the swing of things, I wanted to share a few awesome photos I came across today on House Beautiful of his 1,650 sf weekend home in California by designers,  Erin Martin and Kim Dempster. Check out all the great nautical accents!

Buoy lights and linen french chairs

Old nautical chain coffee table, and large clam shell accent!

Vintage pull down map purchased on ebay is used to hide the tv

Master bedroom with high ceilings

Rope knot curtains and blue slag glass on coffee tables look like seaglass

Large root table painted white acts as make shift vanity

Nautical bunk bed space with porthole mirror
Nautical inspired bathroom with brass fixtures, lacquered striped walls

Outdoor entertaining and dining area

The living room fireplace was inspired by the work of sculptor Louise Nevelson. It's composed of scraps of wood from the project and various woodworkers' shops.

Exterior of the house perched upon a wild flower covered hill

What a view!


  1. Love this post!!! Want to pin everything :)

  2. Love the nautical theme in anything! These pictures are wonderful! I love the nautical chain coffee table! Thanks for your sweet comments! Glad you are back and had a fun trip!

  3. That was a fun issue. I liked that they actually showed small houses in their "small spaces" issue.

  4. Love this house!! :-) BTW, guess what I bought in Amsterdam: maps! Hehe, will frame them and show them on my blog when I get home!

  5. Great nautical inspiration. We are getting ready to do a beach house and love so many of these images!!

  6. Good to have you back! Love the vintage map idea...very creative!

  7. Loved this beautiful home in all its white-washed glory! We were just in Marin County a couple of weeks ago and decided that we'd live there in a heartbeat. Welcome back!
