Welcome to My Beach Cottage Fantasy

Welcome to my beachy cottage fantasy! You may already know me from my main site, Hooked on Houses. My dream is to someday live in a cottage by the beach--but in the meantime, I'm going to live vicariously through Beach Cottage Love. If I find a beautiful home near the water somewhere in the world, then I'll be featuring it here. I hope you'll come along and dream big (and beachy) with me!

  1. Hi Julia, I like your new blog! I also like the beach style of decorating. It reminds me also of the Scandinavian style that I love so much. Becki

  2. Mmmmm...great idea, Julia! I will be dreaming right along with you!

  3. I LOVE beachy. I live nowhere near a beach and chances are I never will so I have chosen to do what I can to make my home have that laid back look that I LOVE. Although my husband thinks I'm making a HUGE mistake. So, I would really appreciate your view on this. Can a non water home get away with that beachy look? AND if it can, do you think white trimwork is a better choice than cream?

  4. This is my dream too. I SO want to live by the water someday. It could be a log cabin in the woods on a lake or a cottage on a beach -- as long as I can walk out my front door and jump into the water :-)

    Gorgeous picture -- the chandelier is amazing!!

  5. Beautiful new blog, Julia. I love the beach cottaage style as well. I'll be stopping by for a nice, relaxing getaway now and then!

  6. Yay Julia! I am thrilled you started a blog about beach cottages! Will you have blog parties here too? I love hooked on fridays...can't wait to see what you come up with!!

  7. Blue and white and sand all over! YESSS! I realise it is a bit of a fantasy, and that you still have to do the laundry, dishes, shopping, ironing etc.. but it is my fantasy.

    Like Suzann, my husband thinks I am mad :(

    many thanks
    Art and Architecture, mainly


I'm so glad you stopped by. Kick off your flip-flops and stay awhile! ~Julia :-)
