Beach House Getaway

Had a lovely day at the beach in Connecticut today after meeting up with an old high school friend, Mackenzie Horan, of Design Darling. It is so nice to be able to escape the city to celebrate the last real summer weekend. Sitting on the beach looking at the waterfront home reminded me of this beach house in Better Homes & Gardens. Lots of blue hues and beach themes ....

{ Victorian-style headboard in the bedroom }

{ beach-themed accents }

{ different kinds of blue }

{ great outdoor seating area for entertaining and relaxing }

{ traditional beach cottage elements }

{ is there a better spot for a summer evening dinner than beachfront? }
