Beach house makeover

A few weeks ago, I mentioned the makeover taking place at my lovely friend Suzi's house. Well, the house is being painted throughout at the moment, so while that's happening, I thought I'd show you some of the things we'll be using in her design scheme. Oh, and this is the kinda ok view from her back deck:

we both absolutely LOVE this room, which is our starting point

Here are a few of the pieces (or similar) that we plan on using.

...and we have something very special in store for some of these beauties:

So, what do you think? It does help when you live in a gorgeous location like Suzi does, but really, I think this style works well anywhere. I'll keep you posted on the progress, once the painters are finished.

Have a great weekend everyone,


  1. "Swish delish!"
    Created by you, coined by me.
    Can't wait for the unveiling.


  2. Well, I was about to go to bed when I saw your new post. Sat down for 1 minute & became entranced. Those little mirrors on each side of the bed actually WORK don't they? I would never have thought of this. Love the silver lamps. But when got to the wrought iron gates I stopped in my tracks. The view is totally awesome and that alone is worth living in a travel trailer, but what you're doing will make this home spectacular. I will be following along. xx's

  3. Kerri,

    Fabulous design..... I adore the choices for the master!
