Beach Dreaming for the Beach House

By

After all the wintry weather followed by a few warm days we all start a little “beach dreaming”.

Working on a beach house project has certainly put us in the mood to think ahead to “warm sunny days, white sands and a cold drink in our hands” as the song says!

Once again a brand new Company C rug was our inspiration.

Inspiration came from this Company C "To-Bay-Go" area rug!

We hope to incorporate some of these dreamy beach house accessories as we get this house ready for summer fun.

    Hi Alise:
    We purchased this fabric as a slipcover from Four Seasons Furniture but I found a link where you can purchase the fabric.http://www.brickhousefabrics.com/product/Coral-reef-fabric-starfish–shell-watercolor-40-.html

    Hope this help. Sorry for the delayed reply.

    Can you please tell me the name of the sea creature fabric from four seasons in this photo?

    Thanks, Sue. It seems we are starting a lot of projects with Compsny C. They really give us a color direction. You know how much we love color!

    I love the Company C rug and the slipcover material. Will look stunning in your Beach House.

    Love following your decorating and trips.

    Thanks, Nancy! Great comments! Agree about the coral lamp but maybe incorporate it in a small niche or bedroom. Not sure if we are actually using that piece yet. Most of the seating will be slipcovered for easy care. Glad to hear your slipcovered pieces work well for you. Yes, we hope to reveal the finished project as it is completed.

    We love it, looks like the perfect beach house! So glad our rug was your source of inspiration too!

    Love the whale wall hanging, sea creature pictures and the small chest (storage is always needed). Not so fond of the coral lamp……looks beautiful but in real life I am afraid it will be a dust catcher and will be in constant need of a good wipe off. Rugs and fabric are beautiful….but can they take sun and sand? Are you doing slipcovers or upholstery? I know in my lake house I have slipcovers in one area and upholstery in another….wish I had stuck with slipcovers all around….so much easier to keep looking nice and you don’t have to caution the kids to put a towel down before they sit down!

    Have a great time decorating the beach house….hope we get a final look~see!
