Shabby Chic Beach House












I love the relaxed and inviting feel of these 'Shabby Chic' style beach houses.
They sum up all the things I love about beach houses :-
must be painted white inside and out
limed or chalked floorboards
plenty of natural light
big open windows and french doors
painted ceiling or lining boards
rustic, distressed furniture
and big, comfy sofas.
Now, have I missed anything?
