Naturally Hamptons

Re-create This Look

 Hamptons Style

Here is a lovely, elegant example of Hamptons style.

It's a stylish mix of soft, understated neutrals
with plenty of natural light 
seaside textures and chic details.
Oh, and did I mention
the pefect location, right on the beach!

Sea Green Inspiration

I'm loving this colour for both fashion and decor.
I have plenty of this colour in my summer wardrobe.
I also love decorating with sea green vintage glass bottles
and float glass bowls.
They look great displayed on mantels and open shelving.

Coastal Blues


Fun things have been planned for the weekend.

Friends have hired a boat for a big birthday bash ~
there will be champagne and a sunset sail.
A long bike ride with the kids is on the agenda
and hopefully some time to relax.

Happy Weekend!

Port Fairy Road Trip

I tend to not post photos of myself  - you loose a bit of interest in having your photo taken at age 47 but I am now thinking it might nice to share a few more photos of day trips and weekends away, pictures of the pristine beaches that surround us and our beautiful new house (... coming soon). My husband and I both love photography so it will be nice to share a few of our photos.

 This is a road trip we took over summer to a pretty little fishing village called Port Fairy. The weekend was spent boating, fishing and indulging in plenty of freshly caught seafood, sadly none of which was caught by us!

Paint It Aqua!

Aqua Beach Chic

 Summer Picks


I am a great believer in breathing new life into an old piece of furniture.
It's an amazing what a lick of paint can do
to a piece of pre-loved furniture.
It may be old fashioned, unwanted or just looking a bit worn and shabby
but a splash of colour and a bit of TLC can do wonders
giving it charm and character
that others never knew existed!

Natural Textures

As you are well aware I am big into textures for beach house decorating.
I love that casual, lived in feel created
when straw baskets are lying around
laden with towels, linen or magazines.
I like interesting vignettes created with 
cane, driftwood, shells and rustic timbers ~
elements that remind us that we are close to the beach.
