My Beachy Home Decorating

I figured before summer ends, I should take some time to post pictures of the beachy decor I used in my living and dining room. I live in a townhouse (whoop whoop for townhouse living!) and our first floor has an open floor plan. The living room and dining room flow into each other actually.  I love the openness and how we are so connected from room to room.  Our last home had small choppy rooms in the living spaces so I greatly appreciate our current layout.  We actually rent our home and we are happy to do so.  Maybe I can speak a little more on the benefits of renting in another post, but for now, I will show you some of the beachy touches I added to our dining and living room areas.  Excuse the wall color and wallpaper border…those are the next things to conquer on my personal to-do-list.  I see much scraping and painting in the near future!
Luckily we are able to paint and make this house our home – our landlord is the best!

Beachy DecorSo here are some pictures of my home with my favorite beachy decor…

This is my cozy living room – my favorite part are my white slipcovered Ikea couches.I will have to tell you all about them in another post.
I adore them!

Beachy Living Room 5I have a thing for Homegoods, too as you can see by my pillows.
The coffee table was last week’s $10 yard sale find.
I bought it to paint and sell, but it hasn’t left my living room yet.

Beachy Living Room 12I actually need to wash my slipcovers next week…once the girls return to school.

Beachy Living Room 11My plush rug is from Mohawk…it is incredibly soft under your feet.

Beachy Living Room 4I changed my decor completely this year since the move…it used to be red and gold and I completely
switched it up since we moved last fall.

I love the change!Beachy Living room 3This is my favorite dresser of all.
It was one of my first real painting projects so it is quite meaningful to me.
On top of the dresser is some subway art work I painted a year or so back.

Beachy Living Room 7 - Embracing ChangeThis is my wicked cool sofa table that I painted in Miss Mustard Seed’s Ironstone Milk Paint.
I love to change it up with the seasons.

Beachy Living Room 8 - Embracing Change

Beachy Living Room 8- Embracing ChangeThis burlap wreath moves around the house depending on the season.
During the fall, it will be hung on my front door.I made it – you can make one too…click HERE to see how to do so!

Beachy Living Room 15This is our dining area.
The Ikea dining room table and chairs were a Craigslist find.
I don’t think I have anything new in my house…I love to find a good bargain 🙂
My husband just hung this wrought iron chandelier last week.
I found it for just $20!

Despite renting our home, I want to make this house our HOME.
I have a thing for this natural rug as well…it has the look of jute, but it is much softer on the feet – thank you Homegoods.

Beachy Living Room 14I love my mahogany buffet.
I got it for a song off of Craigslist.
Despite my passion of painting furniture, I like to mix up wood pieces with painted pieces in my home.

Summer decorating is fun, but fall is coming!I look forward to changing things up a bit in preparation for the season...fall is just around the corner after all.
