This cute and simple cottage belongs to the Finnish owners of Mjölk, a Scandinavian design shop in Toronto. The original cottage was “musty, moldy, and stuck in the seventies” but an extensive renovation transformed it in a lovely summer home. The whole inspiration for this cottage was the “Finnish summer home”. We liked the idea of bringing back the cottage to it’s original state with natural pine floors, and simple practical furniture. We wanted the pieces we chose to furnish the cottage with to feel as if they had always been there.”This house would translate beautifully to a seaside village anywhere in the world!

I would love to go back to the Greek Islands one day ~
not only is the scenery breathtaking
the sunshine endless
the locals friendly
but the food is delicious!

Natural Fibres







Add a little natural charm to your beach house with washed linens, tie dyed textiles, handwoven rugs, textured throws, and chunky knits. I am loving all the embellished details I am seeing on cushions, throws, drapes and bedding at the moment. Bedspreads and with pom poms and bedding with lace and crocheted trim adds

Summer Whites

Boho Chic

White is my 'go to' basic fashion summer colour.
It is perfect for every occasion,
the beach, cocktail party or simply 'hanging out' at home.
Maybe it's the fact that it looks so good 
against a sun tan and glowing skin.
There's something about white on a hot summer's day
that makes you feel fresh and cool.
I am loving this retro seventies, boho look from Anthropolgie.

Neutral Ground











I really love neutral colours ... 

and the sense of peace and tranquility that comes from using such soothing tones....
This sweet Scandinavian home is a charming mix of restrained colours,
 artful styling, vintage chic and clever details. 
There's plenty of inspiring ideas here that could be worked into a beach house.
