We’re currently blogging from the beach. Now before you get jealous let me just say that it’s about 20 degrees outside and we even got some light snow last night. But we’re loving the chance to relax and recharge at John’s parents’ lovely beach house just outside of Rehoboth, Delaware.
They recently purchased the house and it’s amazing how comfortable and homey they’ve been able to make it in mere months. And while we’ve spent our time playing board games, reading, watching movies, and snuggling Burger- we thought we’d take a quick break to share some fun decor ideas with you.
First, meet the beautiful beach house (love those starfish in the window above the door):
And now for a little inspiration. How cute (and functional!) are these toiletries displayed in a decorative basket with shells:
All the kitchen accessories are red, from the coffee-maker to the toaster to the tea kettle. So cheerful and fun:
And for the first time in over three months we had a functioning kitchen at our disposal, and boy did we take advantage of it. Among many delicious homemade meals, we feasted on this tomato, basil, and mozzarella pizza:
We’ll be returning to Richmond tonight, and while we’ve certainly been enjoying every second of our mini break from home improvement, I’m sure we’ll be wielding a hammer or a paint brush within a few hours of returning home. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Your remodeling cost layout, descriptions, and photos are terrific, very helpful examples and records of what you did (accomplished).
And thanks for the cool beach commentary; I especially liked the photography – although a bit disappointed in the absence of interior garage photos (“Here’s John at the work sink” would have been good, for example).
There are many good photo ops that we missed. For example: Here’s John cleaning up after that other dog. Or, Here’s Sherry running around screaming “I love this place.” So much fun. Can’t wait to go back this summer. Or maybe sooner…
We LOVE Rehoboth! We go every summer! Have you ever gone camping at Cape Henlopen? Super cheap and great beach access!
SarahB- Never been camping at Cape Henlopen but we’ll definitely have to check it out!
Laura- Oh yeah, we’re Mac lovers through and through. And it was high time we upgraded from our old iBook to something with a bit more blogging power. Now we can edit images even faster and even store videos (we totally ran out of space on our old laptop) so we’re hoping it only enhances Young House Love from here on out!
