Six Steps to Exotic Beauty

So I'm spending my Sunday catching up on reading my favorite blogs and magazines...and wanted to share this amazing home courtesy of Coastal Living.  I love the style of this Manhattan Beach home.  It's really inspiring me to redecorate some of the living spaces in my home.  But I must finish my current projects which is my closet re-do and my guest bedroom (stay tuned for photos in future posts).

Once those are completed, I just may do a little bit of redecorating in my family room.  That is the beauty of slipcovers...I've been telling my husband that we need a new set made...so that we don't "over use" the current set.  So far, he is groaning a little bit but it seems to be working.  I didn't mention that we may have to do more slipcovers for the dining chairs so they don't clash...thats all in due time.  

So here are some photographs of this amazing home....









Hope you enjoyed these photographs...check out Coastal Living for more inspiration. Have a wonderful week!

Sooo nice to see you posting! I'm like you - I love opening my issue of Coastal Living. It always transports me away to some exotic place.

So..slipcovers...and then, surely, you will need a new pillow or two?;>) xo Diana

It certainly looks wonderful. Clean lines, warm fresh colours and a refreshing openness.
