Escape the Winter Blues with Summer Blues

Check the date, it's Feb 9th this is about the time of winter when I have just about had enough of it! I am dying to shed my wool coat (even if it is adorable), peel off the layers and open the windows to let some fresh air in (my shriveled dried skin would be oh so happy). Just as I am about to go under the electric blanket I come across this Southhampton home in House Beautiful and just like that I am transported to July. A gorgeously warm day spent at this amazing beach house is just what I need. The variation of blue throughout the home evokes a relaxing vibe while the large picture windows make you feel like you are sitting in the sky! Come on let's go for a tour!


the guest house


The blue-green soothing great room with enough space for all the guests to gather and relax. Notice the lack of pattern in the fabrics? This leads to less movement by the eye and creates a purely calming space.




Screened in porch perfect for brunch, dinner and nightly board games! I love the reflection of the iron coffee table on the floor...the sun is definitely out!


Lounging on my favorite Janus et Cie furniture would be a little slice of heaven!




If you were to have your choice of any of the 3 bedrooms above, which one would be your pick to relax?


A clamshell sink?! The perfect way to bring the outdoors in!



A driftwood chandelier and artichoke lamp are the little accents which make this space oh so beachy!

When winter gets to be just a little too much how do you escape? If you have a favorite beach house photo please share with a link in the comments!

Well I best get back to my layered sweaters and warm scarf with the thought we are a bit closer to the warm days!

I'm utterly in love with the blue green great room. It's exactly the look I'm going for in our little cozy cottage in the woods. Hurry Summer!

So glad you all loved this beach house as much as I did!! Every room was just so relaxing. The urban girl in me loved the 3rd BR but if I really want to escape than I would have to choose the purple room!! Now if only we could all gather in the gorgeous great room! xo
