Well, I don't know what happened to my 1st blog but I've heard this is 'show your entry and foyer' week - so for me, it's the perfect time to begin again. I hope my entry keeps you wanting to come back for more to see what's new around our place and to check out our Chandeliers and other vintage lighting.
My kids call this Peace & Love because of the design in the swing which cracks me up. A few years ago my neighbor moved and couldn't take the swing so they hauled it over here and it's perfect - really solid even has the perfect crickety squeak.
I found the Sconces at the Santa Monica Flea Market - they were freshly painted black and they just weren't right so I painted them white and made them look aged and weathered and I love em. Couldn't decide what Chandelier to put right here and when my contractor friend brought this one over that he rescued that day up it went. It's been there a few years weathering and getting all chippy-love that!
If you can see the Adirondack chairs and rockers on the Porch - they're great and I would never admit this to Mr Beachy but it's a little bit of a regrettable purchase. We overpaid and they're such good quality they'll never weather or look old-bummer. But they're solid and steady and comfortable and they're here because I wanted them really badly.
Our Beach Bum doormat gets much use and paves the way for everything imperfect. There's a cool old cement Peacock statue to greet you and a pile of inspirational rocks the kids have set out. Come on in!
PS Gotta figure out how to change the order of the photos and a few other things...
From our little old California Beach House we create custom Chandeliers and Lighting using old and new parts found at flea markets, garage sales and thrifts along the coast.
We live a laid back casual life style - mostly white decor, always creating, redesigning and whitewashing.
It's all about mixing old for comfort, new for fresh and everything inbetween that just makes you feel good.
We love lighting, vintage pillows and bedding, vintage table linens, old china, seashells and shell art, beach art, market bags, baskets, sea style wall decor, signs, frames, stationery, jewelry - everything faded, loved, striped and nautical.
Everyday is a day at the beach.
