VIP Home: Designing My Dream Beach Cottage

take me away_VIP

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Ah…summer is OFFICIALLY here, and I simply cannot get my mind off the beach *wink*

Recently, I have been watching a lot of HGTV’s Beachfront Bargain Hunt, and it has me craving a cute, colorful cottage on some beach…somewhere *cue Blake Shelton* I have always wanted to live in a little cottage right on the beach, and my head is full of so many ideas about how I would adorn the rooms with chic and nautical decor–thanks, Pinterest *wink* So, for this week’s VIP Home, I am going to daydream away to some beach, somewhere to where my perfect dream beach cottage sits *wink*

Now, take a look at the inspiration board below + check out Pinterest here for more pretty pictures!
