Owning a beach house is not all fun and games. Each time you stay over you find so much more that needs to be done – and don’t even get me started on the cleaning!

We have now owned our slice of heaven for just over a year and since the beginning we have tried to make it ours. We started by choosing a simple colour palette – beach sand taupe/brown and teal blue with splashes of white.  Then the big buy started – beds, couch, tables, bedding and appliances. After this, the lovely task of painting the house…

We decided to DIY the painting… and we hated every minute of it. Now, more than a year later, we only have to paint the skirting and doors with enamel paint – and add a bit of art.
