Ahoy Mates

Beach House owners can often feels like a Captain of a ship, with so many guests and activity of friends, relatives, and guests of guests beach house guest. Back when pirates sailed the seas, they had a rather sneaky practice of keeping many of their crew below decks. Thus, when a merchant ship loaded with treasure caught sight of a pirate ship, only a few crew members would be visible. The pirate vessel could then capture the luckless ship by employing their below-decks crew. Honest captains kept their crew "above board." As a Interior Designer sneaking in as many guest rooms as possible into your beach house decor is important. Last weekend this beach house had 10 guests, this week it has had 7 last night, 5 tonight and this weekend it could be up to 10 again. Creatively the home looks like a neat beach house with only a few. Because there are beds stowed away in every nick and corner of the architectural design of this Beach house. A well planned out design when renovating or building a beach house, is single guests beds in as many places as possible when designing your beach house decor. The decor doesn't have to be anything but simple, airy, nautical, beachy, and practical with perhaps some hidden storage space. Living by the beach is a summer pleasure, one everyone wants to enjoy. So when decorating think single beds. Trust me, mates your going to need them. Because birds of a feather flock together.

Hi Barbara-

Just had some free time and thought I would check out your blog since you're always so nice on Twitter. Your blog is wonderful!

This is a great post...I, too, believe in simple, airy, beachy decor with a bit of fun thrown in here and there.

Hope you have a beachy weekend!

I love #2 and #4. I grew up with 12 siblings so my parents were experts of maximizing space, which I've obviously inherited.
