Since Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial kick-off of summer, I’ve had beaches – and everything they entail: houses, boats,wicker – on my mind a lot lately.

Dreaming of beach homes and their whitewashed beauty led me to A Beach Cottage, a lovely house blog from Down Under. The entryway of the house features a vintage oar coat rack, loads of summery whites and beautiful hardwoods. The subtle tans and blues round it out to create a stylized, yet serene and welcoming space.
