{Design crush} tropical chic

I (re)found this home when rummaging through my inspiration folder the other day and fell in love all over again. This light and airy beach house warms my Floridan heart on these cold and rainy Dublin days.

The bright, bold palette of turquoise, green and yellow exudes a happy tropical vibe and when paired with simple clean white furniture and accessories, the look is fresh and modern. I love how the original old growth fir floors keep the space relaxed and grounded, while the painted white ceilings adds a cheerful, light fueled airiness. Color, texture and flea market finds, combined with a few high end pieces creates a delightfully preppy bohemian beach house chic!

  3. OK, so that is EXACTLY the color I've been picturing in my head for painting the front wall of my studio when I move back home... But where are the DWYL posts???

  4. lol so true! To be fair I actually wrote that post before I left - I just scheduled it to post a few days later :)

  5. i imagine you living in a place like this at some point in your life. i dont know if its the floridian in you or the puerto rican though! ;)

  6. Totally! Its already been decided (by me) that we'll be living in a turquoise house one day ;)
