Inspired: Beach House Style

Inspired: Beach House Style

Do you ever go through phases with your home where you are feeling restless to do something new, or you know you want to make a few changes or adjustments, but you aren’t *quite* sure what you want to do next?

If you’re in limbo about where you’re headed next, finding the right look for the home you’re in can go a long way toward feeling not only inspired for your next project, but in making future decisions easier, too.

That’s one of the reasons I named my blog and business Onerror twelve years ago. It’s not just because I like to look at inspiration photos!

I don’t like to do a project just to do one, I want to be inspired to do it because it really speaks to me. So rather than busy myself with a random project, I’d rather wait until the right idea comes along. For that reason, I also turn down a lot of sponsored work or partnership opportunities because the project doesn’t inspire me or it doesn’t feel authentic in some way.

I want to feel connected to my home. Doing a project that doesn’t come from the heart or doesn’t form a deeper connection to where I live never feels right to me.

You know what I mean?

When I find an inspiration photo that speaks to me, it can spark the next creative step. Inspiration photos can also help me refine my vision for my home so I’m ready when the next creative mood strikes.

I love so many styles, but I do think that a coastal / beach house style suits this house and that definitely inspires me!

Daybed + Living Room (and Daybed Sources)

When we moved into this house we envisioned a window seat or bench under this back window in our living room. The view out the the mountains, water and sunsets was one of the selling features of the house, so creating a spot to relax and enjoy it made sense!

We had so many other projects to work on, though, that all dreams of built-ins had to be put off until a future year. Three years later, we are still awaiting the right time to tackle that project (but you can see a round up of the home projects we have worked on here!).

At some point we decided to go ahead and get a for this room as it would serve essentially the same purpose as a built-in window seat (and we could enjoy it right away).

This daybed has provided us an extra spot for guests, which we use often for our niece or nephew when they visit.

It’s been a very a cozy spot to curl up on to read, work, or watch the sunsets.

The daybed also serves as a regular couch for more seating, we just add a few more pillows behind us.

But of course, I have to say that I think our dogs are the most grateful for this spot. I’m sure they completely believe we provided this bed for them so they can experience the ultimate comfort every day. Ha, they certainly relax in this spot more than anyone else in the family.

It’s really an ideal piece of furniture in a home with dogs because you can easily keep it clean. Just like with a bed, you use normal sheets and blankets so you can just toss them in the wash. (Click here for my blog post about how to keep a house clean with dogs!).

Anytime I’ve considered moving the daybed to another room, I start to feel TERRIBLE and GUILTY and like a bad dog mom because our pups love it so much.

Most people probably haven’t thought about using a daybed in their main living room, but if you have room for one, there are many different styles that could work in a variety of spaces and rooms!

We think of our daybed as the best spot in the house!

Do you have anything in your home that you might think about moving, but then you feel guilty because someone else loves it?
