Beach House Design Ideas: The Kitchen


The inspiration from Nicole Davis Interiors

We bought a beach house last month and construction is moving along quickly! On our last visit the foundation was poured, the house had been framed, the plumbing was put in and we did our electrical walk through to figure out where all the lights and switches will go.

Our dining room needed a refresh.

Paul and I currently renting a very open-concept loft style apartment in Portland, Oregon. Since it’s a rental, I want it to feel cozy – but I don’t want to overdo it since I’m not sure how long we will be living in this specific unit.

It’s really easy to fill up a space with knick-knacks and big pieces of furniture, but if we ever downgrade into a smaller place – we’ll be stuck with a bunch of extra furniture. Which brings me to our dining room refresh project!

So how can you decorate efficiently, cheaply and still fill up a big space? (more…)
