I considered this mermaid tile for a second, but $$$

We bought a beach house last month and decided to turn it into an airbnb.

Construction is already under way in the Olivia Beach community and we are 2.5 months away from completion! Which means I have about another 2-3 weeks to finish up any design decisions, figure out paint colours, order the bathroom vanities, floor tiles, shower tiles and finish pricing out the engineered hardwood.

Here’s what the Powder Room + Kitchen will look like. My next project?

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.

We’ve had a great experience thanks to the amazing team at Olivia Beach. I know we are spoiled, because with any other builder – it is rare to be allowed this much customization.

I made some decisions on the design of our main floor powder room already.

Have you stayed at an airbnb before?

Paul and I recently moved to Portland and our plan was to buy a one bedroom condo in the Pearl District, live in it for at least two years and then decide if we were going to stay in the city or rent the condo out to travel.

Well that plan didn’t work.

First off, there was a lack of supply of units that we liked and what worked in our price range. Finally, when we did find the perfect combination of the two – we ended up in a bidding war with two other parties and lost out to an offer that waived an inspection and bank appraisal.

I was over it. (more…)

Beach House Design Ideas: The Powder Room

Bathroom-Makeover

Love this makeover by Bless’er House

We bought a beach house last week and it’s going to be built in the Olivia Beach community in Lincoln City in just three months! Which means I need to get a hustle on any major design decisions asap.

My first project?

I decided to tackle the main floor powder room because it was a small room to start off with. I also chose this room in case any of the items I needed were on backorder. The floor tile I picked out takes 8-10 weeks to deliver, so it’s a good thing to get a move on. (more…)

We’ve got some super exciting news to share with you today!

Paul and I just bought a Beach House! We are so excited about this journey and of course I’ll be sharing lots of details on the blog soon. It’s crazy to think about because we came up with this idea about 2 weeks ago and had only lived in Portland for maybe 3.5 months so far.  (more…)
