Relaxed, beachy, simple … and simply beautiful. What’s not to love about this Amagansett beach cottage by NYC and Hamptons based interior designer Marie-Christine McNally of Marie-Christine Design? A neutral colour palette elevated by the use of texture, an eclectic mix of new and old, nothing overly precious or pretentious, just welcoming timeless design perfect for a beach getaway.
It’s a holiday where I live. A three day weekend to get away, relax, rewind. The Cape Beach House designed by Uneek Interior Solutions in the Northern New South Wales coastal town of Byron Bay is a stylish bed and breakfast redolent of that laid-back sun, sand and surfing riff. Unfortunately the border between Queensland and New South Wales is closed and although this fab beach house is only a couple of hours away for now I’ll have to daydream of a future stay.
Certainly no beach shack this Hamptons weekender for a young city couple is part mid century, part transitional, a little whimsical and always with a subtle sophistication. I never understand why people actually leave these “weekenders” to return to the work-a-day rat race. I’d be investigating work from home options. Bridgehampton home by interior design studio Dumais.

Did someone say they’re dreaming of escaping for a little beach side R & R? How about this beach shack brimming with colour and pattern? Southern Island Charmer by Charleston, SC based interior design firm Jenny Keenan Design.

I am loving these spaces by Newport Beach, California interior design firm Prairie. Bright and inviting, modern yet warm. A definite California vibe that draws you in with its charm and doesn’t want to let go.
