A Modern Beach House with Vintage Collections

This modern beach house impressed me with it's fabulous vintage collections and stunning driftwood pieces.

Many pictures will be a deja vu, but I hope you still enjoy the full tour. You might recall the living room, featured here: Sunburst Mirrors Made with Driftwood. What a great focal point!

vintage globe collection
Vintage Globes sit on top of the cottage style bookcase. The driftwood pieces complement this modern chic room beautifully, bringing organic textures to the space. Listed among top favorite Coastal Collections!

shell collection in bowl
Next to the lamp sits a basket-like pottery bowl with gathered shells.

seashell hook
Attention to detail. A simple photo canvas hangs from a seashell hook.

tiki theme sunroom
The sunroom sports a classy tiki room theme. I love the simplicity here! Fresh and uncluttered.

coastal travel trivets
Ceramic travel trivets sit on the trunk table.

vintage hula girls collection
And another vintage collection. Hula girls in shadow boxes placed above a rattan bookcase.

picture grouping on wall
And my favorite vintage collection! Paint-by-number seascapes, bought for a few dollars a piece in thrift shops and online auctions, previously featured here: How to Hang a Picture Grouping.

rattan dining room table
A little bit of tiki in the dining room with a 1940s rattan dining table.

driftwood shell mobile
And this lovely mobile made from driftwood and shells dangles from the ceiling on the front porch.

modern beach house
Located just south of Boston, not far from where I live, it's a good thing that I don't know the address of this Modern Beach House, or I'd be stalking it in real life.

So many simple touches in this fabulous home. I just them all. The shell hook is a favorite.

I love the hula girls and paint by numbers gallery. I still have a paint by numbers that my Mum painted when she was pregnant with me, 47 years ago, hanging in my art studio. Priceless!

The mirror, vintage globes, and mobile are my faves. Love that oar and simple wooden box, and the big bowl of shells, too! That is a beachy room!
