Hi.

Welcome!  I'm Virginia, I started this blog as an outlet for my obsession of beautiful home design, landscape design, cooking, entertaining and DIY projects.  I hope that you will be inspired to browse my collection of photos and ideas that I have found in magazines, blogs and on-line to help you design or remodel you house, beach house or outdoor living area.  I love finding new interior designers or architects that impress me enough to blog about.  I have been a foodie forever and I love to create menus and entertain.  Also, I love beautiful tablescapes, fabrics, flowers and the list goes on....

Beach Pretty House Tours-A Coastal Retreat in Jamestown, Rhode Island

Beach Pretty House Tours-A Coastal Retreat in Jamestown, Rhode Island

I am seriously gushing over this Coastal Retreat in Jamestown,  Rhode Island. As you arrive, the house sits far down a winding driveway, sea grass that lines the driveway, is swaying in the beautiful ocean breeze.  This house is designed by DiMauro Architects, has every lovely detail a coastal retreat requires to be a restful sanctuary.  My favorite details in a beach house are windows with pretty details, a lovely nook with the sun shining on me, where I can spend an hour reading, an open kitchen with so much natural light shining in  and the  who doesn't want an amazing stone fireplace to cook pizza? ... A beautiful and a definite luxurious splurge, but my favorite place  in this beach house is in the backyard,  the terrace sits high above the water, I would sit out there with a refreshing cocktail, a seabreeze would be perfect, I would day dream  while I watched the the white sailboats dance in wind.   This backyard is simply stunning, every detail from the grey slate terrace, the outdoor bar, beautiful pool, rambling stone walls showcasing the vivid colorful and glorious wild flowers, which was designed by landscape designer, Atlantic Lawn and Garden.  The amazing photographs were captured by Warren Jagger.
