Coastal Living Ideas

Summer has come to an end and we are reminiscing on our time spent in the Hamptons over the past few months. We decided to dedicate a post to a favorite little house on the bay in Westhampton Beach, NY!

The first bedroom and our favorite is right off the kitchen. Two walls are full of windows making it almost feel like a sunroom with all of the natural light that shines in. The views of the bay are endless and it has it’s own private bathroom. We loved the blue and white striped duvet, the simplistic nature of no clutter and the white wispy curtains. The other bedrooms are similar in style, seemingly decorating with the view in mind. Downstairs is more playful, with a kids bedroom and brighter colors.

The great room upstairs has a wall full of knick knacks that clearly has taken years to collect and a great deal of meaning to the owners, it’s fun, eclectic and bound to be a conversation starter that will go hand in hand with the makeshift bar they’ve created right below.There's no TV upstairs, which we love, it forces you to enjoy the company, play a board game or cook a great meal. It's like going back in time and with a big deck overlooking the beautiful bay who needs a tv anyway?

Of course you need a bar! We love how they've used an old desk/cabinet and turned it into a great makeshift bar. It adds rustic character to the living room and is a fun gathering spot for guests. 

The downstairs has three bedrooms, a bathroom, it's own living area and even a sauna to release stress and truly feel like your on vacation. With slipcovered furniture and white wood coffee table & accent tables, the whole space feels light and airy perfect for just coming in from the beach. 


Nautical elements are a key theme throughout the entire house. For the shower curtain a sail cloth is used and for hooks old boat cleats hang bath towels. Again, we love how much white is in this beach home. There's nothing better in our opinion than crisp white interiors with a touch of accent colors inspired by the salt, sand & sea. 

Of the many bedrooms in the house almost all of them have a stunning view of the bay. There is nothing like waking up to the sounds of the current coming in and sailboats cruising just outside your window.

Escape to an island...

Saint Barthélemy is one of the Northern Islands in the Lesser Antilles archipelago. Located at 18° North and 63° West in the extreme northeastern corner of the Caribbean Sea, Saint Barts is 4,200 miles from Paris, 1,700 miles from New York and 14 miles to the southeast of Saint Martin.

The island of St. Barts attracts many guests from all over the world and as luck should have it, there are many beautiful places to stay scattered all over the island. One of the most luxurious island villas with the most amazing vantage point is located at the furthest coast on the peninsula of Mont Jean is Jay - Amis du Vent.

It’s a place where each element has been carefully chosen to blend the interior with the exterior, so there is lots of stone, wood features, warm, rich fabrics and fresh colors which define the Mediterranean style.

It’s easy to relax and soak in the sun at Jay - Amis du Vent with your own private solar heated pool, including outdoor dining and BBQ grill area.

This is the perfect place for a luxurious vacation with family or friends or simply a romantic getaway. This exceptional villa is an essential element that makes Saint Barts the perfect little paradise.

In Saint-Barthélemy the climate is tropical, hot all year round, with a relatively cool season, from December to April, called "the Lent", and a warm and humid season, from May to November, called "the Wintering", though the latter actually resembles everything but winter, because it is a sultry period, in which the sun shines, but there are also showers or thunderstorms, especially in the afternoon.

The temperature varies little throughout the year: the minimum goes from 23 degrees Celsius (73 °F) in the period from January to March, to 26 °C (79 °F) in the period from June to September, while the maximum goes from 29 °C (84 °F) to 32 °C (90 °F). In the hot and humid period, however, sea breezes temper the heat.
