the best of the best beach reads

The Matchmaker by Elin Hilderbrand //  The Bungalow by Sarah Jio 
The Hurricane Sisters by Dorothea Benton Frank //  Wedding Night by Sopie Kinsella 
Where'd You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple //  The Accidental Bestseller by Wendy Wax
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty  //  Nantucket Sisters by Nancy Thayer   


Here are a few of my favorite Beach Reads from this summer. 
I admit, I'm an Audible.com addict right now… there is no other way I can squeeze 
in as many reads as I'd like to without listening to my novels on Audible.  
At the stage my kids are at right now, 
there is just no time for me to sit for more than 5 minutes at a time.  
Thank-goodness for Audible.com! I can listen to these great reads while 
cleaning, driving, or even while at the pool or beach 
without taking my eyes off my little ones.  

I always need my Charleston or Nantucket fix.  
Every summer I look forward to reading the new novels of my favorite two authors 
that set the plots of their novels in two of my favorite locations. 
Dorothea Benton Frank always writes about the magical South Carolina Lowcountry, 
and Elin Hilderbrand's novels are always set on the lovely and charming 
New England island of Nantucket. 

Make room in your beach bag for these fantastic novels and enjoy!

Also, don't forget to check out

beach jewelry & accessories!

Nantucket Surfside Beach House

"The colors of morning mist, foggy late afternoons and clear days adorn the interiors of this very hip, architecturally designed beach home still lending a presence of the old. A collaborative adventure with BPC Architecture and Cross Rip Builders, Rhett DuPont features visual and sensual forms. The textures, furnishings and lighting lend a style of casual elegance with a flair of femininity juxtaposed to the strong lines in the architectural field."

Hello Surfside Chic! 
Nantucket has some seriously amazing Beach Houses… 
I mean… serious. 
As a lover of Nantucket, of course I was drawn to this lovely home.
I recently returned from  trip to Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, & Boston.  
I'll post photos of my trip soon, along with some great suggestions on
where to stay and eat.  In the meantime, here are some
fantastic photos of this amazing collaboration between

Newport California Beach House

I gasped when I saw the design of this Newport, California Beach House.   
What I like most about it is the mix of styles. 
There is a little southern, eastern, and classic contemporary. 
It was designed by Brandon Architects Inc and they call it a Colonial Greek Revival.
 It is simple, timeless and coastal chic. 
The beautiful light pallet and coastal interiors were by Shannon Patterson 

Love the area above the house.  I'm sure there is an amazing view of the ocean, harbor, and beach. 
Imagine the beautiful sunsets that will be seen from that roof! 

The tile work in both bathrooms is simply amazing! 
Both patterns add a great beachy statement to the bathrooms.
