Coastal Living {February}


It's that time again for my Coastal Living review. The cover had me at hello with the bright pink umbrella. I honestly haven't been able to put this issue down due to this villa in Round Hill, Jamaica. The design was done by Meg Braff.






I think it is time for a luxury vacation, any one else in? To see more images of this great villa go here.
My husband has also has mentioned going on a cruise once or twice and they have a great write up in the magazine that caters to your style and what cruise would fit you best. Maybe one day, well that's if I can get over my fear of water, yikes.

what a gorgeous destination, I love the matching twin beds. The bed ends are my favourite

I love the dark wood floor of the covered porch and the tile backsplash of the kitchen.
We're considering going on a 'leaf-peeping' cruise...new england island hopping in autumn. I'm more afraid of being around all those people all day than I am of the water though. :)

This definitely reminds me that I need a vacation and some bamboo furniture. A little of both would make me very happy!

Love Meg's work. She is actually one of my best friend's from college's cousin. Small world.

I would love to go on a tropical vacation- but no cruise for me. Never been on one- will never go on one!

This month's issue was like a mini-vacation. If anyone goes to Hawaii- drive the road to Hana!!!

I've ALWAYS dreamed of going to Round Hill! Isn't this where the Kennedy's used to vacation...? What a beautiful villa they've featured here. I want to move right into the bedrooms and never leave! XO

Those gorgeous tiles in the kitchen remind me of our visits to Turkey. And those bedrooms are lovely - I especially like the yellow one.

Estelle said...

Um, wow. Just wow. That umbrella is perfection. So want a backyard like that one. Might have to pick up this issue for some serious daydreaming.

Heather said...

It's just such a happy house! You could never be in a bad mood there!

Deb Di Maggio said...

I found the plastic looking blues and pinks a bit too much, but thats my own taste. Love the cane, te flooring and white kitchen.

Brandi said...

It's the tile in the kitchen -- that's Cupid's arrow straight through my heart. I mean, let's face it, the rest of the house is awesome too, but that tile seals the deal.

Char said...

i'm not so much scared of the water as i am of what's happening on a lot of cruise ships - yikes.

that pink umbrella is rather lovely.

Ms. Bright said...

Love that blue room with the twin beds. So so quaint and lovely. I need a vacation! I am so sick of winter.

Glad you liked the valentines! If only I hadn't broken a bagillion copyright laws..

Twist my arm - yeah I think I'd be up for a visit to this villa. Especially since the weather here is gray and cold. What a nice break that would be!
