  2. I'm a huge beach lover. I've always said the stork dropped me off at the wrong place. And I've always dreamed of having a beach theme c-mas tree like in that 3rd picture. Maybe some day!

  14. Hi Simone - love love love the third image of the living room and the tree - can I move in tomorrow? Such an open, bright, fresh room. Completely the opposite to anything we have in HK - apartments, apartments, and more apartments :(

    Would love to win an issue of this magazine, but not sure if it will depress me and make me want to move back home...

    Hope you are feeling better now xox

  15. I have been in process of about a year of changing my colors in my home to coastal colors inspired by Coastal Living Magazine, and this blog and I love living around them!!

  16. Sigh. Such a beautiful magazine. I wish I lived by the beach instead of in this land-locked province. But one can always dream, right? I'm interested in finding out about those 50 Beachy Gifts for under $50!

  36. Being a beach girl..born and raised with sand between my toes..I WANT THEM ALL!!!! this was eye candy for my soul when I sit looking out at sunshiny sparkles on new fallen snow..no way can I convince myself that is sugary white beach sand from home!! I'm trying with all my might tho! come Saturday, I'll be on the beach at home burying my toes in the sand while toasting another sunset (to be documented with trusty traveling companions Nikon D40 and Kodak EasyShare..
    Make my dreams become even more true..Make me THE winner!!!
    hugs and smiles from Denver..

  38. Yay, how fun, a give away! I live in the middle of the USA, no oceans, but I love the ocean and making old things look cute. I was at my 91 year old Gma's farm and asked if I could have an old table from the barn. She said, "no, it will junk up your place." I said, "Gma, I love taking old, ugly things, painting them, and making them look new." She responded, "I'm available." :)

  39. I love, love all these beautiful pictures and my fave one is that verandah...can I move there? I'll just grab my cup of coffee and I'm ready. I would love to win! Have a beautiful day!

  40. Oh it is so nice to finely be back blogging and then find such a wonderful giveaway here. Coastal Living is my favorite magazine, of course. Things have been tight around The Hut and I haven't picked one up for months.

    Would love to be kicking back and enjoying that porch!

  42. Hi Simone, loving the pictures you have chosen I could just imagine the kids & myself decorating a tree in that room (gorgeous) love the chairs in the last shot would be great sitting there with a glass of mulled wine!! I will have to go to the shops & find that magazine now :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. HI Simone
    Hope you are feeling better and getting some rest. I love this magazine but never quite manage the latest copy being International.

    I love the rooms you have picked. Room #1 and #3 are my favourites out of this bunch. I'd love to have that verandah right now.

    Take care xx Julie

  44. Hi Simone
    I received my copy of CL a few weeks ago...and read it on the shores of the Atlantic. I remember every photo you shared and especially love the centerpiece in the "green" dining room. I love the silver and mercury glass with greens...that's what my table will look like tomorrow, when I finally get it decorated. I will also be using some Candlewick to reflect light. Can't wait to get started...

    Like you, I have been under the weather and filled with the "don't feel like its". Now I can finally get the decorating done...
    Have a super fabulous weekend...
    Hugs,
    Jane (Artfully Graced)

  48. Hi, my name is Patti and I am just learning about the blog world. Its just in time because after 30 years of living in the middle of the Mojave Desert in CA my husband and I have bought a home around the block from the beach! I still cannot believe it...I'm afraid its all been a dream! We are trying to do some updating on this house but after so many years being in the desert I just don't have a clue..I need so much help. Are their any blogs that are for people like me that can get help?
    I am learning alot by reading many of the blogs and loving it!!
    I hope to read yours often!
    Patti

  52. Blue and white, does it for me everytime. It just says BEACH. So therefore, I love all the images. Combine beach and Christmas and it equals Australia!! Yay, lucky us!!
    I would so love a copy of this mag. I have been trying to subscribe for ages but no luck on the website and the newsagent here says it is not on their 'list'. Any ideas? So loving your blog, so appropriate to the coast.
