My Favorite Clippings from October Coastal Living

So, I discussed earlier this week some of the inspirations for my own home exterior face lift via the Coastal Living edition for October.  Well, the images are finally up on their website for some of my favorites and so I will share them with you as well as my home's redressing in progress.....

The turquoise doors and shutters are painted....the mailbox and art have been sprayed white and I am waiting on a new house number display to take down the old ones as well as a few other ideas up my sleeve including outdoor furniture of some sort!  I can't wait to share the DIY in process for the paint and spray paint projects and those will be coming shortly.

For now here are some of my favorite inspirations from Coastal Living in October!

Here they have a door very similar in color to my new door--except a little more green in the turquoise...and that great starfish wreath I wrote about in the earlier post!

Here are some beachy and bohemian style accessories to wear in front of your well-appointed, light and bright home:

And here are some great sneak peeks into Coastal Living's Ultimate Beach House 2011 and it is gorgeous!  Here are some of my favorite views:

I also love this bright kitchen with flip flops and a great seating bench nook (something I am hoping to DIY in something similar soon)...and I am drooling over the upholstery on those chairs...

A great guest bedroom but I would love it as my master with that fabric headboard, valances with a wonderful moorish shape, footstools, and antlers, not to mention the rug...the colors are crisp and subtle enough as to not overwhelm but there is plenty of yumminess going on here...

oh and ps: 
I am loving my new pillow from One Kings Lane!  My chair, or rather my husband's recliner, still needs some work in terms of it's dressing but this pillow is doing wonders for my love of it :).  I will talk more on the origins of my mohair love (last month) and the apartment therapy house tour that brought it on!

From me, my pillow, and my sniffly cold...a good night to you :)!
