Welcome to my personal paradise, Hatteras Island, NC.
A little village on the island called Avon is where my family loves to vacation.
This modest 1960’s, 3 bedroom oceanfront beach cottage, called Aquarias, is a favorite rental home of ours.
It is quaint and cozy and feels like home.
Three doors down is this GORGEOUS cedar shake “cottage” with views of the Atlantic sunrises out front and the Sound sunsets out back.
Ok, back to reality now…
Each year we visit Aquarias I salivate at the possibilities of this home if I could get my hands on it!
Imagine these pine paneled walls white washed, new flooring in bamboo, and large sea grass rugs!
(That’s my husband and my oldest daughter….do teens EVER let go of their Itouch?)
Back to redecorating… Let’s reface the cabinets, and replace the appliances with stainless, and a watery sea glass tile backsplash like shown here would be gorgeous! .
New granite countertops and glass hurricane lanterns for lighting, glass floats, all new wall décor would be a nice addition.
Paneling, paneling, and more paneling…..
but with views like this,
I’ll put my decorating dreams on hold,
take in a deep sea salty breath…
and simply relax.
