Colour My World

How gorgeous are these 2 beach cottages in the Bahamas! Ostentatious McMansions they're not, just honest, fun places to relax & enjoy.

Here's Tree House with its pretty balcony......

and turquoise & white shutters & french doors....

love the surprise of the chandelier in the dining room....

and the simple white kitchen....

and the turquoise bed & bench in the bedroom & the white-washed beams....

and the cute little bedroom tucked under the eaves.

Now here's Doll House, so cute in pink & white.....

with the pink kitchen curtains gently blowing in the breeze....

a splash of pink on the patio door.....

and more pink & crisp white......

While I don't think Doll House would suit the boys Fishing & Footy weekends away, I just couldn't resist it! Two delightful little gems to escape to.


  1. elles me font rêver ces maisons de poupées!!


  2. How gorgeous! Wouldn't it be fun to stay at one of these places? Love the pink, green and white colour scheme of one of the rooms - if I had a daughter, that was the colour scheme I was planning to use!

  3. I adore that little simple white kitchen. The rooms are so fresh and airy and relaxing. A true getaway. How I wish I was there!

  4. Calgon, take me away. These are BEAUTIFUL!

  5. Good Morning Miss Millie... love these little houses... you can see the breeze... so beautiful. A-M xx

  11. Millie! My bags are packed...which airport and when?? *sigh*

  22. Love simple white! One of these days I am going to do an ALL WHITE room. I long for one, but I have sort of an addiction to color..maybe I can do different shades of white! Congratulations on your Washington Post nod!
