Breezy Shores...

Oh my goodness. I am still going through my elle decos from the last 10 years, saving the bits I like and purging the rest. It's a long process, but with moving on the cards, the heat is on!

Anyway, at last I found the copy that made me fall in love with elle deco and get a subscription. It's from August 1999 and is a feature on a gorgeous little beach hut. Well, my taste has changed a lot since that shabby chic era, but my love of beach huts has not.

I wonder if the owner still has her beach hut, and what Breezy Shores is like now.


  1. oh my goodness, i remember that issue too! so gorgeous.

    the place we're staying in now, is just like a beach hut, all white and blue, so pretty!

    hope you're feeling better...x.

  2. Wow, moving house, new baby and STILL impressed!

    I have always loved Ellen O'Neill's Long Island house...all whitewashed panelling and crisp blue-and-white striped old linen...[wistful sigh]

  3. gotta get my ya-yas where i can flora! x

  4. Oh what a gorgeous house !!!love the colours, the simplcity, the coziness, the windows! Good luck with going through your magazines- it does look like fun!

    Kids are back at school for the first day today and so I intend to do the same as you, spend the day sorting through a veritable mountain of magazines, fuelled by much coffee!

    Work can start again next week..........

  6. I had to do just that when I moved house ~ but I couldn't part with my Wallpaper mags ....
    I dream of living in a little wooden hut on the beach with the woods behind....
