This week is our Spring Break and we’re spending a few days at a little seaside town on the Washington coast called Seabrook. It’s darling and idyllic with walking paths and sweeping views and community parks, shops and cafes.
It’s our first visit to the area and I’m smitten. Water of any type has my heart; but there is something particularly breathtaking about the ocean.
Last night after the kids went to bed (in their cute little room with four built-in bunks), Ryan opened up the back door and we stood out on the porch listening to the ocean roar. The stars were putting on a show, all was quiet and we just took it all in. How big and captivating is God’s magnificent creation.
Our short stay here has me thinking about all things coastal. The charming architecture with its natural shingles, deep overhangs, board and batten siding, metal roofs, dormer windows.
The friendly neighborhoods with wide sidewalks, front porches, window boxes and local shops.
And interiors that celebrate the surroundings without being over the top.
The house where we’re staying has a decidedly coastal style, but it’s done in a very neutral, subtle way.
Tall, abundant windows with simple white trim.
A statement chandelier made of oyster shells.
Pops of pretty turquoise.
Shades of blue and gray.
Classic blue and white striped ticking.
All this coastal loveliness makes me add ‘decorate a beach house’ to my bucket list.
If you’re looking for a relaxing getaway in Washington state, Seabrook is practically perfect in every way.
