Beach Houses - Folly Beach

As the outer bands of Hurricane Irene begin to knock at my door, I'm starting to rethink my obsession to find that oh so perfect beach house. Living at the beach comes with the reality of being washed out to sea if Mother Nature so decides.

Even so...................If one as beautiful as this one came along.........I could be tempted..................
Charleston Interior Designer Amelia Handegan's summer house at Folly Beach was featured in the July 2011 issue of Architectural Digest. I love the way she
combined a collection of textiles from around the world to bring in a global feel.
Sometime beach houses can seem a little "theme like". This one hits all the right notes.



Subtle.........but you still know that you are at the beach......................



Irene's knock is getting a bit louder and the ocean is not looking quite as calm as the photo below, so I'd better sign off and batten down the hatches.
Cheers!
