Do You Sea Blue?

Hello friends! Time has just flown by as of late. Hard to believe it’s mid-July – and it has already been one long, HOT, eventful summer! Sadly, our busy summer meant we at 365Beach.com also had to be away for a while taking care of business (as they say). No two ways about it – between the oil spill in our beloved Gulf Coast and our time we’ve had to be away from our blogging friends, it has left us feeling a little blue!

Not to worry. True-blue beach lovers like us don’t stay down for long – even if our “happy place” is covered in oil!  Matter of fact, even though we were on a bit of a blogging hiatus from The Daily Wave, we spent every possible moment scavenging for interesting new bits of coastal inspiration, from beachy home decor to engaging nautical personalities. Over the rest of the summer we’ll be sharing these terrific finds and inspiring stories with you.

To get things started and help us lift our spirits, we decided to immerse ourselves (and you!) in a sea of blue… we put together a collection of pics showcasing wonderful seaworthy rooms that make us happy to be blue! Enjoy!

While we love the outdoor escape, like the one above, we are just as happy to soak up the blues in this classic beach bathroom (below)!

 Blue can be striking in any shade. We love the punch of bold blue in this Nantucket entryway, designed by T. Keller Donovan. The nautical touches make this a classic that never goes out of style. (Confession: we’re not crazy about the plaid tablecloth – forgive us TKD!)
