Hey friends! It's been a busy few weeks of our kids wrapping up their school year, us working on patio updates for Summer (here's our plan), and my husband and I just celebrating our 16th year anniversary! After going through some rough patches, this year's anniversary just seemed a bit more special and it was nice to just send the kids off to Grandma's and stay at the beach house.

He surprised me with one of my fave flowers - stargazer lilies!

Beach House Art Work and Rope Basket - Coastal Interiors

Hanging Rope Basket by Sewcialite (this is where we currently corral our keys) / Sailboat Artwork by Melissa Lyons Art / Large Clear Glass Vase (about 6" x 6" x 12") alternative set of 4 / Reclaimed Wood Entryway Console Table from Homegoods (alternative)

I have to admit I've been feeling pulled in a million directions lately. I've been brainstorming content for the blog and Instagram and it's going to look a little different for Summer since I'm home with our 3 kiddos until school starts back up again in September.  I'm pretty protective of our time together and boundaries, but I also LOVE to design and help you guys get that Coastal look!

With that said, I recently asked you guys on Instagram if you preferred more of a product round up style of blog posts (such as Coastal Dining Chairs or lighting or rugs, etc.) OR if you preferred more edesigns.  You guys gave me a good laugh because the results were basically split down the middle. Of course. ;-)

Instgram Poll for Coastal Interiors



I'll be kicking off a series for the Summer (more to come) that will include a mix of edesigns, product round ups, and personal projects from our beach house like our Master Bedroom reveal, our Patio and some furniture makeovers. I can't wait to share all of these and also more details about a fun project in the works that will help you guys in your own decorating endeavors!

Onto today's edesign and all the epic sales for the 4th of July Holiday - they're GOOD!

I came across this storage bench with cute wicker basket and drawers as I've been debating what to put in our own entryway.  As for the It's possible to get multiples of these and put them side by side and get the built in look without them actually being built in. Plus they come in multiple colors and are a great option for refinishing if you wanted to!

The diamond rug below is also currently 55% off with hundreds of other rugs so if you're on the lookout for a good rug at a good price, check out all the options HERE!

Serena & Lily is also having a 20% off sitewide sale and their rugs are some of my favorites for getting that Coastal Chic look!
