Day dreaming: A New England beach house

Not that I don’t love Copenhagen right now, especially when it’s so nice and sunny out (okay, except for today). but one of the top travel destinations on my must-go-to-list (which is long and ever-increasing) is the East Coast of the United States, namely New England. Especially in the summer months, I would love to go up there and spend some time in one of the classic New England summer houses, typically decorated with a nautical/ coastal theme, lots of white and blue, and just the right pinch of shabby chic.

I’ve collected below some of my favorite pictures from Pinterest that I like to look through and dream myself away to sunny days spent reading on the front porch, tanning on the beach, sailing on the sea, walking on the pier, discovering New England’s typical seaside villages, and long nights with a nice barbecue and a glass of wine, with the sounds of the ocean in the background…

Lighthouse in Nantucket

Beach cottage

Classic blue and white interior

Classy white living room with blue accents

Love the four-poster bed

Another lovely bedroom with shutters for extra beach feeling

Pillows and linens

Wooden boxes - essential for the beach cottage style

Nautical decor all over!


If you don’t have a couple of hundreds bucks to spare for a last-minute plane ticket over there, you can capture some of the East Coast spirit with a classic cocktail, the Cucumber Cape Codder, made with vodka, cranberry juice, lime and cucumber. Here’s the recipe from Martha Stewart. Cheers!
