- But assures you a headache :D
Firsthome, I appreciate your comments, suggestions, advice etc, it must have been very traumatizing going through all those posts :D
I really like the picture you attached, I think that is definitely doable...I will take a look at the website. Also liked your other suggestion, I think that pretty much encorporates in everything everyone else has suggested as well as what I want. So...Now I have two ideas..HM!!!
Now that my vacation seems to be drawing to an abrupt end I will have to get started with something very quickly. I will start a new thread when that happens :D :D

Hopefully this thread can go to where all threads go to die now :D :D Don't want to be responsible for people not going to work just to get through it all....

I don't know if this is your taste but you could also do something like these over your mantle but maybe just in blues and greens and sandy colours to go with the beachy look I am sure you could paint something similar to these yourself.

Not sure if you are interested but here is the website of the gallery that carries these actual ones I beleive....

they are in the abstracts section pages 37-40.

after reading all of those posts, I am almost too tired out to type a response...but here goes anyway.

I love the white sofas! They look great in your room. They don't look wrinkly at all to me. I think you are achieving your relaxed beachy look.

I don't mind your fireplace at all. I think it can work well for the beachy look too. I like your idea of a mirror over the firplace instead of that photo(when I first saw that pic I wondered for a sec if it was an ode to the founder of Ikea :D. I think a mirror and then maybe a large lantern made of black or silver metal with glass sides on each end of your mantle might look good and add some presence and not get lost against the wall colour. Maybe also a few larger stones or shells scattered randomly around those items to fill up the mantle a bit more.

I haven't checked the Ikea site to see the coffee table you mentioned yet but I was thinking that some toss cusions of black and white ticking might look nice on you sofas to pull more black colour over to the sofas to tie in with your fireplace.

Hope I didn't repeat any ideas. I am having a hard time remembering what everyone else suggested. It is a great room so far!

Cuckoo for us means crazy as an old bat!!! I think we'll keep this translation, it suits her better. I love your broken English, you sound very sweet. Don't change a thing. I come from a long line of broken English users, it's very charming.

After some serious consideration, I have decided not to tell but will wait until the door opens.

Whatever you said Dreamer, I am sure it was good.

Elise. After all, it is better not to inspire envy in the unwashed masses, their bitter lot is hard enough for them to bear. Our propensity for seeking a "common" ground has allowed the interaction, in accordance with Mother's recommendation to engage in charitable works. Good for one's character, or at least the image of one's character.

....commoners!!! We have merely brought ourselves down to a more common level so as to better communicate with the masses. Now, I myself have never posted any pictures of my opulent abode so as not to distract from the quaint little homes you have allmade available for our members. I know Dreamer, Decor 8 and Luv2 feel the same.

The cubes are footstools from Ikea, called Pallbo. A great suggestion by Artsy...Not that I wouldn't have figured out to use them for that myself :D :D
Pay no attention to the others, mere commoners they are :D

....Dreamer will of course provide all of the big words to fill in the gaping holes in the stucture of this epic book!!

but I am hung up on the final chapter. How did Lina know so quickly that Aan was cuckoo when it took the rest of us two or three threads to figure it out?

I think all of us that have contributed to this thread have successfully written a book here. Now we need to break it up into chapters, write an intro, Title, and off to the publishers. Mambo girl can draw the cover, and Dreamer, Decor 8, Luv2, and of course myself can provide witty repertoire. We can all retire as wealthy imaginary forum assistant authors. Is it a cuckoo idea, Coucou?

:) Thank you! :)
Yes, it is a cute little house, and with an awesome view of the lake, very befitting for a beachy theme :)

Except for all the spiders....Did I say the house is ancient? :D

I have absolutely NO idea what the colour is on the wall. It looks like a sandy yellow. It was on the walls when we moved in...

I think the fireplace goes with the style of the house, it is just not what I would have picked had it been up to me. I'm either a luv2 fireplace or Swedish oven kinda gal :D Are you familiar with Swedish ovens?
I would love your suggestions for decor on it! :)
Keep in mind, I can't paint the mantle or grout etc :(

I think the fireplace is slate, I really have no idea, I try not to pay too much attention to it :D
Not a big fan of it, can you tell? :D

I think I have decided to do a mirror on the mantle. Picture will go elsewhere :)

They're not glued to them :D
Actually I do both, and I usually don't strangle them as much as they look in the pics. Poor little suffering curtains :D
Thank God you can't see that they remained unhemmed :D Sinful, I know!
