While flipping through last month's House Beautiful last night (yes, I am months behind on all my magazines!) I came across the most darling beach house in California. The owner of the Balboa Island getaway lives in London for the majority of the year but summers on the island where she made many childhood memories. This darling abode is a perfect example of going 'crazy' with color and bold prints. If you choose things wisely they will work together and create a divine getaway within your very own home!
The owner of the Balboa Island home and I share a love for more than just all things pink and green...we also LOVE elephants!
I love that the designer brought black polka dots into the home. While many of us view black to be serious and drab she proves us all wrong!
The shabby chic look of this bedroom makes me want to cozy up with a good book or fun DVD.
Though the bathroom is full of prints, like the rest of the house, it too still maintains clean lines.
What a whimsical photo! Aren't the light fixtures in the kitchen to die for?
Ah, vacation home decorating at it's finest!
I spy a Keep Calm and Carry On poster! I wonder if the resisdents know they can order one with an elephant motif from Annechovie? It would fit right in!
