Greek Revival: A Perfect Beach Home

beach home living room decor ideasWhen I think of a beach or vacation home I think of a home with some level of restrain in the decor but comfortable enough to serve its purpose.  Now that summer is approaching and soon will be time to escape somewhere to relax for a couple of weeks, I find myself longing to own a vacation home where we can dine and sleep at ease and where we won’t feel like a tourist.  Case in point is this Greek home with a garden so inspiring that I may not even want to go outside.  The elegant but laid-back decor of soothing and sophisticated tones of blue and beige in the upholstered pieces combined with the washed wood furniture, cane chairs, bare floors and beam ceilings painted in light blue makes this home a perfect place to come back at the end of the day with lots of veggies and a bottle of wine to cook.  I don’t know where in Greece this home is located but, the use of Turkish tiles as wainscoting and its pointed arched doorways give this home just the right amount of global chic which would be appealing to a world traveler.
