Thursday Doors

One last blast of colorful beach houses from Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. I even found two doors that weren’t white, and that is an accomplishment.

There is no history lesson with these doors. They are just great beach homes that I see when I walk.

But, if I have grabbed your attention, and you’re thinking housing colors and decorations, here’s a chandelier we saw this week at the Pottery Barn. Start saving your bottles, and you too could create a one of a kind light fixture if you have a few DIY skills and a welder.

Happy Thursday. πŸ™‚

    Such lovely beach houses. And that chandelier. Clever! But it gives me the giggles to think of it hanging in our modest home. It sure would be a sight and no doubt would get lots of comments from friends who come to visit. πŸ˜‰

    The beach houses are beautiful. I love how they utilize the space beneath the flood elevation for strolling through – so much southern charm!
    And I hope the worst of winter is over for your return home next week – those last four blasts have been unbelievable….watching in amazement from Michigan where snow levels have been very modest this season.

    Hmmm, I have some D-I-Y skills and I have a welder, but $199 would be tough to beat. Then again, I would have the benefit of emptying the bottles. That’s got to be worth something πŸ˜‰

    Great pictures, Judy. Safe travels when you head north.

    The beach house pictures are a welcome relief to the snow and cold ravaging the nation. We just got rid of most of our snow cover……and here it comes again!

    Beautiful beach homes. They look so welcoming. That chandelier is certainly unique! Some people are exceptionally clever and talented. I wouldn’t be one of them, but I love seeing what others have created.

    With all the doors you’ve seen in SC, no doubt you’ll be happy to start seeing New England doors signaling you’re almost home!!

  9. I could see that chandelier in a small boutique bar at the beach! Love the colorful houses too. . I look across the street at the neighborhood of beige house, and think “how boring”. I like a little color! ((Ours is Jade Green, with red pillars and pink & grey trim)). Every time someone on our street paints their house, we cross our fingers and pray for no white or beige!

    What wonderful looking beach homes. Makes me long for the warmer temps of summer that much more.
    That chandelier wouldn’t work in our place either but I do admire the creative spirit of whoever made it.

  11. Great beach houses, Judy, and the promise of warmer weather is welcome. As for the chandelier, I’m not a fan of most of them (much too ornate for me), although for the cabin in Wyoming, one of those made from horn would be fabulous, although too expensive for us!

    Haha, true for California too, not many doors are colored in South CA, but more wood colored where I live now! If I would have a bottle chandelier, it would need to be shorter bottles, for it not to monopolize the room. Great find, Judy!

  13. These homes are so pretty. Wouldn’t it be lovely to sit on the steps and enjoy the view. We’ve seen a similar chandelier made with rum bottles. It was five layers!

    It was the 3rd house half hidden behind the palms that caught my eye. Palm trees say “warm and sunny” to me and this particular scene wants me to be there. I’m sure of it. I could hear them calling my name ….

  15. I look at that chandelier and have to laugh. Where in my world would such a think go? We are way to simple for anything that BIG πŸ™‚ Redecorating is for those who can afford to fix a whole room at one time.

    The only place I can envision that chandelier fitting in is in a wine bar! πŸ˜‰

    “Blast” is right! Not just color, but sunshine — I felt warmer just looking! I do like those double green doors at the top of that vast stairway. As to that chandelier, it appears that Pottery Barn took the bottle tree to a whole new level. I do like that idea of switching bottles from time to time for different looks — and think of the good time emptying them!

  19. I really like that blue and white house, but the green n cream colored house(s) with that huge staircase wins it for me this week. Lovely!

    I would need an elevator in homes like these… but the homes are on stilts for a reason, the potential of high water. Oh well. I wonder if they have a ‘dumbwaiter’ for groceries, etc. Some elevated homes on Hilton Head had them.

  21. I love the first house most of all. Also, if I may, let me link to the light fixture – more light on the bottles than your find – which my father had it made after his own design:
