Some of those pictures don't really evoke coastal, or sea for me, except, too obviously, the marketed candles. Without the headline, I wouldn't have guessed the inspiration. Is he using coastal loosely to mean a relaxed natural style?
Don't get me wrong, I love coastal style. I live on an island. I'm just not seeing the connection here though.

She looks like she's been strangled to death. Is that supposed to be hip or interesting?

I also have a chihuahua with an underbite. Winnie's snaggle tooth slays me. Wonderfully goofy and cute.
House is nice too :)

The last one terrifies me. Almost as bad as having Balinese marrionettes in your home.

I, too, never thought I'd like those colors but done well it can look really classy. I like that the photos demonstrate how this combo can be used in every decorating style.

I put my son in his bouncy chair. We kept one in the bathroom for that reason. I never had an issue.

Sgroi,
Oh your comment brought tears to my eyes! My son is not yet two and I have to tell myself to live in the moment and not rush around but enjoy him each day because one day...
Sometimes a stranger on the internet can share their feelings that resonates so deeply it could have been you. Peace to you. I hope your "empty nest" is soon filled with joy and new ventures.

Lovely, peaceful, soothing, cozy space. It's one thing to find something beautiful. It's another to find a place that feels like home. This place is not staged or over decorated. It feels real yet is gorgeous! Well done.

Ziggy's smile made my day, what a sweet pup! I love Bainbridge, very pretty and now very expensive. Lovely home. But I have to say that mirror over the leather couch also made me think it would come crashing down. It's ok not to stage your home. This house is obviously lovely enough without staging.

depends on where you live. If you live in an artsy, funky, "hip" area you are probably ok leaving it. If you live in a fairly suburban area, no.
