Well here we are! On the 2022 Summer Home Tour hosted by Marty from A Stroll thru Life. Her style is so classic and beautiful and even though I haven’t met her I have a feeling she is the same way in person!
Welcome if you’ve found your way here from Cindy down in Texas and County Road 407, how lovely is her farmhouse style?
In the summer I love to declutter from winter’s coziness, hang sheets on the line to dry in the sun, switch out the dark bedding for a lighter versions, and bring in some clean scented candles…anything sea salt is my go to!
Here’s a short tour of Lost Cay Cottage… our little home at the beach!
These gorgeous hydrangeas are the first to bloom in our yard, I just love them!
If it’s not obvious enough to guests 🙂
New dining room chairs from Restoration Hardware, they’re white, they’re beautiful…they’re usually covered with towels…lol…if you know our dog Beau you know why…he makes his bed on any chair possible!
Nothing says summer like lemons! I found a Creamy Vegan Greek Lemon Rice Soup (Avgolemono) recipe the I can not wait to make from FoodByMaria…I’ll let you know how it turns out!
Our primary bedroom is where I also decorate for warmer weather, lightening up the bedding and adding a little love note to my favorite season 🙂

Love your beach cottage so very much! That front porch would be my spot to hang out all the time. The dog bed on the porch is so cute too.
Jayne via Chalking Up Success says
Such a pretty coastal cottage! I love the calming colors you chose for the porch, what a lovely place to sit and enjoy the day! Beau is such a sweetie too!
I love everything about this! Such a beautiful beach cottage! I would never want to leave! Happy Summer!
Shand, your home is so welcoming and full of summer vibes. I love it! And the fact that you have to keep towels in the chairs cracks me up. We used to have a dog like that and I would do the same. They deserve it for all the love they give unconditionally. Hope you have a wonderful summer. Loved the entire tour and hopping with you.
Anne from Simply2Moms says
Your beach cottage is so charming, Shand! I love all the summery details you added. So happy to be touring together this week! Happy Summer!

You have the sweetest beach cottage, Shand. I am so happy to finally get a chance to learn more about you and see your beautiful blog. I can now confess that we have blankets on our white chairs for our pups as well. I love your style and am inspired by another beach cottage perspective. So lovely!
Shand, I found your tour from my friend Cindy at Country Road 407 and I’m so glad I did. It’s stunning. And your pup is the sweetest. I’m going to share a link to your beautiful summer tour with my readers in tomorrow’s weekly recap post.
Everything is so easy-breezy beautiful! I love all your light and bright accessories and the whole coastal vibe. Makes me super excited for our beach vacation and our future beach cottage when we retire in just a few short years!
So fun touring with you! Happy summer!

Such a fresh and fun cottage. I adore the neutral palette with pops of color. The poochies are too cute. Truly a joy to be on tour with you!
Calypso in the Country says
Wow, those pink hydrangeas really caught my eye! Gorgeous! I love your cottage tour with the soft neutrals and splashes of color. So inspiring!
I am sorry I am so late visiting. Life gets in the way sometimes. I loved the tour of your wonderful Beach House. How nice to have a place to get away and just relax. Thanks so much for joining the tour again this season, I always love visiting.
Love your home! What a fun summer place to relax. I need that pillow!
