Sand Floor Beach House Chic

I absolutely LOVE this - This takes beach house to the next level no? VIA ELLE DECOR

  1. Looks amazing! Not sure how practical it would be... can you imagine a red wine spill, you'd have pink sand!

    PS I'm having a giveaway on my blog if you're interested :)

  2. A heated sand floor? How wonderful! Years ago we visited the Bitter End YC in the BVI's, after dinner they played movies in an open wall theatre with benches and sand on the floor. It was so wonderful to watch a movie, while digging your feet into the sand.
    Just did a post on a great home decor shop in Chamonix, France filled with Chalet Chic decor. In each of the rooms the floors were covered with a different color of stones or pebbles, that added natural element was so wonderful.
